Six Flags for Summer Fun

300707_10150310024799057_7650508_nWe are lucky to have Six Flags America amusement park in our cluster area. Since lots of au pairs have expressed interest in going there, I wanted to share some tips on how to get the best deal on admission.

Prices and offers are subject to change. This info is correct as of 4/23/13. Check website for specifics.


Six Flags has Season Passes for $49.99+tax per person, if you buy them in packs of 4. If you can get together with some friends to take advantage of this deal. If you buy less than 4 season passes, they are $59.99+tax per person.

Single-day Admission to Six Flags is $39.99-59.99, depending on whether you buy them online or at the gate. So, it is a much better deal to get the season pass.

If you decide not to get a season pass, you should buy your Single-day Online Ticket in advance to $15-20 off the price you would pay at the gate.

Season pass and other tickets may be purchased here on the Six Flags website.

Other costs to consider

Parking – Single Day ($20) or Season Pass ($50)

Food & Drinks – Meals are approx $15

You are not allowed to bring outside food and drinks inside. To save money you can pack a lunch and keep it in the car.  There is a picnic area in the parking lot where you can go out and eat lunch and then re-enter the park. Make sure to get your hand stamped on the way out in order to be able to re-enter the park that day.

Discount Tickets for Other Amusement Parks
MNCPPC offers discount admission tickets to Six Flags, Kings Dominion, Hershey Park and several other amusement parks in neighboring states. Those are available at community centers in Prince George’s County. Check the PG Parks website for details.

Beautiful Day at the Pumpkin Patch

On Sunday, we had beautiful weather and a great turnout for our Annual Host Family & Au Pair Pumpkin Patch Visit.  Queen Anne Farm remains an authentic pumpkin patch where kids get the chance to pick their pumpkin right off the vine. There were also animals, a corn maze and a hayride.

Beautiful Day at the Pumpkin Patch!

I want to thank all the au pairs and host families who joined me for our Annual Pumpkin Patch Cluster Meeting at Queen Anne Farm.  We had beautiful weather and lots of pumpkins to choose from.

Update: The group photo was published in the Bowie Blade Newspaper on 10/21/2010.  Pick up your copy at the Bowie Library, Community Center or a newspaper box.

Annual Host Family & Au Pair Pumpkin Patch Trip

We had great weather for our Annual Host Family & Au Pair Pumpkin Patch Trip.  It was a beautiful fall day and no rain!  About a dozen host families and their au pairs turned out.  I had a hard time getting all of the au pairs in the same place at the same time for a complete group photo.  Here is a nice photo, with most of the au pairs who came.
