After a full year closed to the public, The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor is set to reopen this spring for the 2021 season.
The Lake George theme park, which was not given government approval to open in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is scheduled to return this year promising a safe environment, officials said.
The Great Escape will be open weekends and select dates starting May 1, with daily operation beginning June 24. In February, the state announced outdoor amusement parks can open—with a third of their normal capacity—by April 9.
Additionally, the Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark will be back to full operation beginning March 26.
“We are ready to welcome our guests back to The Great Escape,” Six Flags Great Escape Resort park president Rebecca Wood said in a press release. “The health and safety of our guests, team members, and community remains our top priority and we are implementing extensive sanitization and safety measures to deliver a safe and entertaining experience for our guests.”
Opening weekend will mark the debut of a new ride called Adirondack Outlaw, which was originally scheduled to open last year.
Once open, The Great Escape will be operating under state and local guidelines for crowd capacity limits.
