Great America VS. six Flags, (Who is more accommodating for disabilities)?

By Chelsey Zumpano

I’ve been to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo California and California’s Great America in Santa Clara California, (in my vlogs you’ve seen me go to Great America twice), but you’ve never seen me go to Six Flags and I have season passes for them both. Now I’m going to compare the two.

At Great America I use an attraction pass, which means I get to go in the front of the line. All you have to do is go to the guest relations office and they will ask you some questions like…

1. Do you have a disability?

2. Can you stand in line

3. Can you get on rides with no assistans?

So its pretty simple and you don’t have to show anything to prove you have a disability. When you go on rides you go to the exit and show them your paper, then they give you a time to come back or you get to go on right then. Being able to go to the exit means its easier to get on the ride with out being trampled and you can get guided to the ride easier. I also have trouble standing for a long time, so I’m able to sit down with out having to move or worry about being steppedon. I like the rides at Great America better because they are softer rides, (if that makes sense), and I’ve been Six Flags so many times before that they are boring. The people at Great America are good at guiding me on and off rides.

According to the Six Flags website you need to have a Doctor’s note stating you have a disability that makes it hard for you to stand in lines, so that’s why I’ve never used it before. But I do love looking at all the animals at Six Flags.

In conclusion Great America is more accessible then Six Flags.
