Hurricane Harbor Water Park at Six Flags Great America to open for the 2012 season this Memorial Day Weekend
Park offers a day of no waiting for U.S. military personnel with new water park virtual queuing system
Get ready to splash, slide and surf at the Best Water Park in the Nation. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park at Six Flags Great America opens for the 2012 season this Memorial Day weekend. The 20 acre water park is free with admission to Six Flags Great America and boasts more slides and attractions than any other water park in the state.
New for the 2012 Season is The Flash Pass, a revolutionary new virtual queuing wristband for Hurricane Harbor. Guests wear a lightweight, waterproof RFID wristband that allows visitors to make ride reservations for their favorite slides. Using kiosks located throughout the water park, guests use simple touch screens to choose their next ride and then scan their wristband. The Flash Pass wristband shows the time they have to wait and counts down until they can ride, eliminating the need to physically stand in line. The Flash Pass wristband is available for rental inside Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.
United States military personnel are invited to try The Flash Pass for free this Memorial Day Weekend by presenting a valid military ID at The Flash Pass sales center. “We are extremely excited to offer The Flash Pass to our nation’s troops this weekend at Hurricane Harbor as a thank you for their dedication and service to our country,” said Hank Salemi, Park President of Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor.
Hurricane Harbor opened in 2005 and features nearly 30 slides, a lazy river, wave pool, wave rider and several interactive water play areas, including the all new Riptide Bay.
