This is a cool roller coaster, and quite iconic. It's worth checking out as well as the beach nearby.

Great Old School Roller Coaster!
Mar 2019 • Couples
I came here many years ago to ride this thing, but it was not running, and kind of run down. Now, it has been restored and its beautiful! I might also add that it is now equipped with all of the modern safety devices. This is your old style coaster, built of wood, fast and rough! I have ridden a lot of roller coasters, but this one actually scared me a bit. After you get off, you can wander around and look at the rest of this old style amusement park. There are other rides, carnival games, and lots of junk food. Admission to the park is free, as is the limited parking. There is also street parking close by.

Fun throw back!
Jun 2018 • Couples
We had a blast riding this old wooden roller coaster! If you don’t know, wooden coasters have a rough ride, so this isn’t your smooth coaster like at a newer amusement park. That being said, it’s a great ride and incredible to think it was built in 1925!! At only $6 a rider, it’s a good band for your buck. Go for it!

We took a family vaca to sunny SD and I was so excited to share my coaster experience with my teens. It was a lot of fun! Definitely something to check off your bucket list while in SD. The arcade area was a huge hit with our four teens as well.

For old times sake!

Delightful old wooden roller coaster!! Good hills, drops & turns. As with most wooden coasters, it's very rough & jerky. I would advise against anyone with neck or back injury to ride. It's also pretty expensive.... $7 per person, per ride.

It's A Screamer!

If you want a hair pulling experience...try a ride on the roller coaster in Mission Beach. Buy a ticket at the booth, wait in a short line for the next run, climb aboard and be prepared to scream!!

A journey back in time
Dec 2016 • Couples
This may be a thrill ride from the past but it still has the ability to get the adrenalin flowing. As a wooden frame construction the more abrupt transitions and change of direction add to the thrill and is well worth the experience, if only for nostalgia.

Don't Judge This One By How It Looks!
Jul 2016
#1 - I love wooden roller coasters! This one looked like a cute little old coaster, but it packed a punch! We ended up riding it three times and enjoyed it just as much each time!

Fun, but old-fashioned
Jul 2016 • Family
It's a safe and fun roller coaster, but being an old wooden type makes the corners very "jerky". Just be ready!
