Six Flags Great America in Gurnee is calling off its plans to build a new roller coaster.ABC7 news partner the Daily Herald reports that the theme park has pulled a petition seeking to construct a 150-foot ride.

The plan went through the zoning board of appeals and was sent to the village board for a final vote.

However, a spokesperson for the theme park says any notion that the coaster would be built was premature.
