After closing multiple parks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Six Flags will be opening all of its 26 amusement parks for the 2021 season.
The amusement park chain announced Friday it is taking multiple steps to ensure the safety of visitors as the pandemic continues so that everyone can enjoy the thrills of roller coasters once again.
Our guests and team members are ready for the return of fun and signature Six Flags thrills in 2021.
The decision comes as the company celebrates its 60th anniversary, but they stated they are keeping safety at the forefront.

The company actually kept the majority of its parks open throughout 2020 with multiple safety precautions in place using CDC health guidelines, including mandatory mask-wearing, social distancing, temperature checks, enhanced cleaning and reduced capacity.
Now as they attempt to safely reopen all parks, Six Flags has developed a new plan that "meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines for sanitization, hygiene, and social distancing protocols."
Six Flags says they are working to set reopening dates for parks in California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mexico City and Canada will finally get to reopen after being closed through 2020.
Reopening dates are subject to change based on local, state, and federal guidelines related to COVID-19.
Six Flags says all 2020 season passes have been extended all the way until December 31, 2021.
