All the fun of a big park crammed into a small space. Add the beach and some nice weather and you get the best little park on the West Coast! I loved this place, even though I was there only 2 hours.
The Hurricane: Powerful little "wildcat-type" ride. Good tight turns and one really steep twisting drop that can catch you off guard make for a good little thrill.
Giant Dipper: My first 1920's coaster, WOW! I enjoyed this so much. How classic is this ride? Bells, whistles (literaly) and a great drop and twist in the dark make for a near perfect ride. Front seat was awesome with some good aritime pops. Not as powerful as a "modern" CCI woodie but amazing none the less.
Sea Dragon: Bumpy kiddie coaster that I can actually fit into!
I wanted to stay all day and eat until I got sick. Gilroy Garlic fries, caramel apples, you name it! I could have spebt $100 or more in the blink of an eye and loved every minute of it. Go here and leave your worries behind. What a slice out of the past, here for our enjoyment. Add a great old woodie, and you have a perfect combo!!
Gotta ride 'em all!

Soggy,if the SCBB Giant Dipper is your first 1920's coaster, does that mean you've never been on the Giant Dipper at Belmont? It's only an hour and half to two hours away. Gotta do it!
