    California's Great America - Review

    Review by: Webmaster | Last update: 04-Oct-2001 | Based on 2 visits between 09/96-09/01

    Visiting on Labor Day I was expecting large crowds at the park, but to my surprise the park was deserted until the afternoon, and although the park did not get too crowded, some of the lines were up to an hour long.

    The park is quite large but is easy to get around as it is flat and has large midway around the park. The park is not very well themed but is reasonably landscaped. It has a good variety of coasters but the park is seriously lacking a good woodie. PGA has a good selection of kids rides, but the water rides and flat rides are only standard.

    Nothing at the park with the exception of Top Gun stood out as outstanding, but nothing stood out as bad either. The park was clean, the staff were okay, and the food prices were normal for a theme park. All in all I had a good day at the park and I would say PGA is definitely worth a visit.

    Scoreboard
    Coasters:  6/10
    Dark Rides:  5/10
    Flat Rides:  7/10
    Kiddie Rides:  7/10
    Water Rides:  7/10
    Cleanliness:  9/10
    Food:  6/10
    Landscaping:  7/10
    Theming:  6/10
    Staff Friendliness:  7/10
    Staff Efficiency:  8/10

    Overall: 

    7/10
