Six Flags Great America

1 Great America Pkwy, Gurnee, IL 60031
Head to Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, to experience some serious thrills. The park, of course, is most popular for roller coasters, which include BATMAN The Ride, SUPERMAN: Ultimate Flight, Vertical Velocity, Viper and Goliath, the world's tallest, fastest and steepest wooden coaster! New in 2016 is the 4D "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis" dark ride, where riders become honorary members of the Justice League and shoot at targets along the way to defeat Lex Luthor and the Joker.

Youngsters can enjoy a set of rides made just for them, such as Krazy Kars, Rocky Road Rescue Service and even a pint-sized roller coaster, Little Dipper. Together, the whole family can ride the Sky Trek Tower, which features aerial views of the park, and THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster, an indoor, dark ride (riders must be a minimum of 42 inches in height).

Six Flags Great America is attached to Hurricane Harbor, which can be added to general admission tickets for just $7 each.

If you're looking for nearby accommodations, consider a stay at KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort.
