    If you like mouth-watering treats served with hair-raising thrills, the Taste Prince George's Food & Wine Festival at Six Flags America might be for you.

    The culinary event is Saturday, Aug. 23 and is included with admission to the theme park on that day, with entry significantly discounted.

    The festival celebrates some of the best food and drink in Prince George's County, with easy access to the biggest amusement park in Maryland. Participating restaurants include Olde Towne Inn, Kitchen Cray and Everlasting Life vegetarian restaurant.

    Food from the vendors must be purchased using Taste Tickets, which are $1 each and are sold in books of 10.The event organizers said that food samples will "cost" between one and five tickets, while beer and wine will require about six tickets.

    But sampling snacks and sipping wine are just some of the things you can enjoy at the fest. You'll also find kids' activities, live cooking demos with acclaimed chefs, competitions and live music, as well as full access to Six Flags America.

    That said, you might not want to eat a full meal before tackling thrill rides like Apocalypse, Ragin' Cajun and Superman: Ride of Steel.

    Admission tickets are available for $27, saving at least $13 on general theme park admission. Tickets include entry to the park, parking and entry to the food and wine festival, but they must be purchased online before midnight Aug. 22.

    You can purchase tickets from the Taste Prince Georges' Eventbrite site.
