Out In The Park at Six Flags Great America

Returns in 2014 BIGGER Than EVER!

Lady Bunny Takes On Goliath!


A Spectacular Night of Amusement and Entertainment

Presented by MINI Cooper Chicago

That Will Help Benefit AIDS Resource Center Wisconsin (ARCW)

 Saturday, September 13th, 2014 from 7PM to 12AM

Attendees for this year’s third annual Out In The Park Celebration are in for a night of EPIC proportions.  Those who dare will have a unique opportunity to experience GOLIATH with the shortest waiting times of the season!  Setting not one, but THREE new world records, Six Flags Great America’s GOLIATH will be the World’s fastest wooden coaster complete with the tallest and steepest drop, plunging riders 180 feet nearly straight down (85 Degrees) at 72 miles per hour!

All night, attendees can follow the bass to the Hometown Square dance area where The DJ’s of SCARLET Bar Chicago and Hostess Trannika Rex are paired up with the legendary, larger-than-life, over-the-top, gorgeous NYC entertainer that is the one and only LADY BUNNY! Drag Diva Supreme, DJ, and Comedienne Extraordinaire Lady Bunny takes center stage with SCARLET Bar burning up the turntables with nothing but danceable, FUN music and Lady Bunny closes the evening with her trademark, OUTRAGEOUS, pop-culture-lyric-comedy parodies!


Out In The Park is an annual private LGBT Saturday night fundraising event featuring unlimited riding of  Six Flags Great America’s amazing THRILL rides with a portion of all ticket sales this year helping benefit AIDS Resource Center Wisconsin (ARCW).  One of the best elements of this event is that it is closed to the general public and this year our event piggy-backs a daytime corporate buyout so our attendees will be entering an EMPTY PARK!” explains Michael Snell, co-owner of “The LGBT community, their family, friends and supporters can enjoy the park with little to no lines and without homophobic hassles from anyone. It’s like a Fall Gay Pride Celebration with even MORE amusement and entertainment!”

In an interview with “We are very excited that this private night for charity continues to grow every year,” said Derrick Sorles, Snell’s husband of 15 years and business partner, “We are more than thrilled that Lady Bunny is flying in from New York to guest DJ and do her  comedy schtick and be a part of the festivities.  Trannika Rex and the DJ’s of SCARLET Bar know how to have FUN and play music you want to dance to!  Handsome designer Traver Rains will be on hand! Add GOLIATH to the mix of all this and it will truly be a night that’s ridiculously great!”

Sorles continued on to say “The last two Out In The Park Events allowed us as a community to raise almost $25,000 for Chicago’s Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) and Chicago House.  This year were changing it up and raising money for the ARCW because Out In The Park enjoys huge support and attendance from Wisconsin folks because of the park’s close proximity and we feel it’s only fair that Wisconsin charities share in the proceeds occasionally as well.”

We thank the Six Flags organization and Best Gay Cities for this wonderful opportunity to benefit from their 2014 Out In The Park event. The AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, the first Medicaid HIV medical home in the United States, serves 3,000 patients who are all confronting HIV/AIDS, a disease that is expensive, complex and still has no cure. We encourage every fan of adventure and adrenalin rides to come OUT on September 13, 2014 and have fun at Six Flags, because this fun will be converted into crucial funding for the ARCW Medical Center helping patients achieve longer, healthier lives with HIV.”

Dan Mueller, Chief Development Officer for AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin
