Does the park ever close because of weather?

Yes, sometimes we have to close because of weather. Guest safety is our number one priority and there are certain weather circumstances that may cause the entire park to close earlier than scheduled or not open at all. As soon as closures are confirmed the website operating calendar will be updated with the park’s current operating status. Please check the website prior to visiting on days when weather may be a concern.

Are recreational wheels (rollerskates, skateboards, etc.) allowed?

We know they are fun, but for safety reasons, no recreation wheels, including rollerblades, Heelys and other tennis shoe style roller skates are permitted at Six Flags America.

Where should I leave my pets?

We know you love your pets and we love animals, too––but they are not allowed in the park (with the exception of service animals used by the hearing and visually impaired). Six Flags America does not provide kennel services. For the health and safety of your pet, do not leave it in your car for any length of time while visiting the park. Six Flags America will call Animal Services to rescue your pet at your expense if necessary.

Hourly lockers are available at, The Wild One, Apocalypse, SUPERMAN: Ride of Steel and THE JOKER’s Jinx. The lockers are available on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved in advance. There is a nominal charge for locker usage. The lockers in Hurricane Harbor close when the water park closes, typically an hour before the theme park closes for the day. All items must be removed at this time. All lockers are cleared out each night at park close. Any articles found in lockers are turned into Lost and Found. Six Flags is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Can I rent a stroller or wheelchair?

Absolutely! If you require the use of a stroller or wheelchair, we can help!

To rent yours, stop over at the Main Street Service Center, across from the Main Street fountain.

Does Six Flags America have a dress code?

We want you to dress casually and comfortably, but in keeping with our family-friendly atmosphere, and for health and safety reasons, Six Flags America strictly enforces a dress code. Proper attire must be worn in the park at all times, including shirts and appropriate footwear. Clothing with rude, vulgar or offensive language or graphics is not permitted at any time (shirts cannot be turned inside out as a solution).

Children two-years-old and younger receive free admission to Six Flags America. A guest does not need a season pass until they turn three years old.
