How far is it from Dc to 6 flags? Does the metro extend that far?

I hate to dissuade you from going, but I myself wouldn't go there with a military escort!!!

6 Flags is in Largo, Prince George's County, Maryland. Prince Georges has been a hell-hole since the late 70s, early 80s.

If you knew the area and were driving, I'd say it wouldn't be that bad. But relying on public transportation in PG County is a bit iffy. And, Largo is in a bad area of an already bad county.

Six Flags is about 20 miles from the city. If I can remember, the metro does not extend to the park, however I may be mistaken ( I drive since it's so close), and you may be able to take a bus to the park. You can try:

www.wmata.com .....and get phone numbers or e-mail them and you may be able to find out.

The closest Metro would be Largo Town Center on the Blue line. You can take a taxi from there. You can also take a bus to there by checking the schedule at www.wmata.com, but as the previous poster said, the busses in PG county aren't so great.
