One of Whizzer's cars in 2010

Whizzer is a steel roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, USA.

At one point Six Flags was going to get rid of the ride to make way for Superman Ultimate Flight, but the guests complained and Superman was relocated to the front entrance area.
