California’s Great America is #1 for Santa Clara Fun

California may have dozens of theme parks to explore, but there’s only one in the San Francisco Bay Area that stands out for its thrill rides, character meet-and-greets and water park adventures (among many other attractions): California’s Great America. Located less than an hour from San Francisco in Santa Clara, this theme park is perfect for people of all ages and interests. Here are the deets:

Tubes, Twists, and Everything In Between

Great America has it all: Peanuts® characters, coasters, thrill rides, family rides, kid rides, a waterpark, and special events throughout the year. What more could you ask for in a theme park? Besides delicious food and drink options. They have that, too, of course.

Two coasters, in particular, are standouts for the park, Gold Striker — where the gold rush meets an adrenaline rush — and RailBlazer — a revolutionary roller coaster. Standing at 108.2 feet high and traveling 53.7 miles per hour, Gold Striker is the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Northern California. And RailBlazer, the first of its kind on the West Coast, features a single rail track throughout, which means each rider straddles the rail, creating an extremely low center of gravity. What does that mean for the riders? Every move is amplified, and every turn and rotation are more dynamic than ever before on a coaster.

South Bay Shores: Water Adventures Galore

As if the park wasn’t fun enough already, Great America gave their water park a complete makeover recently. The new South Bay Shores (included with your regular park admission) now includes 10 different adventures that range from the relaxing and meandering tube ride on Rushin’ River to the six-story drop on the Pacific Surge water slide. Prefer to have fun from a distance instead? No problem! There are several cabanas available for rent throughout the water park.

Ticket and Upgrade Options

This isn’t a one-and-done kind of park. You’re going to want to come back again and again, especially if you’re living in the Santa Clara area. And to accommodate for their greatness, Great America offers several options when it comes to admission tickets and add-ons. Options include:

  • Single-day admission
  • Admission bundles
  • Season passes (with exclusive benefits and discounts)
  • Group tickets
  • Drink and dining deals
  • FunPix photo pass (unlimited digital photos all day or all season)
  • Cabana rentals

So what are you waiting for? The RailBlazer has a car with your name on it!
