BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Six Flags Darien Lake has delayed its opening because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The amusement park is now planning to open in mid-May, "or as soon as possible thereafter," the park said in a release this morning.

Earlier this month, Governor Cuomo ordered all amusement parks in the state to close indefinitely in an attempt to contain the virus.

"For guests with prepaid tickets, the valid dates have been extended to the end of the 2020 season," the park said. "For current 2020 Season Pass Holders, passes will be extended for the number of operating days the park is temporary closed."

Six Flags Darien Lake Members will receive an additional month for each month the park is closed in addition to a free membership level upgrade for the rest of the 2020 season.

There have been no COVID-19 cases reported at the Genesee County park.
