Park History
Hollywood director Randall Duell designed Six Flags Great America. It was originally built and owned by Marriott Corporation in 1976. In May of 1984, the Park was purchased by Six Flags Corporation and became the seventh park in the Six Flags family of regional theme parks. In 1991, Time Warner Enterprises facilitated the recapitalization of Six Flags Corporation and gained controlling interest in the company. In 1998, Time Warner sold Six Flags Theme Parks to Premier Parks of Oklahoma City. As of June 2000, Premier Parks officially changed its name to Six Flags, Inc.

Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, a publicly-traded corporation headquartered in New York City, is the largest regional theme park operator in the world with 13 major parks in the United States, Mexico and Canada and approximately 800 rides (including more than 120 roller coasters).

Six Flags Great America is located in Gurnee, Illinois midway between Chicago and Milwaukee off I-94 at the Grand Avenue East (Rt. 132) exit.
