We paid a lot of money for six of us and we went on 3 rides over the 6 hours we were there. Lines for all the good roller coasters were any where from an hour and 1/2 to 2+ hours plus a long, long wait to get any decent food. Short wait for awful pizza!! The only way I would even consider going back is with the additional fast track ticket. However that would have made an incredibly expensive day so much more expensive.

The rides at great America are fantastic but don't miss the shows. Legitimately some of the best young talent around. They are each quality performers resulting in top notch entertainment

Entertainment for everyone. We did both parks and loved both. My kids loved all of it. There are rides for every kind of rider. Super safe and friendly staff. When asked my kids said they loved the characters dressed up the rides and the parade at the end of the night.

My family recently spent our July 4 holiday at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. We enjoyed our time and had a great experience. Although we didn't visit the water park during this visit, we have in the past and it was excellent. There are numerous choices of rides one can experience and the value for a great day of fun with family and friends is excellent!
