Top Executive Arrives from the Six Flags North America Location

Richard Pretlow has been named park president of the Bowie, Md.-based Six Flags America theme park and Hurricane Harbor waterpark.

Pretlow most recently served as director of in-park services at Six Flags Great Escape Resort, located in Lake George, N.Y.

“It is an honor to join the innovative Six Flags America & Hurricane Harbor team,” said Richard Pretlow. “We have made major investments in this park in recent years and we are well-positioned for long-term growth.

Pretlow has worked at every level of the theme park industry. A graduate of Hampton University, he began his theme park career in 2009, at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, in culinary operations, where he found his passion for the theme park industry. In 2010, he relocated to Langhorne, Pa. as culinary operations manager at Busch Gardens’ sister park, Sesame Place, before departing to become the revenue manager for the Crayola Experience, based in Easton, Pa. He joined the Six Flags team in 2018 as director of in-park services at Six Flags Great Escape Resort, prior to being promoted to this latest role. Pretlow also holds an MBA from Norwich University.

“Richard brings a fresh perspective, proven track record of success, an understanding of the market, and a collaborative leadership style that will serve him well as park president,” said Six Flags Regional Vice President of Park Operations Chris Thorpe. “I am confident he will make an immediate, positive impact as we continue our work to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic stronger than ever.”

Six Flags Entertainment Corporation is the world’s largest regional theme park company and the largest operator of waterparks in North America.
