I had the worse time ever.we took my granddaughter to the Haunt nite .we only got to get on two rides.they closed the main rides at 11:00 and they were open til 12:00.every thing is way over priced.It took over 45min for the two rids we did go on.I would not recommend Great America to any one.And they have the nerve to call it Great America.you should feel bad for what u charge to get in.There are so many kids that cant afford to go there,and would love to go just once.Bad place.i dont rate it but i have to in order to post this.

I have heard about California'...

I have heard about California's Great America many different times, but never went. I found a great deal online at discounts4fun.com. Tickets were only $35 and can be purchased with promo code FUN1. I got tickets for me and my family and we went and had a blast! We will definitely be going again and using the great discounts offered at discounts4fun!

Fun times

We used to have fun times here with my brothers and sisters back when we were little. I haven't been to this place in a while but I remember having the best times with the rides and food!

Great America's Invertigo is a wonderful ride!

Great America is a fun place to go, whether you are a Dad with kids (like me, I have a daughter and 2 sons) or someone who simply enjoys roller coasters, beautiful gardens, and quality time with family and friends. We often buy a season pass (this year I bought a gold pass for $15 more, so I could also go to Gilroy Gardens anytime I want) since it is about the same cost as 2 or 3 day passes, even when bought at a discount. Invertigo is my favorite roller coaster here, with Flight Deck (formerly Top Gun) a close second, and Delirium is my favorite ride. Both have some interesting action. However, if I lived closer to Vallejo, I'd probably buy a membership every year to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. They have two rides or three rides Medusa, Kong and Grizzly which are better than Invertigo and Top Gun. Both parks, as well as Gilroy Gardens, have a lot to see and enjoy for children of all ages, as well. I hope you take time to see and experience all three parks, then tell me what you think.

It's not Disneyland

Well, we shouldn't expect any other theme park to BE Disneyland; but let's admit, once you've been to D. Land everything else pales in comparison. As far as theme parks go, this one is good. There are rides here that give thrillseekers a run for their money, but mostly their rides are short and mild. If you can bring your own food, do so. We all know that food is overpriced in these theme parks, but does it have to taste like a typical school lunch? Four small sized chicken pieces with a ton of fries for $8.00? You'd be a pauper with a heart attack. See for yourself. Pay the admission price and then let loose.

Not that great anymore

Great America, known to locals as Mariotts, since that's who originally owned the park, used to be a theme park. It used to have ""themed"" areas that celebrated parts of American culture, such as the Yukon, and the French Quarter New Orelans style. But since Paramount took over in the mid-90's, the park has transformed into a movie theme, but it doesn't work. The rides seem to be open only when they want to be, everything is over-priced, and the best old rides they used to have are now gone. And for a park that is themed around movies, the Imax theater(the original Imax I might add) is closed down?! Makes no sense. It used to be great, but not anymore.

Worst of all Paramount Parks?

They say they're a family park, but the majority of people you see there are teenagers trying to escape their parents during the summer. They have done a poor job marketing themselves because they are too stubborn to realize who the majority of their customers are. This is the only park I know of to add a new ride and take it down about 3 years later to add a very lame ""water park"" that has about 3 rides. Security is way lax, prices are too high, and most of the people working their hate the job. Magic Mountain is a way better deal, being about 6 times the size for close to the same price. Also, too many places are closed or minimally operated during slow days, which is pretty much any weekday. CLOSES WAY TOO EARLY!
