Day 2 in California. It was 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit (or 19 degrees Celsius) in Santa Clara, California. It was too chilly, too windy outside. I pulled up my thick comforter and snuggled back in my warm bed. I decided to sleep the day away in my comfortable cozy bed. Time to catch up on some precious Zzzzzzzzs before I undergo more San Fo activities.

It was September 16th. September 16th rang a bell. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. What was so darn special with September 16th? Zzzzzzzzz. Oh my Mai, wake up! Eyes wide open! Â It’s the big event. THE EVENT. The One Kampamilya Go Event in California’s Great America Theme Park. The main reason for ABS CBN and The Filipino Channel’s artists and staff enduring 13 hours of flight time from Manila to San Fo. This event is the primary reason for my newfound friends’ San Fo trip.
It’s the official date of the One Kapmilya Go Event in Santa Clara, California – – in California’s Great America. This One Kapamilya Go Event sold out 11,000 tickets!
California’s Great America Parkway is an amusement park located in Santa Clara, California. It is one of four major amusement parks operating around the San Francisco Bay Area.
For guests who need to satisfy their need for speed and adventure, there are “thrill rides” in the park composed of Flight Deck, The Grizzly, FireFall, Tiki Twirl, Delirium, Demon, Drop Tower, Psycho Mouse, Vortex, Xtreme Flyer, and HMB Endeavor. Note that these rides are not for the faint hearted.
If slower speeds and less shrieks and thrills are preferred, there are FAMILY RIDES. Choose from the Carousel Columbia, Celebration Swings, Rip Roaring Rapids, Whitewater Falls, Barney Oldfield Speedway, and Woodstock Express.
Snoopy with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and Sally, welcome kids of all ages in the Peanuts-themed zone of the park. The zone includes Woodstock Express, PEANUTS Pirates, Sally’s Love Buggies, Snoopy’s Splash Dance, and The Pumpkin Patch.
KidZville is a big, busy town built just for kids. The 18 rides can be enjoyed by both parent and child. Rides include Classic Cars, Fender Bender 500, Ghost Chase, Junior Jump Club, Kidsville Pet Shop, KidZair, KidZConstruction, Snail Races, Swing Swing Swing, Taxi Jam, amongst many others.
California’s Great America is the only amusement park in northern California that has a water park.
Events are also usually held in one of the theaters.
Dads can play the remote-controlled boats while waiting for their kids. Kids can try to win a prize or two by playing some parlor games too.
So many rides to choose from catering to kids of all ages. Dare to ride them all, with eyes wide open at California’s Great America.
