More About Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

The wide beaches and splashable waves of Santa Cruz provide an inviting backdrop, and the colorful boardwalk with rides, games, and music makes resisting nearly impossible. Since debuting in 1907, the popular Santa Cruz Boardwalk has been a summertime staple for families. Today, the entire boardwalk is a designated California Historic Landmark—and two of its rides carry the prestigious title of National Historic Landmarks.

The Giant Dipper, a classic wooden rollercoaster first opened in 1924, remains the star attraction, delivering screams and thrills for decades. But it now shares the spotlight with modern marvels like the 125-foot Double Shot tower for adrenaline seekers. For tamer tastes, there's the meticulously restored 1911 Looff carousel with its hand-carved horses. Indoors, the massive arcade offers laser tag, mini-golf, skee-ball and endless video games, while dining runs from corn dogs to regional craft beers at Brews on the Beach.

Don't miss the panoramic views from the overhead Sky Glider funicular. Check events for fun activities like free beach movies and concerts. Nearby hotels like the retro Hotel Paradox or ocean view Sea & Sand Inn make longer stays easy.

Voted the best seaside amusement park in the world, the park offers over 40 rides and attractions that guests can enjoy daily during the summer and on weekends and select weekdays in the spring and fall. The park also features Winter Wonderland during the winter months and the largest arcade in the country, which is open daily year-round.

The inviting wide beach and splashable waves of Santa Cruz, coupled with the lively boardwalk featuring rides, games, and music, make it hard to resist a visit. This popular seaside amusement park has drawn families in summertime tradition since opening in 1907. Today, the entire Santa Cruz Boardwalk is a designated California Historic Landmark, with two of its rides attaining National Historic Landmark status—most notably the Giant Dipper wooden rollercoaster, which has thrilled and terrified riders since its debut in 1924.
