Belmont Park in Mission Beach Offers
Fun and Entertainment for All!
There are a lot of great amusement parks around the
United States but few are located right on the ocean and
include miles of beach, fresh ocean air and a variety of
attractions for kids and adults alike.
Belmont Park in Mission Beach has been a center of fun
and rides in San Diego since it opened on July 4rth 1925.
The amusement park was built by San Diego entreprenuer
John Spreckels and was designed to be a world class destination
which eventually also included a dance hall and the worlds largest
indoor salt water swimming pool.
Spreckels always made sure that everything was done to ensure
that the “Mission Beach Amusement Park”, as it was originally named
was the talk of not just San Diego but the regional area as well.
Over 85 years later the park is still a major attraction to beach
visitors and has kept up with adding popular rides, great restaurants,
music events, arcades and attractions like indoor laser tag and a mini
The one landmark which makes Belmont Park the most noticable place
in San Diego is the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster, which is said to be the
second oldest wooden roller coaster in the country.
The roller coaster still packs on kids and adults alike and provides a
great adrenaline rush for those who like to experience serious “g force”
turns and drops.
Prices for rides vary but in general the amusement park provides a
great value for families watching their budgets. All day wrist bands
for all the rides are only $22.50 per child and all day wrist bands for the
“kiddie rides” are only $14.95.
Belmont Park most recently was the first place to install the new
“wave machines” for surfers at their Wave House venue which
also includes a restaurant sitting right on the Mission Beach boardwalk.
Belmont Park is a place where everyone leaves happy and provides
plenty of fun for a day at the beach!
