The challenge to find staff is forcing more businesses to close a few days a week.

Six Flags Great Escape in Queensbury, New York announced the park would be closed for two days each week due to the lack of staff.

The theme park and outdoor water park will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This will allow us to offer a more enjoyable in-park experience the rest of the week, including extending operating hours on the days we are open.

If you purchased reserved tickets for Tuesday or Wednesday this Summer, you can use them on any other day the park is open.

If you want to work at Six Flags, the park is hiring. There's even a $500-$1000 sign on bonus to encourage more people to apply.
