Two flat rides at Six Flags Great America will be closing for good after this weekend, the park announced Monday.
The two departing rides at the Gurnee, Illinois park are Mardi Gras Hangover, a Larson Loop attraction in the Mardi Gras section which debuted in 2018, and Revolution, a Huss Frisbee that opened in 2004 in County Fair after being relocated from Six Flags Great Adventure.
Guests that have retained their Six Flags membership, anywhere between the Gold Plus and Diamond Elite VIP level, will have one last chance to ride both attractions this Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon. The two rides will be open to all guests after 12 p.m.
Neither attraction’s closure comes as much of a surprise. Mardi Gras Hangover has rarely operated this season and Revolution will soon become superfluous with the coming addition of a taller, similar pendulum ride, Sky Striker, for the 2024 season.
Six Flags Great America had also hinted at the closures with during its Fright Fest event. Amid tombstones listing defunct attractions from the park’s history was an unmarked grave listing the years 2004 and 2018.
The park will be used for a separate holiday drive-through lights event called Arctic Adventure from Nov. 17 through Dec. 31. That event is being staged by a separate company called World of Illumination, not Six Flags, and Six Flags season passes and memberships won’t be accepted for admission.
