Muslim Day at Six Flags a time to relax and connect with others.
For the fourth time since 2004, Six Flags in Gurnee is sponsoring Muslim Day, bringing in outside caterers to provide halal food and turning an amphitheater into a makeshift mosque to accommodate Muslims who observe dietary laws and strict prayer schedules. Muslims who plan to go say they appreciate the sense of community the event creates as well as the opportunity to talk about Islam with curious non-Muslims at the park.
Dude, if they did that at Disneyland, I would be stoked - that muzzein starts the call to prayer and I am headed to Space Mountain . . . no lines! Dang, that offers more opportunity than the Electrical Parade.
How do you sign, "Oh #@&$!" as you head down that first drop?Six Flags also has created special events for Catholics, Baptists and Methodists, park officials said, and Episcopalians have booked the amphitheater for prayer services. Traditional Polish dancers joined in the park's opening ceremonies during a recent Polish Day, and last week the park supplied American Sign Language interpreters during a "hard-of-hearing-awareness day."
The DigiBrother, who has both a bizarre sense of humor and suffers from the disorder, would be plugging for "Tourette's Awareness Day."
