Six Flags Magic Mountain is wasting no time, allowing guests back into the theme park April 1, the first day the business is allowed to reopen.
Six Flags made the announcement Thursday morning, one day after Disneyland announced it would reopen April 30. Under the new state pandemic tier guidelines, large theme parks are allowed to reopen (at a small capacity and to in-state visitors only) once their county is in the red tier. Los Angeles and Orange County just moved into that tier.
Six Flags Magic Mountain will reopen to members and passholders on April 1-2, and then to the general public on April 3.
Universal Studios Hollywood and Knott’s Berry Farm have not yet announced reopening dates.
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will reopen April 30, and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will reopen April 29.
“We’ve seen the enthusiasm, the craving for people to return to our parks around the world,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said Wednesday. “We’ve been operating at Walt Disney World for about nine months, and there certainly is no shortage of demand.”
Disney said 10,000 furloughed employees would be recalled to work.
For the better part of a year, the major Southern California theme parks were in a bitter stalemate with Gov. Gavin Newsom, demanding a reasonable path for reopening. All the parks shuttered last March due to the pandemic.
