UPDATE: The winner of the two tickets is Donne! Have a great time!
Thanks to Comcast and Six Flags America, I have two free adult tickets to Six Flags America Washington/Baltimore for use either Saturday or Sunday this weekend. Comment on this post before midnight tonight for a chance to win.
Friends of APISS are often amazed that we take our preschoolers and toddlers to this theme park. What many do not know is that there are tons of things for little ones to enjoy. We spend a good deal of time in Looney Tunes Town, the area of the park especially for kids 1-6 years of age. The kids love the gentle rides on trains, carousels and bumper cars. The costumed cartoon characters are cruising around and there's a stage where they perform dances and storytimes. Other parts of the park have rides that the entire family can enjoy together, like the hot air ballon family ferris wheel and the tea cups. And we love the kid-oriented performances like the silent wild west stunt show and musical performances.
This weekend is all about Halloween at Six Flags. During the day little kids can wear their costumes and trick or treat around the park that is decorated for the spooky season. At night, teens and adults can enjoy Fright Fest - a slightly scarier celebration of Halloween.
Six Flags America is a reasonable, and local, amusement park outing, especially when compared to theme parks with happy rodents at the helm. Kids 2 and under are free, adult tickets are 2 for 1 when you buy them online or even less if you are a AAA member. We brown bag our lunch and store it in a locker to save cash, load the diaper bag with healthy snacks and waters and we get out of the park spending less than $100 for a day to remember. With two free adult tickets in your pocket, you'll spend even less.
Here is our set of photos so you can see the family fun. Six Flags is open on weekends in October, after that it closes until Spring 2009. See calendar.
