San Antonio's Six Flags Fiesta is among the amusement parks reopening under the governor's order.

The final part of Gov. Greg Abbott's Phase 3 to reopen Texas goes into effect Friday. It permits amusement parks to open up to 50% capacity.


San Antonio's Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Arlington's Six Flags Over Texas are set to reopen June 19 for exclusive members and June 22 for the general public.

Park goers must make reservations ahead of time and can expect the following increased safety measures and hygiene protocols:

  • Park goers and staff must wear face masks
  • Attendees must be healthy for 14 days prior to their visit
  • Guests and team members will undergo temperature screenings
  • Parks will control maximum daily capacity
  • Six feet of separation will be required between parties in lines for park entries, rides, restrooms and dining areas
  • Rides and attractions will have empty rows and empty seats to promote distancing between parties

In Arlington, Hurricane Harbor Splashtown opened June 18 for members and passholders and June 22 for the public. Meanwhile, Hurricane Harbor Splashtown in Houston will open June 29 for members and July 3 for everyone.

Some season pass holders and park goers expressed disappointment and outrage over mask and distancing requirements.
