(Reuters) - A bomb threat shut a Six Flags Entertainment Corp theme park in Washington's Maryland suburbs on Wednesday, local media reported.

The Prince Georges County Fire Department said on its Twitter feed that one suspicious package at the park in Largo had been cleared as not explosive. A second is being checked, it said.

Washington's ABC television affiliate WJLA reported that a bomb threat was received before the park opened. A Six Flags spokesman could not be reached for comment.
