Have been here multiple times. My kids enjoy almost all the rides. Have spent 7 hours just for ride in a day. Love the ticketing options they have. One thing which I felt not comfortable is with recharge of tickets should have low limit as much as $5 but which is only $20. You could spend entire day on a summer day at here.

Hop on some classic rides at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk! Giant Dipper is a 1924 wooden roller coaster that will give you just the right amount of thrills with a coastal view. The 1911 Charles I.D. Looff Carousel won't just take you for a spin, saddle up to the horse closest to the outer edge and grab a ring from the metal arm to toss into the clown's mouth. If the ring goes in, it lights up green and you win the horse you're on (that last part isn't true).

Very fun beach, but don't expect too much in terms of rides. They have 3 roller coasters and at max 5 other nice rides. If youre looking for a thrill try something else, if youre going casual then this is the place for you.

Love the boardwalk and it's nostalgia. Bring lots of money as the food is pricey. Only thing I would change is the freshness of food, towards the end of the day you can tell the corndogs and churros have sat in the warmers too long. For the price they should be fresh tasting!

The beach is awesome. The rides are thrilling, the most thrilling is the fire ball, it was spectacular. The food is expensive ,but fantastic. All in all, great place to hangout or vacation .

It's very nice place sunny weather and go explore and enjoy the park rides and of course beautiful beach. Recommend to buy a year membership than Costco day pass for two. If you buy one year membership, you get a discount coupon book and more and you're friend gets a free day pass as well. It's totally worth it.

I've been going here pretty much my whole life and I love this place. This arcade is the best I've been to outside of Japan. The variety of games is nice. Also, the rides here are better than most. You have your standard Farris Wheel and what not but the real draw is the Giant Dipper. It's one of a few coastal wooden roller coasters in America. The only downside is the food isn't that great, but that's what you usually find at amusement parks.

It's corny but still a lot of fun. Rides, arcades, overpriced souvenir shops and food, and good times on the beach. If you are a fan of dance dance revolution, the Neptune Arcade has a really-good-condition In The Groove 3 machine also with songs from DDR up to Supernova.

#ThrowBackThursday! 🏄🏼 #SantaCruzLifeguards have been protecting visitors and locals on Main Beach in front of the Boardwalk every summer since the 1930s! Here they are in 1948 with 12' surfboards purchased in 1938 at the suggestion of Hawaiian Olympic swimming champion and "Father of Surfing," Duke Kahanamoku. These guys seem pretty cool, don't they? 😎

Last call for Camp Boardwalk, where kids get an entire week of Boardwalk fun! Campers learn magic tricks, draw caricatures with a Boardwalk artist, bowl a strike, make salt water taffy, play beach games and enjoy the rides. A perfect week for ages 5-12. Register for our last few sessions of 2016 - it's the perfect time to try out the ultimate day camp!
