Six Flags announces new safety measures ahead of reopening


(WSIL) — Six Flags has announced what additional safety measures will be put in place at its parks when they're able to reopen.

The announcement came in light of new businesses reopening in Illinois and part of the Midwest amid the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement also comes after the park announced they'll be reopening at limited capacity and require guests to make reservations.

When amusements are able to reopen, thermal imaging technology will take guests' and employees' temperatures as they enter the park, according to the company. The company will also use new security technology to allow for touch-less bag checks for quicker and safer entry.

Both guests and employees will also be required to wear a mask or face covering when at the park, too. If you don't have a mask, Six Flags will have masks available for purchase.

The park says they'll also be cleaning high traffic areas more often.

"We will increase cleaning and disinfection in high traffic zones and areas including restrooms; dining areas; ride seats and restraints; and queue line railings," Communications Manager for Six Flags Sharon Parker said in a video on Twitter.
