Six Flags Great America gets the OK to install a new roller coaster
Written by Anthony Murphy
According to the Chicago Sun Times, Six Flags Great America has gotten approval from the Gurnee Zoning Board of Appeals to build a 150-foot roller coaster. It will be where Space Shuttle America used to be in the front of the park. The only clues on the identity of this roller coaster is that it will be a transplant from another park and made by the roller coaster company B&M.Tweet
After personally seeing the site on Saturday, my bet would be that Chang, formally of the now defunct Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, will find a new home in Illinois at Great America. There has been pieces of the ride showing up to the parking lot of SFGA and the footprint of Space Shuttle America is not very wide, making it ideal for a roller coaster that is tall, but not wide. Chang, or whatever it will be called, seems to fit the bill!
