Things to Do For Kids

Kids of all ages will find plenty of fun, from rides and live action shows to carnival games and special events. Little ones will love activities at Kidzville and Planet Snoopy, while older kids will want to test their mettle on the roller coasters and thrill rides.

Boomerang Bay

A whole day of splashing good fun awaits you at Great America’s water park. Grab a pal and head down the Tasmanian Typhoon water slide. Whoosh through the three-story Screamin’ Wombat tunnel. Ride the waves at the Great Barrier Reef or float along the lazy Castaway Creek. The little ones can splash and play at the Boomerang Lagoon or Kookaburra Cay while you soak up the sun at the Cabanna Village.


  • What are the best rides?

    Most visitors like the fast-paced Flight Deck ride the best, but be sure to check out the brand new Gold Striker, Northern California’s tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster.
  • What should I wear, and are there height minimums for rides?

    Wear comfortable clothes and shoes in the main park. Proper swimsuits are required at Boomerang Bay and sunscreen is highly recommended. Many rides do have height restrictions. Check your height at the Front Gate where you’ll receive a color-coded wristband to assist you with ride choices.
