Six Flags Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Great America


Six Flags Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Great America

The Tornado funnel ride at Hurricane Harbor Water Park near Chicago.

Six Flags, 2006. Used with permission.
A huge tropical-themed water park, Hurricane Harbor features Skull Island, an enormous interactive water play structure. It offers dozens of water gizmos to get yourself and everyone around you soaked. Every few minutes, three tipping buckets unload a torrent of water.

The park also features the Tornado funnel ride. It has over 25 water slides, including the Paradise Plunge and Riptide speed slides and the Wahoo Falls mat slide racers. Large groups can pile into The Big Surf and Bubba Tubba family raft rides. Best of all, the world-class water park is included in the general admission price to Six Flags Great America.
