Six Flags America will open for 10 days of Spring Break events on Saturday, March 27 - with several new attractions among the park's line-up.
The Maryland theme park will be open every day through April 5, and will then open only on weekends until the start of the full 2010 summer season on May 29. Six Flags America has confirmed that two new shows will debut during Spring Break, although the new Thomas Town expansion will not open until later this summer.
The new shows are the Treasure of Pirate Cove stunt show and the Looney Tunes Dance Off, featuring Bugs Bunny and friends. The season will also see the addition of a Rock Wall and new games including "Quarterback Challenge" and "High Striker".
Opening hours during Spring Break will be 10.30am - 6pm, with tickets costing $49.99 for adults and $24.99 for children. Season passes (valid at Six Flags parks nationwide) are currently available for the same price as an adult single-day ticket - ensuring that Six Flags America features on TPT's list of the best-value Six Flags passes.
Six Flags America's main draw for the new season is likely to be Thomas Town, which will be the largest Thomas-themed area in North America when it opens in summer 2010. With the park featuring a number of thrill rides including seven rollercoasters, it is clearly aiming to attract families with younger children with its largest expansion in over a decade.
No opening date has been confirmed for Thomas Town, although Six Flags is likely to be targeting the Memorial Weekend (May 29). Full details of the rides and attractions that will feature the new area, along with an extensive image gallery, can be found in TPT's recent news article.
