Hollywood wasn't the only industry decimated by the coronavirus. The pandemic kept thrill-seekers at bay throughout most of 2020, as the viral outbreak forced countless amusement destinations — including Six Flags, Disney parks, and more — to close during what would've been their busiest time of the year. But, after months of quarantine isolation, guests will soon be able to get a shot of adrenaline as major attractions around the world begin to reopen with enhanced COVID safety measures in place.

Below, see an updating list of major amusement park reopening dates. Detailed information regarding complete operating schedules, visiting restrictions, and full safety protocols is available on the respective Disney, Universal, Cedar Fair, Six Flags, and Busch Gardens/SeaWorld websites.
