The system is not live yet, as Six Flags has not yet announced a reopening date for any of its parks. But when the system does come online, Six Flags' membership and seasonal pass holders will have first dibs at reserving dates and times to visit. Six Flags announced earlier this month that it would require advance reservations when its parks reopened in order to limit capacity and promote social distancing as businesses worldwide look to slow the spread of Covid-19. Today's reveal provides more information as to how visitors will be able to make those reservations.
The system will be not just for specific dates, but also for specific times on those dates, so that Six Flags can limit the number of guests at the front gate. Visitors may stay for as long as they want once they enter the park, but if they arrive early, they will be asked to wait in their cars before coming to the entry gate.
Guests also will have to pre-pay for their parking online before visiting, as Six Flags looks to eliminate another point of physical contact as people return.
Guests will have to enter their ticket, pass, or membership number when making a reservation, then watch a video detailing Six Flags' new social distancing and sanitation procedures. They will then have to acknowledge that they understand the park's new health and safety rules in order to complete their reservation.
Six Flags also will use to reservation process to sell the required pre-paid parking passes as well as face masks, though today's announcements does not say whether masks will be required to enter the park. Six Flags said that it will announce the details of its "wide-ranging safety measures" at a later date.
Guests may cancel their reservations up until 8am on the date of their schedule visit. But if they no-show, Six Flags may subject them to reduced system priority and blockout periods. Members and season pass holders will get top priority to make reservations, based on membership level, with daily ticket holders getting the lowest priority in the system. Six Flags said that all dates for 2020 will be available when the system goes online, but that additional inventory for those dates will be made available over the course of the season.
The online system will allow each pass or ticket number to make one reservation, though membership and pass holders may be additional reservations through Guest Services at the park. Details on that are to come. Guests are advised to make a reservation for their entire party, rather than doing so individually, to ensure that everyone can get in.
If guests cannot get into the date and time that they want, they can join a wait list for that reservation slot. Guests can join multiple wait lists via the website, but as soon as they get a reservation, all their other wait list positions will be canceled.
At this point, though, Six Flags' parks remain closed until further notice.Tweet
