I'm thrilled about having an event at Six Flags America and hope as many of you as possible will take part.

See you there!

Perhaps SOMEONE will bring up the question of why the park has been passed over for a coaster time & time again over the last decade & given an answer as to when the next major addition will be made at the park?


Not to start a rant, but the answer to that question will probably be an "I don't know".

The park keeps going threw new GM's so they probably won't know. The only person that would have an answer for that was Terry Prather. He worked under the Dan Snyder and Shapiro stint. I once asked him if he would be able to convince Mark Shapiro to relocated Batman: The Ride from Prather's SFNO, and he replied back saying "I'm really trying to convince him".

Prather is now the president for one of the Sea World parks.

NEW FOR 2011

Outwit, Outlast, Outplay!
SURVIVOR™ LIVE debuts at Six Flags America on May 27

Six Flags America, Maryland’s premier destination for family-friendly fun, today announced a brand new thrill. Beginning Friday, May 27, guests can experience stories from exotic locales around the world in SURVIVOR LIVE, a new, interactive, stage show adventure based on one of the world’s most popular reality shows SURVIVOR.

A joint effort between the Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, CBS Consumer Products and New York-based entertainment company RWS and Associates, SURVIVOR LIVE puts guests’ minds and bodies to the ultimate test as audience members compete in contests designed to challenge their endurance, memory and strength.

SURVIVOR LIVE is an exhilarating half-hour show for guests of all ages, igniting the stage with cutting-edge music and choreography, state-of-the-art sets, and lavish costumes. Guests interact with both live stage performers and clips from the EMMY® Award-winning television series as four audience members compete against each other in a series of challenges. At the end of the show, only one contestant will remain standing, with the person who has outwitted, outplayed and outlasted the others named “the ultimate Survivor.”

“We are thrilled to bring the excitement of SURVIVOR LIVE to Six Flags America,” said John Winkler, Park President. “We expect the show to be a big hit with our park guests this summer as they have fun participating in this unique and challenging production.”

“In the comfort of our living rooms, we all wonder if we could confront the elements, win the challenges, find the idols and survive SURVIVOR,” said Liz Kalodner, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Consumer Products. “Now, SURVIVOR LIVE at Six Flags gives fans the chance to compete and experience SURVIVOR in person as fellow audience members battle it out on stage.”

SURVIVOR LIVE performs Thursday through Tuesday, at Six Flags America’s Grand Theater, from Friday, May 27 through Sunday, August 21. The show will also be held on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, and Saturday, September 3 through Monday, September 5. All performances of SURVIVOR LIVE are free with park admission. The show joins the world-class roller coasters, beautiful Hurricane Harbor water park, two children’s areas, and all of the other attractions that make Six Flags America a true family destination with something for everyone.

SURVIVOR, now in its 22nd season on CBS, is one of the most popular reality shows in television history. In the groundbreaking show, contestants are stranded in a remote location and divided into tribes who compete against each other in various physical and mental challenges, with the losing team forced to vote a member of their own tribe off the island. The goal is to outwit, outplay and outlast the other contestants to be the last man/woman standing and win the title of Sole Survivor and a $1 million prize.

They had a Chaos a few years ago. There is a reason all the SF parks got rid of them.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Even though I do not watch Survivor I like the idea of this show. I do think it is kinda random but hey if it works then random is good.

Six Flags America (SFA) Discussion Thread New for 2011

Postby jps294 » Fri Apr 08, 2011 6:11 am

Six Flags America finally gets something new after all!!!

Image


April 8, 2011
Slide the Amazon on Six Flags America’s new Zoomazon Falls
Maryland’s best theme park announces 2011 attractions

Maryland’s best theme and water park just got better, faster, more spectacular, and wetter as Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor pulls back the rainforest canopy to introduce Zoomazon Falls and opens the curtains on four sensational new shows!

This summer at Hurricane Harbor water park, guests leave the inner tubes behind as they climb to the top of an Amazonian-themed forest at Zoomazon Falls. There, they’ll take in a spectacular view before choosing their descent path on one of four, twisting, turning, body slides, each enhanced by waterfalls, tropical décor, jungle soundtracks, and more. Zoomazon Falls features more than a half-mile of wild, watery excitement.

Zoomazon Falls joins 15 “splash-tastic” water attractions at Hurricane Harbor, including Hurricane Bay, one of the world’s largest wave pools, the six-story funnel of fun Tornado, and two areas for little splashers: Crocodile Cal’s Caribbean Beach House and Buccaneer Beach. In 2010, Six Flags America upgraded the 70,000 square-foot pool deck and added shading around Hurricane Bay, plus introduced a new daily song and dance show to create a resort-style oasis for its guests.

This newly-announced slide project marks the latest addition to Maryland’s best theme park for the 2011 season. Six Flags America also announces four new stage spectaculars coming this season:

• SURVIVORTM LIVE!- Survivor is going live! Be prepared to travel to an island far away as the Emmy Award-winning reality show ignites on stage in this interactive adventure! This cutting-edge show highlights the best in music and choreography and features state-of-the-art sets and lavish costumes. Opens Friday, May 27.

• Bob the BuilderTM Live at Six Flags America - Join Bob the Builder™ and the Can-Do Crew as they call on the assistance of the builders in the audience for a very special project! With a little singing, dancing, building, and a whole lot of fun, this team is sure to get the job done! Opens Friday, May 27.

• Turn Up the Heat- Summertime at Six Flags America gets hotter than ever in this sizzling explosion of suntan-inspiring music and dance! Classic summer hits are given a contemporary makeover as they mash together with current pop culture to create a totally new, unique sound. Opens Saturday, May 28.

• Blundering Buccaneers Stunt Show- Pirate Red Rob causes chaotic mischief at the expense of the rest of the fleet in high-energy, comedic, stunt show adventure that is sure to inspire and amaze. Opens Saturday, April 16.

"We are pleased to give our guests even more thrills this summer at Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor as we introduce Zoomazon Falls and four brand new shows," said John Winkler, Six Flags America park president. “We’ve made a commitment to the Baltimore and Washington, DC region to continue to expand our entertainment offerings and make Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor the best place to spend the summer. This year’s new additions further that momentum.”

Located just 15 minutes west of Annapolis, MD and a short drive from Baltimore and Washington, DC, Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor is Maryland’s best theme and water park and premier destination for family fun. This giant park features world-class roller coasters, children’s areas, thrilling daily stage shows, and other attractions that make Six Flags America a true family destination with something for everyone!

Six Flags America theme park opens Saturday, April 16, 2011. Hurricane Harbor opens Saturday, May 21, 2011. To learn more about the park, visit sixflags.com/America.

Sounds like a cool addition to the water park, and I like what SF is doing lately with the Hurricane Harbors (SFGAm, and now SFA), updating them with newer attractions to draw people in.

EDIT: Never mind, as these just seem to be older SBNO slides.
