Hurricane Harbor Chicago and Hurricane Harbor Rockford at Six Flags are expected to cause a stir over Labor Day weekend as both water parks open for the 2022 season on Saturday.
New to Hurricane Harbor Chicago in Gurnee last year is Tsunami Surge, the tallest roller coaster in the world. According to the park, the roller coaster soars 86 feet in the air and can reach speeds of 28 miles per hour through enclosed tunnels with open-air slides and five major drops.
This year’s Hurricane Harbor Rockford includes new dining options, upgrades to kids’ areas, and renovations to Tsunami Bay, Illinois’ largest wave pool.
Single-day tickets to both locations start at $29.99. The parks are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Hurricane Harbor Chicago is adjacent to Six Flags Great America in Gurnee at 1 Great America Pkwy. Hurricane Harbor Rockford is located at 7820 Cherryvale N Blvd in Cherry Valley.
