Six Flags Great America Opens Saturday

Six Flags Great America is back this season and bigger than before.

The park is scheduled to open for the season Saturday, with gates opening at 10:30 a.m.

This season will see the premiere of the world’s largest roller coaster—the Mardi Gras Hangover.

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.
