I call it Great America because I have been going there for 30 years. The "Big" coasters are fantastic! American Eagle, Viper, and Goliath (the wooden ones) have to be my favorite. They all have the right amount of "rickety wooden feel" to them without...More

Thrill rides: Six Flags Great America has great roller coasters and this is where they really excel. As long as your kids are 48"+, you will have a good time (even better if they are 54"). Timing: Get to the park before gates open. Do...More

Love the season pass and dining pass. It makes having fun all summer affordable. There is also a good variety of options for different food. The amount of food they give is enough for two if not three people.

No, they give you a small electronic device that you clip on to your belt and the attendant checks it as you enter each line
