Theme Park Review's 2009 West Coast Trip!

The next stop on Theme Park Review's West Coast Tour was Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!

The main attraction here is of course the Giant Dipper!

We were given an amazing opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at this classic coaster!

"That's right, they are letting us into restricted areas...are they crazy?"

"That's right! We are all photo geeks!"

Did I mention they let us get REALLY CLOSE to the coaster!!!!

This is what it looks like underneath that big fan turn of the Giant Dipper!

Hooray for great photo opportunities!


Happy riders.

"Not for us!"

That chain is what makes the coaster train go up the big hill!

We got to go behind the orange door.


Check us out! We've invaded the maintenance area!

That big ass machine makes the belt move, which makes the giant wheel move which makes the chain go up the lift hill! It's very complicated!

There is another look at the big ass complicated lift hill machine.

It's all very cool and we were very lucky to get in this room!


Hooray for Giant Dipper backstage tour!

And now...VIDEO from our behind the scenes look at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk's Giant Dipper!
