Six Flags Entertainment Corporation kicked off Independence Day in style this year, partnering with the Coca-Cola to set a new record for the Biggest July 4th Toast in the U.S. 

A total of 22,555 guests and team members across 11 Six Flags theme parks — including Six Flags Great America here in Illinois — raised a Coca-Cola beverage to toast America and usher in the annual Coca-Cola July 4th Fest. This year’s event features exclusive ride times through July 6, with new Coca-Cola Cool Zones, and a spectacular fireworks show to close each night.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with our friends at Coca-Cola in a Six Flags-sized toast to the USA,” says Six Flags Vice President of Marketing and Sales James Geiser. “Both brands represent family, friends, and fun, thrilling moments.”

Additionally, the long-awaited debut of Maxx Force is here! The triple-record-breaking coaster is open to the public at Six Flags Great America as of today. The racing-themed launch coaster goes 0-78 mph in 1.8 seconds! Check out the video below via Theme Park Review…
