Transcript "MARRIOTT'S GREAT AMERICA" will be introduced during fiscal 1976—when the nation's Bicentennial celebration begins. After five years of planning, design and construction, two GREAT AMERICA theme parks open in the spring. One is in Santa Clara, California, 40 miles south of San Francisco in the thriving Lower Bay region. The other is in Gurnee, Illinois, mid-way between Chicago and Milwaukee. The parks feature a variety of rides, live entertainment, animated shows, shops, crafts and restaurants—themed in an 10 American-heritage motif and set amid extensive landscaping, water, and open spaces. Five separate eras of American life long passed will be the distinctive elements of both parks: • Yankee Harbor • Yukon Territory • The Great Midwest Livestock Exposition and County Fair • Hometown Square • Orleans Place The park in California opens on weekends starting March 20, 1976, daily starting the end of May, and again on weekends in the fall—for an operating season of 142 days. The Illinois park opens full- time May 29, and on fall weekends in '76. Its regular season in '77, when it also opens for spring weekends, will be 119 days. A single admission price will be charged at the gate. All rides and shows inside will be free. There will, of course, be charges at restaurants and shops. Regional in nature, these parks will draw primarily from a radius of 100 miles—close enough for families to get to the park, spend the day, and return home at night. This radius at Santa Clara takes in 7 million people ... at Gurnee, 12 million. During fiscal 1975, construction moved ahead full-speed on both parks. At year end, guided by critical path time-tables, development was on schedule. Substantial completion of management staffing at Washington headquarters and at both park sites also was accomplished in '75. All senior positions in operations, marketing, merchandising and other functions are filled, mostly by experienced personnel from the industry. Key
