Let's check out Scott's report.

Yesterday was an exciting day at Six Flags Great America. Maxx Force is a great addition to the park and is just what the park needed in its lineup.
It was a beautiful morning at the park
Still a lot of work to be done before it's unveiling
The 0-78 mph in under two second launch is extremely forceful.
You take the double inversion with a good amount of Speed witch produces a pretty decent amount of positives forces towards the bottom of the second inversion and head chopper element going into the turn.
The worlds fastest inversion speaks for its self. It gives both airtime and positive forces in the same element.
And finally into the final two inversions coming in to the breaks on the way down.
The ride is on the short side but still extremely exciting, the elements keep it going.
Regardless of length it’s a great ride.
I would like to thanks Six Flags Great America and staff for a very fun and well run event.
This ride is a must ride!
Some pics of Maxx Force in action
A closer look at the restraints, there is plenty of room and we didn't see anybody struggling to fit
The train design is pretty awesome too
And of course, there is the Maxx Force Merchandise, at a very reasonable price point.
Thanks for reading, now get out there and ride!!!
