New_Six_Flags_logoIt’s that time of year! Winter is in the rearview mirror and spring is just beginning to peak through, which means that parks have kicked into high gear getting to make sure everything is ready for the 2016 season.

Most Six Flags parks will be opening shortly, and here’s a full list of opening days along with links to park operating schedules. (Note that parks which are open year-round, such as those in California and Mexico, are excluded from this list.)
