Comfortable and Cool Clothes
Make sure you wear breathable fabrics. You want to be able to move around freely, and a fitted dress or tight jeans won’t help. Opt for the loose cotton tee, the relaxed fit jeans, and sneakers so you can run from ride to ride without any problems.
If it’s going to be cold, make sure you layer. You can always take off your jacket if you get hot while waiting in line or while on the rides, but it will be harder to add on layers once at the park. Dress warm before heading out!
Don’t wear clothes with drawstrings or loose pieces that could easily fall off: they are banned by many parks due to safety hazards.
A Water Bottle
A water bottle is a must. You’re going to be doing a lot of walking, running into the occasional roller coaster wall, and/or screaming your lungs out on rides. The chances of you getting dehydrated at some point throughout the day is pretty high. Not only can dehydration lead to headaches, it can also lead to nausea and fatigue (the last thing you want when trying to maximize your fun at Six Flags). It’s important that you stay hydrated so that these symptoms don’t turn your day sour! Don’t buy bottled water while you’re there; they cost an arm and a leg, and will only weigh down your bag. Plan ahead and bring in a reusable one instead!
You should wear sunscreen.
This is your body’s first line of defense against the sun, which is strong and can cause serious damage if you’re not careful. Even if it’s a cloudy day, you’ll burn. If you use SPF 15 or higher and apply it properly, you’ll be giving your skin the best protection against harmful UV rays.
Apply 15-30 minutes before going outside to let your skin absorb the sunscreen fully; reapply every 2 hours or after swimming. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your lips and the tops of your ears—these are common places people neglect!
The sun is powerful! You must protect yourself from its harmful rays!
You don’t have to be a genius to realize that an amusement park is going to be sunny. And while that means you will most likely get a nice tan, your eyes are at risk as well. Sunglasses are the key to saving you from damage from the UV rays! They can also make sure that you look fashionable and fabulous for all of those pictures you will take with your friends!
A Sweater or Jacket (Just in Case)
You should check weather forecasts before you go to Six Flags. You need a light jacket because it might get cold during the night. Hoodies are perfect for rainy and cold days.
- Protect your face. As exciting as it is to ride the world’s greatest roller coasters at Six Flags, it’s important not to forget that they’re also a great way to get burned by the sun. It can be easy to forget in the midst of all the fun you’re having, but make sure you bring along a wide-brimmed hat or baseball cap to shield your face from harmful UV rays.
- Keep cool. It doesn’t hurt that you’ll look stylish too! Hats are a simple way for ladies to add interest and style to an outfit without breaking their budget. They can also help keep them cool if it’s hot outside—either because of their light fabric or because they cast a shadow over your head and neck and block some of the heat from direct sunlight on your face and shoulders.
- Hold items for you. If you need somewhere safe and convenient to store stuff while you ride rides, a hat is a great place for handy things like sunglasses, earplugs or extra cash (in case you want another churro). You can also buy one at Six Flags with the park logo on it so that everyone knows how much fun you’re having!
A Backpack or Fanny Pack (or Both!)
Not only do bags come in handy for carrying important items like your phone and wallet, but they also help you carry some of your purchases home. Six Flags, like many amusement parks, has a strict bag check policy that requires you to submit all of your belongings for inspection upon arrival. Yes, that means even the backpack or fanny pack strapped across your back. You will have to empty out any liquids or other items that violate their rules and then submit your bag to be scanned before being allowed into the park. However, it is well worth submitting your belongings because doing so helps ensure you don’t lose them during the day. Not only is this way more convenient than dealing with a locker later on, but it can help save you time so you can enjoy more rides instead!
You may be surprised to learn that what you wear is actually a really important aspect of your trip to Six Flags. You’ll be on your feet for most of the day, so you should make sure that you’re wearing shoes that don’t hurt your feet.
Sneakers are a great choice for roller coasters because they keep your feet secure and protect them from any harm. However, if it’s a hot day, I suggest wearing sandals because it gets very hot in the summer and sneakers can make your feet sweat even more.
Extra Money for Souvenirs
- Bring your own money.
- Don’t rely on an ATM at the park. They’re notorious for not having enough cash or not working at all. And if you don’t feel like waiting in line for another hour, avoid the temptation to use a credit card or debit card for purchases at Six Flags.
- Don’t buy souvenirs at the park. Souvenirs are expensive and tend to be of low quality. And whatever you do, don’t get any souvenirs using your tickets or season pass. These options offer no discount, and it just adds up to more money spent on things that will break in a day anyway. You’re better off buying something cheap from the dollar store before you go and calling it good!
Whether you’re booking a trip months in advance or visiting on a whim, having your ticket ready before you get to the park is vital. If you book your tickets online, print them out so that way there’s no confusion about whether or not you’ve paid for the day (plus it makes you look like a savvy coaster-rider). If you choose to buy your tickets at the gate, try and do it before getting in line at one of the rides. I know this might seem tedious, but trust me: standing in an extra long line when all of your friends are already on their third ride is one of life’s most annoying feelings.
What to wear to six flags on a hot day
I’m going to be honest here: it’s hot outside. The water rides are a necessity if you want to cool off, but there’s nothing worse than waiting in line for a roller coaster or swapping out your wet clothes and realizing that you forgot your bathing suit at home. Most people don’t want to wear their swimsuits underneath their plain, boring clothes all day. So what do you wear? Here are some suggestions that will help your Six Flags experience be as comfortable and enjoyable as possible:
- Wear a bathing suit
- Wear something with pockets (or bring a fanny pack) so you have somewhere to put sunscreen, keys, money, etc
- Wear sunglasses
- Bring a water bottle so you can refill it for free whenever you need more water
- Wear comfortable shoes
What to wear to six flags when it’s cold
- Wear lightweight layers.
- Bring a sweater or sweatshirt.
- Dress in layers.
- Dress warm and comfortably.
Is there a dress code for six flags
- First of all, you should wear comfortable shoes. The last thing you want to do is find yourself stranded in an amusement park with blisters on your feet from wearing the wrong kind of shoes. Sandals, heels, and flip-flops are a no-no at Six Flags as they’re dangerous to wear while riding roller coasters and other rides. You can also expect to walk A LOT during your visit so we recommend wearing sneakers or closed-toed shoes that will provide support throughout the day.
- Second, please be sure to cover up if you’re planning on going shirtless or without a top or shirt on during your visit. Six Flags requires that all guests wear a shirt and bottoms (shorts, pants, etc.) at all times for safety reasons and in order to maintain a family-friendly environment for all guests. For example, a bikini top would be acceptable but spaghetti straps or other revealing tops would not be allowed inside the park gates as it does not meet our dress code policy for tops/shirts.
These items will help you have a fun day at Six Flags.
- Comfortable clothes
Sure, you want to look cute in your Instagram pictures, but it’s best not to overdress. The weather at amusement parks can be unpredictable, so wear layers and shoes that are easy slip on and off. Jeans might seem like a good choice for the day, but they can start feeling uncomfortable when you’re walking around in the sun all day. A nice pair of shorts or leggings will keep you cool while riding rides and walking around the park. Don’t forget to keep a sweater with you if the night gets chilly after sundown!
No one wants to go home with a red, splotchy burn on their face or arms from spending all day outside in the sun! Try bringing along some travel sized sunscreen for convenience so you don’t have to lug around an extra bottle of sunscreen all day. It would also be wise to bring along some aloe vera lotion in case someone does get burned from forgetting their sunscreen (hey, it happens)!
