Six Flags America in Woodmore, Maryland has been cleared after a bomb threat closed the park on Wednesday.

Bomb squads cleared the park around 3 p.m., and the park opened soon after.





Six Flags America received a threat before opening Wednesday morning.


The Prince George County Office of Emergency Management tweeted that authorities had discovered two suspicious packages in the park. Both were eventually cleared as non-explosives, and a further sweep of the park found no suspicious activity.
