History

The park was opened one year after the Santa Cruz Casino burnt down. Soon after the park opened, a Scenic Railway by L.A. Thompson opened, followed by a 1911 Charles Looff handcarved carousel. The scenic railway was torn down t make room for Giant Dipper, which opened in 1924. The 1990's added new rides and attractions, and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk remains one of the few beachparks on the West Coast.
