Six Flags has announced that all guests will be required to make advance reservations in order to visit their parks once they reopen.

UPDATE – 05/13/20: Six Flags has shared new details about this guest reservation system, which you can learn more about here.

In order to meet state social distancing guidelines and keep guests safe, all visits will have to be pre-scheduled using an online reservation system. This not only applies to regular day guests, but also to members and season passholders.

There isn’t an announced opening date for the Six Flags parks across the U.S., but all of the parks’ Operating Schedule pages display the following message:

Following local and regional COVID-19 health directives, we will open as soon as it is safe to do so.

The online reservation system is not available just yet, so be sure to stay tuned for updates. In the meantime, to learn more about Six Flags parks or to find your local park, visit SixFlags.com.

I believe that is s good idea for reservations. I fo home nursing for a living and you can’t be to careful.

I understand that this is a good idea but what are they going to do for season pass and members who can not use the passes right now sre they going to extend the use of the passes into 2021 ? Or offer refunds

Rachel May 6, 2020 - 2:17 pm

6 flags sent an email to season pass holders a few weeks ago staying they would get a day free in 2021 for every day they did not open on time in 2020

That doesn’t sound fair. I for one buy a season pass every year so what good are the “free” days in 2021 going to do me if I buy a pas for 2021?

Tom Sauvlet May 6, 2020 - 6:28 pm

They do not like to issue refunds…they are selfish…I am worried about my season passes foe 13 different family members going to waste…been season pass holder for 9 years.

Brian May 6, 2020 - 7:39 am

Guess I won’t be visiting Six Flags again. Not with all these restrictions in place and ridiculous prices Sox Flags charges.
In the state the economy is in its a disgrace that Six Flags will charge the over priced tickets for entertainment… Especially your fast pass.
Not a fan of Sox Flags anymore….long wait times for rides – rude staff members- overpriced ticket prices and food.

Six flags is by far the most Inexpensive amusement park! I go 9 months a year both parks food and drinks and parking for my whole family and bring many friends free for $500 a year . Disney is $500 a day! Whose kidding who!

Susan Hayden May 6, 2020 - 9:04 am

Will refunds be available for season passes if we are uncomfortable with being in groups so soon?

Holly May 6, 2020 - 9:16 am

How the heck would one wear a mask at a Waterpark? I hope they give season pass holders the option to not use their passes until 2021.

David Checlosky May 6, 2020 - 10:12 am

I made my reservations when I bought my season pass .that meant that I was going every day

Becky E May 6, 2020 - 10:13 am

Yeh, we spent close to $1,000 for a family of 5, including meal deal passes. Who do I talk to about a refund for the year? Well just do next year instead.

Carol W May 6, 2020 - 1:26 pm

I did too! I bought 9 season passes with
meals drinks and snack. $1400. I am in Missouri for the summer. I go back home in September to Arizona, there isnt one there. Just a tiny little water park they bought a couple of years ago, a wet willy’s. I cant even use my ticket..smh!

Laurie May 6, 2020 - 11:20 am

I have really enjoyed going to magic mountain and hurricane harbor. I’m not afraid of being close to other people, I just want to get on with life! I want to take my granddaughter to six flags. Let’s do this!

DONNA JANCZYK May 6, 2020 - 11:36 am

I totally agree 😊

Jamie May 6, 2020 - 11:45 am

Diane Rugato May 6, 2020 - 11:52 am

I’m all in for refunds or just putting into next yr,, plus my meal pass !!

Dave May 6, 2020 - 12:44 pm

Season Pass holders either need the option for refund or to have issued for next year instead without having to make “reservations”. That’s the point of a pass, to wake up and say let’s go today … not making a reservation. Better do the right thing 6 flags.

Yeah sure the fact that alot of doctors are being censored for speaking the truth about the cervesa bug and that is less dealyier than the seasonal flu and still have to follow guidelines from CDC disinformation, we should question it and our freedoms which are being stripped out for supposed safety, Or the new normal which it’s bogus and conditioning us not to be social, I go out to check it out but it’s been a big lie from our Gov. Since the start.

Garela May 6, 2020 - 3:33 pm

Iam no longer fan of six flags since it’s following the covid disinformation center, it’s rediculous wearing masks and anti social distance when it really doesn’t do anything but distancing us to live our lives. I’ll just wait if going back to normal not the new normal in that case I’ll be not going to see ourselves as cattle, no thanks.

I,m only supporting verizon now

Kaitlin agosh May 6, 2020 - 11:52 pm

Go broke

Jill May 7, 2020 - 7:13 am

I’ve been a season pass holder for years and feel as I already paid for my tickets for the year if you are planning on opening that season pass holders should have priority access to reservations and single day tickets should be only available on the day of planned visit if the park is not at capacity similar to what indoor water parks do.
