General Information

Is there a dress code for Grad Nite?

Yes. We don't require black tie and formals, but you should definitely dress comfortably. Make sure to check the weather too! A light jacket may be a good idea. Additionally, all schools must adhere to their school's dress code policies and must meet, at minimum, Six Flags Great America’s standard park dress code.

What are the Grad Nite park hours?

Grad Nite starts at 10:00pm and ends at 4:00am. With the Extreme Grad Nite package, Ultimate Grad Nite package, or Grad Nite VIP package, you can enter the park at 9:00pm for an hour of Exclusive Ride Time!

Is the entire park open on Grad Nite?

Hurricane Harbor waterpark, water rides, and children’s areas will not be open. But that still leaves you with 15 coasters and tons of other thrilling rides to ride all night long!

Is Grad Nite a general public mix-in event?

No. Grad-Nite is not open to the public. It's a private event held exclusively for graduates and chaperones. You must have a Grad-Nite ticket to attend. Sorry -- Season Passes are not accepted for Grad-Nite.

What if I don’t like roller coasters? Are there other things to do?

There is no shortage of fun during Grad-Nite! We have several DJ-hosted dance areas plus interactive games and activities around the park to keep you busy.
