Time Out says

As National Historic Landmarks go, San Diego’s “Giant Dipper” has to be one of the most entertaining in the whole country. The beautiful old wooden roller coaster was constructed in 1925 but is still the centerpiece of Belmont Park—a vintage amusement park in popular Mission Beach. For just $6 per person you can ride its famous dips and turns, with beautiful views of both neighboring Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean to enjoy as you do (if you keep your eyes open that is). Afterwards, explore Belmont Park’s other classic carnival rides and—if you’re still feeling brave—try a session on the FlowBarrel (“the mother of all artificial wave machines”).
