Getaway to Six Flags planned for April 16

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- You can welcome spring with a one-price, one-day getaway thanks to the Student Programming Council at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

SPC Special Events is sponsoring a trip to Six Flags on Saturday, April 16. The bus will leave the Student Center about 7 a.m. and return about 9:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend but those under age 18 must attend with an adult.

Tickets are $49 each and that price includes transportation to and from the amusement park from SIUC, admission parking, and food for the day. That’s a bargain since the regular price for general admission is $45 while parking is $15.

Tickets are sold on a first come basis though as seating is limited. You can purchase tickets at the business office on the second floor of the student center. For more information, call SPC at 618/536-3393 or stop by the office on the third floor of the Student Center. Or, visit the website at
