Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, located at 4243 W. Pinnacle Peak Road in Glendale, just opened back up for the 2021 summer season. Last year, the popular Valley attraction had closed down due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“We are excited to welcome guests back to Hurricane Harbor. The health and safety of our guests and team members remains our top priority and we appreciate the support of Governor Ducey as we’ve worked to create a fun and safe environment for everyone,” says Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Phoenix General Manager Donald Spiller.
The park employs an online reservation system to manage attendance, schedule guests for entry by day, and stagger arrival times to minimize proximity exposure.
Other new technologies include:
• State-of-the-art thermal imaging for temperature checks;
• Advanced security screening technology for touchless bag checks and
• Expanded mobile food ordering.
The park’s reopening plan, which the company developed with its epidemiologist consultants, meets or exceeds federal, state and local guidelines for sanitization, hygiene and social distancing protocols, according to the park.
“We have developed a comprehensive reopening safety plan that includes best practices from theme park and waterpark industry experts, along with top destination parks from around the world, which will allow guests to experience our parks in the safest possible way. This ’new normal’ will be very different, but we believe these additional measures are appropriate in the current environment,” says Six Flags President and CEO Mike Spanos.
A new attraction this summer is Paradise Island, a 12,000 square foot activity pool with water volleyball and a water basketball court.
