A local radio show made Belmont Park's roller-coaster world famous. Hoping to win a new car, the show fans spent several consecutive hours riding the coaster. Do not miss it, but try not to get carried away as you ride one of the oldest all-wood coasters still in operation. For those not into thrills that include fast-paced turns and long free-falling drops, the ocean-front park also has an indoor swimming pool, a new wave-generation pool, and a family play-land, along with several shops and restaurants. It opens daily at 11a.
Go for the coaster! The Wave House swimming pool & the Giant Dipper roller coaster were both built in the same era (early 20's?) & have a lot of history behind them. The rest of the amusement park is standard faire - but enough to keep the kids occupied for a while.
The coaster is a creaky, old wooden affair with updated cars (for safety). It's great! It's been showcased on several tv programs that talked about classic coasters & their enthusiasts.
