    Amazing amusement park. Great roller coasters, big pizza and beautiful girls in the show at the center of the park. You can see Levi's Stadium from the most wild roller coaster hahaha.

    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.

    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)

    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!

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

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

    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.

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

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

    Overall an average theme park with an awkward patriotic theme, but Mass Effect New Earth is so awesome!!!

    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!

    Just be careful when buying season passes as they tend to change rates for season pass ticket owners guests daily without showing those rates online.

    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.
