Teachers get in FREE at Six Flags America

Are you a teacher that hasn’t really been able to do anything fun because of budget cuts? Six Flags America is looking out for you this summer as they give teachers and education staff in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia free admission during the month of August and part of September.

Six Flags America so far is the only park in the chain giving free admission to teachers. However, it could be a safe bet that the other parks could start following suit real soon.

From Six Flags America:

K through 12 public, private, and charter school teachers and school personnel working in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia are eligible to receive free, one-day general admission tickets during this period. Participants must present a valid school employee identification card and a second form of photo ID at the theme park to receive the free ticket. Qualifying teachers and school personnel may bring up to four friends and family members to the park who will be eligible to purchase theme park tickets at a discounted, rate during this special promotion.

Six Flags America has supported educational initiatives for more than a decade with programs like Read to Succeed, which promotes extracurricular reading, and the popular fundraising initiative Coasters for Cause. The park also provides unique opportunities for teachers and students of every age to put their classroom education into practical application on Six Flags America’s signature rides and attractions through distinctive in-park programs, including the popular Physics Day, Math & Science Day, Performing Arts workshops, and Music Education Days. Each educational day curriculum is developed by leading partners in the respective fields, including the American Association of Physics Teachers, the American Physical Society, and the Prince George’s County Department of Music Education. Six Flags America plans to announce dates and program elements for each of the 2011-2012 education days at the Maryland State Education Association Convention in October.

Before the summer turns to fall, teachers can beat the heat on thrilling rides and water slides at Six Flags America. Teachers spending the day at Six Flags America can enjoy a full menu of awe-inspiring rides, games, shows, and attractions, including the NEW ZoomAzon Falls water slides, located in Hurricane Harbor, as well as seven world-class roller coasters such as SUPERMAN: Ride of Steel and Mind Eraser, and exciting shows like SURVIVOR Live, based on the hit reality television series. Six Flags America is conveniently located to the Baltimore and Washington, DC area, just 15 minutes west of Annapolis, MD; 20 minutes east of DC, and 40 minutes south of Baltimore. Six Flags America and Hurricane Harbor is open daily through Sunday, August 21, 2011 and weekends in late August through Labor Day. Six Flags America theme park is also open select weekends in September and October.
