Out In The Park is an annual private LGBT Saturday night fundraising event featuring unlimited riding of the most popular Six Flags Great America’s amazing THRILL rides with a portion of all ticket sales each year helping to benefit various non-profit organizations.

“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. 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 and we have gifted over $35,000 to various groups,” said Derrick Sorles.

This event is all ages and for LGBTQ people and their supporters. (Kiddieland is closed, so its not a good fit for very small children to attend). Its a private “buy out” event. Meaning the general public is not invited. Could they get in? Sure probably. But negativity is not acceptable and violators will be ejected from the event. We have never had a problem with this. This is safe place to be as you are. Six Flags does not post signs on bathrooms for gender neutrality…..however, at our event, all bathrooms are open for all transgender people.  Use whichever one you feel comfortable with.  This event does not condone gender policing of any kind.
