GO BIG! GO BACKWARDS!

To celebrate American Eagle's 30th anniversary at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, the park is doing something it hasn't done in several years. It's running Eagle Blue backwards, but only for a limited time. From August 8 to September 17, riders on the wooden racer will once again be able to choose whether to ride forward or backwards.

American Eagle opened in 1981 and features two tracks that reach a height of 127 feet and a first drop of 147 feet.
