A man was knocked unconscious during a fight Sunday evening at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, which has been plagued with numerous fights and disturbances this month.

Sources told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that the incident happened around 8 p.m. Sunday.

The Gurnee Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department were called to the scene.

A male victim was reportedly beaten unconscious and was seen convulsing on the ground near the X-Flight ride inside the park, the sources said.

Paramedics transported the victim in unknown condition to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

Around 2 p.m. Monday, another fight broke out inside the park, a source said. Multiple people were seen being questioned by police, but it is unclear if any of them were charged.

The Gurnee Police Department has refused to comment on either of the latest incidents and claimed they did not respond to any incidents on Sunday or Monday at Six Flags.

Earlier this month, at least four people were injured and a suspect reportedly used pepper spray on people after multiple fights broke out on the evening of June 13.

Gurnee Police Department Public Information Officer Shawn Gaylor said at the time that arriving officers located a large group of people actively fighting.


Officers requested multiple police agencies along with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office to help contain the situation.

Sources told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that multiple fights occurred in the park within a short period of time. During one of the fights, someone used pepper spray on a crowd of people.

One of the fights involved people from Zion and the other fights involved people from Chicago, the sources said.

Police claimed there were no injuries; however, sources told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that at least four people were treated by paramedics, including one victim who sustained a significant laceration and required stitches.
