Things to do at Great America

Looking for something fun to do in the Santa Clara area to make your summer one to remember? Great America has you covered! Stop by to take a ride on our newest coaster, RailBlazer, the first single rail steel coaster on the West Coast. Not only does Great America offer thrill rides and shows for every age, it also has the area’s most entertaining summer festivals including Red, White & Brews and Taste of Orleans!

Things to do at Boomerang Bay

Here in the Bay Area, the temperature during the summer really heats up! Boomerang Bay is the perfect thing to do in the Bay Area to escape the blazing hot heat. Nothing beats being in the water during the summer—except for the fact that admission to Boomerang Bay is also included in your Great America ticket! Here, it’s two parks for one price. Whether you’re catching waves in the Great Barrier Reef wave pool or relaxing in the Castaway Creek lazy river, Boomerang Bay has something fun for everyone to do in Santa Clara! Ride at Great America and slide at Boomerang Bay for a nice refreshing cool down!

Things to do at Halloween Haunt

Summer has ended, and now you’re wondering what you’re going to do for the fall season. Shortly after summer wraps up, Great America is transformed into Halloween Haunt, the Bay Area’s premier Halloween event featuring haunted mazes, skeleton key rooms, live shows, scare zones and hundreds of monsters at every turn. Don’t fear--we have a not-so-scary Halloween event for our younger guests during the day: The Great Pumpkin Fest. It’s the perfect fall activity to do in the Bay Area!

Things to do at Winterfest

As fall comes to a close and the most wonderful time of the year rolls around, holiday cheer is brought to Great America! If you’re looking for a fun thing to do during the holidays in the Santa Clara area, you won’t find a shortage of options going into the winter season with Winterfest. Great America is magically transformed into a winter wonderland and holiday festival including spectacular live holiday shows, Santa’s workshop and Mrs Claus’ kitchen and more than 25 rides and attractions!
