Six Flags Great America, in partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and DC, revealed the thrilling news today, March 24, 2022, that super heroes and super villains will be taking over the former Yankee Harbor section of the park with their own DC Universe land.

DC Universe features three reimagined attractions:

The Flash: Vertical Velocity high-speed launch coaster.

Aquaman Splashdown winding flume ride that ends with a watery plunge.

This newly branded area brings together some of DC’s most iconic super heroes and super-villains for an exhilarating and immersive experience.”
