Six Flags Great America Opens April 21

Six Flags Great America is back this season and the amusement park will premiere what will now be the world’s largest roller coaster—the Mardi Gras Hangover.

The park is scheduled to open on April 21 and gates will open at 10:30 a.m.

Tickets cost between $54.99 to $74.99 (children 2 and under are free), and parking will cost $26.

The park will offer through April 22, a special $77.99 sale on season passes, with the purchase of a four-pack. It includes free parking.

The Chicago Tribune reports that for every super hero cape purchased for $15 at the gate that weekend, Great America will donate a cape to Special Olympics Illinois and Wisconsin.

In addition, a super hero glow run to benefit Rotary Club of Gurnee will be held at 6 p.m. April 20, with $40-$50 for admission and access to some of the park’s rides.

The 20-acre Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park will also open at 11 a.m. on Memorial Day Weekend. Only those without a season pass will be charged an extra $10 fee to the park.
