This old-style family-amusement park at the southern end of Mission Beach has been here since 1925. There’s a large indoor pool, known as the Plunge, and a classic wooden roller coaster named the Giant Dipper, plus adventure golf, a new escape-room game, a carousel and other classics. More modern attractions include wave machines like Flowrider, for simulated surfing. Even if it sits on dry land, Belmont is to San Diego what the Santa Monica Pier amusement park is to LA.

During winter months check for closures due to ride maintenance.
