6 Steps to a Carefree Visit
Tips to stay calm and keep your day effortless
How do you prepare for your day at Six Flags? When you plan ahead, including your rides, meals, and attire, you’ll spend more time having fun. Follow these tips to have a carefree day at the park.
1. 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, for a small fee all-day locker rentals are available to store your items.
2. Dress comfortably.
Review the park dress code and the weather before you come so you can dress accordingly. Remember that inappropriate clothing will not be allowed into the park. You’ll also want to wear comfortable clothes and shoes so you can move around easily all day. Additionally, don’t forget your sun protection! To minimize affects of the hot summer sun, be sure to bring sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.
3. Plan a meeting spot.
Whether you’re traveling with one buddy or a large group, it’s important to point out 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.
4. 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, like earlier or later than usual, 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. Learn more about meal vouchers.
5. Pick up a park map to plan your day.
It’s ideal to have a game plan for the day so you don’t wander around aimlessly. Use the park map to figure out where all your favorite attractions are, and determine the quickest way to get to them. You may want to conquer all your favorite rides first so you can make sure you get to experience them.
6. 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.
