Combining unforgettable nostalgia with modern-day fun, we're California's oldest amusement park. We're also a State Historical Landmark, with two National Historic Landmarks - our 1911 Looff Carousel and 1924 Giant Dipper roller coaster. Established in 1904, the boardwalk area also features a renovated arcade/casino that was built in 1907.

Also to be found on the boardwalk is Neptune's Kingdom Adventure Center, with miniature golf, game and historical displays.
