The summer of 2020 will arrive this Saturday and with it will come vacation plans to visit amusement parks enjoy rides and have fun. Thanks to the Coronavirus Pandemic the way we used to have fun has changed. But fun can still be had, but will come in a way we are not used to.

In the next few days, Six-Flags in St. Louis and Worlds of Fun in Kansas City will be   re-opening their doors and both Disneyland and Disney World will do like-wise next month but there will be new restrictions.

Six-Flags will re-open on Monday, June 22, through June 25 for Members and Season Ticket holders. The park outside St. Louis will open to the general public on June 26. Hurricane Harbor, the water park at Six Flags, won’t reopen on June 22, though. A reopening date for the water park will be announced later.

Worlds of Fun in Kansas City will re-open to all on Monday, June 22. Meanwhile, Oceans of Fun will remain closed but plans are to re-open it soon.

There will be some major changes at both parks. One of those changes this year, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, is that you must first schedule your time to attend these parks.  While at the parks, guests older than 2 years of age at Six-Flags and Worlds of Fun will be required to wear masks while in those parks. Health screenings and temperature checks will also  be required to enter.  There will be hand sanitizers throughout both parks.

Meanwhile, the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California plan to re-open on July 17. The Walt Disney World complex in Orlando, Florida is re-opening next month as well.  Both the California and Florida operations will be done in a phased-in manner.
