Supermassive SC Boardwalk Photo TR


Recommended Posts

Just over a week ago, I went to the SCBB during my trip to California. It was one of the last days of the trip, and I had been looking forward to this day for just under half a year. True to form, the Boardwalk did not disappoint!

 

We went to the Boardwalk on my parent's 23 wedding anniversary, because its where they first met. They were ride operators during the summer of 1980; On a regular basis, My dad operated the Spider, and my mom operated the Scrambler. They met while operating "The Autorama", and it was love at first sight! 4 years later, they got married, 2 years after that, the had my sister, and 5 years after that, they had *me*! Seeing as it was the Boardwalk's 100the birthday, it seemed perfect to come back for a double anniversary!

 

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk was my first home park, and will eternally be one of my favorites. There is so much to the Boardwalk, and I pleased to present the largest SCBB TR in history! I hope you enjoy the sheer depth of my report!

 

Rides I conquered, from one end, to the other:

 

Capt. Jack Flint's Pirate Ship

Double Shot

Speed Bumps

Hurricane

Sky Glider

Loof Carousel

Giant Dipper x 4

Fireball

Typhoon

Logger's Revenge

Riptide

Cliffhanger

Ghost Blaster

Wipeout

Freefall

Rock-O-Plane

Cave Train

Tornado

Cyclone

Crazy Surf

Ferris Wheel

Tsunami

 

Because of the great size of this report, I'll pe posting in chunks.

 

Day One: A Walk on the Warf and Down the Boardwalk

DSC01724.thumb.jpg.6e2828e4eac74c8489c21b06de40d07e.jpg

This, for some reason, seemed necisarry.

DSC01723.jpg.998764257c3a580b1df1559bfc0f82f9.jpg

Here's the famed "1911 Loof Carousel" in all it's glory.

DSC01722.jpg.e30b2e393e2b2a85fa6fa0d073250c9f.jpg

This is where my parents went on their first date, durring a break on each of their shifts.

DSC01721.jpg.421f616ad0b6df9986028e10e078f8d8.jpg

Double Shot is an avid patriot.

DSC01720.jpg.63cc3256eafdfa34cc13667b21b48196.jpg

The Mighty Hurricane!

DSC01719.jpg.2f33d8e93b222ebc10fba9085e6dbd2e.jpg

This is Egbert. he's been riding the Sky Glider for about 40 years now, but still seems relentlessly content. You'll meet his wife later in the report.

DSC01718.jpg.8455d5d8d79993681f79f319e6b219b6.jpg

Speed Bumps lives in a dark cave underneath Hurricane. Its nearly totally blind, sleeps durring the day, and only comes out at night to feed on indigenous Boardwalk Mushrooms.

DSC01717.jpg.8d9920f9ef018250a57766fc31b463b1.jpg

Not only does the Double Shot provide quite a rip, but it's my first S&S tower that actually goes ALL THE WAY up, and ALL THE WAY back down, twice!

DSC01716.jpg.67dde31a6ef7b639328346d95ace288f.jpg

This is what happens to pedestrians who jump lines at the Boardwalk.

DSC01715.jpg.895325f7eb73c9caf83b84ac93fb6266.jpg

Eye! this scurvy tower went 'n and messed up me vantage point! Arrgh!

DSC01714.jpg.c9cff92928da89988ac5dfa3c7fb854a.jpg

Yay! We've made it to the Boardwalk!

DSC01713.jpg.fe312e90b9307dd3a5a1a583566f47f0.jpg

The Giant Dipper train says "Hi!".

 

By the way, my "Boardwalk Sectioning System", or "BSS" is a trademarked system that is owned and copywrited by AxCo. Industries.

DSC01710.jpg.d46966cb27b17a9161e85797ccd0022d.jpg

To the right of the Boardwalk we see...MILLON DOLLAR REALESTATE!

DSC01709.jpg.f5eafda44207f3b8034e0f96b5118cf9.jpg

Here's the rest of the Giant Dipper section, which is eveything left of Loggers Revenge, and reaches all the way to the Carousel.

DSC01707.jpg.d9aec84683018ac26319796839cd2fce.jpg

I'm sure you've figured out by now that this report will be quite image heavy...

DSC01706.jpg.cc93c0bbec27029b6ff5b2308289ee7a.jpg

Here's the "Logger's Revenge" side of the Boardwalk and part of the Giant Dipper" section. The Logger's Revenge side engulfs everything left of the Giant Dipper.

DSC01703.jpg.d87036ef25a8368b3fa13d2737393f62.jpg

It was origonaly a large swimming hole, but was then remodled.

DSC01701.jpg.bc57a9949238a249791bbb78ffa8f14c.jpg

Here's the Hurricane with the "Casino". Though not a true casino, it does boast of one of the largest arcades in California!

DSC01700.jpg.1c94288175bba0415af9230568355964.jpg

This is the "Hurricane" side of the Boardwalk, and is curriently sporting its new addition, "Double Shot".

The Boarwalk actually used to have a Dragon Wagon, but they upgraded. The old Dragon coaster commited suicide.

Double Shot Training.

Because "Cave Train 2" sounds too much like a movie, "Cave Train Adventure" will have to do.

A Dragon Wagon's wet dream: A waterfall AND an an ride camera.

Despite its tight location, the Boardwalk has always packed in rides to the brim.

DSC01761.jpg.5f8aa1cdd24c2f7e0398b891afbe1984.jpg

Why is it "Crazy"? Who knows. Who cares? No one. Get over it--wait, I've already used this before on an other TR.

What a Dragon Wagon WISHES it could be.

The Cave Train Dino is blussfully unaware of the exitement and color behind him...

Rock-O-Plane gets me vote for the "Best ride that doesn't exist in enough places" award. Seriously, the world could use more of these.

DSC01757.jpg.eea6352961a818c55bba74e29aff7320.jpg

Life over the "Cave Train Adventure" is so colorful!

DSC01756.jpg.fde1b464aff8498b6100a393212a330d.jpg

The Logger's Revenge station has grown more realistic with age. It's developed a dark, sea-kissed, wood tone.

DSC01755.jpg.d64cf2f6ebcb92a1bb3ad3e2199aaa91.jpg

They should really re-paint this ride a more flatering color, like "aquamarine".

DSC01754.jpg.191e8ac5afb58eedce327c49c6834ff7.jpg

Rock-O-Plane is sporting some shiny new car bottoms!

We hope you've enjoyed: A TRIP THROUGH TIME

Here's part of the Casino, with the Ferris Wheel in its former location, as well as the defunct Trabant. If I could have any of the Boardwalk rides back, Trabant would be my hands-down choice.

DSC01749.jpg.97a5feb00d83fd6af418460ca5c14f5b.jpg

Here's the Carousel and Sky Ride with the defunct Jet Star.

And Now: A TRIP THROUGH TIME

 

Here's the Rock-O-Plane in it's old location, and the defunct Autorama, Arctic Flyer, Mini-Carousel, and Cave Train.

This is the Giant Dipper. It's Giant. And it Dips. Hence, the name.

I knew this was comming...

DSC01731.jpg.2cdf5e5353b80445932dac50759bc835.jpg

This is what the Boardwalk has such good food. Each item must be put through a rigorous Giant Dipper test!

Keep the pictures coming. I know I seem to ask everyone now that went to SCBB if they did the Wipeout spinning thingy before the ride and know how to make it spin a lot during the ride. Looking forward to the rest of the TR!

 

The key is to lean back. That way, the car will start spinning in a centrafugic way. I really love the lights and background; Its a lot better then when it was "Whirlwind".

I found leaning to the sides (Shifting your weight) helped a lot, provided your timing's right. I tried this at Great America (Outdoor Breakdance ride) both just sitting still and doing the leaning into the turns so that the car could go through it's spin a lot faster and keep going.

Nice TPR with tons of pic's, post some more.

 

I like the "Rock-O-Plane (The Egg Wheel) and "Trabant", some of my fav flat rides.

 

If you are in England head to any "Butlins": Minehead and Bognor Regis as they have a "Trabant" in their fair.

 

I call "Trabant" a Mexican Hat ride.

Day 2: Endless Rides & Friends

 

Pulled a just-over-10-hour day at the Boardwalk today, riding every I possibly could! Lots of friends came and went throughout the day. Enjoy

DSC01823.jpg.954751745e0e892827c4d30115825af8.jpg

The flat top of the Carousel is slighty less gleamy.

DSC01822.jpg.931a180db4cc0e3f28266e5075eb4bbb.jpg

Hurricane must have JUST gotten re-painted, because I have never seen it this gleaming durring the 4 years I lived in Santa Cruz.

DSC01821.jpg.d1d3e604895d575572a601dc6d81c04f.jpg

The Montery Bay. Notice how few people there are on the beach, compared to the Boardwalk, regardless of the beautiful 75 dagree weather.

DSC01820.jpg.8dc8ce24c4356976ab3b2b6a1c339315.jpg

This is how crowded the park was at the peak of busyness. Despite this emense sea of people, the park operations were smooth and highly saught-after.

DSC01819.jpg.df062624a56d5e5e7731dd1816a152fd.jpg

EXTREME FEET! ...and Bi-Polar Spongebob.

DSC01818.jpg.9ec863b33af80982e1d72ba2b828bca0.jpg

Our Chariot awaits....

DSC01817.thumb.jpg.92d41a0bc0cf9589d8b0ba7ba34baa67.jpg

From here, you can see the sagging of the cable due to the weight of us fat Californians!

DSC01816.jpg.3e978a0e6802d4bcd270d996969d6d33.jpg

About 45 seconds after Red train came through, Blue train is about to crest the lift.

DSC01815.jpg.34d0d74ac459d8f92ba88b7b9c8a850c.jpg

Due to the direct exposure, the rides in the "Hurricane Side" of the park are the most outlandishly giddy.

DSC01814.jpg.63d77a4aeee2be7031298f5216d56305.jpg

So THIS is where the Boardwalk's super-happiness is coming from! It must be radiating from these anatomicly-incorrect sea creatres, and spreading throughout the Boardwalk like a deadly virus!

DSC01812.jpg.6cd28d71401fd1af3767fa05139cd5fd.jpg

Naturally, so did Starfish.

DSC01811.jpg.139123fc0ed6eb739c2a095dae252374.jpg

And of course, the Speedway had a max waiting time of -1 minute(s).

DSC01810.jpg.b7d27e3bc6558cf1a154caa4e8efbf3a.jpg

The Hurricane was cresting the lift hill about every 45 seconds with its two train operation. The Boardwalk ops are unstoppable!

DSC01809.thumb.jpg.925a639c809cd701c0c60837a23413e0.jpg

The double shot was doing its thing about every 3 minutes. Go SCBB ride ops!! Again!!!

DSC01807.jpg.829d356dcd7298f613df42cce52a04d2.jpg

It really is a cool thing to see against the blue sky when you look up.

DSC01806.jpg.2fb03d83ed10e289f4f8075359eaeb42.jpg

The Sky Glider may be old, but it still Rocks A$$! I provides million-dollar photo opportunities that are a force to be reconed with!

DSC01804.jpg.8584392d369ab500267eae8909877dbd.jpg

These people are almost as happy as the Boardwalk!

DSC01803.jpg.6d9bc37d683d222d27c01359415d4e27.jpg

And they survived!

The "Tribute to Z-Force" Drop.

The Hurricane is just a super-happy pile of excitment and wonder today!

CAUTION: DO NOT WALK ON THESE BOARDS.

DSC01797.jpg.9bcc21cd1cb37138e4cb57ae6595df61.jpg

Except for the Carousel, who has somehow managed to sustain its composure.

DSC01796.jpg.454e461eb26bdca42e93d9ae308cb1b2.jpg

Everything is just bright, happy bundles of endless fun and joy today!!!!!

Somehow you managed to not get any pictures of me in there!

 

You write great captions...makes it fun to read.

 

Is Egbert really the name of the man dummy on Glider? Or did you make that up?

 

Thank You! I'm flattered to hear that! I try my best to make it informative and entertaining.

 

Me and Jessica made up names for the Cavemen on the Sky Glider, while we were waiting in line. The husband is Egbert, and the wife is Fortuna. (Granted that they are married: We had assumed so.)

Actualy, the Dipper was around durring The Depression. I'd rather ride it than break plates. What did plates ever do to you?

The only reason why this ride isn't called "Brain-Popper", is because the name wouldn't fit on this sign.

California flag has a picture of a bear on it, for no apparent reason. It's as though they're trying to premote a certin suck-ass woodie near by...

The Brain Popper just won't quit, will it?

DSC01836.jpg.88f01546f8773cf51602fe240bca1569.jpg

The Dipper really is built mostly on a bunch of rooftops. maybe that's why its so sturdy?

Giant Dipper and the Santa Cruz mountains.

For some reason, the Dipper didn't fall over durring the quake of '89, even though it doesn't have any extra support.

DSC01832.jpg.b085b3d16ea6addfb88f5f9619895912.jpg

The Dipper may be giant, but its definetly squished into its footprint.

DSC01831.jpg.fa32298e8ef6a5c845c8516d4c3343bc.jpg

There's that sign again!

Despite the frusturation it feels because of Castle trespassers, the Castle Spider can not attack, because he is paralized from the thorax down.

The lights look kinda cool, now that I'm used to it. :)

Blury log, on a blury log flume, in a blury amusement park. Wonderful.

Even through the blurryness, any Dragon Wagon can feel the pain of not having track lights.

Oh, false alarm. Sorry!

I don't know about you, but these pictures are starting to make me neaseus.

DSC01933.jpg.ea3119eaa5ea716a18b0cf7d129dec15.jpg

Aside from the blurryness, these pictures can give you a good idea of how compact this park is.

DSC01931.jpg.8aaba67cbc48ab12ba8c1745ba92ae06.jpg

The park is magnificent from the Ferris Wheel, just not from my camera.

DSC01930.jpg.7e5442ab08c422c8d7962a7a5b0ba616.jpg

Yes.

DSC01929.jpg.0bacb738b5ab9691858537351dc3c577.jpg

Could there be any more happening here?

DSC01928.jpg.6aef051a1b2c1cfbe509df3cd7eb1a1f.jpg

All of these aireals are obviously taken from the Ferris Wheel, but the motion makes it even more difficult to take nightime pictures. This is the Santa Cruz Warf, by the way.

DSC01925.jpg.6fa0806e768f995c67ff51d131736273.jpg

Hopefully, by the time my next TR rolls around, I will have invested in a camera that takes better night pictures.

DSC01919.jpg.548d65a59fd071f87feeff80d76781dc.jpg

The façade says it all.

In case you haven't noticed, Edward Gorey is my favorite author, and I spontaneously quote sayings from his books when I can't think of a good caption.
