Off the top of my head, Kennywood. It's probably about 5 hours away from the 275 loop, if I had to guess. Not sure what your ideal timeframe is, though--Kennywood's only open 6pm-midnight on Friday and Saturday and 6pm-11pm on Sunday, all of which is for their Halloween event. I've never been, but I've heard good enough things. The rides themselves there are great, though!


There's also Camden Park, which has similar hours but is probably closer.

It should be noted that getting to SFGAm could take much longer than that, depending on traffic around Chicago. Also note that there are 4 toll plazas in each direction. If you don't have an EZPass transponder, you can still drive through EZPass lanes (Chicago Skyway & Indiana Toll Road excluded), write down the toll plaza numbers, and pay missed tolls online within 7 days without penalty.

Early Saturday morning was a good time to make the drive; traffic on 294 (speed limit 55-60) was moving at ~80.
