Their picnic area boasts expansive lawn areas for traditional games, volleyball, horseshoes and tetherball; just the right facilities to host groups as intimate as 50 or larger groups of 10,000 plus. Eat your fill and then go for a thrill! For details, refer to the Great America contact below.

Family Days & Employee Appreciation Days for Hacienda Companies     Family Days (also known as Employee Appreciation Days) are the least expensive way for your employees to enjoy the park. It is the largest discount your company can obtain off the general admission ticket price.  Family Days can be for one full day or for just a specific time period of designated days, reserved specifically for your employees. Select your date, weekend, or time frame for your event, and Great America will help organize the rest!  Great America will also provide promotional posters, flyers, and personalized tickets for your convenience.
