California's Great America Seasons of Fun

Coming in 2021

Mark your calendars for seasons of AMAZING with Seasons of Fun at California’s Great America! From the first roller coaster screams in spring to the crooning of "Auld Lang Syne" on New Year's Eve, Great America always serves up fantastic things to do in the Bay Area, right by San Jose! What's more, sprinkled in throughout the year are concerts, live shows, food and drink events, and one-of-a-kind Silicon Valley events to enjoy. With new AMAZING always popping up, no two visits to our California theme park are alike. Come visit us during our Seasons of Fun with a Gold Season Pass!


Spring into the season at California's Great America! Smile, laugh and scream through the park's world-class lineup of rides and attractions, including the West Coast's only single-rail roller coaster, RailBlazer, and eight more exhilarating roller coasters. Bring the whole family, and spend an afternoon in Planet Snoopy--where you'll find more than a dozen family-friendly rides. Or enjoy a leisurely day playing classic games, savoring fully loaded funnel cakes, and seeing Snoopy and the rest of the PEANUTS gang!


Summer is full-on AMAZING all day and into the night. In early summer, catch the first waves at South Bay Shores waterpark—the only waterpark inside an amusement park in California! Slide down Pacific Surge, featuring four water slides with a nearly-vertical freefall, or lounge in the kid-friendly Tide Pool. Celebrate classic amusement park fun at events like a hometown beer and BBQ festival with larger-than-life yard games and a fireworks nightcap. Kick back with special summer events that offer food, music and fun at Northern California’s best amusement park.


From September through the end of October, it's all things fall! The Great Pumpkin Fest entertains little ghosts, goblins and their families all day long with games and Halloween activities for kids with a just speck of spooky. At night, monsters take over Great America during Halloween Haunt, where all your worst fears are crammed into our haunted mazes and attractions. Then, shake it off and come back in November for more fall fun, where you can celebrate the season with festive décor, thrilling rides, classic games and seasonal treats.


Winter's chill brings the warmth of beloved family traditions at California's Great America. When November winds down, get into the Christmas spirit at WinterFest, the Bay Area's most immersive holiday attraction. A sleigh-full of fun awaits with fanciful experiences, extravagant holiday décor, gourmet treats and so much more. On December 31, bid a fond farewell to last year and a hearty hello to the new year at New Year's Eve at WinterFest, one of the region's largest family New Year’s Eve events.
