SANTA CLARA, CA
Signs throughout California’s Great America promise that “amazing is coming.”
On Thursday morning, officials unveiled exactly what they mean by that pledge as they announced plans for a new water park to open in summer 2020 at the Santa Clara theme park.
Meet South Bay Shores, which will take the spot — and then some — of the incredibly popular Boomerang Bay.
“South Bay Shores represents the newest phase of a multi-year revitalization of California’s Great America,” said Manny Gonzalez, the park’s vice president and general manager.
This won’t just be a facelift to the old Boomerang Bay Area. Instead, the area will be “completely transformed” and increase in size from from 10.5 to 15 acres, said Jason Soyster, the park’s director of marketing and sales. Also, the number of attractions will increase from 10 to 18.
