I have a friend coming up to Chi’town for the 4th of July weekend. We were thinking of spending the Friday (July 1) at Six Flags Great America, reasoning that most people will be working that day. But my friend disagrees - he thinks most people take that day off anyway, so that won’t be a factor. He also said he’d had good luck going to amusment parks on actual holiday-days, like Memorial Day. Which made me think that going on the 4th might be better, since many people might be visiting family, going to barbecues, or jamming into Navy Pier, or whatever. At any rate it seems possible that Six Flags won’t be too many people’s ideal destination on the 4th of July.
What do you guys think? Would you take your familly to Six Flags on the 4th? Has anybody been there on the 4th, and what was it like?
I’m also thinking about just calling the park and seeing if they’ll release their attendance numbers from last year. That would be fun.
