Post Pandemic Thrills-Where can we ride?

I am wondering what amusement parks if any are open. Where can we go to catch some roller coaster rides? I am hoping this community is monitoring the pulse of the amusement industry for us thrill seekers.

All the individual websites from the Busch / SeaWorld parks seem to say that they will be open in June. None of the other bigger parks' sites are saying anything. It looks like the smaller ones in the south should be open in June also (ZDT's, Magic Springs, Alabama Adventure, Lake Winnie, Fun Spot ...).

Got an email from Six Flags Great Adventure about them re-opening the drive through safari. That's about it! lol

My two buddies went to Six Flags Great Adventure on 7/4/2020 and had a decent time. You have to make a reservation online, but one of my friends was scanned and one wasn't, so not sure how much the reservation comes into play.

They said the lines were long due to wipe down / cleaning in between rides, and you can't pick the row you want to ride.

Also masks required the entire time.

This is just my opinion, but I won't be returning to a theme park until this pandemic is severely diminished.

Wipe down and cleaning between cycles is unnecessary and just not sustainable.

Operationally it would be better to just dispense a squirt of hand sanitizer for each rider before boarding.

Me and my family are going to Dollywood this weekend. I’m pretty sure we did have to make reservations, but it’s definitely doable. I’m super excited to finally get some cinnamon bread.
