Amusement parks are always a fun place to visit during a vacation. If you are on one of your tours in Washington DC, the Six Flags America is a great choice of theme park to consider. Six Flags America theme park is located in Maryland, just 15 miles from the east of DC. This theme park is spread across 523 acres of land, with 131 of that used for park operation. The Six Flag America has six different themed areas: Main Street 1776, Chesapeake, Looney Tunes Movie Town, Mardi Gras, Gotham City, and Coyote Creek.
Main Street 1776
This region, also known as the Library Street or Main Street, is inspired by Colonial America, at the time of the American Revolution. The buildings here have a characteristic colonial design, and you’ll find many restaurants and stores. In the street’s entrance, you can see an imitation of the Liberty Bell.
Formerly this region was split into two sections; the Olde Boston and the Skull Island. These days you can see the motifs that feature fishing nets and lifesavers. This region is home to many rides like Roar, Shipwreck falls, Apocalypse, Capital Railways, Carousel, High Seas, Pirate’s Flight, Great Race, Flying Carousel, Tea Cups, and Cyclone.
Looney Tunes Movie Town

In this zone, the rides are mainly for children and these include Sylvester’s Pounce and Bounce, Looney Tunes Prop Warehouse, Foghorn Leghorn’s Tinsel Town Train, Taz’s Film Works, etc.
