(KGTV) -- Six Flags Magic Mountain plans to reopen this spring, the company announced on social media.

No official date has been set for the reopening, but the company said it plans to reopen all of its theme parks and waterparks for the 2021 season.

“Last year, we set the standard for operating our parks safely, and entertained millions of guests in adherence to government, and CDC health guidelines at 21 of our 26 parks,” Senior Vice President of Park Operations Bonnie Weber said.

The park said it plans to follow strict guidelines upon reopening. "Six Flags’ comprehensive reopening plan, which the company developed in consultation with epidemiologists, meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines for sanitization, hygiene, and social distancing protocols. The plan sets standards for executing at the highest levels of hygiene and social distancing protocols."

Under the state’s color-coded tier system, amusement parks with a capacity of less than 15,000 are allowed to reopen when the region reaches the orange tier, according to KABC.

Larger theme parks must remain closed until the region reaches the yellow tier. Currently, Los Angeles County remains in California’s purple tier, meaning coronavirus is widespread.
