Six Flags America Unveils Plans for a Transformed Realm Called SteamTown

Park Undergoing Largest Capital Investment in a Decade

New Storyline, New Signature Attraction, Three Re-imagined Attractions, Exciting Entertainment, and New Food and Retail Offerings to Debut in 2024

Bowie, MD — August 30, 2023 Six Flags America is providing public notice today as it announces the “sale” of Coyote Creek and the creation of a transformed realm called SteamTown: Where the Past Meets the Future. Upon entering SteamTown, guests will be greeted by a brand-new signature attraction for the whole family, SteamWhirler. Three fan favorite attractions will be renamed, re-imagined, restored, re-themed and enhanced. New colors, features and effects will adorn the area with the vivid new charm of storytelling. The return of the award-winning Six Flags America stunt show will follow along the new steampunk theme and be home to the area’s mysterious new “investor”. Plus, all-new SteamTown food, beverage and retail options will introduce new tastes, treats and sweets.

“SteamTown is an important step in our major, multi-year investment in guest experience and park improvement,” said Six Flags America General Manager Ramar Vaughan. “We are excited for all of the new experiences and enhancements that SteamTown will provide and look forward to sharing more details ahead of the official realm opening next summer.”

What Guests Can Expect:

  • A whole new story that will weave through various aspects of the area
  • SteamWhirler – New signature family attraction with four rotating arms that are synchronized by a central gearing system, which provide guests a pop of airtime each revolution
  • Three re-imagined attractions:
    • Suspended coaster (formerly Mind Eraser) with new trains, enhanced operating system and a completely refreshed look;
    • River rapids ride (formerly Renegade Rapids) with new theming, features and surprises;
    • And, an overhaul of bumper cars (formerly Coyote Creek Crazy Cars)
  • The return of the wildly popular stunt show, with story-driven, high-flying excitement for the whole family
  • A new quick-service dining experience and reopening of large, air-conditioned eatery
  • Themed retail experience with SteamTown inspired merchandise

After many years as a bustling mining town, the gold of Coyote Creek has dried up. A new, mystery investor has come to town and has big plans for the abandoned location. Guests will be invited to follow along as the town comes back to life as the mysterious investor, and their plans, are revealed.
The Biggest Sale of the Year

The timing of the introduction of these exciting enhancement couldn’t be more perfect—it aligns seamlessly with Six Flags’ highly anticipated Biggest Sale of the Year, featuring discounts of up to 70% on season passes, tickets, and more, available now through September 5. What sets this offer apart is that not only can park visitors enjoy the new 2024 rides and attractions with their season passes, they can also receive admission throughout the remainder of 2023 including access to the highly popular Six Flags Fright Fest.
