A local radio show made Belmont Park's roller-coaster world famous. Hoping to win a new car, the show fans spent several consecutive hours riding the coaster. Do not miss it, but try not to get carried away as you ride one of the oldest all-wood coasters still in operation. For those not into thrills that include fast paced turns and long freefalling drops, the oceanfront park also has an indoor swimming pool, a new wave-generation pool, and a family play-land, along with several shops and restaurants. It opens daily at 11a.
We visited San Diego and planned to visit Belmont Park during the week that we visited. We showed up at 6PM ready to eat dinner and enjoy the rides and the place was shut down. We asked a security guard what happened and he said the park was dead so closed down, even though the hours shown on their website showed them closing hours later. Even the restaurant kitchens were closed so we couldn't even eat. The bars were still open, however, which accommodated the drunks and bums that populate this area. Not exactly my idea of a family friendly place. I am relieved we didn't buy our $25/per person wristbands online otherwise we would have been S.O.L. So beware if you are visiting from out of town, their hours "are subject to change" despite the hours they have posted on their web page.
This locale is fantastic for breakfast,lunch or dinner. Breakfast at the North Shore Cafe is the best on the boardwalk. If the wind is up you can close it off but still enjoy the view with the see through shade! Also if it's chlly there are heaters on the ceilings that make it just right.
If you're into the WAVE and the boardwalk just walk around the corner and it's all right there.
This venue has a little something for everyone!You get the beach experience without being at the beach!
Wave House looks inspired by California�s legendary surf history, yet it showcases the futuristic Bruticus Maximus simulated surfing attraction -- this beast uses 800 horsepower to create a perfect 10� barreling wave, upon which 'flowboarders' accomplish maneuvers unimaginable on an ocean wave.
Simultaneously, Wave House is San Diego�s premiere venue for a �killer� beach party. Located on the boardwalk in the heart of Mission Beach, Wave House epitomizes the southern California beach lifestyle -- surfing, sand, music, sunshine, sunsets, beach barbeque,al fresco dining, fire rings, hammocks, tropical palms, meandering boardwalks wave shows,and spirits overlooking the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
As ground zero for the trendsetting California beach lifestyle, Wave House is the place to experience the true �taste� of San Diego.
Go for the coaster! The Wave House swimming pool & the Giant Dipper roller coaster were both built in the same era (early 20's?) & have a lot of history behind them. The rest of the amusement park is standard faire - but enough to keep the kids occupied for a while.
The coaster is a creaky, old wooden affair with updated cars (for safety). It's great! It's been showcased on several tv programs that talked about classic coasters & their enthusiasts.
