Last Chance To Save: Season Pass Offer Ends June 15th Hurry While it Lasts!!
Make sure you plan ahead for your visit to our all-new Hurricane Harbor water park. Free with park admission, Hurricane Harbor lets you cool off in between our 11 world-class roller coasters. Follow these tips to help prepare for a carefree day.
1. Bring a towel and extra clothes
You’ll definitely need to wear a swimsuit around Hurricane Harbor, but make sure you also have a towel and appropriate cover-ups before heading back into the theme park. If you do forget your attire or necessities, you can pick up everything you need at our new beach-themed gift shop Tradewinds. We recommend bringing a bag with an extra set of dry clothes so you can stay comfortable for the rest of your day. If you need a place to store your belongings, rent a locker at the front gate of the theme park or in the water park.
2. Arrive early to claim your equipment
We have a limited number of lounge chairs, picnic tables, lockers, tubes and life vests available for your convenience. Plan to arrive at the water park early in the day so you can claim yours. The water park opens at 11 am every day, so you can stay refreshed during the afternoon and head back to the coasters in the evening.
3. Follow our lifeguards and safety tips
To keep you safe, all our park lifeguards are trained and certified by the prestigious Jeff Ellis & Associates. They’ll keep a watchful eye over our wave pool, kids splash playground and water slides to make sure everything is going smoothly. Additionally, weak swimmers should wear a life vest and stay in the shallow areas of the pool.
4. Protect yourself against summer mishaps.
Even though you’ll be in the water, it’s still important to stay hydrated with ice cold beverages during the day. Furthermore, be sure to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day as it may rinse off in the water. We suggest wearing sandals or water shoes as you walk around the park.. We know you can’t wait to enjoy the water park, but make sure to walk – don’t run – to stay safe!
Hurricane Harbor is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Celebrate Dad’s special day at Six Flags

Best Ways to Cool Off on a Hot Day
Guests tell us how to stay cool with these refreshing remedies!
During hot summer days, it’s important to stay cool at the park. We asked guests how they rejuvenate and 22 percent hop on our water rides, like at our new water park, to get soaked from head to toe. About 10 percent pick up a frozen treat, like ice cream or cold beverages to stay hydrated and chill. Five percent kick back in one of our shaded areas or stand under a spraying mister and 62 percent do all of the above to stay refreshed all day long.
