There were too many people. Lines were too long. Food service took over an hour. What a waste of money and of a day!!!

This is an excellent family environment but it is also amazing for people of all ages. Great ride options. Very clean park (even the restrooms!). It's best to go in a group of even numbers because many rides are for pair seating. Go early and stay late to get the most for your money. There are concession options for groups of 4 and more too!

The park was very clean. It was not packed so the lines were very short. We had an awesome time. It was a blast! We all loved the XFlite ride. It is a MUST RIDE kind of ride!

I am a thrill seeker. Skydiving, cliff jumping, roller coasters, heights, you name it- I love it.
I wanted to go to Cedar Point, but it's too far away, so we came to Six Flags Great America and I was SO glad we did! The coasters were exciting, thrilling, scary (the good kind!), and fun. If you like thrills, give this park a chance and have a blast!

Our favorites were: Raging Bull (sit in the front!), Superman, and Vertical Velocity.

If you are going on a weekday- Buy your tickets online!!! You will save $22!

We stayed at The Holiday Inn and it was a perfect stay for us the night before we hit the park.
