Because Six Flags is a family park, we expect guests to behave appropriately. Violating our park policies may be cause for ejection from the park without refund. For more information, please review the park policies below.
Six Flags Great America accepts card and mobile payments only at all locations including restaurants, retail stores, games, ticket windows, and parking toll booths. You can either pay for purchases using a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or a debit card. Only have cash? You can convert your cash to a prepaid debit card at one of the multiple kiosks located throughout the park and anywhere in the U.S. where Visa is accepted. We highly encourage you to pre-purchase your parking, tickets, and more online before visiting the park.
No alcoholic beverages can be brought into Six Flags. Alcoholic beverages purchased in the park may not leave the premises in which they are purchased. Excessive consumption of alcohol is cause for ejection from the park without refund. Alcoholic beverage purchases require state issued identification as proof of age. Only one beverage may be purchased at a time by each guest showing proof of age.
We expect all guests to behave in a family-friendly manner. Line jumping, profanity and unruly behavior are offensive to park guests and may be cause for ejection without refund. Guests are not permitted to save places in line, bypass others in line, or exit the line and return to the same place for any reason. Guests exiting a line must go to the back of the line if they choose to return.
In keeping with our family-friendly environment and for safety reasons, Six Flags enforces a dress code. Proper attire must be worn in the Park at all times, including shirts and appropriate footwear.
Tattoos or clothing with offensive language or graphics are not permitted at any time. Examples of clothing not permitting are those which display:
- Graphic violence
- Support of drugs or drug use
- Gang symbols
- Promoting discrimination against any group
An image of an assault rifle or handgun does not, by itself, rise to the level of graphic violence.
Park admission may be denied if clothing or tattoos are deemed to be inappropriate by management and the Guest refuses all reasonable options. Shirts cannot be turned inside out as a solution.
Bathing suits may ONLY be worn in Hurricane Harbor waterpark areas. Guests are not permitted to wear only bathing suits in the dry park. Guests may be stopped and asked to put on shirts, shorts, pants, or shoes as deemed necessary.
Guests are not permitted to enter the park wearing costumes or decorative makeup during Fright Fest. Park admission may be denied if clothing is deemed by management to be inappropriate.
Food, beverages or coolers may not be brought into the park.
Guests using profanity or abusive language, symbols or gestures may be ejected from the park without refund.
Loose articles such as purses, backpacks, and beverage containers should be left with non-riders or secured in lockers. Cell phones or other small items should be secured in cargo pockets, zippered jacket pockets, or waist packs. There is limited temporary storage available in most ride boarding areas as a courtesy to our Guests and lockers are available at the entrance to all of our major rides as an option. Each attraction has it’s own requirements regarding loose articles including some rides where NO loose articles are permitted. Please refer to the Safety and Accessibility Guide for a detailed list of Loose Article policies by ride.
Six Flags and its employees are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items and items that are lost on rides are generally not able to be located and are damaged beyond repair. For everyone’s safety, we will not attempt to retrieve your item while the park is in operation.
Line jumping is strictly prohibited. Guests are not permitted to save places in line or exit the line and return for any reason. Violators will be ejected without a refund.

Six Flags requests that all photographs or video taken by our guests be used for their personal use and enjoyment only. Any use, reuse or reproduction for commercial purposes without the express written consent of Six Flags is strictly prohibited.

Guests are not permitted to enter restricted areas, including ride and backstage areas. Personal items that are lost in ride areas should be reported to the ride operator and Lost and Found. Six Flags will make every effort to retrieve lost articles after normal operating hours. Guests entering restricted areas may be ejected from the park without refund and may be subject to civil penalties.
Safety is our number-one priority. Guests with certain body proportions, or of certain heights and/or weights may not be able to enjoy certain rides if the safety restraints will not operate as designed. Specific ride information is available at the ride and at Guest Services.
There is an inherent risk in participating in any amusement ride. We expect riders to exercise good judgment and act in a responsible manner. Guests must also obey all oral and written warnings and properly use all ride safety equipment provided. Guests who do not comply with ride rules may be ejected from the park without refund. Please refer to specific guidelines posted at the entrance of every ride.
All Guests who leave the park should get their hands stamped at the exit/re-entry gate. Transferring hand stamps is strictly prohibited. Re-entry to the park is by hand stamp only and is not allowed after the posted time.
Selfie sticks, monopods, and similar devices are not allowed inside Six Flags parks.
Six Flags allows smoking only in areas identified as designated smoking areas. All other areas in the parks are smoke-free, and smoking is strictly prohibited. Electronic cigarette users are required follow the same policies. Guests smoking outside of the designated areas will be ejected from the park without refund.
No cannabis or derived products are allowed to be possessed, smoked or consumed on property.
To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests, Six Flags prohibits the operation or use of any unmanned aerial vehicle on, from, or above Six Flags’ premises absent specific written consent. This includes all UAVs, also commonly known as “drones,” regardless of their size, weight or purpose.
