People tend to check in during these times:
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk features modern and classic thrill rides, restaurants, miniature golf, video arcades, and bowling, located on a mile of sandy beach.
Sea lions! Seafood! Views!
A beautiful day in October.
The big dipper
Park in one of the residential neighborhoods by the train bridge. Salt water taffy, rides, and sunshine! Don't forget sunglasses, water, and sunscreen
Feel it should be more dog friendly
My second favorite amusement park after Disneyland. Beach and rides combo is fantastic. Great for little kids. Season pass is a fantastic value.
Very busy all nights--tourist spot. Still ha gotta visit!
Good place for kids but feels very much like a cheesy tourist trap. Worth doing once.
Fireball is the best.
The system by which you buy tickets for rides is simple and sensible!
Good for families!!
Get some of the fresh cinnamon nuts...so good! Mixed bag is the best!
Monday and Tuesday nights after 5pm, all rides, hot dogs and soda are only $1!!! Totally worth it!
Classic beach fun. Stay at the Dream Inn.
I went here for a free concert.
Every single ride and the 1970's summer beach soundtrack. Get a season pass if you plan to go more than 2 times in a year. It pays for itself after 16 rides.
Great slice of America! I love this place! Who can beat free admission. Don't play in the San Lorenzo outlet, though, that is just nasty
Love the beaches and tons of places to eat. You have to check out Neptune's Kingdom and the huge arcade.
Deep fry everything!
DO NOT GO ON THE "FIRE BALL". It is traumatic. And this is coming from a roller-coaster enthusiast. 🎢😰🔫
It beautiful and change of scenic!!!

Idyllic amusement park with awesome views of the beach.
I remember coming here as a kid and most of it has stayed in tact. Nice to see the locals still enjoying it. The jungle climb was the most popular carnival game. Trying to figure how to game it still.
Love the rollercoaster!!!! :))
There is a pineapple stand that sells Dole Whip identical to what you can find at Disneyland!
This is not the fun place it was when I was a kid. This theme park is hella ghetto. A lot of people walking around ready to fight over nothing.
Piece of sh*t beach with the worst f***ing traffic and parking.. Absolutely worthless
Super happening place. Great games and fun thrilling rides along with eats and shops.
Family fun day
Everything is awesome!!!
Everything is Awesome
Sand, surf, greasy food and cheesy carnival rides.
Beware, the Giant Dipper lunges into the dark.
Enjoy the rides
Fun place! Ride the Giant Dipper. Very good beach. Like the arcade. Should change its name because there haven't been boards at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in 30 years.
Fun with grandkids!
Giant Dipper is one of the best rides ever. Monday and Tuesday are retro nights, meaning $1 per ride.
Fun! What else can I say.
Really fun but crowded. Had great seafood at the a Mexican restaurant and beautiful sunset
I'm never coming here again on a holiday weekend. The traffic and and the crowds were unbelievable. Be prepared to pay 5 times retail for any food you buy on the Boardwalk.
Ride the Wipe Out.
Check out the wharf! It has restaurants, shops, ice cream, sea life, and more.
Night rides r the best
Do not come here on memorial weekend. Seriously.... Just don't. If you do, plan on spending a shit ton of time sitting in your car super pissed off
good fun all year round. free smmer concerts on the beach rock!
Dirty, filthy and crowded. Go to Monterey instead, so much prettier there.
Winter all day pass is just over $20. Worth it for die hard ride fans.
