The park's most distinctive attraction, the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster is one of two original oceanfront roller coasters still operating on the west coast. The Giant Dipper was originally built in 1925 and has recently been restored for all to experience the excitement of its quick drops, steep hills, sharp curves and high speeds!
