Does this review make you want to ride The Giant Dipper ?
Not Sure

In sunny California south of San Francisco you'll find the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Here is where you'll encounter one of the oldest classic wooden rollercoasters on earth built in 1924 and is called the Giant Dipper. As you leave the station you go through a long dark tunnel. Your train climbs up the lift. (left) The first drop (below) is fabulous with a lot of air time and is followed by several other nice drops that will lift you out of your seat. The intensity continues until the very end. This classic is nothing less than awesome.
A very tight turn. (left)

Another small dip. (right)

A great ride!
