According to NBC Chicago, there are plenty of new things for thrill enthusiasts to enjoy at Six Flags Great America this season. The thrill capital of the Midwest opens this weekend and if you went last year the park is going to look different a couple of weekends this year and taste different too. In the article they say...

"And this year, there are a few new dining options and festivals. “As we kick off the 2023 season, our focus is on providing guests with a lineup of elevated events and experiences, both returning and new,” Park President John Krajnak said in a release.
