Adventure City is an amusement park in Stanton, California, United States. Occupying an area of over 2 acres (0.81 ha), Adventure City is one of the smallest theme parks in California, and receives an average attendance of between 200,000 and 400,000 per year. The Coca-Cola Company is the park's only major sponsor. The park sits right on the edge of Anaheim and Stanton. The physical location of the park is in Stanton while the parking lot main entrance is in Anaheim.
The park opened in 1994 at a cost of $4 million, as an expansion of Hobby City, a nearby 6-acre (2.4 ha) collection of novelty shops and museums. The park was initially marketed for families with children, as an affordable alternative to other Southern California area theme parks such as Disneyland in nearby Anaheim, and Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park. Hobby City's original miniature railroad attraction, which opened in 1938 (25 years before the park opened), was extended and incorporated into the new park. A classic 1946 carousel was also part of the parks opening day attractions roster.
In 1999, the park purchased and refurbished a classic 1950s-era Wild Mouse style rollercoaster from an amusement company in Brisbane, Australia. The park named its new roller coaster Tree Top Racers, and expanded its boundaries westward into an adjacent former parking area to incorporate its new attraction. The ride was the park's first new attraction since opening, adding to its collection of classic rides. In 2012, Tree Top Racers was permanently closed.
In 2005, the park opened Drop Zone, its second new attraction since opening day, next to Tree Top Racers. In 2015, Rewind Racers, a $2 million family shuttle coaster opened on the former site of Tree Top Racers in time for the park's 20th anniversary. The ride is a first of its kind attraction in North America, built by Gerstlauer, a German ride manufacturer, and the largest single investment in the park's history.
