New Event features Northern California’s Largest Combination Halloween and Animal Experience
VALLEJO, Calif. — October 6, 2020 — Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Thrill Capital of Northern California, is ready to #halloweensafely with a new event for the entire family--BOO 2020! A monster mashup with this year’s popular, Marine World Experience, BOO 2020! is a daytime event that features Halloween-themed animal presentations, decorations around the park, and not-so-scary activities in a safe and fun environment. Six Flags worked in partnership with its health and epidemiologist consultants to create a Halloween experience that meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines. For 2020, in place of haunted attractions, the park’s friendlier ghouls will be positioned in open air plazas and midways to pose for ghostly fun photos with park guests. Guests must make reservations to visit and park attendance will be carefully monitored to avoid overcrowding and ensure safe social distancing. Per state requirements, rides will not be in operation.
“We asked our guests, and they told us they still want to safely celebrate Halloween with family and friends,” said Six Flags President and CEO Mike Spanos. “Working with health advisors and our own safety experts, we’ve created a modified version of our popular Fright Fest event that provides lots of signature Six Flags thrills in a safe and fun manner. We will operate BOO 2020! the same way we have operated our parks all summer…with mask requirements, advance reservations, daily temperature checks for guests and team members prior to entry, social distancing, and enhanced sanitization measures.”
BOO 2020! will operate Saturdays and Sundays, October 17 through November 1, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Get the costumes ready for the kids and kids at heart as BOO 2020! Will be offering plenty of family-friendly activities including:
