Six Flags Over Georgia and Wild Adventures Announce Reopening Dates

Today both Six Flags Over Georgia and Wild Adventures, both located in Georgia, announced their plans to reopen to visitors.

Six Flags Over Georgia will welcome back guests starting June 15th, though the first 7 operating days will be only for season pass holders and members.  Starting June 22nd, regular day ticket visitors will be allowed.  The park's small water park, Hurricane Harbor, will open on June 22nd.

Reservations are required for a visit to Six Flags Over Georgia, and they are already available on Six Flags' website for pass holders and members. 

The park has stated on their website that the all-new Gotham City themed area, featuring two new flat rides, will open on June 29th.  Sadly, the park's update also reveals that Mindbender, a classic Schwarzkopf looper that was receiving a heavy refurbishment this past off-season, won't be ready until the 2021 season.

Also in Georgia, Six Flags White Water announced it will reopen on June 29th to pass holders and members, and July 3rd for all ticket types.

Wild Adventures theme park has also announced that it will greet visitors once again starting June 22nd.  The park is a part of the Herschend family, so its announcement is very similar to those of both Dollywood and Silver Dollar City.

The park will require reservations for both season pass holders and day visitors in order to manage attendance, keeping less people in the park at any given time.  They will also require face masks for employees and guests aged 3 and up, and there will be temperature screenings at the entrance.

Interestingly, the park lists several attractions that will be closed due to social distancing efforts - and on that list is Cheetah.  That's the park's wooden roller coaster, similar to rides that we've been seeing open up across the country with just limited riders allowed.  Both Silver Dollar City and Dollywood appear to be opening all their coasters, so this closure is a bit odd to me.
