New Rides, Shops, and Foods at the Park in 2017
We have lots of new thrills and surprises in store for you this year. We’re introducing two new rides, a new taco shop, a new cold treat, and much more to come. Here are a few of the new experiences you’ll find at Six Flags Great America in 2017.
THE JOKER™: A Spinning, 4D Free-Fly Coaster
This spring we’ll introduce THE JOKER, a wicked new experience at the park. This unpredictable free-fly coaster flips you head-over-heels at least six times – or more! Seated in wing seats outside the confines of the track, you’ll rise 12 stories straight up an elevator-style lift and set out on your tumbling journey, including dropping down two 90-degree raven free-fall drops.
Drop of Doom VR: A New Virtual Reality Experience
Drop of Doom VR will immerse you in a 360-degree virtual adventure while riding Giant Drop. Using Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus, you’ll soar 100 stories above an exploding futuristic city and engage in a fierce battle against a giant, mutant arachnid creature that spews crawling baby spiders.
New Menu Items: Tacos and Mac & Cheese Bites
Enjoy new flavors at our taco location. This new dining spot features your choice of seasoned steak, carnitas, or chicken tacos, loaded on corn tortillas with cilantro, onion, and lime. You can also order agua de Jamaica and Horchata. Additionally, try our new mac & cheese chicken boats. Three boats made out of chicken are stuffed with creamy mac and cheese, bacon, and pico de gallo.
ICEE: A New Line of Frozen Drinks
This year we’re debuting a new line of frozen drinks in the park. You’ll be able to pick up ICEE beverages in all kinds of delicious flavors. ICEE will be available in kiddie and regular sizes, plus a souvenir cup to get cold refills all summer.
Exclusive Park Merchandise
We’re introducing new retail items you won’t find anywhere else! This spring, enjoy an exclusive theme park T-shirt – Pass Holders will get special discounts. Throughout the year we’ll also unveil specialty crew sweaters, water resistant pouches, character hats, and limited edition WONDER WOMAN™ movie capes!
A New Way to Collect Park Photos
Our new Picture Passes let you collect all your park photos and access them anywhere. Add unlimited Main Gate, character, and ride photos from the entire day or season to create a digital scrapbook of your time at the park. You may also get discounts on photos and a free print with purchase.
