Special Saturday–Belmont Park

Belmont Park in San Diego, California is a state landmark.  Even though it only has one coaster, and at its maximum only held three, it remains to be one of California’s most famous boardwalks.  The park houses a wide variety of rides and many other attractions, including a flow rider, a miniature golf course, and a laser tag complex.  The ride formerly held both a wooden kiddie coaster and a wooden wild mouse coaster, but both closed in the late 70’s.  The following is a list of the multiple thrill rides they have in the park.  The park also features a bumper car ride, a kiddie bouncing tower, a tilt a whirl, and a carrousel.
