Technology and Engineering Day

Come learn and play at your favorite theme park!

Six Flags Great America presents the ninth annual Technology and Engineering Day on Thursday, May 14, 2020. This educational event includes a special presentation lead by a Six Flags corporate engineer. The engineers are responsible for not only coming up with new and innovative ride ideas, but also how new rides and attractions are designed, constructed and operated.

This presentation will cover the process that Great America takes when choosing a new attraction, understanding the physics of the ride and the fine-tuning process before a ride opens. Join us for this real world application of engineering. The presentation begins at 11 a.m. and students and faculty are free to enjoy all of Great America's world-class coasters and attractions for the remainder of the day.


You can order tickets directly online or fill out an order form. Check back in spring of 2020 to purchase tickets online, or click the link below to print the order form.
