Frontier City reopened Friday. It’s the first Six Flags park to do so during the pandemic.

Guests must make reservations before attending.

Masks are required and available for purchase before entering.

“We’ve taken all these measures to ensure that we can do that safely for our employees and our guests,” said Christin King with Frontier City.

Guests walk through a tunnel upon entrance, with special equipment to measure temperatures in bulk.

“Even with a group, it will take your temperature, but it gives you the average. If someone has an above average temperature, they’re going to pull you aside and give you a health screening,” King said.

A second set of scanners looks through bags, so guards don’t have to touch each one individually.

Once in the park, signs remind riders to keep their distance.

On the rides themselves, every other car is empty.

“When you get on the ride, you’ll be every other row, every other time, and we social distance. But, you can still ride with someone from your party. You just won’t be riding with any strangers,” King said.

Hand sanitizer and washing stations are around every turn.

Visitors can still order food, but are encouraged to use the Six Flags app to order ahead of time.

Water park, Hurricane Harbor, is set to reopen by reservation only on June 19.

“These are safety measures. Safety is one of our highest priorities. But fun is our second priority, and everyone is having a great time,” King said.
