Belmont Park featuring rides

The amusement park at Mission Beach offers lots of old-fashioned family fun, plus a range of newer thrill rides and attractions.

If the flashing lights, pumping music and high-speed rides of modern theme parks are overwhelming, then you’ll appreciate the gentler pace of the attractions in Belmont Park.

Built in 1925 by local property magnate John D. Spreckles, the park was an instant hit thanks to attractions like the Giant Dipper roller coaster and the Plunge swimming pool. These are the only two original attractions that were kept when the park was restored in the 1980s.

Despite the dozens of newer rides, the Giant Dipper remains the most iconic feature of the park. Its curves dominate the skyline and you’ll see it from Mission Beach long before you enter the park.

The WaveHouse is a more recent Belmont Park attraction and features two new surf simulation rides, the Flowrider and the Flowbarrel. Lazerblast is great fun for groups, especially teenagers, but couples and smaller families may not get the same experience and atmosphere.

You’ll find plenty of other nostalgic attractions including an old-fashioned carousel and bumper cars. Unlimited ride wristbands are available for purchase at the ticket desk. Eateries at the park range from sit-down places like the Draft to grab-and-go options at Dottie's Pop Shop.

With no admission fee, free parking and cheap food, Belmont Park is an inexpensive way to spend a day at the beach. Enter and leave as many times as you want throughout the day. In summer, head to the park at night for a great party atmosphere; it’s open until midnight on Friday and Saturday from mid-June through mid-August. You’ll find the lines for the rides less busy, or even non-existent, in winter, which makes the park a perfect holiday attraction even in the cooler months.
