Raging Bull at Six Flags Great America will celebrate its 15th season, having given more than 23 million rides since its debut. Guests are invited to vote for Raging Bull or Goliath in the Ultimate Twitter Challenge for a chance to enjoy extended ride time on the winning coaster.

Home to the most innovative and thrilling roller coasters, Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world’s largest regional theme park company, is commemorating National Roller Coaster Day – August 16 – at all of its North America theme parks with special roller coaster events and social media contests.

“We offer the broadest and most exciting collection of roller coasters and theme park attractions in the world,” said Tom Iven, senior vice president U.S. operations for Six Flags.

The company’s parks feature more than 130 coasters and its roster of iconic rides is legendary with many consistently ranked among the highest, steepest and fastest in the world.

“From our high-thrill, world-record breaking rides to our pint-sized thrills, Six Flags is the perfect place for the young and young-at-heart to celebrate National Roller Coaster Day,” added John Odum, senior vice president international park operations for Six Flags.

Six Flags Great America will also offer fun, interactive scavenger hunts and coaster competitions on Twitter and Instagram. Guests are encouraged to post photos with their favorite roller coasters to #SFcoasters.
