Must-Do Activities at Belmont Park

Located just a couple of blocks from the Bahia Resort Hotel, Belmont Park is a landmark in San Diego. The beachfront amusement park originally opened in 1925, and today it continues to provide family entertainment for all ages. With plenty of rides and arcade games for all-day fun, here are some stand-out activities during your Mission Beach adventure.  

Giant Dipper

You can’t miss this historic wooden roller coaster as you cruise into Mission Beach. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1990, the Giant Dipper was built when the park first opened in 1925. Almost a century later, locals and visitors alike flock to the classic attraction for a seaside adrenaline rush. Join the fun and take a ride on this bucket-list coaster!

Sky High Fun

Climbing and height enthusiasts will find plenty of thrill-seeking opportunities at Belmont Park. Head onward and upward with the Sky Climb rock wall, or try climbing with a twist and race your friends up a “palm tree” with the new Coconut Climb. If you’d rather take in the view without the effort, hop on the park’s Zipline and zoom up to 15 mph above the crowds.

Laser Mania

Gather your pals, divide into two teams, and play a nostalgic game of laser tag in the heart of Belmont Park. Explore three levels of neon and black light game zones for an exciting competition.
