The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk opened its gate back in 1907 and ever since has been one of the favorite entertainment zones in Santa Cruz. The amusement park is in fact the oldest in California, and one of the few seaside ones in the country. Some of the most famous and popular rides of the Beach Boardwalk are Neptune’s Kingdom, The Plunge, mini golf, gaming arcade and the much renowned Giant Dipper Roller Coaster. Also an added advantage of the Boardwalk is that the sandy beaches of Santa Cruz are just a short walk away, making it an ideal attraction to kick start your city tour!

  • If I could afford it I would go to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk once a month. Not that it cost a lot to be there. I just live 200 miles away and I cannot afford the gas. It's a nice Beach. Cleaner than our local Lake. Lots of games to play lots of things to do. And a few rides. It's been almost 2 months since I've been there and I wear a necklace that I bought at Goodwill near Santa Cruz and a shark tooth that I bought on the boardwalk. If I was a Traveller looking for places to visit I would surely put it on my list.

  • Love Santa Cruz Board Walk! Went here this week on a Wednesday and stayed at one of the cozy hotels. Best midweek getaway/work trip. It was off season but some of the best weather ever. Sunny and cool at night. No rides going but had an amazing meal at Ideals and walked the Boardwalk and beach. Then the pier after dinner stared at the seals under the pier ....sooooo cute! Hope to do this again soon.

  • First of all it was tons of fun... things here are prices in a medium rage because I don’t thing anything will be more expensive than Disneyland. The rides are fun but for a younger crowd who are not quite ready for six flags. Rides cost points and points cost $. When I went it’s was $1.00=1 point. Rides range from 5 to 7 points so as you can see it adds up I recommend you get the wristband it was $30.00 at the time. Food was okay but can add up quickly. The park itself has no entrance fee so you can go and come as you please, like eat at your own car and run back in for fun. It’s hard to find the free parking because some people show up before the shops open and take them but the paid parking is $15. To save yourself some more money when your at the ticket window ask for the shop coupons.

  • Loved the get out and be active attitude everyone I encountered had. People were out just enjoying the rays of sun and scenery. The fair like area of the boardwalk with rides and food booths was closed during the week at this time so that was sad since we didn’t get the full effect of the visit. During our sad walk along the closed boardwalk I did see that they had a great selection of rides and entertainment that included a huge arcade and sand volleyball courts. Stayed at the Dream Inn during my stay with spectacular service all the staff always had a smile and greeted me even as I walked back and forth by the same people a few times but without a beat missed they still acknowledged I was there. The hotel was perfectly placed among walking and enjoyment region of the boardwalk. The view from the room was amazing and description won’t do it justice. The room itself was modern and updated, extremely clean, and many amenities that you would expect. Overall I wish we had more time but one of the best decisions I made was to take a run around the area and see all the amazing establishments you could visit and the creativity the people of Santa Cruz portray in their town.
