We went to the Haunt at Great America a few years ago and had a great time. The lines were fairly short and we could walk on to most of the mazes with only a 5-10 minute wait. We decided to try it again this...More

A few weeks ago, my friend and I went to the Halloween haunt here, it was fun. The scare zones could have been better but overall I would highly recommend Great America! :)

Yes you should however we travel very light so I never bring more than a small waist pack with me. There is a water park so you can store bags in lockers there or larger bags at the front.

California's Great America Theme to San Francisco at 1am (5 Replies)

Would they be cheaper and available/safe at that time of night (I am travelling with my...More
