Delta Flyer/Eagle's Flight

Take a rest break from the coasters and catch a flight that soars right over Great America on a joyful ride! This ride is the best way to get from here to there while enjoying a great view of California's Great America from the air! It’s the perfect joyride to take in the park. You’ll travel in your very own personal gondola at a peaceful pace from the front of the park all the way to the back or from the back to the front.

Begin your flight journey on Delta Flyer near Flight Deck and end at Eagles Flight near Psycho Mouse. Or hop on in reverse and travel from next to Psycho Mouse back up to Orleans Place!

On this epic journey, riders are leisurely lifted high in the sky over the entire park and are treated to an amazing 360-degree view of Great America, nearby Levi’s Stadium and all of Santa Clara. Sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking views of Silicon Valley. The park-crossing gondola is original to Great America from its opening in 1976.

Height Requirement:  48” minimum or be accompanied by a supervising companion.
