Six Flags Great America is an absolute blast. The park is clean, the rides are fun and they always have something new to try. X Flight and Goliath are two reasons alone why you should go.

I expected more, the raids very good, the organization need a little more, more shows and variety, the food is not to enough good. The aquatic park does not have enough bathrooms. Six flags could be better. I hope next time We get better experience.
