Six Flags announces all guests, team members must wear masks upon parks reopening
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (CBS 58) -- Six Flags announced new safety measures Tuesday that will protect guests and workers from COVID-19 as parks prepare to reopen.
According to the company, as parks begin to reopen, every guest will be required to make a reservation for a specific date to visit at sixflags.com/reserve. Each park will limit the number of people allowed inside.
They say new thermal imaging will be used to take the temperature of guests and team members.
All employees and guests must wear masks while in the park -- the only exception being children ages two and under and those with breathing problems.
New high-tech security screenings will provide touchless bag checks and allow for quicker entry into the park.
Six Flags says social distancing will be strictly enforced, with clear markers showing where to stand in lines for rides, for park entrance, restrooms, dining and where to sit on rides and attractions.
They say a virtual queue system will soon be launched for ride lines and they will expand the use of mobile food ordering.
Team members will also increase regular cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing of high touch points.
