    Chicago Force is planning a trip to Six Flags Great America on Saturday, September 22. We would love for this to be a combined Midwest trip of fun and rollercoaster bliss. It would be a chance for our groups to meet for the first time, before Star Wars Celebration in Indianapolis next year.

    For those who have never been there, Great America is a sprawling rollercoaster heaven, celebrating its 25th anniversary. It's located in Gurnee, 39 miles north of Chicago. They've added two new coasters this year, Deja View and Vertical Velocity. You can find a lot of information on the park at the Great America website.

    It would be fantastic if Omaha FanForce could come out and join us.

    I realized I got one of the name of the coasters wrong. It's Deja Vu, not View.

    I know that Omaha is the Midwest city that's furthest from Gurnee, but I didn't want to leave any major Midwest group out of the invitation.

    Thanks for the offer Phil. We brought it up in our last meeting. I have a lack of cash, so I can't go. Later Dawmer

    Even though Omaha is about as far from the Chicago area as Tatooine is from Coruscant, if anyone is feeling adventurous and is thinking of coming out to our wonderful theme park in Gurnee, please respond to this thread.

    I just checked the Great America schedule which has changed in the past few months. They will be closed on September 22. We'll figure out a new date in the next few days. I'm really sorry about this.

    If there's anyone considering making the trip out, what date would be best: September 15 or October 6 (when the park reopens for Fright Fest)?
