Six Flags America's Wild One celebrates 100 years

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Six Flags inherited the coaster when it bought and rebranded the park in 1998. The property was previously known as Adventure World and Wild World before that. The D.C.-area amusement park first opened in 1982. So, how can a 100-year-old coaster be at a place that only dates back to the early 1980s? That’s because for 69 years prior to operating in Maryland, it was the featured attraction at a seaside amusement park in Massachusetts.

Rode it two weeks ago. It's still running really well after a hundred years. I wish I'd gotten to ride it before it was altered.

I still remember seeing these commercials when it was "new". RIP Big John Studd...
