Park Opening delayed due to COVID-19 virus

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Did anyone else take the Fright Fest survey? It suggested all kinds of scenarios, even staying in your car interacting with FF scare actors. FF could happen in a much different form, but that depends on the state I guess.

From what I’ve heard, the water park closed September 7 and then that’s it! They aren’t planning on opening for the rest of the year as it looks unlikely that they will get approval from the state.

Holiday in the park is still listed. Out of all of the festivals, I think they could run that without rides or do a drive thru.

True. Nothing has been officially announced by the park. But from what I’ve been told. The park will begin sending employees home after the Sept. 7 because they aren’t planning on opening.

Stuff could change but it sounds like they don’t think it would be worth it to just open for a month or two. (Should they get approval)

I don’t think the drive-thru option has been discussed. They are preparing to “end the season” on Sept. 7th.

Again, I’m not saying this is for certain but it’s what I’ve heard and obviously stuff is subject to change.

Not a fan of the idea of a "drive thru" Holiday in the Park. I've seen the average park guest, and I've seen the average driver. I'd rather them just stay closed entirely and not have anything get damaged :lol:

At this point it does seem most likely our season is at an end. (I work Weekends)
I did get to Hurricane Harbor once and I went to Magic Waters in Rockford which is the first time I've used my membership away from my Great America home park.

I think you may be right.
Oh well
I went to St. Louis and I may head to Fiesta Texas and over Texas in October.
I have a Cedar Fair pass so I was able to get to cedar point 3 times kings island 4 times and worlds of fun twice so I thankfully was able to get my coaster fix in for the season. But I miss my home park and it sucks that it was never able to open but I also understand.

I went to Six Flags STL 1x and Kings Island (2 trips, for 3 total days there). But I miss our home park as well.
I'm really hoping they open for a normal HITP, especially considering my birthday is in December and this year it's a multiple of 10 for me!

I miss the park so much, I just gave my bf an entire rundown of all the attractions we've gotten since 2005 with a description & pictures. He was about to fall asleep. Walking. Lol

UPDATE September 7th
Hurricane Harbor is now closed for the season. Great America still has not received approval to open the theme park, but they are still trying to get approval to open.

Unfortunately, I just don't see that happening. I really think Pritzker was close to letting them open but once other factors caused the numbers to spike, game over.
