8 Steps for a Carefree Visit
How do you prepare for your day at Six Flags? When you plan your rides, meals, attire, and schedule ahead of time, you’ll spend your visit at ease so you can have more time playing. Follow these tips to have a carefree day at the park.
1. Take a photo of your parking space.
After a long day of thrills, you don’t want to wander around the parking lot trying to find your vehicle. Take a photo of your spot and surrounding area, including light posts and signs, when you arrive so you’ll know what to look for when you’re ready to leave.
2. Pack light.
You probably don’t want to carry around a heavy backpack all day, and most large bags can’t be taken on rides with you. Keep your belongings to a minimum and only bring the necessities for the day. If you do end up bringing more than you can carry, all-day locker rentals are available for your convenience to store your items for a small fee.
3. Dress comfortably.
Review the park dress code and the weather before you come and dress accordingly. You’ll want to wear comfortable clothes and shoes so you can move around easily all day. Additionally, don’t forget your sun protection! The hot summer sun can wear you out, so be sure to bring sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and drink plenty of water so you can stay protected.
4. Plan a meeting spot.
Whether you’re traveling with one buddy or a large group, it’s important to decide on an easy-to-find location to meet up if you get separated. You’ll save yourself the panic if you just head to that spot and wait for the others to find you. You can also designate specific times during the day for your group to meet up and check in so you can ensure everyone is enjoying themselves.
5. Save time during meals.
Plan your meals so you can eat in a timely manner and move on to the next big thrill. Plan to eat lunch and dinner at non-traditional hours so you can beat the mealtime rush. You can also buy and print your meal vouchers online in advance, so you can decide what to order and not have to worry about payment at the park. Click here to learn more about meal vouchers.
6. Pick up a park map and show guide to plan your day.
It’s ideal to have a game plan for the day. Use the park map to figure out where all your favorite attractions are, and then make your plan. Conquer all your favorite rides first so you can do them again if you have time. Don't forget to grab a show guide so you don’t miss any of the fun entertainment.
7. Head to the water park early.
If you want to soak up the sun at Hurricane Harbor, make sure you arrive at the water park early to claim your seat. We have a limited number of shaded cabanas, relaxing lounge chairs, life jackets, and tubes available on a first-come, first-serve basis for you to enjoy.
8. Stop by the character stages.
Our character stages will tell you exactly which times the Looney Tunes characters will be appearing. Stop by their locations at select times to meet and greet your favorite characters. You can also stay after the Looney Tunes We Got the Beat or Kid's Club Dance Party shows for exclusive photo opportunities with the entire gang.
