SFGAm Coaster Challenge 2022

Coaster Challenge

Saturday, September 17, 2022

Six Flag Great America and Special Olympics Illinois have teamed up for the Coaster Challenge on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Take the run out of racing & ride your way to the finish line to support the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. 

Simply register for $25, fundraise and ride the distance of a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon on Six Flags Great America’s world-class roller coasters. The earlier you register, the more time to fundraise! All fundraising must be completed by the event date.

All Coaster Challenge participants will receive early entry to the park to kick-start their day. Challengers will get VIP access to ride BATMAN: The Ride, THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity, THE JOKER Free-Fly Coaster and Little Dipper from 9:00-11:00am. VIP early entry allows participants to get extra laps in before the park opens. All participants will receive a THE FLASH Pass to all roller coasters until 1:00pm.

Coaster Challenge participants can choose from four different fundraising levels.
Each level corresponds to a required fundraising minimum per participant.

Fundraising Levels

  • Ride the distance of a 5K = $150 fundraising minimum
  • Ride the distance of a 10K = $300 fundraising minimum
  • Ride the distance of a Half Marathon = $500 fundraising minimum
  • Ride the distance of a Marathon = $1,000 fundraising minimum
Coaster Challenge participants will have their scorecard stamped as they exit each ride, and the total distance will be tallied when they check in at the scoring table upon completion. All Coaster Challenge participants must adhere to all Six Flags Great America park and guest safety policies and procedures.
