Behind the Scenes at Season Pass Summer Blast

California's Great America

California's Great America is the premier amusement park in California's Bay Area, offering endless fun and thrills with world-class rides, attractions and live entertainment.

Have you ever wondered about the process of setting up Season Pass Summer Blast? We will be taking a closer look and talk about the details that the team does behind the scenes.

There cannot be a movie without a 364-pound inflatable movie screen! The pictures above show our entertainment team laying out the base. As you can see, it is not a one-person job nor is it easy to move. Once the screen is laid out flat, the team can start having some fun by pressing the start button on the compressor. The screen takes about 5 minutes to inflate and during this period, the team is securing the screen with ropes to poles. Believe it or not—this entire process only takes around 15 minutes to set up completely.

In the meantime, the lifeguards help set up lounge chairs for perfectly viewing the movie, and the food department is making warm popcorn. We, of course, cannot forget the select waterpark attractions that are open during the event!

Don’t forget to get your towels, bathing suit, and a warm blanket—and come experience our next Season Pass Summer Blast for yourself. It’s amazing!
