WAUKEGAN, Ill., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blend the comfort and convenience of Courtyard Chicago Waukegan/Gurnee with the thrills and chills of Six Flags Great America for one roller coaster of a vacation just outside of the Windy City.

The Waukegan, IL hotel aims to do just that with its new Six Flags Great America Package for vacationers seeking a little adventure through Nov. 1, 2015. The deal includes deluxe accommodations from $173 to $241 per night plus two tickets and complimentary shuttle service to the theme park. Upgrade the package with breakfast for two adults and two children under 12 at The Bistro — Eat. Drink. Connect. Additional tickets also can be purchased at a special rate of $43 per person.

Six Flags Great America, less than 4 miles from the hotel in Waukegan, boasts nine themed regions on 304 acres that include roller coasters, water rides, live entertainment, restaurants, gift shops and a children's area. The park is celebrating 40 seasons of fun with the revitalization of the Carousel Plaza and Hometown Square areas to excite guests of all ages. Thrill seekers can hop on American Eagle, Raging Bull or Batman The Ride rollercoasters for twists and turns that are electrifying and maybe even a bit terrifying. The Logger's Run, Roaring Rapids and Yankee Clipper are sure to get guests soaking wet.

After a day of frolicking at the theme park, guests of the Waukegan hotel will return "home" with a special guest room door sign ready to greet them. Visitors can kick up their tired feet before retiring to a comfortable bed topped with a custom comforter, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows. Travelers who have energy to burn off will appreciate watching a flat-panel TV with On-Demand movies or posting vacation pictures to social media using the hotel's free high-speed Internet.

The indoor pool and whirlpool are additional places to unwind after a long day.  

Fueling the fun doesn't have to end at the theme park. The Waukegan hotel's bistro is the perfect spot to sample thick-cut french toast, daybreak fried eggs, granola yogurt parfaits, smoothies and breakfast sandwiches in the morning before heading out to Six Flags. Starbucks drinks also are served all day. For dinner, The Bistro features appetizers in addition to soup, salad, sandwiches, pizza and a burger. Domestic, imported and craft beers, plus wines by the glass and cocktails, are available in the evening.
