i love going to this kind of places. where there is lots of roller coasters to ride and food to eat. it is also a cool place to work especially when you are in high school so you can earn cash and meet other people.

Honesty a good amusement park. I have been to many but I feel like this was a great one to go to because they have a lot of different rides and it is different from the typical fairs which are all the same.

We visited the park in August high heat and it was terrible (the weather). It was very nice that they offered a water play zone and sold everything you might need if you were unprepared like we were. The park didn't have many rides we could ride as a family, but my older son did enjoy a handful of rides... More

One thing to be noted is it is open to public only in Summer. And I felt the big rides are made from wood, not sure how long it will stand :) But it has some fun rides and guarantees equal fun to kids as well. Had been there as part of a corporate event, not sure if it was... More

I enjoyed it totally. One of its kind , it has the best rides in the world and so much to visit and see under one roof. Though the ticket is costly but there is lot of things to do inside Great America ,. A must visit in Santa Clara.

We won 2 tix to the Halloween pumpkin fest so my parents in law took our 2.5 yo. She had fun but man if we had paid full price ($43 online, $65 on the spot) we would have been pissed!!!

I went here in October and had an amazing time. First, the staff were incredibly helpful when me and my friend (due to a car mix up) rocked up with suitcases that we just could not have lugged around all day. They seemed to really want us to have a great day, and because of their help, we did! Off... More

Amusement park with more than enough thrill rides. There is a water park as well though you have to make sure that you never take your eyes off your children. Fireworks during select weekends.

We went the day before Labor Day and it was no crowded at all. My daughter and I got wrist bands and was able to ride all the rides 4 times. We sat in the front whenever we wanted and also rode in the back to get that experience also. Food was a little expensive but its hard to complain... More
