Belmont Park – San Diego’s Best Amusement Park Attraction

There are a lot of great attractions and places to visit in San Diego, but when it comes time for a great place by the beach it is hard to beat Belmont Park in Mission Beach.

Belmont Park was originally opened in 1925 as “The Mission Beach Amusement Park”. At that time Mission Beach was a new development and it was just being connected into the transportation line coming from downtown San Diego thanks to San Diego business tycoon John D. Spreckels, who owned the San Diego trolley and the new amusement park.

Belmont Park has had a long history of being a great place to visit for over 80 years and especially over the last 5 years or so.

The Belmont Park area includes great restaurants, shopping, attractions, rides and of course The Giant Dipper – the 80+ year old roller coaster.

Make sure you come down and have lunch at Canes or The Wave House and enjoy the rides and great views located right on the boardwalk in Mission Beach….there is something for everyone at Belmont Park!


Steps away from the Pacific Ocean, Belmont Park offers the most in family fun and entertainment, whether it’s making the drop on the Vertical Plunge or experiencing the ups and downs on the Historic Giant Dipper Roller Coaster, we’ve got it all. Belmont Park also features the historic Plunge, built in 1925, it’s the largest indoor public swimming pool in Southern California.  New this season, Belmont Park will be the nation’s first amusement park to feature the FlowRider, a ridable simulated wave attraction.
