RIPTIDE BAY COMING IN 2011!

Press Release:

Gurnee, Ill. (Sept. 2, 2010) – The Best Water Park in the Nation…Just Got Bigger! Six Flags Great America announces plans to add a 3 acre water park expansion for the 2011 season. Riptide Bay at Hurricane Harbor will boast more slides and attractions than any other in the state featuring the only place to surf on Lake Michigan. The new double-sided surf simulator, Surf Rider, sends out 8 foot waves with 24,000 gallons of rushing water a minute. Just like waves on a real ocean, now anyone can learn how to carve a bottom, do cut backs and learn amazing trick maneuvers as they build their surfing skills. The water park expansion will also include a Caribbean-inspired activity pool with additional lounging areas, high-speed waterslides, luxury cabanas and more attractions still to be announced. Construction is expected to begin this Fall east of the existing water park. Riptide Bay at Hurricane Harbor is set to open Spring 2011.

"From our coasters and shows to our four children's areas and free water park, there is no other theme park in the world that offers the tremendous amount of thrills we do for one price." said Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America park president. "Since opening Hurricane Harbor in 2005 the water park has grown in popularity. We felt the Riptide Bay expansion was the best way to kick off the 2011 season. The new double-sided Surf Rider is an amazing attraction that our guests will have just as much fun watching as participating. Plus the new activity pool, speed slides and lounge area will make a great water park even bigger, better and wetter."

Hurricane Harbor, including the all-new Riptide Bay is free with park admission or season pass. 2011 Season Passes are now on sale for the lowest price in 20 years. Buy yours today at $59.99 when you purchase 4 or more and get the rest of 2010 FREE. Offer ends October 31, 2010.
