Five out of five on the thrill scale
California's Great America is located in Santa Clara and is one of four theme parks found within the San Francisco Bay area. The theme park covers a range of themed areas including Planet Snoopy, KidZville and Boomerang Bay – an Australian themed water park complete with water slides, artificial waves and kid's playgrounds.
In addition to dedicated kid's areas, California's Great America is home to an impressive number of family rides and daring, adult-only rides. Measuring an impressive five out of five on the aggressive thrill scale, the Flight Deck rollercoaster travels at a speed of 80 miles per hour and includes two 270 degree after-burn turns, a 360 degree vertical look and a zero gravity roll. Sound like your idea of fun? More thrills can be found on The Grizzly, Tiki Twirl, Drop Tower and Xtreme Skyflyer.
