Six Flags eliminates front-of-line for disabled visitors
Written by Robert Niles
In an effort to eliminate abuses by visitors faking injuries and disabilities to cut to the front of ride lines, Six Flags theme parks are now offering disabled visitors reservation return times instead of a free pass to the front of the queue. (Think FastPass/FlashPass/Universal Express, etc....)Tweet
The upside is that guests with disabilities still don't have to wait in a queue, which might not be wheelchair accessible. The downside, for them, is that they lose immediate access to rides. What is unclear is whether the return time will be equal to the current wait time for the ride, or for a later time during the day. Readers, what have you heard?
An article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram quotes a mother of two autistic kids about the policy:
She said they went to a ride, booked a time to return and then left.
The policy went into place earlier this month at all Six Flags theme parks.
