Grand Entrance at Great America's Holiday Event

Grand Entrance

Location: Snow Flake Lake Plaza

Guests are greeted even before entering the park by a 40-foot LED Christmas tree that continually changes colors and patterns to the amazement of all.

Eight giant toy soldiers guard the entrance to WinterFest, providing a memorable photo opportunity and ensuring only good boys and girls are granted admission. Looking up to the right, a park icon has been readied for the holiday festival.

The North Pole (Star Tower) is lit from below and adorned with snowflakes that can be seen for miles, marking the location Santa needs to stop each night of WinterFest. Just beyond the front gate and giant toy soldiers, guests can take in the lighted palm trees that make a holiday statement that is completely California—all before patrons even enter the park.
