It has been 10 years since SFGAmWorld.com was launched, and I just wanted to say thanks to all the members, moderators and staff that helped build this site and keep it going.

With the help of alot of members we have covered alot of changes at Six Flags Great America over the past 10 years. It's been fun reading and talking about all the changes with everyone here!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you will stick around to discuss another 10 years of changes at Six Flags Great America!
Go Bulls!

I think I've been here long enough to say congrats! I check up on this place once in awhile and out of nowhere remembered I had an account on this site and what do you know... today is the 10 year anniversary!

Cannot believe I've been posting here for just over nine years now.

Where did the time go?!

Happy ten years!

I've only been on this site for a fraction of the ten years, but I've been a part of other forums and can say this is my favorite. Congrats on the 10 years and keep up the fantastic work.

Hard to believe I've been on here for almost 9 years. Wish I could go back in time and kick my ass, but that's a story for another time and website.

Amazing, 10 years already. I remember when this site first started, I lurked for about 6 months before I finally joined. Thinking back now, I'm remembering all of the old Park sites that were around back then... just about every park had a whole slew of angelfire and geocities fansites, lol. Some of them are still out there, with great pictures of the park at the time.
Finally Coaster Season!!

Wow, everyone's getting old. Luckily, I plan on Benjamin Button-ing myself.

So many great arguments here. Hopefully we can continue to this love/hate relationship for many more years.

<- I've been here for 9 years and it's still nothing compared to some of you.
