New Entertainment Coming to Six Flags Great America and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2013

Guests will have a big reason to stick around Six Flags Great America until dark next year, when they open igNight - Grand Finale, the "most technologically advanced show in the park's 37-year history."  With a combination of singing, dancing, pyrotechnics, video and laser elements, igNight will entertain visitors as a finale to their day at the park.

"By utilizing pyrotechnics, video technology, laser lighting, immersive sensory effects and guest interaction, spectators will feel as if they have stepped into a multimedia universe with a spectacular finish that reaches new heights."

The show will take place in Six Flags Great America's Hometown Square section, which will be renovated to better accommodate the crowds for the show experience.  

“Our guests have been enjoying immersive nighttime experiences for years. igNIGHT — Grand Finale is going to blow away their expectations,” said Great America park president Hank Salemi.

The new show is set to debut for the Summer season, with a specific schedule coming in the future.

An entirely new experience will take over Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Dolphin Harbor Theater next year when the park opens Cirque Dreams: Splashtastic.

The production, tagged as the Most Amazing Show Above H2O, will combine a dolphin show with a Cirque style performance.  Featuring "the park’s popular marine mammals along with the internationally renowned company of acrobats, aerialists and astounding Cirque Dreams acts that will amaze in the air, over water and throughout the Dolphin Harbor Theater."

The combination of the dolphin's "graceful leaps and bows" along with the acrobats "amazing feats of strength" will start to entertain visitors to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in late Spring, 2013.

Cirque Dreams has created several shows in the past for other Six Flags properties, and is well known for their entertaining shows around the country.
