Spring Break Anti-Bullying Event April 2: Stop Bullying In Its Tracks!
Six Flags America is launching a new campaign called Keeping Kids On Track, focusing on a variety of programs to address the emotional and physical needs of children in the community. Stop Bullying In Its Tracks!, the first piece of the campaign, kicks off on Opening Day, April 2 and runs the entirety of Spring Break, April 2 – 12.
“Bullying is a social issue with no regard for economics, race or gender,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “We want to raise awareness in our community through this initiative and help our community stop bullying in its tracks. When guests visit during Spring Break they will enjoy all our great rides, watch live shows and hear important messages about how they can make a difference in the lives of others.”
The park partnered with Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County Public Schools to create messaging to empower students and park guests to stop bullying and provide resources to help those who are being bullied. On Opening Day, Thursday, April 2 at 2 p.m. the park will host students from both school districts who have been invited to take a pledge to Stop Bullying In Its Tracks!
Guests who visit the park during Spring Break will have the opportunity to:
- receive valuable information on how to prevent bullying and where to go for help if they are being bullied;
- make their own personalized pledge against bullying on the “Bullying Stops With Me!” wall on Main Street;
- hear anti-bullying messaging in park shows and live entertainment;
- hear in-park PSA’s with anti-bullying information.
Six Flags America is celebrating kids with Everyone Pays Kids Price; guests can pay the kids’ price of only $39.99. For Spring Break only, April 2 -12, those who take advantage of the kid’s pricing can also enjoy a free ticket for guests 48” or less.
The park will be open April 2 through April 12 for Spring Break and then weekends through May 23. The park will be open daily beginning Memorial Day weekend.
