Six Flags Great America


In the Chicago suburb of Gurnee lies Six Flags Great America, where themed sections include Carousel Plaza, KIDZOPOLIS, County Fair, Orleans Place, Mardi Gras, Hometown Square, Southwest Territory, Yankee Harbor, camp Cartoon, Yukon Territory, and the adjoining theme park (separate admission required) Hurricane Harbor. Rides range from the thrill-junkie staples of Revolution, X Flight, and Vertical Velocity to the more family-friendly River Rocker, Condor, and Castaway Creek.  Every October, Halloween Fright Fest takes over weekends and features Scare Zones,haunted houses, costumed creatures, and modified rides.


A five-story freefall makes Dive Bomber the premiere ride for thrill-seekers with strong stomachs.Six Flags parks’ classic Goliath is new to the location, bringing its huge, name-appropriate drops and classic wooden track along.The park's longest, tallest, fastest coaster goes by the very appropriate name of Raging Bull.
