Get Your Thrills at Six Flags Near Lake Forest, IL

at a theme park

The Apartments at Kelmscott Park is not only the best place to live in Lake Forest, we believe that it’s the best place to live in the Chicago area! Not only is your luxury apartment just a short walk from shops, dining, and the Metra, you’re only a short drive from amazing attractions like Six Flags. Now that summer is officially here, you need to plan a trip to one of the best theme parks in America.


If you love roller coasters, you’ve come to the right place! There are over a dozen of them at Six Flags Great America, including the newest record breaker, Maxx Force. Goliath is a world record breaking wooden coaster, while The Joker will have you flipping outside the confines of a traditional track.

Maybe you don’t appreciate thrill rides. You’ll still have a blast on the restored double-decker carousel, the log flume, and the swings. There’s something for everyone at Six Flags!

Water Park

For only $10 more, you also have entry to the water park, Hurricane Harbor. (Note that admission to the water park is included when you purchase a season pass.) There are tons of fun water slides, a lazy river, and a gigantic wave pool. You can even catch a wave on the realistic surf simulator. You may want to splurge and rent a luxury cabana which offers a shady and private place to relax on a hot day.


If you purchase tickets online, you can expect to pay around $50 for an adult single day ticket. There is also a $30 parking fee. However, since Six Flags is so close to your home in Lake Forest, it would be worth it to purchase a season pass. Depending on which pass you buy, you may get perks such as free parking, bring-a-friend days, discounts on food, and even admission to other Six Flags parks throughout the United States. There is also a membership option that includes skip-the-line passes and unlimited soft drinks during your visits. You can read more about ticket options and purchase tickets here.
