Great America Reviews & Ratings
A good summer day spent well! They have so many rides for all age groups. All the rides metion the thrill level, don't forget to check if you are scared to high thrill rides. Many food options are available too, pizzas, panda express, Subway, Ice creams, pop corns, pretzels and what not! The water park inside is fun too! I don't think a day is enough to enjoy everything. A must visit for kids and adults for a day full of fun!
In a town with honestly not that much to do nearby, Great America is a great place to just spend a day chilling out. The ride selection, however small, caters to pretty much every age group, and the staff are nice and actively try to help their visitors if needed. My only complaint is that Great America tends to be a bit greedy when it comes to optional purchases. For example, they charge literally the maximum amount they can get away with when it comes to food (like $15 for a box of orange chicken) and don’t allow any outside food or anything for people who just want to save a buck (or 50, if you get what I mean). Same goes for all the carnival games they have too. I don’t remember clearly, but I think it was $5 - $7 to play a game designed for the player to lose. I understand they need to make money, but I still don’t like how they actively try to almost literally make their guests throw their money away. All in all though, still a great place, would totally come more often if I had the chance.
An amazing place to go to celebrate a birthday!
Lame park. Nothing is open. Very ghetto inside
Great place for fun
