    Chicago Force is planning a trip to Six Flags Great America on Saturday, September 22. We would love to make this a combined Midwest trip of fun and rollercoaster bliss. Since Milwaukee is almost equidistant from Great America as Chicago is, I thought I'd extend an open hand. It would also be a chance for a lot of us to meet face-to-face before Star Wars Celebration in Indianapolis next year.

    For those who don't know (although I imagine a lot of you do), Great America is the mecca of rollercoasters in Illinois. It's in Gurnee, 39 miles north of Chicago. They have two new coasters this year, Deja View and Vertical Velocity. You can find out more information on the park at the Great America website

    It would be great if Milwaukee could come out and join us for this.

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

    If anyone is planning on joining Chicago Force at Great America on Septmber 22, please respond in this thread. I'm sorry I missed meeting you at Gen Con, Twisty Mae. I think you ran into a friend of mine there, Heather, although she tends to call herself Leia.

    I checked Great America's schedule. They've changed it in the last 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.

    You might want to think about how costumes might be affected by being on a roller coaster.

    For those thinking of going, which date would be best: September 15 or October 6 (when the park reopens for Fright Fest)?
