About this activity

Most families in the USA are familiar with the record-breaking thrill rides at Six Flags Great America, but in reality they have pretty much EVERY kind of ride for every family member, and every level of bravery! 

Did you know there are SEVEN miles of intense roller coaster tracks? How amazing is that! Don't worry if roller coasters aren't your thing though, because Six Flags Great America has a ton of classic rides, as well as family friendly rides.

Oh, did we mention there is a waterpark too! Hurricane Harbor is a great place to take a break from all the enjoying thrills in water! That's a cool down!

For those slightly taller kids (and take note of the height restrictions!), there are amazing rides like the electrifying American Eagle - where the double-track will take you on a race to the finish line! Enjoy loops and twists with that masked super hero Batman, or plummet (yes, we used the word plummet!) 12.5 stories through the air for that skydiving experience!

Did you know that the Demon is one of the first coasters in the entire world that featured a double corkscrew? Welcome aboard!

But like we said, they aren't all for the brave. There's the fun Fiddler's Fling that will certainly get you into a spin, the relaxing Hurricane Bay with waves just like the ocean, and those Krazy Kups where those little spinners can twirl the day away in their very own mini-tea cup!

Six Flags Great America isn't just rides and water - there are fun events and entertainment for you to enjoy too! Make sure you check out the schedule when you arrive so you can plan your day around what's on - you won't want to miss out! 

We all know about the iconic Six Flags, so why not try it out for yourself and have that thrilling and splashing family day out in Illinois you know you will never forget! 

Activity location
