Don’t come on labor day ever. its so busy
Labor day is packed. 3 day weekend plus nice hot weather equals big crowds.
If Great America is too crowded on the day you go, buy a Flash Pass. It’s well worth it!
I have been to 6flags great America in gurnee a zillion times. I have NEVER seen the lines as short as they were today. 15 mins for every coaster except Goliath was 30. Amazing. I believe it was the threat of severe heat that kept the crowds away. Really wasn’t that bad. If you don’t mind the heat, this was the day to go. I’ll take heat over long lines any day. Felt sorry for the dupes that bought flash passes. Did not need them today.
The park is absolutely packed! The entire back parking lot is full. Lines for roller coasters are minimum of 90 min.
You will need Flash Passes if you’re going on a weekend in the summer. Very crowded!
Staff seems awful this year. Really slow operations right now. A line for Batman looked to be about 45 minutes and ended up lasting 75; 65 if you don’t count the extra 10 for front row
The lines look short. However, the staff seems to be working slower than usual. You can expect to stand in place for long periods of time.
