Six Flags America in Bowie, Md. opens on March 19 for the 2022 season with a slew of updates, including new shows and festivals, single rider lanes, and retracking for the Wild One and Roar roller coasters.
Summertime means festivals, and for the 2022 season the lineup includes the popular Coca-Cola July 4 Fest, Fright Fest, and Boo Family-Friendly Halloween Experience, plus an all-new Viva La Fiesta featuring live entertainment and Latin flavors on select weekends in May. Two additional festivals will be announced soon.
Three attractions have also been updated to include Single Rider lanes, lessening the wait times at Superman: Ride of Steel, The Joker’s Jinx, and Voodoo Drop.
Two new shows are coming to the park, too. “Old Town Showdown” wild west gameshow recruits select audience members to help keep the town safe from outlaws. “Block Party” interactive dance show keeps the family fun going.
Aviator Grill now offers new menu items such as grilled steak and chicken cheesesteaks and flavored lemonades. Tillamook ice cream has been added to the menu at Coffee & Cones.
During the park’s down time, the Wild One and Roar wooden roller coasters underwent a refurbishment that replaced more than 1,000 feet of track for a smoother ride experience.
Less noticeable but equally important enhancements include new pathway seating; additional benches, trash bins, and picnic tables; updated HVAC units at the Heritage House and ChopSix restaurants; and electric vehicle charging stations.
Six Flags’ The Flash Pass Q-bot will transition to mobile Q-Smart technology, allowing guests to use a mobile phone app to schedule ride times, order food, rent a locker, and more.
“Our team has worked tirelessly all winter to bring a multi-million-dollar list of seen and unseen enhancements for guest enjoyment throughout the park,” said Park President Rick Howarth. “As the region’s most central theme park, we are focused on making the best experience for each guest during every visit.”
Six Flags has partnered with ID.me for even greater access to exclusive discounts for active duty, veterans, and military spouses and families.
All visitors can take advantage of a new three-tiered Pass Program.
- The Thrill Seeker Pass is ideal for those who visit often.
