I am now a season pass holder
Here is a summary of my trip to Six Flags Great America yesterday: phenomenal.
The weather was predicted to be cool with a 40% chance of rain all day. My co-worker Sanj and I decided to go to Six Flags and brave the elements. The weather was perfect. It turned out to be about 68 and partly cloudy all day. The park was pretty empty(except that super skater Tony Hawk was there riding the rides) and there were almost no lines. The longest we waited in line was 40 minutes and that was because we waited for the first car on Superman. Infact, out of our 13 times on the coasters, there was only one time that we weren't in the first car. That was when we got to ride American Eagle twice in a row without getting off. The only stipulation was that we had to move out of the first car where we rode it the first of two consecutive times.
Here is a run down of the coasters we tamed:
Raging Bull= 4 times
American Eagle= 3 times
Batman= 2 times
Iron Wolf*= once
*We decided that the Iron Wolf should be replaced. The novelty of this ride is that you are standing up on it. However, it is a very rough ride and your head gets banged around a lot. We both got off this ride with pretty bad head aches. Either make this ride more smooth or replace this hunk of metal.
