Great Escape Delayed Opening – Helping the Community
Social distancing restrictions have led to the announcement that Six Flags Great Escape will delay its opening for the season. The theme park has also been assisting the community in many ways during the pandemic. According to News 10 ABC, Six Flags Great Escape was to open in early May but because of the COVID-19 outbreak, they are pushing it back to at least mid-May or later.
The park will extend all prepaid tickets for the season and give season pass holders an extension on their passes. If you are a resort program member, you will get a free month of membership for each month the park is closed.
The Great Escape has also been helping the community of Warren County. They have donated nine hundred surgical masks to Glens Falls Hospital. They have also helped SUNY Adirondack students with free wi-fi hotspots in the Johnny Rockets parking lot attached to the Great Escape Lodge so that they can complete online courses. The Washington County Office for the Aging has been using their refrigerators and freezers for food storage.
