History in the Making
The Giant Dipper, also known as the “Mission Beach Roller Coaster,” is a historical wooden roller coaster located in Belmont Park, a newly-renovated, one-of-a-kind historic site on Mission Beach in San Diego. The Giant Dipper was built in 1925 and is, along with its namesake at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, one of the only remaining roller coasters on the West Coast designed by noted roller coaster designers Frank Prior and Frederick Church. It’s one of the many fun rides of Belmont Park, a family-friendly spot for all ages.
