Nostalgic Rides

The Giant Dipper, a classic roller coaster in Sand Diego's Belmont Park, always delivers a great thrill, without the bone-crunching lurches and jerks of other similar coasters, less well-maintained. A local conservancy cares for this classic wood ride, which clatters and flexes happily, revealing views of the surrounding area from all the high points. No visit to San Diego is complete without a trip to this endorphin-producer from the golden age.
