Six Flags Great America today announced plans to debut a DC Universe area when the park opens next month.

The rethemed area — currently known as Yankee Harbor — will feature three rethemed attractions:

  2. Aquaman Splashdown (formerly Yankee Clipper log flume)
  3. DC Super-Villains Swing (formerly Whirligig wave swinger)

These three attractions will join DC-themed attractions already operating in the area—Batman: The Ride and Joker.

The new DC Universe area will also offer new dining experiences:

  1. Steelworks Pub — featuring a new beer garden and patio with a menu including Dole Whip (!), Oreo funnel cake sundaes and buffalo chicken mac and cheese
  2. Gotham City Snacks
  3. Central City Snacks
  4. Captain Cold Ice Cream

DC Universe will also feature new retail experiences, a broad, open midway with photo-op locations featuring iconic DC characters.

“Six Flags Great America prides itself on bringing guests new, innovative and thrilling experiences each season, said Six Flags Great America park president John Krajnak.

“DC Universe is the largest and most exciting park enhancement in recent memory. This newly branded area brings together some of DC’s most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains for an exhilarating and immersive experience.”
