Comunicado de Prensa
Después de una extensa revisión de seguridad por expertos en ingeniería internos e independientes, me complace informar que ninguno de los juegos, toboganes o atracciones en el parque acuático resultaron dañados por el terremoto del 19 de septiembre. Sin embargo, el parque acuático permanecerá cerrado durante varias semanas, ya que se realizarán pequeñas reparaciones en algunos de los edificios e infraestructuras. En Six Flags, nuestra prioridad número uno es la seguridad de nuestros visitantes y colaboradores. Extendemos nuestros más sinceros pensamientos y oraciones a todos aquellos que han sido impactados por el terremoto.


PRESS RELEASE

'After an extensive safety inspection performed by both company's and independent engineering experts, I'm pleased to inform that none of the rides, slides or attractions in the waterpark were damaged during the earthquake on september 19th. However, the waterpark will remain closed for several weeks, as small repairs on some buildings and infrastructure take place. At Six Flags, our number one priority is the safety of our visitors and employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the earthquake'
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Personal note

From what I've heard from SF workers, while it's true that none of the slides were affected, several buildings at Hurricane Harbor resulted with structural damage and they are asessing whether they can be repaired or should be demolished. The park will remain closed until further notice.

In the meantime, Six Flags Mexico has announced that 2017 Gold Season Passes will be valid at the waterpark until March 2018.

Is Six Flags Mexico usually open the Fridays in May? I emailed the park and got a generic response that the park is open unless the calendar says it's closed. As of now, they don't have the month of May posted.

I'm assuming it is based on the almost daily operations in April (minus Mondays), but was interested if any locals knew how it's been in the past. It'd be a bummer if I miss it while I'm down there for work.

Yes, it is. Six Flags México usually opens from Thursday to Sunday all year.

Based on the forecast, it looks like I'll be visiting during a rainy period. Does the park tend to run their major coasters in the rain?

It seems that the last car of Medusa Steel coaster has been removed and the last two rows in the station were boarded up. Does anyone know why happened? I imagine it could be a parts donor and to boost flash pass sales as a result of now longer wait times.

As of Cinco de Mayo, each train still had 6 cars. I did notice during my visit that the red train randomly had an orange car and the orange train randomly had a red car.

If they wanted to boost Flash Pass sales, they'd just go to one train operations. I'll be interested to see if this is just temporary or permanent.
