1907 – One Of The First Amusement Parks In California Established At The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

In 1907, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk was built as one of the first amusement parks in the state of California.  In 1911 a carousel was established within the park, and in 1924 the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster was added to the park’s attractions.  The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is one of a few amusement parks, such as the one in Santa Monica, that still exist on the coast of California.
