Thanks for the great answers!

New question, is this Eagle model still around? If so, where is it or where was it last seen? Also, what are these books from?

Random Question: Did Whirligig use Z-Force/Iron Wolf/Goliath's queue when it was in County Fair?

No, it was set up like most of the other flats around the park. The extra queue and station were built for Z Force.

Kind of a random question but I'm curious, how did Batman's Single-rider line work? From pictures, it seems it directed you to the Flash Pass Queue, so did the attendant pair you up with a group of 3 and send you through the regular queue, or something else?

It was wristband and then they had a grouper in the station. Similar to Bull. It was way too crowded in that station though.

Was thinking of the season passes and remembered something I witnessed in the park 2 years ago.

I was at pass activation to add my dining pass to my season pass and there was a women in there that had difficulty with activating her season pass. Eventually, they came back and said the problem was that she bought the season pass for SFA not SFGAm. I left after that, but always wondered how that ended. Any ideas?

They probably just switched it over to a Great America one. They may have charged them an additional fee to match the Great America price. I'm guessing that happens more than you would think.

So this kinda happened to my sister when she was in college in California. She bought a SFGAm pass because she lived in Illinois in the summer and would be going to SFGAm a lot. But when she went to SFMM to activate her pass before the deadline, they told her she had to pay extra because the SFGAm pass was less than the SFMM price. Really crappy as she wasn't trying to frequent SFMM and they wouldn't let her activate her pass for SFGAm unless she paid another $70 or so dollars.

Another $70? Damn. Maybe thats SF marketing strategy; conceiving people of buying the wrong pass and converting it for double the price :lol:

she should absolutely should have been SOL. In the day if you didn't process the pass at the park you bought it it, if you showed up at another park you'd h ave to pay full price to get in, then have to go back to the park of purchase to process it, As it should be. Just the fact they let her in makes me loose even more faith in Six Flags

As when you sell a season pass with parking for well under the price of a regular one day admission without parking, it doesnt matter what silly rules they come up with, they are right

Did anyone else notice when they bought their 2018 Season Passes that at the end in orange highlight it said we were purchasing passes for "Six Flags Great America, Gurnee, Illinois" or something like that? You couldnt miss it. Guess they saw what I asked a few days ago hahaha

Does anyone know what happens if I purchase the season pass now during the sale but do not activate it until next year? I do not think I can get to the park this year. Thank you.

I think you just won’t get the gold upgrade or 2017 portion of the benefits.

Question: Going to be a first time dining pass holder and was wondering if they still let you upgrade from items like say regular funnel cake to funnel cake sundae for a small additional fee? Does everyone have to stand in line to get their food or snack or can one do it for the group? Also does anyone know how much the all season drink bottle is going to be for 2018, and is there going to be a coupon for it loaded onto the 2018 pass?

Yes, you can upgrade food items. I think its around $3.00 to upgrade to a funnel cake sundae. If everyone in your group has a dining pass everything can be on the same order, however each of their passes must be scanned.
Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!
