Meet the Sullivans: Great Fun at Great America!

Great Fun at Great America!

If you grew up in the Bay Area there is no doubt you've been to Great America! As a teenager it was THE place to go in the summer, and I begged my parents to buy me a season pass almost every year. Fast forward 20 years and now I'm taking my own children there for some good family fun!

Last month we were invited by Great America to visit the park and attend a parent blogger event to hear all about the fun and exciting things that will be happening at Great America in the coming months and years!

We had so much fun exploring the park during our visit! One of our favorite spots was Planet Snoopy, because there were so many fun things for Owen to do and see there.

Owen loves roller coasters, but he's not usually tall enough to ride them, so I was excited to see they had a kid roller coaster that he could go on. 

Keith was excited to check out their newest attraction, Mass Effect: New Earth, a 4D holographic experience that has received rave reviews from guests and the tech world alike! Owen was just under the height requirement, so only Keith got to ride, but he said it was really fun and way different from anything else in the park!

Owen's favorite place in the park was Boomerang Bay Water Park, which is also quite possibly the BEST spot in the park to go if you want to cool of and relax a bit! We met up with some friends and let the kids run around, play and splash!

At the blogger lunch they told us all about lots of the fun things in store for Great America, like starting this year Great American will begin hosting Winter Fest, a new winter must see in the Bay Area. They're going o have a 60 foot tree with nightly tree lighting ceremonies, Santa's workshop, live reindeer, baking cookies with Mrs. Claus, and SNOW! That's just a small taste of all the exciting things in the works at Great America!

Here area a few photos of what Winter Fest will look like:

We are SO excited to check it out this year!
