That lines up with their shortened hours, since the weekdays in the summer are only 10:30-9pm now and not 10pm.

Not like I normally go in the middle of summer much anyways.

Park stated on Facebook that they will give us the 4-1-1 on all the updates, which I assume will be on 4/11


Lol wait - 4-1-1 means information. It doesn’t mean April 11th. They’re just basically stating they’ll keep you updated. ;D


They've been saying that since January

Two new places on the dining plan - Big Lou's Italian Beef and Six Below in Southwest Territory. Is this Six Below new and possibly replacing Cold Stone? Scoop ice cream will be a great addition to the snacks. Still would love to see just a regular bag or box of popcorn on the snack plan. For something as cheap and high margin on popcorn, I'm still surprised they don't offer this. Italian Beef or Sausage will be a nice option!

Also looks like the Firehouse Primo's Pizzeria is gone and possibly replaced by Firehouse Snacks.

I'm guessing the Six Below frozen yogurt location inside the firehouse is also gone. I had only seen it open a handful of times last year, but it definitely was one of the better snack credits out there. Also the hidden freestyle machine there was awesome until it ran out of flavors never to be stocked again.

I have a bigger problem with the 10:30 openings. I miss 10am openings that were much more relaxed vs starting the day in a line just to get in.

Agreed! 9PM in the peak of summer?? Perhaps this was just a copy/paste error by whomever updated the hours??

You know if the neighbors don't like it maybe they should move. They knew what they were signing up for when they moved onto that street. I would really hope its an error, but I sincerely doubt it. Gotta pay for the lawsuit and Mardi Gras Hangover somehow.

I sadly think the 9pm closures are so Diamond Elite Members can be at the park after it closes

I fully agree. For 10am opening, you can arrive at 9:45 and spend just a few minutes in line getting through. 10:30am and you can either get there at 10am, wait in line for a half hour, and get in the park when it opens, or arrive at 10:15 and spend 45 minutes in line as people slowly crawl through security and ticketing, getting into the park well after opening.

According to Screamscape, Six Flags Great America is dropping Hanna Barbera and Camp Cartoon will be generic for this season. If I had to guess, I would expect a Bugs Bunny Boomtown re-theme for 2019... possibly an expansion? Who knows!

Maybe that's why they removed that tiny Ferris wheel, to make way for a larger expansion next season. This is just speculation on my part, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if they did that.

This was also in the article:

"This wont be the only surprise coming for the park however, as our sources tell us that we can expect Six Flags to announce that the Holiday In The Park winter festivities will also be coming to the park in the near future."

Holiday In The Park would be awesome! Alot of rides might not be operating, but it would be cool to see the park decorated for Christmas... and the fountain in front of the carousel frozen for ice skating, lol As far as Camp Cartoon goes, I really hope that old screamscape rumor comes true! Consolidate the Kidzopolis and Camp Cartoon rides into one huge kids area. That would open alot of room in front of the American Eagle for flat rides, more games, etc. and we would finally have one solid kids area.
