Gurnee, Illinois - On Saturday, Six Flags officials were forced to shut down the Skull Island pool after someone defacated. A family was turned away around 4:00 p.m. and people were not allowed to the area.
Also on Sunday, Katy Enrique, the spokeswoman for Six Flags Great America confirmed, that power was restored in affected areas that caused rides to stop. The power outage was reported around 7:30 p.m. just three hours before closing on Saturday night and all the people affected were safely unloaded from several rides, according to Enrique.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) reported previously that all the warning signs of danger at Gurnee's Six Flags are only posted in English and lack signs in Spanish to warn the hundreds of Spanish speaking people that attend Great America daily.
