DALLAS – Death-defying roller coasters, exciting shows and funnel cakes all await the winner of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s latest contest.

The Exchange has partnered with Mars on the “Ms. Brown Sweepstakes,” named after the M&Ms character, which offers a grand prize of a trip for a family of four to any Six Flags theme park in the United States, three days and two nights accommodations, theme park tickets and a $400 voucher for both car rental and airfare, a $9,750 value. Additionally, ten first prize winners will receive two daily admission tickets to the Six Flags of their choice.

“From California to Texas to New York, Six Flags theme parks are all over the U.S.,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Jeffry Helm. “One lucky family will have a big decision to make as to where they want to spend what is sure to be a memorable vacation.”
