We expect all guests to behave in a family-friendly manner. Line jumping, profanity and unruly behavior are offensive to park guests and may be cause for ejection without refund. Guests are not permitted to save places in line, bypass others in line, or exit the line and return to the same place for any reason. Guests exiting a line must go to the back of the line if they choose to return. Guests must also refrain from behaving in an unsafe manor which includes running, climbing on railings or barriers and entering restricted areas. During Fright Fest, touching or harassing scareactors/zombies is also prohibited.

In keeping with our family-friendly atmosphere, and for health and safety reasons, Six Flags strictly enforces a dress code. Proper attire must be worn at all times, including shirts and appropriate footwear. Clothing or tattoos with offensive language or graphics are not permitted at any time.
