Summertime is all about fun in Silicon Valley, and nothing tops a visit to California's Great America. Located just 15 minutes from our hotel, you can spend the perfect summer day riding exciting roller coasters, enjoying live entertainment, and treating your family to an unforgettable adventure.
Climb aboard a classic wooden roller coaster when you ride The Grizzly or soar to new speeds on Gold Striker, the tallest coaster in Northern California. For even more thrills, don't miss the Xtreme Skyflyer, Vortex, and Tiki Twirl. Kids will love water rides like Loggers Run and Whitewater Falls. Planet Snoopy is a special experience where you can enjoy rides for kids and interact with all of your favorite Peanuts characters like Charlie Brown, Lucy, and of course, Snoopy! If you want to get wet and wild, check out Boomerang Bay water park with water slides and relaxing lagoons.
When you get hungry, you have over a dozen tasty options to choose from. Whether you want an iced latte from Starbucks or a great lunch with pizza, chicken tenders, or burgers, Great America has something for everyone. After your meal, check out live entertainment around the park from karaoke performances to "40 Season of Summer," a musical number highlighting America's greatest memories. And stick around for special events at Great America like fireworks displays and Bring-A-Friend day which offers excellent discounts on Fridays for pass holders.
