About this Article

Six Flags Great America in Gurnee plans to seek village permission to construct what may be the fastest-ever wooden roller coaster, officials said. If built, the ride would be in the theme park's County Fair area where the Iron Wolf roller coaster once stood. Mayor Kristina Kovarik said the proposed ride would be a big deal to the village.
