Rides, Animals, Action!
In Northern California, theme-park aficionados should go to Six Flags Marine World (707.643.6722; www.sixflags.com), where the youngest guests can enjoy a buffet and show with Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tune pals. Rides are perfect for little kids and the enclosed area is ideal for families looking for an amusement-park experience without the over-the-top thrill rides. The park is in Vallejo, about 30 miles north of San Francisco along I-80.
Paramount's Great America (408.988.1776; www.pgathrills.com) in Santa Clara has introduced Survivor: The Ride, a spinning coaster based on the hit reality show. The Funtastic World of Hanna Barbera is a motion ride where riders are transported into the classic world of Scooby Doo, the Jetsons, and Yogi Bear. This 100-acre park is located off of US 101, about 45 miles south of San Francisco.
