California’s Great America, the Bay Area’s premier entertainment destination, launches its 2013 season on March 29 and will open daily beginning Memorial Day weekend.
Highlighting the 2013 campaign will be Gold Striker, Northern California’s tallest and fastest wooden coaster. Gold Striker will feature a wooden coaster record 174-foot initial descent tunnel that will provide riders a true gold mine experience, but at speeds nearing 54 miles per hour. Gold Striker joins Great America’s mainstay thrill rides, including Flight Deck, Demon, Flight Deck and Tiki Twirl.
Boomerang Bay waterpark, included with park admission, provides wet and wild adventure rides, along with relaxing activities to simply soak up the sun. The entire family will enjoy the lovable PEANUTS(r) Gang, the incredible KidZville and entertaining shows featuring Broadway hits and pop favorites.
Fireworks will again blast off on select nights, with special holiday shows on May 26, July 5-6 and September 1. Also, Halloween Haunt returns scarier than ever in September and October. For more information visit www.cagreatamerica.com.
