SoCal may have bigger, glitzier theme parks, but if you enjoy the traditional vibe of an old boardwalk and amusement park, spend an afternoon at Belmont park. Deals are often available, and you can get ride wristbands online in advance to save time when you get there.
Some park favs include the Laser Maze, Sky Ropes, and Sky Climb, wave machine, children ride go-karts, mini golf, and arcade game classics like Pac-Man. The park offers a much intimate setting than the giant parks, with less walking required to see the entire park. Plus, admission and parking are free, so getting in is easy.
Although Belmont Park has changed shape and modernized since opening in the 1920s, surviving vintage attractions such as the Giant Dipper roller coaster and the Plunge swimming pool stand as fun reminders of the park’s family-friendly roots… –Belmont Park
