Six Flags America
This park is just off the Beltway east of Washington, D.C. It started in 1982 as Wild World. Water rides were the main attraction in the early years, but thrill rides began to dominate. The park went bankrupt in 1990 and remained closed until it was purchased by the Tierco Group in 1992. Its name was changed to Adventure World in 1993. Six Flags purchased it a few years later, and in 1999 it became Six Flags America.
Several roller coasters have left the park. In 1993, they acquired from Six Flags Great Adventure one of the two Arrow shuttles operating as Lightning Loops. They renamed it Python. It was put into storage at the end of the 1998 season, and ultimately was scrapped in 2005. In 1998, the Cannonball, a kiddie coaster from Molina, left the park. Ultra Twister, the Pipeline coaster from Six Flags Astroworld, was moved here in 2006. It remained in storage until 2010 when it was finally scrapped without ever being reassembled. Two Face sat dormant in 2008, and was removed in 2009.
