Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
History, culture, and a seaside amusement park all in one place ensures that there really is something for everyone. Since 1907, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk has been thrilling children and grown-ups alike with its infamous Giant Dipper roller coaster, circa 1924, along with its 1911 Looff Carousel, arcades, mini golf, bowling, shopping, outdoor concerts, and more. And all of this with the ocean right at your feet. The Boardwalk is the perfect place for a day trip with the kids, but seasonal park passes are available for the regulars.
I had alot of fun at the Boardwalk. The rides are very outdated. I felt the wristbands were way to expensive for what you get. I also played mini golf and laser tag with my kids. I think there is something for everyone. If you go out of season make sure the Boardwalk is functioning.
I have been going to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk since I was born. I love it. I also used to work there. The location is great. And you can walk the Boardwalk for free and only pay to go on the rides. The Giant Dipper is one of the best wood roller coaster around
We had a great time, the only thing is when you go after 5pm with a pepsi product you can get a band good for all rides until 11pm. we had to stand in line and the young kids that work the rides are so slow to move for example the bumper cars, they have a hard time counting how many cars they have and then how many people they let in so they are always counting to see how many more people they can let in and then walk as slow as they can to check the safety belts on every rider, it was so time consuming that we only had time to ride 6 rides instead of everything and this was a thursday nite. Plus we could only stay one nite at Santa Cruz, come on workers move a little faster it really won't hurt you and you make alot more people happier.
The Boardwalk has something for everyone. Two rides are historic landmarks. Great for children of ALL ages. Handicapped accessible. Very reasonable! We saw the Moscow Cirus in a free preview and the group was amazing. Every Friday night thye have bands.
I liked it becxase it was a very fun and safe environment. The rides are very exciting but 2 of the rides "the haunted castle" and "the fright walk" spooked even some of the teenagers who I was with. Besides those rides tit was great
THE BOARDWALK WAS VERY PACKED ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, BUT EARLY SUNDAY AND MONDAY IT THINS OUT. THE VALUE WAS OKAY, TAX IS REALLY HIGH. VERY CLEAN!!!! I JUST WISH THE BOARDWALK HAD MORE TO DO FOR SHORT PEOPLE, 50" TO 36". IT IS REALLY HARD TO KEEP A FAMILY ON RIDES TOGETHER WITH ADULTS TO BIG FOR KID RIDES AND KID TOO SMALL FOR ADULT RIDE. WE MUST HAVE RODE THE LOG RIDE 3 TIME AND THE DRAGON RIDE 5 TIME. THE FOOD IS FAIR KIND. I HAVE A FAMILY OF 4 2 BOY (5&7 YEARS) ONE IS TALL AND ONE IS SHORT. I AM ONLY 54" AT 30 YEARS OLD. MY HUSBAND IS TALL. ALL AND ALL IT WAS PRETTY FUN.
In a tuesday in june me and all the straight honor roll students earned a trip to the santa cruz beach boardwalk. When we got there I learned a dare devil in me that i never saw, same as my friend lauren. every ride that you go on you feel an adrenilin rush, and risk. One thing I did learn is that when you go you should always order day or seasonal passes, because I used to go with tickets and I olny got to go on 2 or 3 rides, which wasn't really fun. and if you get passes your day is worth time, money, and getting your hair severly curled.
earlier when i was littler I went to the warf too, its almost as fun as the rides and the every shop in there had something you wanted to buy. A day filled with rides and yummy foods along with awesome shops, I would recomend to everyone and I would spend as much money as i need.
I lived in Santa Cruz for the last six years and couldn't get enough. It's ONLY 64.95 for a year's pass with unlimited rides!!!! Plus you get a free one day pass for a friend... incredible value... The rides are great and it is right on an enormous beach... I was there every week... and pretty much every day I had off of work...
I loved the Boardwalk because it was so easy going.
Everyone was very friendly and nice.
There are so many things to do, you can't get bored for a week!
And of course the atmosphere was excellent.
How can you go wrong with a place that's been here for a hundred years. They must be doing something right!
