Six Flags Great America reviews
The park is incredibly well lit up with lights -- but static and animated to music. Really stunning. Not too crowded (at least when we went). They had many shows (wish we saw more) and characters... more »
It was AMAZING. The staff was very helpful especially an staff member named Debbie M. She was very helpful,joyful, and smiley she went above and beyond to make sure that all our questions were thoroughly answered and we got the best discount possible. She was very kind and professional. We were very impressed with her. And we just wanted you to know that employees like Debbie M are your greatest asset to your company that make us want to come back again and again. Please give Debbie M a raise.
I have been going here since I was 14 years old! I started off going a few times each summer and fright fest every year! As the years went by, I got a season pass starting when I was 18. I just turned 25. My boyfriend and I have memberships, as well as season flash passes! Both are 1000% worth it! We have already gone 7 times this season, and will go a bunch more. I love how they added on holiday in the park! It was a wonderful experience. All of the employees are always super friendly and helpful! Other than the prices being high on things (5.49$ for a powerade) it is a great place to go. They have something for everyone! Also, hurricane harbor is always fun :)
