Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Announces June 19 Reopening Date

Extensive New Safety Measures in Place    

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — June 4, 2020 — Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the Thrill Capital of South Texas, today announced plans to reopen on June 19, 2020. In accordance with Governor Abbott’s reopening guidelines for amusement parks, the park will operate at reduced attendance levels and in preview mode June 19-21. During this preview phase, the park will only be open to Members and Season Pass Holders, with White Water Bay waterpark also available beginning June 20. The parks will then gradually increase attendance levels and open to all guests on June 22. Both locations are implementing extensive new safety measures and hygiene protocols, including several new advanced technology systems to better protect guests and employees. These procedures will be adjusted on an as-needed basis to ensure compliance with state recommendations.

“We are excited to once again open our gates and welcome guests, valued Members and loyal Season Pass Holders back to the park,” said Six Flags Fiesta Texas Park President Jeffrey Siebert. “The extensive new safety measures we are implementing allow us to return to the business of providing thrilling family memories in a safe and fun environment. We have been working diligently with state and local health officials to develop extensive sanitization, protocols, expanded social distancing measures, and new touchless technologies that will make a safer park experience for everyone.”

The park will employ an online reservation system to manage attendance, schedule guests for entry by day, and to 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
  • Mobile food ordering.

The parks’ reopening plan, which the company developed in consultation with epidemiologists, meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines for sanitization, hygiene, and social distancing protocols.

“We have developed a comprehensive reopening safety plan that includes protocols designed by theme park and waterpark industry experts, along with best practices from top destination parks from around the world, which will allow guests to experience our parks in the safest way possible. This ’new normal’ will be different in some ways, but we believe these additional measures are appropriate in the current environment,” said Six Flags President and CEO Mike Spanos.
