Ashlie S. from Watsonville on yelp said “Went here for the first time today and brought 5 kids ages 2 1/2-16 and everyone had a blast!! Amber the manager, roped off a special space for the little ones so they wouldn’t get trampled, which as a mom, I totally appreciated! The other Staff members were friendly and on top of all safety issues. You can tell it is a well run
gym. My 7 year old loved the foam pits, which he got to flip into. It was even fun for the adults. Highly recommend this place for an afternoon of fun. Amber told us that on Fridays after 9 PM they have disco lights and a DJ and are open until midnight! We will definitely be doing future birthday parties here. Reasonably priced and so fun. :)”

- Raging Waters, San Jose: Opens for the season Sunday, May 22. Inside Lake Cunningham Regional Park. The city of San Jose charges a parking fee of $6 per car. Season pass special: $42.99 when you buy 2 or more passes (regularly $52.99). Single admission is $33.99. Juniors and seniors $22.99
My favorite ride in the whole park is the Dragon’s Den – you and your partner ride down on a double tube and after a downhill slide, you end up in a big bowl, where you go round and round, until it shoots you out the bottom. The kids love Shotgun Falls, the long green slide with the big drop at the bottom. For the kids needing a little less excitement, the Pirate’s Cove is a great place to splash and climb.
Safety is always a major concern at a water park, and I must say, the life guards and staff at the park did an admirable job of keeping things safe and under control. This did lead to long lines, but I felt a lot more comfortable letting my kids go off and enjoy the park without constant supervision. And all kids under 48″ are required to wear life jackets in the wave pool

History: Founded on November 29, 1777 as Pueblo de San Jose, California’s first civilian settlement and California’s first capital.
San Jose is the 10th largest city in the U.S., attracting professionals in the high tech industries. While one of the most compelling reasons to visit San Jose comes in the form of work-related business or attendance at a convention, San Jose provides a great vacation, as well.
Located 50 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles south of San Francisco in Santa Clara County, California’s third largest city enjoys a beautiful Silicon Valley landscape of rolling hills and friendly climate. Mild year-round temperatures and winter rains provide the perfect conditions for growing wine grapes. Surrounded by gently-rolling hills that include some of California’s oldest wineries, wine tasting and wine tours provide fun excursions to the nearby countryside.
In just a day or weekend you can get moving and never stop as you go from museum to museum, visit the downtown highlights, and shop at places such as Santana Row. Designed in the vein of Las Ramblas in Barcelona, the mixed residential commercial spaces feature street level shopping & dining along plazas that include some outdoor patio, a public courtyard where concerts and events are held on a greenbelt, and condominiums in second and third floor residences. For those living in San Jose, they appreciate the fact that it has ranked consistently between 1 and 10 in the top 10 safe cities in the U.S.
For vacations, there are some fun things to see and do, and the beauty of San Jose is that you can fly into the city’s San Jose Silicon Valley Airport, hop aboard the public transportation, and be downtown walking to everything.
