Six Flags Improves Park Accessibility


Six Flags Entertainment Corporation has recently expanded access for guests with physical disabilities and autism. The theme park company is the world’s first to design a restraint harness that will enable guests with physical disabilities to access more of the park’s thrill rides and roller coasters.

Six Flags has also become the first theme park company to be accredited as Certified Autism Centers at all of their properties. The certification was obtained by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). Park leaders are now specially trained, and guides have been created to highlight different sensory impacts with each ride and attraction. Low sensory areas are being added to help guests with sensory sensitivities take a break.

IBCCES board chairman, Myron Pincomb said, “Completing the certification process across all of the U.S. parks is a momentous accomplishment for the Six Flags Team. We know they are committed to continuous improvement and being a leader in this industry, and we look forward to supporting their teams in the future as they continue improving accessibility for all visitors at their parks.”
