    Take the Amtrak from Oakland. It's a perfect way to save a ton of stress and just enjoy the day AND the trip home.

    And lastly the most important thing is that the restaurants weren't that clean💔 but the good part that the rides are good 👍🏻

    .... There were in every game maybe two staff members maybe that what made them slow .. So we stand in the line for too long when it shouldn't be that much if there were more staff members

    The place is kinda dirty ... Specially the restrooms we went there and told the women who cleans to clean the bathroom and told us that it was clean and it wasn't... The staff are so slow ...

    Rides and people watching. Visit your chiropractor afterwards- these rides are no joke!

    Fast lane was totally worth it!

    Everything is great

    On a Saturday in spring or summer, buying the Fast Lane (if you can) is very much worth it!

    If two of you go on Centrifuge ride, make sure heavier person sits outward, else lighter person sitting outwards gets crushed due to weight (they don't warn you)

    My kids are small, we are limited on what we can do. Still had a blast. Wait to buy the dining season pass till next year. They don't let you use it now.

    Share the loaded funnel cake with a friend if you are enjoying it before a ride

    Dom · August 16, 2014
  • Dan A.

    Funnel cake for $10? Okay, a splurge -- but they don't tell you chocolate sauce and whipped cream are $2 each when they offer them. Tasty treat, but not $14 tasty.

    Aerial Ice Extreme is far better than standard amusement park fare. Make a point of seeing it.

    William Torrey · August 8, 2014

    Check out Flight Deck first!

    Beware of the groups of line cutters.

    The Season Pass pays for itself--especially if you get the gold pass and use the free parking! Definitely go to the ice skating show. It's fantastic!

    Missy Kirtley · June 27, 2014
  • Sai V.

    Vortex is least fun of all roller coasters here.

    Sai Vignesh · June 27, 2014
  • Meinani C.

    Chicken Tenders and fries were good from the main food court. Also, bring extra money because it's more expensive than Raging Waters.

    Meinani Carrara · June 4, 2014
  • Keith S.

    Get passes if you can, this place is expensive! And be prepared to wait a LONG time while at the food court on weekends.

    Keith Smith · June 4, 2014
  • Missy K.

    Go see the ice show. It's amazing.

    Missy Kirtley · May 31, 2014

    Gold Striker is the best wooden coaster I've ever been on. As smooth as Top Gun and as exciting as Stealth.

    Andrew Seroff · April 18, 2014
  • Acacia G.

    What is the best ride? GOLDSTRIKER!!!!!

    Acacia Glover · March 29, 2014
  • Acacia G.

    Goldstriker is worth the long wait! If I could suggest a place to sit, it would be the back, because you get more air time. More air time means more time to scream!

    I've come to this place so many times. It's usually pretty empty so lines go by fast, which is cool.

    Claudia Recinos · August 22, 2013

    Hate hate hate all the line jumpers!

    Gold striker is the best :-)

    It was fun! Not too crowded, some excellent rides, wait times were reasonable.

    This place gets crazy busy on the weekends

    Melissa 🌺 Grant · July 27, 2013

    Get here early to avoid the lines and heat.

    Gold Rush was off da Hook.....Fast and longer than most Roller Coasters......Get's your Heart Racing....and Boomerang Bay was Fun with the Kids.

    Eat sour poopers

    Ride the tidal wave! Bummer they took it out like ten years ago.

    Great place to have fun with family and friends weather your in the rides or enjoying a concert!

    Rob Von Bargen · July 11, 2013
  • Jill M.

    They have Panda Express & Subway! Finally, food that isn't completely gross! (Still redunkulously expensive, but at least it's editable.)

    Jill McElroy · June 18, 2013
  • Danielle B.

    The staff here has no sense of urgency and the rides tend to break down often. You'll probably get stuck in the air during part of your visit.

    Danielle Brown · May 27, 2013
  • John W.

    Gold pass doesn't give access to preferred parking anymore!

    John Wallace · May 27, 2013

    Don't miss the flight deck, drop tower, delirium and the demon. Amazing rides!

    Kalyan Narasimhan · April 15, 2013

    So many great thrill rollercoasters. Definitely ride Top gun, Drop Zone, and the Grizzly.

    Angel January · February 26, 2013

    If you like hot links, NEVER ORDER ONE FROM HERE.
