Six Flags has announced new safety measures as they reopen their first park.

Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, will reopen with limited capacity beginning June 5, 2020.

All guests over the age of two and all team members will be required to wear face masks covering the nose and mouth throughout their visit/work day.

All parks will also employ a sophisticated online reservation system to manage attendance, schedule guests for entry by day, and stagger arrival times to minimize proximity exposure. Other new technologies include:

  • State-of-the-art thermal imaging for temperature checks;
  • Advanced security screening technology for touchless bag checks; and
  • Expanded mobile food ordering.

"The park reopening plan, which the company developed with its epidemiologist consultants, meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines," the company said.

All guests over the age of two and all team members will be required to wear face masks covering the nose and mouth throughout their visit/work day.

Accommodations may be made on a case-by-case basis for persons with disabilities, health concerns, religious restrictions, or other circumstances that in Six Flags’ discretion warrant a modification of this face mask requirement.

Any guest without a mask will be able to purchase one at the front gate, according to the company.

Easy to identify distance markers will also be added in all park entry, ride, restroom, retail locations, and dining queue lines.

Dining areas will be adjusted to allow ample space between seated parties, and guests will be separated by empty rows and/or seats on all roller coasters, rides, and attractions.

Six Flags parks will have a modified menu and implementation of mobile food ordering will help facilitate touchless transactions. Self-service buffets and salad bars will be reconfigured to eliminate guest contact with food.
