"Fun area to walk around before you head to the beach"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 11, 2019 NEW
This is a cute little theme park on the beach and a lot less crazy busy than Santa Monica. There are a bunch of shops, some food stalls, and rides and public bathrooms. You can walk right onto the beach from here or pick up a scooter to ride through the town.

I've been to Belmont Park on a regular basis for 30 years. It never gets old. During the summer it can, of course, get crazy busy and yet that's part of the fun!

Wanted to ride the wooden roller coaster and it was great fun. The fair is well kept and has lots to keep the whole family entertained and well fed and watered! The beach is beautiful, with lovely soft, golden sand. We spent a couple of fun hours here.

"Family fun on the Giant Dipper coaster "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 30, 2019 NEW
One of San Diego's most popular attractions is the historic Giant Dipper Rollercoaster at Belmont Park. It has been a waterfront icon for 94 years in the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This review will focus on the classic California coaster. Belmont Park was developed by sugar magnate John D. Spreckels. The ride was added to the park to provide recreation and amusement. Also a savvy business move as an enticement to help Spreckels sell land in Mission Beach, CA. The wooden roller coaster officially opened to the public on July 4, 1925 in the 33-acre Mission Beach Amusement Center, now known as Belmont Park. It took a mere 47 days to construct. The coaster cost $150,000 to build, however it took a whopping 2 million to restore after being derelict throughout the early 80s. It offers a 65 foot drop and top speed of 55 mph that will have your bottom pop out of the seat. Its interesting to note the Giant Dipper is one of only two remaining antique wooden roller coasters in California! It is the 7th oldest in the U.S. still in operation. The Dipper was designated #1044 National Landmark in 1978. Today, the Giant Dipper is not just a National and State Historic Landmark. The amusement ride is embedded in coaster lore and local beach culture. It's an iconic part of San Diego's very fabric. The Giant Dipper is fully restored and enjoying its golden years. I can't wait to return with the family. Thanks to SD resident SJ for the background for the review.
