Six Flags Great America offers a unique experience with two parks for the price of one. Along with world class roller coasters, games and shows there's also Hurricane Harbor, a massive 20-acre waterpark FREE with theme park admission. Hurricane Harbor features 30 water attractions including a half mile long lazy river, Castaway Creek; family raft rides, and one of the world's largest interactive water playgrounds, Skull Island.
The theme park features 14 thrilling roller coasters including X Flight, a cutting edge wing coaster. With no track above or below, X Flight defies gravity and provides adrenaline-pumping moments with extreme fly-throughs. This summer, Six Flags Great America is offering a full season of roller coasters running backwards. BATMAN: The Ride, Viper and the American Eagle will each run in reverse for a limited time this season. Six Flags also has over 20 children's attractions around the park including Camp Cartoon and Kidzopolis. With so much to do and see, a visit to Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor makes the perfect weekend getaway. Check out sixflags.com/greatamerica to plan your trip today. (less)... Read more
