The staff was RUDE and very unprofessional. They discriminate. I will never go there again. Extremely unprofessional people. Worthless place to go., It is worse than down town Atlanta.

If you go during a weekend or holiday expect long waits for everything and having to have an eagle eye to get a chair at the wave pool. But overall it was quite a fun day out, we went first thing when they opened which is advisable because as the day wore on more and more rides were being temporarily... More

My experience after spending over $400.00 for my family was very disappointing. It was raining the first 5 hours and most of the rides and games were closed. My nephew and his cousin ages 25 and 10 where put out and both given $50.00 citations for playing with a basketball in front of the game stand. The 10 year old... More

The rides here were in much better condition than parks with the same rides. The coasters were a lot smoother than others we've experienced. We had a good time!

I will start off by saying that we did enjoy our day at Six Flags America and I would never advise anyone to stay away from this park. The setting for the park is nice and I actually do not mind the odd layout given the space they have to work with. However, I gave it this rating because saying... More

This Six Flags park seems to have a hit or miss schedule when it comes to my experiences there. The past few visits have been good overall. The employees are friendly and generally efficient. The ride selection is not bad. A few more coasters and spinning rides will help disperse crowds on the busiest days. Visiting during the week is... More

I had a season pass for the past 2 summers, it wasn't my idea. My mother in law thought it would be a good idea for the kids and something we could all do during the weekends. From the very beginning it was nothing but trouble. Outdated rides that break down daily. Not enough staff, the staff that is there... More

This was our first time going to Bowie. We purchased season passes last year and decided to drive down from NJ. Pulling into the parking lot I was very impressed. I'm handicapped and use a scooter. The handicap parking is the closest I have ever seen at an amusement park. Additionally the rest rooms were wheelchair accessable. Once we entered... More
