Six Flags rolls out cashierless take-out stores powered by Amazon – Orange County Register
Visitors to Six Flags Magic Mountain will soon have one less queue and more time to spend on a roller coaster when a new cashier-less store powered by Amazon opens at the Valencia amusement park.
The new Quick 6 concept micro-mart opening this summer at Magic Mountain will be powered by Amazon’s frictionless payment technology offering fast, seamless and contactless transactions.
“We are thrilled to partner with Amazon and Coca-Cola on a new outlet, Quick 6, which will open at the park this summer,” according to Six Flags Magic Mountain officials. “This is a joint venture with Amazon and Coca-Cola that will offer innovative ‘Just Walk Out’ technology allowing customers to shop and purchase items without having to wait in line for a cashier.”

The new Quick 6 store at Six Flags Magic Mountain, featuring a limited line of merchandise, snacks and beverages, will be located near the main gate and fountain plaza.
A 400-square-foot Quick 6 location slated to open this week at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey will sell Coca-Cola beverages as well as snacks and park essentials like sunscreen and rain ponchos , according to NJBiz.
Quick 6 shoppers will select a payment method when they enter the store, choose the items they wish to purchase, place them in a virtual shopping cart, and simply exit the store when they are finished shopping. The selections will be automatically debited according to the payment method chosen by the buyer.

The skip-the-line concept was first introduced at Amazon Go convenience stores and later expanded to Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods supermarkets. Amazon’s cashless technology has since been adopted by other grocery stores and sports and entertainment venues.
According to NJBiz, Six Flags bills Quick 6 stores in New Jersey and California as the world’s first cashierless automated stores in a theme park.
In March, the e-commerce giant announced plans to close eight Amazon Go stores in Seattle, New York and San Francisco while continuing to operate more than 20 of the take-out stores across the United States, according to GeekWire.
