Opening Day at Great America Park in Santa Clara
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- It is opening day for Great America in Santa Clara and the park is kicking off the season with several events for the Easter weekend.
The park will be raffling off seats to be among the first to ride its new $10 million "Gold Striker" coaster. It's still under construction, but it is set to open May 1. Great America says it'll be the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in the area.
For people in the North Bay, Vallejo's Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is also open daily through Spring Break.
