“We are thrilled to add Six Flags Great America to the growing list of Six Flags parks that are either already open or have a firm reopening date, including Hurricane Harbor Rockford,” said Bonnie Weber, senior vice president of park operations. “Last year, we safely entertained nearly seven million guests in adherence to government and CDC health guidelines, and we continue to set the standard for safe operations at each of our parks.”

Twenty-three of the company’s 27 parks are now open or have approval to open for the 2021 season.

Additional health and safety protocols in place also include mask requirements, temperature screenings, physical distancing markers, increased sanitation and more. To learn more about safety measures in place at Six Flags Great Adventure, click here.
