Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor are two great parks that you can experience at one destination. Located in the heart of the Midwest in Gurnee, Illinois, Six Flags Great America is 45 minutes north of Chicago and south of Milwaukee. Six Flags Great America offers endless adventures for the entire family with 17 heart-pounding coasters, a 20-acre water park, spectacular shows, a nighttime parade and three children’s areas. Try Tsunami Surge will be the tallest water coaster in the world at a height of 86 feet! Reach a top speed of 28 miles per hour over 950 feet of enclosed tunnels and open air slides featuring three gravity-defying blasts and five breathtaking drops, along with five hairpin turns.  Splash your way into summer—Six Flags is the place to be!
