What is there to do?

Let us guess: you're a thrill seeker, looking for those amazing rides that will get your heart racing? No, wait, you're just a little adventurer looking for some sweet and entertaining kiddie rides that are perfect for your age? No, hang on, you're looking for an amazing water park with lots of fun attractions where you can slide and splash all day? Are we close?

Well, whoever you are, you can be sure that there is something for you at California's Great America - perfect for YOUR family's great adventure!

You're a family, so let's start with those family rides! You can drive back in time on the Oldfield Speedway, nothing like an antique roadster to get your day started! Maybe it's the classic bumper cars that take your fancy, or that old fashioned carousel experience on the world's tallest double decker carousel! What an experience!

Looking for something a bit....watery? Why didn't you say so! Boomerang Bay Water Park has a TON of water attractions, from the longest lazy river in the area, a twisty typhoon slide to the super fun kiddie areas just for the little ones!

What's that? You're more into the thrill rides? Let's go! There is that classic thrilling wooden coaster, or the incredible Flight Deck where you are suspended on a 360 degree vertical loop, and yes, it goes 50 miles per hour! There are twirls, spins, loops, and free fall drops galore at Calfornia's Great America - what will you be picking first! 

To break up your day, there is live entertainment throughout the day in various locations, so when you arrive, be sure to check what's on so you can plan your rides around it!
