what's more rewarding is that Key lime Cove is surrounded by a great amusement park named Great America. also, there are a variety of restaurants and shops to enjoy.

Great day trip! Water park is the place to begin your day! Even when it is super crowded there are still plenty of places to lounge. Water is clean and well supervised by life guards. Park is kept very clean. Great day! Stay until the end so that you can see the parade and ride one last time on the double decker carousel!

About a 40 minute drive north deom the medical district in Chicago, this Six Flags park was great!

Parking charges are high ($20+) but this is the same at all Six Flags parks these days.

Great rides, queues not bad at all, and the staff were very helpful.

Fright Fest was great in the evening too.

Would love to go back to this place!

Very Crowded and food was unbelievably expensive, even for an amusement part. The park is a little run down, broken brick work and rusted out doors.
