Six Flags Entertainment has announced that Six Flags New England, Hurricane Harbor Los Angeles, and Hurricane Harbor Concord will open to the public this month.
“With today’s announcement, 26 of our 27 parks will be welcoming guests this season,” said Senior Vice President of Park Operations, Bonnie Weber. “The safety of our guests and team members continues to be our highest priority, and we look forward to announcing an opening date for our theme park in Canada in the near future.”
Six Flags New England in Agawam, Mass. will open for its 21st season to Members and Season Pass holders on May 14, 2021, and to the general public on May 15. Six Flags New England’s new Dinosaurs: A Walk Thru Experience will be available through May 23, with paid park admission.
“This is a great day for our team,” said Six Flags New England Park President Pete Carmichael. “They are ready to get back to work and do what they love, and we are thrilled to reopen our park with all of the great roller coasters, rides, and attractions that Six Flags New England is famous for.”
The company’s two California waterparks — Hurricane Harbor Los Angeles (located next to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif.) and Hurricane Harbor Concord in Northern California — will open to the public on May 15, and May 22, respectively.
All three parks will operate at reduced attendance levels utilizing a reservation system according to state reopening guidelines for theme parks and waterparks. The parks will also implement the same extensive safety measures already in use at other Six Flags parks.
