Six Flags has what you need, whether you are looking for a special reward opportunity or a unique learning venue. Here are six reasons why a trip to Six Flags is perfect for your class:
Add a whole new meaning to "the thrill of learning" by connecting your curriculum to Six Flags. Amplify key themes and concepts from your classroom in a safe, stimulating environment. Open-ended discussions about physics, math, and fun promote critical and creative thinking among all ages and invite opportunities for students to consider multiple perspectives.
Teachers regularly use Six Flags to help teach their students:
- Physics (magnetism, gravity, friction, potential energy, etc)
Whether you're interested in one of our special subject-focused learning events or as a separate group on the day of your choice, Six Flags has packages and programs to meet your needs.
Please see the Educational Events listed at the bottom of the page for Event details, including special pricing and ordering instructions.
Don't experience the park on an empty stomach!
Six Flags catered outings offer a complete day of food and fun for groups of 100 or more without breaking the bank. Take the guesswork out of food planning and let our trained, expert staff take the lead. Choose from signature picnic staples like burgers and hot dogs or enjoy chicken, pasta, desserts and more.
Every package includes park admission and an all-you-can-eat buffet so absolutely no-one leaves hungry. Plus, the entire picnic experience takes place in your own private pavilion where you and your crew will truly be treated like VIPs. You can even customize your day with fun add-ons like souvenir photos, games, DJs, face painters and more.
Our Picnic Grove can accommodate groups of 100 to 20,000 so it's the perfect venue for both the smallest and largest group outings. Large groups can even plan the ultimate getaway with an exclusive event that includes private access to the entire park for a truly unique and unforgettable experience – all for often less than the regular admission price. Leave the planning to us and focus on spending a fun-filled day with your group. We promise you take all the credit.
