Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water will extend their summer schedules so residents can enjoy the parks before the 2020-21 school year begins.

The company said Tuesday it will keep its current operating calendar in place through Aug. 16 due to Cobb County School District delaying the start of the upcoming school year to Aug. 17.

On July 12, the park will open Paradise Island, a water playground for children, at Hurricane Harbor located inside Six Flags. The main theme park will open noon-6 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and noon-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Hurricane Harbor will open 1-5 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 1-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Six Flags will close each Thursday starting July 16 through Aug. 13.

White Water in Marietta will operate noon-6 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday. It will close each Wednesday from July 16 through Aug. 13.

Six Flags closed all of its parks March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Both parks recently opened for the summer with a slew of safety measures and procedures, including temperature checks, mask requirements for employees and all guests over the age of 2, distance markers throughout the park and separating roller coaster riders to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Details about those safety guidelines can be reviewed on the company's website.
