Six Flags Great America Celebrates 40th Season in 2015

In 2015, Six Flags Great America will celebrate its 40th season of operation by honoring its celebration of America, along with the park’s continued efforts to push the envelope in “thrills, entertainment and innovation.”


Great America opened in 1976 in honor of the bi-centennial and to celebrate rich American history. Over the years, Six Flags Great America has evolved greatly, striving to create lasting memories for families:

From its launch in 1976 to today Six Flags Great America has lead the way in innovation with the addition of world-class coasters, state-of-the-art shows and a massive 20-acre waterpark. Next season Six Flags Great America will upgrade the signature areas of the park, Carousel Plaza and Hometown Square, and re-introduce children’s rides for families to share with the next generation of thrill-seekers. Additionally, Six Flags Great America will host weekly celebrations, in-park festivities and events throughout the summer.

Guests will have the opportunity to join in the fun for a retrospective look back at favorite shows, classic rides, plus weekly events featuring the park’s world-class roller coasters.
