AGAWAM, Mass. (NEWS10/WWLP) — Six Flags New England, in accordance with Massachusetts guidelines, will open on Friday, May 14 to Members and Season Pass holders and then to the general public on May 15.

The decision comes after Governor Baker announced Tuesday that the state will move into phase 4, step 2 starting May 10, and have placed plans for further reopening on May 29 and August 1. The Administration will also relax the face coverings order for some outdoor settings, effective April 30. 

“We are beyond thrilled that we can reopen our theme park with a full complement of our more than 100 rides, attractions, and unique experiences,” said Six Flags New England Park President Pete Carmichael.  “Now more than ever, families need an escape that is safe, accessible, and fun. The thrill is calling and our team is eager to welcome back our Members, Season Pass holders, and guests once again.”

All guests will need to reserve their visit on the Six Flags New England website to manage attendance and stagger arrival times. This includes all Members, Season Pass holders and day-ticket holders.

Other safety procedures include:

  • Thermal imaging for temperature checks
  • Advanced security-screening technology for touchless bag checks

The park’s comprehensive safety plan, which the company developed in consultation with epidemiologists, meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines for sanitization, hygiene and social distancing protocols.
