Summer Fun—Day 23: Spend a day at Six Flags

Visit Six Flags America for a fun day of rides and waterslides, and check out the amusement park's newest attractions.

New Wonder Woman rideIf you didn't make it to Six Flags last summer, head on over to check out the tallest new attraction in Maryland, WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth extreme swing ride. This ride stands at 240-feet whisking riders through the air at speeds up to 40 mph. WONDER WOMAN gives riders a spectacular view of the park and Maryland landscapes. You must be 44 inches tall to ride.


If the day starts to heat up, head over to the attached water park to enjoy the brand new Wahoo RIver opening this summer. Additional attractions such as Tornado and The Penguins River Blizzard offer a fun way to keep kids cool and entertained. Parents can enjoy lounge chairs and umbrellas on the deck surrounding the attraction while the kids play.

Park hours vary so check the website as you plan your visit. Buy online tickets in advance to avoid lines and save money with online-only offers. Six Flags is now offering summer sale tickets for $38.99.
