GURNEE, IL — Six Flags Great America has decided to temporarily postpone park operations.

The park plans to re-open mid-May, or as soon as they can. They're basing their opening date decision off of recommendations from officials.

There have not been any cases of COVID-19 related to the park, but they are prioritizing the health and safety of their guests and team members.

Guests with prepaid tickets will have their validity dates extended until the end of the 2020 season. 2020 season passes will be extended for the number of operating days the park is temporarily closed.
