Giant Dipper Roller Coaster

The Giant Dipper Roller Coaster is located at Belmont Park in San Diego, California. This is a wooden roller coaster built in 1925 at the park in Mission Boulevard and is located just one mile west of Sea World. The park attractions are open seven days a week year round from 11am with parking available to visitors.

The coaster was very popular until the seventies when the park and its attractions was closed and fell into disrepair. With the threat of demolition looming the Giant Dipper was saved and reopened to the public in 1990. As a result of the popularity of the coaster a second train was introduced, but the ride is just one of two original coasters operating on the west coast.

To ride on the coaster visitors have to be at least 50 inches tall with a capacity of 24 riders at one time. The length of the ride is one minute and 45 seconds with the total length of 2,600 feet and a steepest drop of 73 feet. There are many other rides, bumper cars and water attractions at the park, and visitors will find several places to stop and purchase food and drink.
