    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 ...

    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)

    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.

    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!

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

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

    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!
