History in the Making

The San Diego Coaster Company operates all of the amusement rides inside Belmont Park including the Historic Giant Dipper Roller Coaster, built in 1925. Offerings include seaside amusement classics like the Tilt-a-Whirl, Bumper Cars, and Carousel alongside modern thrill rides like Octotron and Beach Blaster. Featuring the FlowRider™, a sheet wave technology which creates an endless wave for riders to both flowboard standing up and to bodyboard, as well as the only FlowBarrel in the United States. The FlowBarrel pumps 100,000 gallons of water per minute over a uniquely shaped ride surface creating an endless barreling wave.

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.
