It is a simple question but not a simple answer, perhaps. Do people still scream for ice cream? One way to find out is listen on July 15 when it is Ice Cream Day - officially.
However, one sure-fire to hear screams on National Ice Cream Day is head to Six Flags.
Why? Well get this, Mars Chocolate North America has announced an exclusive partnership with Six Flags Entertainment Corp. to help consumers celebrate National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 15. Guests who visit select Six Flags parks across the country on National Ice Cream Day will have the opportunity to enjoy special offers, activities, giveaways, and of course delicious Mars Ice Cream products. Those select locations includes Six Flags Great America, Gurnee, IL.
Here is how they put it: "Mars Ice Cream invites YOU to join us for National Ice Cream Day at Six Flags – the coolest day at the park! We’ll be celebrating all day with special offers, giveaways, and more – and don’t forget to enter the Six Flags Ice Cream Funday Sweepstakes!"
Special events and activities planned for July 15 at Six Flags include:
- Rise and Scream Event: Ice cream and theme park rides are a natural pair – they both make consumers scream in delight! The first 200 guests to arrive early at one of the 11 participating Six Flags parks on National Ice Cream Day will have the chance to receive a MARS Ice Cream Rise and Scream Wristband, which provides special VIP access to select rides before the parks open.
- Mars Ice Cream Social Hour: Take a break from the heat and cool down with a frozen treat during the MARS Ice Cream Social Hour. Guests can purchase a MARS Ice Cream product from any official Six Flags Ice Cream Day location within the park from 4-5 p.m. and receive a free Midway Game Voucher to use at Six Flags on July 15.

This day came about When President Ronald Reagan declared July to be National Ice Cream Month back in 1984. However, also said was that the third Thursday Sunday of the month would be National Ice Cream Day. Got it? Now get going.
And try to avoid the brain freeze. No scream needed with that.
