Six Flags Great America and Special Olympics Illinois have teamed up again for the annual Coaster Challenge on Saturday, September 18.

Challengers will ride along as each roller coaster clicks and climbs the track, adding up the collective distance to complete the race. There has never been such a thrilling way to support the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois – so get on board with the 2021 Coaster Challenge. It’ll be a scream!

How Does It Work?

Participants complete registration for $25, then choose the distance they want to travel on Six Flags Great America's world-class roller coasters. Options include the equivalent of a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or marathon.

Those participating will receive early entry to the park to kick start their day. Plus, Challengers will get VIP access to ride Raging Bull, Maxx Force, Viper, and Whizzer from 9:00-11:00 AM CT. VIP early entry allows participants to get extra laps in before the park opens. All participants will receive a THE FLASH Pass to all roller coasters until 1:00 PM.

Fundraising Levels

Challengers can choose from four different fundraising levels. Each level corresponds to a required fundraising minimum per participant.

Ride the distance of a 5K - $150 fundraising minimum ($100 for current season pass holders)
Ride the distance of a 10K - $300 fundraising minimum
Ride the distance of a half marathon - $500 fundraising minimum
Ride the distance of a marathon - $1,000 fundraising minimum

Coaster Challenge participants will have their scorecard stamped as they exit each ride, and the total distance will be tallied when they check in at the scoring table upon completion. All Coaster Challenge participants must adhere to all Six Flags Great America park and guest safety policies and procedures.
