Texas amusement parks hoping to reopen soon

TEXAS – With the summer travel season getting under way, Texas tourism leaders are working with the governor’s office to determine best practices for reopening premier theme destinations.

While Six Flags and other amusement venues remain closed, industry officials have shared with the Governor’s Strike Force to Open Texas the health and safety protocols they’re ready to follow when it’s time to welcome back visitors, said Erika Boyd, vice president of Government Relations and Communications with the Texas Travel Alliance.

“You will see we are implementing social distancing measures, and many of the theme parks have already implemented reservation systems to control the number of people coming in,” Boyd said.

The procedures align with those already in effect at museums, movie theaters, shopping malls, and other large gathering places, Boyd said.
