[PLC] Six Flags Great America - Recreation

Recommended Posts

Kevin Kline ~ 23 ~ Park Spokesperson


Six Flags announced 5 years ago that a new park would be opening in my hometown of Gurnee IL.

Construction has been underway for quite some time now and here are some updates.





The future entrance of the park, lots of attractions to be found in the background.



Orleans Place, a 19th century rendition of New Orleans's French Quarter.



Primo's Pizzeria will feature Italian style pizza, chicken, salads and cold beer. The Dark Knight Coaster, a BATMAN themed indoor steel coaster is pictured in the back.



Superman - Ultimate Flight will take riders on a 105-foot flying adventure.



V2 - Vertical Velocity, a 70-mph steel twisted impulse coaster, will be anchored inside Yankee Harbor.



Hometown Square, themed to small Midwestern towns.



The Whizzer. A classic Anton Schwarzkopf Speedracer roller coaster.



Multiple turns and dips to be found on The Whizzer's 3100-foot course.



Anchored into Hometown Square is the indoor amphitheater; Grand Music Hall.



Hometown Park will feature numerous kid's rides, attractions and games.



Work recently started on landscaping and we will announce an official opening date soon.



Overview of progress.




Until next time~
