Ride The Giant Dipper At Belmont Park On National Roller Coaster Day

National Roller Coaster Day is August 16th, and it’s the perfect excuse to plan a trip to San Diego’s historic beachfront amusement park, Belmont Park, for thrilling speeds and picturesque ocean views on the iconic Giant Dipper Roller Coaster.

Giant Dipper Roller Coaster

98 years of The Giant Dipper

From its wooden design to its spectacular views, the Giant Dipper is a San Diego landmark that takes you on a fun, ocean-view ride 75-feet up high with speeds up to 48mph, and has been the park’s main attraction for 98 years.

The wooden coaster is designated as a National Landmark, staying true to its original purpose; attracting both locals and travelers to San Diego’s beachfront boardwalk.

This San Diego icon was given a fresh look in the 90s after the community came together to repair the coaster. After $2 million and about three years of planning and building, the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster was restored, securing its status as an icon of the San Diego beachfront.
