I'm glad you asked. I've had a chance to talk to a few other members we tossed around the idea of doing a trip out to Six Flags Great America up in Gurnee, IL. How fun would that be right? We can ride roller coasters together and find out who the REAL wussies are amongst us and eat cotton candy all day until our stomachs hurt so bad that we will be praying for death! Now if you aren't quite the adventure seeker like myself, I'm sure there are some nice gentle tea cups you can ride or something. Anyways...
Now there are 2 possible options for how this day would work out.
1) We do a day trip. We can find some common spot and try carpool as many folks as possible and come back late that night or...
2) Do an overnight trip. We drive in the morning the same as option 1 but get some cheap hotels in the area so we can lulz the night away and leave come morning. If some don't wanna do overnight then separate vehicles can be taken obviously.
DATE FOR TRIP
AUGUST 11th w/ PLANS FOR OVERNIGHT
Typically admission to park is around $50-$60 bucks if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure you've seen those Coke cans with like $10 bucks off so it might not be THAT bad.
Hotels in the area are cheap IF we go that route. I did a quick search and found rooms for under $100. So if we split them up that's like what... $5 dollars a person? Just kidding, but seriously...
Then chip in for gas if you aren't the one driving cause ya know, you don't wanna be a douch and all.
So ya, this would clearly be on a weekend (SAT) since it would more than likely fit most peoples schedules easier. Post in the thread to let me know if this something worth pursuing or not. Dates are very flexible so let's see what weekend works best for everyone!
