JACKSON – Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor will open in mid-May, “or as soon as possible thereafter” as the amusement park switches its schedule in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The park has “temporarily suspended operations,” Six Flags said.
“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at the property, the safety of our guests, team members, and animals is always our highest priority,” the park said in a statement. “We will continue to closely monitor this evolving situation, and follow the most current guidance from federal, state, and local officials.”
For guests with prepaid tickets, the valid dates have been extended to the end of the 2020 season. For current 2020 season pass holders, the passes will be extended for the number of operating days the park is temporarily closed.
Six Flags Great Adventure Members will receive a month for each month that the park is closed, plus a free membership level upgrade for the rest of the 2020 season and other benefits.
More information is available on Six Flags’ website.
