Have been here a few times,even though I have not been here in a while.I always like the train that goes around ,and the arcade games,and the bumper cars because they are fun and not as scarry as the roller costers(never been on the roller costers).Only way to get here is the Tri State Tollway(not much in the way of public transportation,but look it up). Fun place to go during the summer.

Love six flags a fun way to spend your day having a enjoying time riding the rooler soters and the rides are so much fun. My favorite thing of the park is the water rides. The food is good but make sure you eat befour going on the rides. The Service is great you can ride free on the rides and not wait in the long lines. they have people with disablities, ride free all dasy they get disablities passes so they gho through the exits top get to the ride. The people at six flags are friendly,give you time, very helpful, talked directly to you and treat you like an adult. respects you give you choices. I recmmend to all who loves the out doors,have a fun time a place to have fun with friends or family...

I have been to Six Flags Great America in the summer and autumn. My favorite ride of all is the roller coasters. I like to go up and down and around and around. It had lots of rides. And it has water parks. I like to see all the Looney Tunes characters. My favorite characters is Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Sylvester, Tweety, Lola Bunny, Pepe Le Pew and Penelope Pussycat.

Terrible!

We had a terrible experience last Sunday. We visited guest services and were given an autism disability pass. My 11 year old son is now too tall to ride the rides in the Wiggles section. The ride "manager" said he needed someone shorter than the line to ride with him according to the manufacturer. (this was for the cars) Next, we went to the airplanes where we were told he could ride, but needed to be in his own plane. I asked about what would happen if he unlatched his seat belt to climb out and was told they would stop the ride Off to the log ride where they did not know what to do with the pass and asked us to wait for a manager (not an option with autism). Directions are on the pass.

I've been here a few times and each time I had a lot of fun. The employees are very friendly and welcoming towards people with disabilities. Although I am not a roller coaster person, I always found something fun. When I was there they had a policy in place where people with disabilities or strollers could go straight to the front of the line, if they had empty soda cans. I'm not sure if this is still the case though.

Great America has really good service and its a good place to visit. The people there are really friendly and really welcoming and they have the best roller coasters ever. Six Flags cares about their members and a good place for people to have birthdays. The service at six flags is really good and they respect me as a person. They are patient when i bring out my money to pay for things.

I went with a group from the Center for Enriched Living twice this summer. It is fun and exciting, I like it because I like rides like roller coasters like Raging Bull and other kinds of kids' rides. I went on Superman and it was scary but I couldn't stop laughing. It is a place to have fun in the summer with best friends. and to have a happy and exciting time together with your best friends any time when you are out of school or in school you can always have fun there and friends are good to hang out with and not only that I don't want to do nothing like sitting at the table for the full summer. No, you have to do something.

Visit the guest services office upon arriving at the park to obtain a disability pass to help your family member with a disability manage the lines and wait times.
