Beyond MoCo: Fights and Vandalism Close Six Flags America Early on Saturday
Six Flags America at 13710 Central Ave in Upper Marlboro, the closest large scale theme park to Montgomery County, closed early Saturday night after fights broke out amongst visitors.
The incident occurred on the opening night of Six Flags annual “Fright Fest”.
Six Flags released the following statement on Sunday:
“The safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority. After observing the improper behavior of some guests, the park was closed approximately an hour early out of an abundance of caution.”
I’ve been talking to people at @SixFlagsDC last night and they say they don’t know what these vicious fights & vandalism were about. That many kids fighting were 14-15 years old. @PGPDNews says no arrests made. Latest on @fox5dc tonight. pic.twitter.com/AOoa5y2wJl
