Foursquare Tips

  • Deep Fried Twinkies go great with a Pepsi. Just go on the Giant Dipper first.
  • Fun day at the beach. Remember back in the day when the whole family went to the beach? This photo was taken at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk in 1972. Share your photos of beaches and boardwalks.
  • Be like a kid again :)
  • In the SC listen to 102.5 KDON
  • Best time to go is early in the season as rides are freshly painted and staff is still energetic and happy.
  • Wear a Bra if your gonna ride the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster! :)
