We always have fun here. The only thing I don't like is that most of the restaurants are closed most of the times we go, and the service can be bad. Rides are fun, and lines aren't TOO bad if you don't go on a Saturday. Park has been clean every time we go. I wish they had more long, indoor shows, though. This has improved with the 2018 season, but there needs to be more 30 minute + shows. 2 inside ones this year was awesome, but all Six Flags locations have more than this. I would give the park a 5 if the restaurants were all opened and didn't take forever, and if shows weren't limited.

Six Flags Great America is a pretty great theme park. There are many attractions to choose from as well as many different kinds of souvenirs to be found. However, the theme park has changed quite a bit since the 80s in terms of how the park is operated. In the past, the workers seemed to be more dressed appropriately(as in certain uniforms in certain areas of the park), there were many more shows and other mild attractions to see, and it felt more of an amusement park instead of a thrill park. Nowadays, it seems as though Six Flags is more concerned about keeping the thrill of the roller coasters as high as possible in order to attract as many thrill-seekers as possible. They seem to be much less focused on the other attractions. Is this change for the better? It all depends on what you like in an amusement park. Either way, the park is still a good theme park and would recommended to any thrill seekers out there.

It’s a great place for adults and kids. It’s honestly a great time with your family and friends. Sometimes the lines are long but a lot of people go to the water park Hurricane Harbor which is in six flags. If you love roller coasters this is the place to be. The food is pricey but it’s good. I really love it here. I get the seasons pass every year and the dining pass to where you pay once eat all year.

Never been there but it exceeded my expectations. We had such a great time. Very clean. Love the flash pass. We stayed until the park was closing and got to enjoy fire works as we rode the Superman. It is expensive but all theme parks are. Love the roller coasters. But the Joker was my favorite. It's a must go to...but just know there are people who forget to look in the mirror before leaving the house so don't be shocked at what you might see.

Great rides. Tons of people but lines were not bad at all. Cleanest amusement park I have ever been to. Like most tourist attractions the food and games were super expensive. But that is the price you pay for a good time.
