Six Flags California Parks Reopen With COVID-19 Safety Measures
Visitors can once again ride the Full Throttle roller coaster at the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in Valencia, California. With masks of course.
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation announced on March 18 that both of its California parks would reopen to members and season pass holders on April 1 and 2 and the general public on April 3.
Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will operate at reduced capacity, use a reservation system and follow all state guidelines for themes parks.
“The safety plan, developed in consultation with infectious disease experts and utilized throughout the Six Flags network of parks, sets standards for executing at the highest levels of hygiene and social distancing protocols. The parks will adjust these procedures as needed to ensure continued compliance with state recommendations,” according to Six Flags’ press release.
Some of the safety measures put in place include distance markers, regular sanitization of handrails, rides and restraints, physical distancing between riders and health screenings for employees and guests.
“Six Flags Magic Mountain is the undisputed Thrill Capital of the World, and we are excited to get our park open so that we can get our world-class collection of coasters running again,” said Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Park President Don McCoy. “Our team is eager to return to work and entertain our guests in a safe environment, providing the much-needed fun and escape we have all missed this past year.”
