Six Flags has announced the launch of an innovative guest reservation system, in order to ensure social distancing at its theme parks during the outbreak of COVID-19.
The user-friendly system will allow Six Flags to manage daily attendance levels and avoid overcrowding, in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control.
“The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our highest priority and in the current environment, we certainly want to take extra precautions to create a safe experience for everyone,” said Six Flags president and CEO Mike Spanos.
“We are excited about reopening our parks and getting back to the business of fun; however, we want to do so in the safest possible manner.
Managing daily attendance levels at Six Flags
“By having guests pre-register before they visit, we can plan ahead with proper staffing and sanitisation measures, including ensuring that guests and team members maintain safe social distancing throughout the day.”
Guests with single-day tickets, group tickets, memberships or season passes will be required to make a reservation for a specific date at sixflags.com/reserve.
The process will take approximately five to seven minutes, with guests starting by entering their online order number, ticket number or membership or season pass number.
Next, guests will need to select the date and time they plan to visit, before watching a brief video that explains the new social distancing and sanitisation procedures.
Six Flags to reopen ‘in the safest possible manner’
They will be required to acknowledge their understanding of the company’s health policy, and also order pre-paid parking if they do not already have a pass.
If all reservations for a certain date are taken, guests can join a waitlist and will be contacted automatically by Six Flags.
Guests will also be contacted electronically the day before their scheduled visit to confirm and remind them of Six Flags’ health policy.
Guests can cancel their reservation without penalty at any time before 8am on the day of their scheduled visit.
All visitors must have reservations for Six Flags
Diamond and Diamond Elite Members will automatically be added to the priority waitlist. Members and season pass holders will receive booking priority over single-day ticket buyers.
The new guest reservation process will be activated to accept reservations when reopening dates are confirmed for Six Flags.
Guests without advance reservations will not be allowed to enter any Six Flags attractions.
Disney Springs is also set to begin a phased reopening on May 20 at Walt Disney World. The resort will remain closed, including theme parks and hotels.
