Here's what Six Flags Hurricane Harbor will look like when it reopens this week

Summer 2020 will look a little different at the water park.

Just in time for this week's heatwave, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor has released its summer 2020 reopening plans.  

Beginning July 23, guests are able to visit the water park on a reservation-only basis. (This is in an effort to reduce exposure and keep the capacity contained.) Now, the family attraction will operate Thursday through Monday with strict guidelines in place, including health screenings, enforced social distancing practices, sanitized food prep and service, and rigorous cleaning methods. 

While it's exciting to have the option to cool off, some families aren't quite ready to hang 10 on the Big Wave Racer or kick back while floating along the lazy river. For those who are looking to keep kiddos entertained from a distance, check out the Six Flags Safari, a drive-through experience that allows families to get up close to over 1,200 wild animals. (There are two new Siberian tiger cubs who are waiting to say hello!) 

If this week's scorcher is too much to take, visit a local splash pad for a chance to cool off on a smaller scale. And, when it doubt, a trip to the best ice cream shops in NYC never fails.
