California’s Great America has been busy this offseason, and whenever it reopens from its pandemic-induced closure, guests will notice a spruced-up park, carrying the momentum of the previous years’ work....
Free performances of Cirque Magnifique continue daily at the Boardwalk through August 20th. Two free shows are offered daily. Monday through Thursday, the shows are at noon and 3:00 PM. On Sundays, the shows are at noon and 6:00 PM. For more on Cirque Magnifique, see: http://www.beachboardwalk.com/cirque/
