My family loves going to theme parks during the summer. We love having fun under the sun, going on rides, playing games, and eating good food. I mean, who doesn’t, right?
The closest theme park to us is California’s Great America — and we always make sure we go there at least once a year. So when opportunity came up to visit last Saturday, we didn’t even think twice.
Located in Santa Clara, CA, the heart of Silicon Valley and at the edge of the San Francisco Bay, California’s Great America is the Bay Area’s best entertainment value. With more than 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions on 100 acres, California’s Great America truly has something for everyone.
Our first stop last Saturday was Planet Snoopy. It’s that area of the park with rides that cater to kids. They have a mild version of a roller coaster and a Drop Tower. They also have bump cars, space buggies, a carousel, and more. They also have a play area where kids can just run around, go down slides, and play in a giant construction zone.
I like spending a lot of time in Planet Snoopy because I can see how much fun the kids are having whenever they’re there.
We then headed over to the Picnic Grove for lunch. The Picnic Grove is an area of the park that company’s can book for when they do corporate events at the park. As you can see in the photo below, they have company names on the Picnic Grove arch. That Saturday, there were 3 companies having events at the park. The Picnic Grove is actually really big and can accommodate a huge number of people for events.
Public Relations Manager Roger Ross addressed the bloggers who were present at the event. He talked about the present attractions, highlighting the new ones, and shared what we can expect in the coming months. All I can say is, it looks like it’s going to be an exciting year for California’s Great America.
