 Review of Giant Dipper Roller Coaster @ Belmont Park
2 Rating Posted by: benleibo on 8/31/2004 5:44:00 PM
My family and I were driving back to San Diego, and when we passed by Mission Beach I knew we had to try the Giant Dipper. This seems to be one of the most classic coasters out there. I rode it at night, and it was just awesome. It has some very modern features despite its age, such as very high banks. It maintains its speed going over the hills, which many old coasters dont do. The tunnel and the beginning is a nice touch and the views are outstanding. The floater air on these old woodies is the best you can find. However, living near the Coney Island Cyclone, the Dipper just isnt the King. Although the Dipper has a more modern feel, the Cyclone is still the best classic because of its airtime and intensity. Also, I was upset that the Dipper didnt have old-fashioned cars like the Cyclone. However, still an outstanding coaster worthy of much attention.
