The only way is I55 north to 294 north. There is no other route.

You'll take Interstate 55 north to the tri-state tollway, 294. Take 294 north from there. This is a toll road so bring about 2.50 in change. That should cover you for the trip there and back.
Eventually, 294 will end and you'll merge with 94. Keep going and you'll eventually see the park (can't miss it) on the right. Go past the park to Grand Ave. (Rt. 132). Exit towards the park and follow the signs. Have $10 ready for parking.
Overall, the trip should take you around 5 hours or so depending on traffic and how fast you drive.
On the way back, watch for where 294 begins again and splits off from I-94. I know a lot of people who have missed this split and ended up heading on 94 towards downtown Chicago.

Maybe next time. This trip is just my wife and I. Leaving the kids at their grandmas. I wanted to go to Magic Moutain but she wanted to go Great America and I have very little vacition time. Thats where she went when she was little me growing up in Mansfield I went to Cedar Point. So my summer will be SFSTL this Tuesday and some other days I got a season pass, SFGA some time this summer.
