California's Great America, an Entertainment Staple Expected to Shut Down Within 10 Years
California’s Great America, a Bay Area amusement park that has entertained families for nearly five decades, will be closing its gates permanently in the near future.
Cedar Fair, owner and operator of the park, announced on Monday that it has sold the land to Bay Area real estate developer Prologis for $310 million. The 112-acre property is nestled between Route 237 and Highway 101, directly next door to Levi's Stadium, and has its own dedicated light-rail stop. The deal stipulates that the park will close sometime within the next 11 years, although the exact timing has not been announced.
