Welcome to a new feature called CGA Update.  These will be fairly short little updates highlighting my local amusement park, California’s Great America in Santa Clara, California.  This first update was taken on June 8, 2010 on my quick day time stop at at the park.

Since Boomerang Bay does not open until 11:00 am when the rest of the park...
