Gilroy Gardens is a great place to take the kids for a day of rides. Granted, the park is better for the younger set. It's very family friendly, and doesn't have the riff-raff element of some other large amusement parks. There are lots of rides for kids (40), water play, and the park-like setting is beautiful to wander through - with circus trees, lakes and the indoor greenhouse.
