Six Flags America

Saturday, September 15, 2001 1:19 PM
This is my first post in a while. Due partly to my summer of traveling(visited some cool cities and finally went to Cedar Point!), school restarting, and my family preparing to move to Washington D.C..
So, I was wondering if any of you kind people can tell me how Six Flags America is. If you have been to BGT also, can you compare the two. Thanks everybody!

Check about 20 previous threads for information on SFA.  It's a nice park with some good coasters.  You will also find that you are in day trip range of BGW,  PKD, Hershey, and others if you get really ambitious.

SFA has good rides that are run horribly. BGW has less thrilling rides except Apollo and Alpengiest, but it is a much better ran park and nicer place to be.

As a season pass holder, I ususally visit SFA at least once a week. There are good days and bad days, but all in all a good park with room for expansion. Since this park became part of the SF family in 1998, they have added new attractions each year.

Thanks for the insight guys. I'm looking foward to visiting SFA, BGW, and PKD, but I'm going to miss IOA, the Disney parks,Sea World, and BGT.

As a park SFA *ABSOLUTELY SUCKS* compared to BGT. Everything @ BGT was run so well (save the horrible loading procedure on Gwazi), the park was beautiful and you just cant beat free BEER!

However, SFA has some GREAT rides. S:ROS and ROAR are two of my favorites. Batwing is the most intense coaster around. And ROAR and Wild One are really good woodies.

Also, as people have mentioned, there are three other park that most in the DC area (like myself) call home. BGW I've never been to (may remedy that this weekend). PKD, while very well run, just doesnt have a whole lot of rides that I like. But HersheyPark is the best overall park in the region. It is also the best for families. None of the rides are overly intense (save maybe Wildcat and The Mouse), but they are good pure fun. I've been twice this year and I think for next season I will get a pass.

In any case, you are moving from a theme park hotbed to a coaster hotbed. You should be happy, especially since you will have one of just about every type of caster within a 4-5hr drive...
