Six Flags Over Texas And Other Amusement Parks Close Amid Coronavirus Concerns
If spring breakers had plans on heading to their favorite amusement parks to ride the awesome thrill rides, those plans are now put on hold.
Six Flags Theme Parks announced Friday that Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington and Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio would cease operation for the remainder of the month. We received the following press release from Sharon Parker, Media Coordinator at Six Flags Over Texas, on the parks temporary closure:
Six Flags Over Texas Announces Temporary Closure
The Parks Remain Committed to the Health and Safety of Park Guests and Team Members
Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Fiesta Texas in Texas have temporarily suspended operations until the end of March, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation. While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at either property, the safety of our guests and team members is always our highest priority. We will continue to closely monitor these evolving conditions, and will follow the most current guidance from federal, state, and local officials.
Of the Six Flags Theme Parks that are already open for their 2020 operating season, all parks nationwide have been temporarily closed.
Six Flags is not the only theme park company in Texas to have temporarily closed. MySA.com is reporting that Schlitterbahn Resorts and SeaWorld San Antonio have also temporarily closed as well as the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine.
