GR8 SK8 Family Ride at California's Great America

Park: Closed Waterpark: Closed View Hours

Take a ride atop Snoopy’s colorful giant skateboard! Grab a seat on the big board, buckle your seatbelt and hold on tight as you rise into the air and roll forward and backwards on the tipping track! This fun family attraction will give you the feeling of going off of the edge of the track—a perfect ride for young thrill seekers! The skateboard lifts into the air and the track slopes you forward as you skate down and stop just before you skate off the track! Be prepared because after you slide forward, the board tips backward, sending you heading backwards to the other end of the giant skateboard!

GR8 SK8 is just one of many favorite attractions in Planet Snoopy, which is the perfect place to enjoy family fun in the park. With kiddie rides, activities and attractions that bring the whimsy and silliness of Snoopy and the PEANUTS Gang to life, your kids will be happy all day long. In Planet Snoopy, families will find tons of fun to enjoy together.

Height Requirement: between 36” and 80”.
