Overview
Hold on tight as you climb nine-stories and then plunge back down doing a 360 loop. That’s just one of the thrilling rides at California’s Great America. The park is also home to Northern California’s tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster. For the less daring, cool off at Boomerang Bay waterpark (open seasonally), or bring the kids to hang out with the PEANUTS at the gang at Snoopy World. With a variety of eateries, shops, and rides there is plenty to keep everyone entertained here all day. WinterFest is open select dates from November 23 to December 31.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Visit: California's Great America, 4701 Great America Pkwy, Santa Clara, CA 95050

    Located just 45 miles south of San Francisco, California’s Great America is the perfect place for family fun this summer!

    Discover seven themed areas, each presenting a different experience. Entering through Celebration Plaza with seven rides, you get a taste of Northern California. As you move through to County Fair and All American Corners, rides, shops and eating venues surround you! Planet Snoopy is home to the PEANUTS Gang and offers over fifteen kid-approved rides and hands-on adventures, but for the more adventurous, you can't go past Action Zone! There is also a fun water park - Boomerang Bay which is a great way to cool off on those warm summer afternoons (open seasonally).

    Enjoy heart-thumping thrills such as the new Patriot roller coaster which rises nine stories before dropping into a 360-degree loop and hairpin turns – all while riders' feet dangle just inches above the track! For a different kind of ride, try Gold Striker, the tallest and fastest wooden coaster in Northern California!

    Guests can indulge in scrumptious treats and gourmet eats, try their luck at classic games and watch exciting live entertainment all season long.

    Halloween Haunt - Experience the Bay Area's premier Halloween event, Halloween Haunt at California’s Great America. With multiple haunted mazes and attractions, secret skeleton key rooms, scare zones and live shows, Halloween Haunt is a frighteningly good time. Halloween Haunt runs select weekend nights from late September to early November.

    WinterFest - California’s Great America transforms into a winter wonderland full of enchantment and holiday cheer during WinterFest. On select evenings in November and December, guests become immersed in the season’s spirit with spectacular holiday lights and décor, world-class live entertainment, luscious treats and fanciful experiences throughout the park.

    I hadn’t been here since the Eighties. The place looks great!! So much is exactly the same. Had a great day and a half- did the water park only on Saturday, and then rides etc on Sunday. We did buy the Fast Lane pass- I am 100 percent sure this made our experience

    I'll admit that my first mistake was high expectations, given that I've already been to the big guys before (Disney, Universal, Six Flags, etc). What I didn't anticipate was very underwhelming roller coasters that were either too fast for the build, or too slow/short. I didn't
