Attraction Accessibility

Six Flags’ Attraction Access Program is designed to accommodate guests with disabilities or certain other qualifying impairments so they may participate in the enjoyment of our Parks. Each attraction at Six Flags has been evaluated for the criteria necessary for an individual to ride safely. We strive to make sure that Six Flags is fun and accessible for everyone and lots of guests with disabilities enjoy the park every day.

Guests with cognitive disorders, disabilities or mobility impairments who request helpful accommodations must obtain the IBCCES Individual Accessibility Card (IAC) by registering at www.accessibilitycard.org. The registration process requires the information listed below be uploaded into a secure online portal. Once a Guest has filled out the online application and uploaded necessary documentation, they will be able to access their digital Accessibility Card. Guests will present the IBCCES Accessibility Card and Information Sheet to the Ride Information Center (Guest Services) inside each park to receive any necessary accommodations.

COVID-19 Mask Policy

Masks are required for all guests and Team Members while they are in the park. If you are unable to wear a mask (N95, Surgical or cloth) then you may wear an acrylic face shield while you are in the park. NOTE: Acrylic face shields may NOT be worn on ANY attractions. Only guests wearing a mask may ride the attractions.

Certified Autism Center TM

Six Flags has been designated as a Certified Autism Center (CAC) from the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). We are excited to enhance our level of service and our team members are currently undergoing the certification process. We will be ready to welcome you as a Certified Autism Center in early spring. We will continue to update this page as more information is available.

Safety & Accessibility Guide

This Six Flags Guest Safety and Accessibility Guide includes important information to assist Guests with planning their visit to the park and enjoy its various attractions, rides, services and amenities. In this Guide, Guests will find specific information for individuals with disabilities along with general policies and guidelines.

We work closely with the manufacturer of each of our rides and our policies incorporate the manufacturers’ guidelines as well as the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act. We hope that this Guide will help Guests make the best choices to ensure a safe, comfortable and convenient experience at the park. If, at any time, Guests need additional assistance or a further explanation of our policies and guidelines, they should feel free to ask any Six Flags Team Member.

Attraction Accessibility Program

Our goal is to safely accommodate the needs of all Guests.  Our policies comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and applicable state laws.

Six Flags’ Attraction Accessibility Program is designed to accommodate Guests with disabilities or certain other qualifying impairments so they may participate in the enjoyment of our Parks. Each attraction at Six Flags has been evaluated for the criteria necessary for an individual to ride safety. Our ridership criteria (set forth on page 15 of this Guide) is based on the requirements of the attraction manufacturer and the ability of Guest to utilize all safely restraints and devices as designed, while maintaining the proper riding position throughout the duration of the ride. It is our policy to allow anyone to ride who meets all of these requirements and does not cause or create a legitimate safety concern to herself/himself or others. Our Attraction Accessibility Program matches the individual abilities of our Guests to the ridership criteria for each attraction.

The Attraction Accessibility Program is an accommodation designed to provide equal access to Park attractions and not to bypass other Guests waiting in the standard queue.

The following procedures apply to Guests who wish to participate in our Attraction Accessibility Program:

Guests can visit our Ride Information Center to obtain Six Flags’ Safety & Accessibility Guide to review the rider requirements of each ride or attraction.

Guests with cognitive disorders, disabilities or mobility impairments who request helpful accommodations must obtain the IBCCES Individual Accessibility Card (IAC) by registering at www.accessibilitycard.org. The registration process requires the information listed below be uploaded into a secure online portal. Once a Guest has filled out the online application and uploaded necessary documentation, they will be able to access their digital Accessibility Card. Guests will present the IBCCES Accessibility Card and Information Sheet to the Ride Information Center (Guest Services) inside each park to receive any necessary accommodations.

Note: Only IBCCES can issue the IBCCES Accessibility Card, and not Six Flags.

Wheelchairs

For your convenience, wheelchair rentals are also available next to the lockers after the Entry Plaza. The fee for a standard wheelchair is $25 plus a $25 deposit, and an Electronically Controlled Vehicle (ECV) is $50.00 plus a $50 deposit. The deposit must be done with a Credit Card for both wheelchair and ECV. Because there are a limited number of wheelchairs and ECVs for rent, we suggest you bring your own and/or come early to ensure availability.

Guests may also use their own wheelchairs or ECV’s. Rented wheelchairs or ECVs are NOT allowed outside of the park. Battery recharging is also available at the Rental Center.

Service Animals

Trained service animals are welcome at our Six Flags Theme Parks. Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.  Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties.  Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability.  Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals. Miniature horses that have been individually trained to do or perform tasks for people with disabilities will qualify as service animals.

Service animals must be house broken and remain on a leash or harness and under the control of their handler at all times.  Guests whose service animal demonstrates aggressive and/or annoying actions toward a Guest or Team Member will be directed to remove the animal from the park. 

Service animals are welcome in most locations of the park.  Most of our rides are not equipped or designed for accessibility to service animals.  Therefore, a member of your party must be available to stay with the animal while you ride. Service animals are allowed to ride on the Skyway, Big Wheel, and the Bugs Bunny Camp Carousel on the bench. They are not allowed on Safari Off Road Adventure.

Guests may take advantage of our Kid Swap policy for staying with their service animal.  However, park Team Members will not take responsibility for, or provide care to any service animal.  Refer to the section on Kid Swap for more information.

A Service Animal “Relief Areas” are located in the grassy areas to the left of the Dark Knight, between Teacups and Yum Yum Cafe, and between El Toro and Bizarro.  Owners are responsible for disposing of their animal’s waste.  Please look for this designated sign:

Frequently Asked Questions

Park FAQs 

Does the card apply only to autism, or to any disability?

The new IBCCES Accessibility Card applies to all cognitive disorders and physical impairments.

If I need special accommodations, like an attraction access pass, can I just visit the Ride Information Center (RIC) or do I need the card first?

Any guest who wishes to receive helpful accommodations must first apply and receive the card before visiting the Ride Information Center.

If I received an Attractions Access Pass in the past, do I still need to apply for the new IBCCES program?

Yes, everyone who wishes to receive helpful accommodations must apply for the card before visiting the RIC.

Once Guests receive the card, do they still have to visit the RIC?

Yes – to receive helpful accommodations, they will visit the RIC to receive an attraction access pass during each visit. Upon each visit, guests will need to log into their IBCCES portal to access their active Individual Accessibility Card (IAC).

Is a doctor’s note still required at the park?

No – Guests must complete the application at www.accessibilitycard.org. The IBCCES requires doctor’s notes with more detailed information than the note previously supplied to Six Flags. Therefore, any prior doctor’s note would not be applicable to the new IBCCES program.

How often do I have to renew the card?

You must apply annually for a new card. The card lasts for one year and can be used worldwide at any attraction or property that partners with the IBCCES.

Does the Accessibility Card also apply at Hurricane Harbor?

No, this card is only valid at Six Flags theme parks. We will continue to utilize our existing program at the water park.
