Six Flags reopened the battle.
Last Friday, the Texas-based theme park operator announced plans to reopen all 26 venues in the 2021 season, including 5 venues that will be closed in 2020 due to continued coronavirus restrictions.
The company further confirmed its intention to recruit “thousands of team members” in the upcoming season through online recruitment activities.
Bonnie Weber, senior vice president of park operations, said in a press release: “Our guests and team members are ready to return to the fun and iconic Six Flags thrills in 2021.” “Last year, we set a goal for safe operation of the park. To comply with government regulations and CDC health guidelines in 21
Weber added that the company is currently working to “fix reopening dates” for its parks in California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mexico City and Canada.
Six Flags warned that its reopening date (planned for 2021) may also be changed according to local, state or federal guidelines.
Six Flags originally closed its theme park operations in mid-March 2020, only to reopen its first location-the border city of Oklahoma-twenty other parks at the end of the year. All cleaning work, sanitation and social distancing agreements were carried out before.
Other policy changes include facial coverings and temperature checks for guests and employees; a new online reservation system for guests to use before booking a visit; all parks have limited capacity; and they are only converted to credit cards or mobile payments to minimize The connection between the visitor and the supplier.
On its website, Six Flags still warns visitors to “assess their own risks” before deciding whether to participate in the park.
“People without symptoms can spread the coronavirus if they are infected, and any interaction with the public increases the risk of exposure to the coronavirus,” the website reads. “When you come to the park, you acknowledge and agree to bear the inherent risks associated with attendance.”
However, Mike Spanos, CEO of Six Flags, said that after the reopening of border city locations in June 2020, the park is ready for the “new normal”.
Spanos said: “This’new normal’ will be very different, but we think these additional measures are appropriate in the current environment.”
