Polar Coaster Challenge

Are You Ready for the Challenge?

Six Flags Great America is kicking off this giving season with the Polar Coaster Challenge! On Saturday, December 7, we challenge participants to take a ride on X-Flight in the brisk winter air -- in their summer gear!

The Basics

Participants will take a ride on X-Flight while sporting their summer gear, meaning tank tops and shorts! While riders CANNOT wear their winter gear, they CAN bring new or unused winter apparel to donate to PADS Lake County to help end homelessness. Each participant will be expected to donate one new or unused cold weather item to donate prior to taking their ride on X-Flight. Acceptable donation items include:

  • Sweatpants / sweatshirts
  • Scarves
  • Hats and gloves
  • Winter jackets / outerwear
  • Hand and feet warmers


Registration for the Polar Coaster Challenge is now closed.
