Chicago Six Flags Great America #SixFlagsGreatAmerica

If you are looking for a fabulous way to spend some quality time with your family in a FUN atmosphere in Chicago, head out to Six Flags Great America. There are about three full weeks of summer left and still plenty of time to have thrills in your day.

We had planned a family outing to Six Flags Great America this past weekend, but my son woke up pale and not feeling well. The girls were just getting over summer colds and were ready to go. My son stayed home and I headed to Great America with the girls for a great girly day full of laughter and adventure.

There are so many rides at Six Flags Great America whether at Carousel Plaza, County Fair, , Southwest Territory, Mardi Gras, Hometown Square, or Southwest Territory. I hand the girls maps and they let me know what they want to ride. We navigated thorugh the park quite easily, even with the crowds.

If you happen to have little ones, there is even an area for them to enjoy. Six Flags Great America has three kids areas just for young ones, including KIDZOPOLIS and Skull Island.

If you happen to have huge thrill seekers in your family, there are plenty of ride for you brave souls! There happens to be some of the fastest, tallest, wildest, gut-wrenching, rides in the country at Six Flags Great America. Those rides look terrifying to this scared momma!After all this walking and excitement, we needed to be refueled and there are numerous choices to fill your tummies. Coffee for me and pizza and pasta for the girls were the perfect choices for us.

We were even able to get a few cuddles in after shopping for some stuffies.
