My Summer is gonna be cool with my Great America season pass. It really is a great value for your money, especially when you get the gold pass with parking included. Love that it's a Coaster aficionados park.

The park was very clean, although the parking and food was a little pricey. We ended up buying season passes and will be returning soon.

Six Flags is a great place for friends and family. What's so remarkable about Six Flags is it accomodates people of all ages. They even have a children park that includes games, kiddie rides, and a play area. It's also a chance for parents to bond with the younger ones.

For adults, young adults, teens, pre-teens, and children a llittle older they have many exciting rides, games, and a waterpark.

Here's the key, plan to stay after 8pm. This way you can ride all of the rides in a short period of time because the lines will be much shorter or come earlier when the park first opens to beat the rush.

Also, if you frequent Great America you probably want to buy a season pass that includes meals and parking.

I hope this helps! Have Fun at Six Flags! I sure did!
