Six Flags Great America Unwraps Early Holiday Gift

Six Flags Great America has announced that for the first time in its 42 years of operation, it will be open into the winter season with the addition of Holiday in the Park.  The new event, which is currently held at Six Flags parks across the country, will premier at Six Flags Great America on November 23rd and run on select days through December 31st.

“Six Flags is creating a new season of thrills as the park is transformed into a winter wonderland with a million dazzling lights and all the magical sights, sounds and tastes of the holidays,” said Park President, Hank Salemi. “We are excited to extend our operating calendar and make Gurnee the premier place to spend the holiday season.”

Similar to the other Holiday in the Park events, Six Flags Great America is promising a robust line up of special activities, live entertainment, more than a million lights and plenty of decorations, holiday themed food and beverage treats, shopping experiences and of course, photos with Santa.

The park will also have many of their rides open for guests, though it is a bit early to predict if all the park's rides will be open or only a selection of them.  They do specifically list Batman: The Ride on their site so we know at least that one is for sure.
