We’re all looking to get back to some sense of normalcy and for summer, that means going to the Great Escape. It will open soon, but with some new rules and regulations.
Six Flags will reopen their first park in Oklahoma City on June 5th, according to NPR. We can assume that the rules and regulations put into place at this location are what we can expect when the Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor open again.
First, we’ve already seen a section on the Great Escape website where you can reserve your time at the park. It looks like you buy a ticket or pass, you take that number, and reserve your spot through their site. It says, “Welcome to the Six Flags reservation system! To meet social distancing guidelines and ensure the health and safety of our guests, all visits to the park must be pre-scheduled using this system. Under most circumstances, it will just take a few minutes.”
We can expect that Great Escape will follow the path of the Oklahoma City location. There, they have announced that they will use thermal imaging to screen temperatures of guests and employees before they can enter. Once inside the park, all guests are required to bring masks to wear or must buy one at the gate. “Special accommodations can be made for people with ‘disabilities, health concerns, religious restrictions, or other circumstances’ that would prevent them from wearing masks, Six Flags said.”
Capacity will be restricted to maintain social distancing but no word on exactly how much. The number depends on the size of each Six Flags location.
The Great Escape was supposed to open on May 16-17 but obviously had to hold off because of NYPause and therefore have yet to open their brand new ride for 2020, Adirondack Outlaw.
