“A Must-Do Activity in Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

If you live in Chicago or are visiting, you must take a trip to Six Flags Great America. With 13 roller coaster, an amazing water park, kids sections, and great shows/entertainment, there is something for everyone at the park. To make the most of your visit, get there as soon as the park opens, and plan to spend the entire day!

“A fun time!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This 6 flags has so much to offer. From an area for kids 7 and under to some world record breaking rollar coasters. The park is so clean (understood being the worlds cleanest park!!) The rides are all different and provide a different thrill. I would totally recommend this park 100%.

“Great Theme Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Six Flags is a great place. There are so many things to do. From thrill rides to the water park to the shows. Its somewhere that everyone in the family can find something fun and exciting to come home talking about. There are sometimes longer lines on busy days but eveything there is worth waiting to experience.

“Good Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Six Flags is a great place to spend the day either riding coasters or hitting up their water park. There is plenty to do, see, eat, drink, and play. You and your family/friends will leave the park pooped but with memories of wonderful times and plenty of laughs/screams!
