At Cedar Fair, the safety and well-being of our guests and associates are always our top priorities.   

As we continue to follow regional and national health directives related to COVID-19, we want to provide the latest update regarding our park schedule. Currently, California’s Great America is temporarily closed. It is our hope to open the park as soon as it is safe to do so. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our communities.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our spring educational programming including Dance Days, and Physics, Science and Math Days. For those having already purchased tickets, we have two options available for you:

1. We have extended the validity dates for prepaid spring educational programming tickets through Labor Day, September 7, 2020. There is no action needed on your part; you may simply distribute the tickets to your students and their registered chaperones.

2. For schools that need refunds on their spring educational programming tickets, please complete the Student and Youth Programs refund request form, and we will process your request as quickly as possible.

We appreciate your organization's continued support of our park and our associates during this ever-evolving situation. Your loyalty is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you soon.

See our blog post for educational activity ideas for teachers and parents that let kids have some Great America fun at home!


When you participate in our educational field trips, California's Great America becomes your own interactive, state-of-the-art classroom (and ultimate playground for after class). We’ve worked with leading educators and subject-matter experts to offer the best in content and impact for learning at all grades and levels.

We make learning FUN for your students as they experience our Physics, Science, Math Days youth program with in park student activities that coincide with state approved curriculum available for each park location. We offer fun & affordable packages that will thrill your entire group!

Do your kids have a talent? Showcase it at one of our performance opportunities. Students can take center stage at our unique performing venues to a ready-made audience of park guests.

What’s more, mealtime for your group can be a breeze when you select our all-inclusive catering services.
