A Gold Pass from California’s Great America, one of Northern California’s best family entertainment values, delivering four seasons of fun in six easy payments of just $15.50. The pass pays for itself in just two visits and the park is open from late March through December 30. That’s 10 months of fun in the California sun! So if you’re looking for things to in the Bay Area, look no further.
A Great America Gold Pass includes free parking for a $20 savings on each visit. In addition, Gold Passholders receive unlimited free admission for both Halloween Haunt and WinterFest!
WinterFest debuted in 2016 and quickly became the Bay Area’s newest, most immersive holiday tradition, with ice skating in front of the iconic Carousel Columbia, snow falling in Celebration Plaza, nine themed areas, live shows throughout, cookies with Mrs. Claus, holiday characters and performers roaming the park and much more. There will be additional surprises introduced in 2017, further ingraining WinterFest into the Bay Area’s holiday culture.
Halloween Haunt will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2017 and will be scarier than ever with its lineup of haunted mazes and attractions, frightful shows and strategically placed scare zones. Hundreds of monsters, fog and terrifying decor transform Great America into the Bay Area’s premier Halloween spectacular.
Great America’s outstanding thrill rides include the new Patriot – the park’s first floorless coaster where guests feet dangle inches above the track, Gold Striker - one of the world’s top 10 wooden coasters, Drop Tower – Northern California’s tallest ride, Flight Deck, Demon and more. Family rides include the iconic Carousel Columbia - the tallest double decker carousel anywhere, Rip Roaring Rapid and Mass Effect: New Earth – a 4D holographic journey with the highest resolution LED screen in the world.
The season pass perks don’t stop there! There is also the additional value of two parks for the price of one as Boomerang Bay Water Park is included daily from May 27-August 13 and subsequent weekends into September. No choosing to pay for a theme park or water park, or having to pay for both, as it’s two for one with a Great America Gold Pass, providing the perfect excuse for a family outing!
Seasonal festivals include Red, White & Brews, Taste of Orleans, July 4th weekend fireworks, The Great Pumpkin Fest, summer Friday night fireworks and cultural celebrations. And live entertainment options abound with aerial acrobat performances in Vertical Impact, wholesome fun with The Great American Game Show, the interactive PEANUTS Block Party and other unique performances for kids of all ages.
Don’t forget year-long admission to Gilroy Gardens (Lumination excluded), another $48 savings for each individual visit. Gilroy Gardens is a wonderful themed adventure for the younger set that includes kid rides, circus trees and majestic gardens and water attractions in a spectacular family setting.
The Great America Gold Pass delivers incredible entertainment throughout four seasons of fun is a truly amazing value for family days out.
