If you are interested in adrenaline attraction, this is the place. Close to the south bay in Santa Clara it is worth a visit.

I love coming to this place, it gets really busy very often so be prepared for lines. The roller coasters are worth it though.

This park has just enough mix of coasters, shows, snoopy kids area, midway, concession food to make it fun and enjoyable. The double decker merry-go round is fun. The coasters are thrilling. Plenty of rides for 42" and under! Also bring a swimsuit for the...More

Yes they do but you are very close to Marriotts. You can walk it in 10 mins.

it depends , I bought seasonal because we were going to be there for two days. Less expensive that way and also with seasonal pass you save 20% on everything inside Marriotts . Seniors is cheaper.
