Coaster Capital of New England

Park Policies

Because Six Flags is a family park, we expect guests to behave appropriately. Violating our park policies may be cause for ejection from the park without refund. For more information, please review the park policies below.

Pets are not permitted in the park. Trained service animals are welcome at our Six Flags Theme Parks. Service animals are defined as dogs and small ponies that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.

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.

In keeping with our family-friendly environment and for safety reasons, Six Flags enforces a dress code. Proper attire must be worn in the Park at all times, including shirts and appropriate footwear.

Tattoos or clothing with offensive language or graphics are not permitted at any time.  Examples of clothing not permitting are those which display:

  • Profanity
  • Pornography
  • Graphic Violence
  • Support of drugs or drug use
  • Gang symbols
  • Promoting discrimination against any group

An image of an assault rifle or handgun does not, by itself, rise to the level of graphic violence.

Bathing suits may be worn only in water park areas.  Park admission may be denied if clothing or tattoos are deemed to be inappropriate by management and the Guest refuses all reasonable options.  Shirts cannot be turned inside out as a solution.

Please walk at all times. Do not sit or stand on fences or railings.

Guests using profanity or abusive language, symbols or gestures may be ejected from the park without refund.

Line jumping is strictly prohibited. Guests are not permitted to save places in line or exit the line and return for any reason. Violators will be ejected without a refund.

Loose articles are not permitted on most rides. Cell phones, keys, or other small items must be secured in cargo pockets, zippered pockets, or waist packs. All loose articles which cannot be secured must be left in a locker or with a non-rider prior to entering to queue line. Six Flags and its employees are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Items lost on rides will not be retrieved during park operating hours and often times may not be located. Loose articles of any kind (including but not limited to purses, backpacks, and beverage containers) may not be taken past the queue entrance and cannot be left on the load/unload platform of the following rides: BIZARRO; BATMAN: The Dark Knight; Mind Eraser. Guests observed on a ride with electronic devices will be immediately ejected from the park, and served with a five year trespass.

In addition to the Six Flags Guest Code of Conduct, guests are required to comply with all local, state and federal laws, as well as individual park policies, rules and instructions posted or otherwise listed.

The following items are not permitted at any time:

  • Food/coolers (except special diet and infant food)
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Lawn/folding chairs
  • Magic markers, spray paint
  • Aerosol cans
  • Glass bottles
  • Knives
  • Spiked clothing/jewelry
  • Fireworks/explosives
  • Firearms/ammunition
  • Chemical weapons, mace/pepper spray

Also note, open-flame cooking is not allowed at any time in our parking lots.


Cameras may not be permitted on thrill rides. Please check at ride entrances regarding camera policies for each ride. Six Flags New England requests that all photographs or videos taken by guests be used for their personal use and enjoyment only. Any use, reuse or reproduction for commercial purposes without the express written consent of Six Flags New England is prohibited.

To leave the park and re-enter on the same day, please get your hand stamped and re-enter at any entry gate or re-entry gate. This includes Season Pass Holders as they are only valid to scan per day. Note: Fright Fest re-entry is limited. 

Entering restricted areas, including ride and backstage areas, is strictly prohibited. Guests found entering restricted areas may be ejected from the park without refund.

Safety is our number-one priority. Guests with certain body proportions or of certain heights and/or weights may not be able to enjoy certain rides if the safety restraints will not operate as designed. Specific ride information is available at the ride and at Guest Relations.

There is an inherent risk in participating in any amusement ride. We expect riders to exercise good judgment and act in a responsible manner. Guests must also obey all oral and written warnings, and properly use all ride safety equipment provided. Guests who do not comply with ride rules may be ejected from the park without refund. Please refer to specific guidelines posted at the entrance of every ride.

All guests entering the park will go through metal detectors, so please plan accordingly. Security will confiscate any item that is prohibited by Massachusetts General Law or statute, or in violation of Federal Laws and Regulations. All items will be turned over to the Agawam Police Department for investigation.

Smoking is permitted only in the designated smoking areas. These areas are specifically marked and can be found in the following areas: Outside the main gate near the pedestrian bridge, behind the Carousel near the entrance of Whistlestop Park, next to Goliath across from Leather Treaty, near the Mind Scrambler, near the exit of Blizzard River, near the Hall of Justice, behind Candy Cabin, near the exit of Mind Eraser, across from the South End Restrooms, at Wahoo’s Tiki Bar (Hurricane Harbor), and near Cowabunga Burgers patio (Hurricane Harbor). All other areas in the parks are smoke-free and smoking is strictly prohibited. Underage smoking is not permitted. Failure to use the smoking areas will result in immediate expulsion from the park without a refund.

Some rides and shows will close temporarily during electrical storms, heavy rains, high winds and other severe weather conditions. These attractions will re-open when conditions permit safe operation. Most restaurants, theaters and shops will remain open. If the weather causes a majority of our rides to close for an extended period, we will offer a complimentary return pass. Certain rules and restrictions apply.
