I'll be there opening day, but I decided to skip out on this one to be alone with my sister. I'm sorry guys, I'll slap my hands for skipping out on the amazing meet-up, but my sister got dibs on me first :Pr

Jeremie that's perfectly fine. I understand. If you want to go on Sunday (I'm assuming we're going that Saturday, if not someone please let me know) I'll be more than happy to meet up that day as well. The same goes for everyone else!

I'll be there, although I probably won't be able to make it until around noon or the early afternoon at the latest. When I know more about what I have going on that day I'll try to figure out where I can meet up with all of you.

^Yep. Jer and I might go. Yeah, I know I'll be going both days, but I might not stay the whole entire day on Saturday. I'm not 100% sure yet.

If you go, what outfit will you be wearing??????

Little Dipper looks nice on the 2010 map. It is surronded by rides, its in its on little area which IMO makes it look better. Although how is the park going to be able to pull of Looney Tunes National Park with just Little Dipper?
Also the Magiquest building looks just like the 2009 map just with the game awnings gone. And don't waste your times looking for it on the site, it's only on the ipod app ;)

Six Flags Great America has sent us a new press release about the construction of the Little Dipper, set to open for Memorial Weekend this year.

Six Flags Great America Keeps Chicago History Alive! Construction begins on the Little Dipper, a 60-year-old wooden coaster Six Flags Great America purchased from Kiddieland Amusement Park last November. The vintage coaster has been a family tradition in Chicago for over 50 years, operating at Kiddieland from 1950 until September 2009 when the amusement park closed. The family-friendly coaster will retain its original name and open Memorial Day weekend as the 14th coaster at Six Flags Great America.

The Little Dipper was designed by Herbert Schmeck and built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1950. The coaster’s figure eight track features a three story tall lift hill and runs 700 feet in length. It has been honored by the American Coaster Enthusiasts with the ACE Coaster Classic award.

“We wanted to preserve this important piece of Chicago history for families to experience for many more years to come." Hank Salemi,
Six Flags Great America’s park president.

Six Flags Great America is located between Chicago and Milwaukee and offers fun for the entire family with heart-pounding roller coasters including Raging Bull, a free 15-acre water park, spectacular shows and three children’s themed areas. New in 2010 - the Glow in the Park Parade, a nighttime illuminated parade with Cirque Du Soleil-style music and over 60 performers and MagiQuest, a new 10,000 square foot interactive gaming experience.
