Thanks for the unnecessary visual. I've never had a problem parking, I always pay the $12 and park right across the street. Granted I don't try to hit all the flat rides, but I've never felt rushed at The Boardwalk. One of the things I love about it is it's a place I can come to to just get away and feel relaxed and laid back. I love to just wander up and down the beach.

In fact parking, food, bathrooms, and queues are better managed at SCBB than at any other park on the west coast except maybe DLR. I've never had or witnessed a problem, though I don't wander underneath the boardwalk. If you have a problem with SCBB you should probably just stay home.

On a lighter note, I just found these photos recently, I posted them to SCBB's memories page but I think some here might enjoy as well. My grandfather's brother Warren and his wife visited SCBB on their honeymoon in 1941.

I hope one day they give the Cave Train an upgrade. It has been 14 years since its remodel, and it's losing its edge.

Yep. that's why I'm thinking it's time for an upgrade.

Also there seems to be a new kiddie ride stuffed between the Sea Swings and Rock'N'Roll.

This park really knows how to maximize space.

Eh.. I don't know... I don't really like how they're cramming rides wherever they have a space. Makes them look desperate. Speedway and this new Kiddie Cruzers ride looks out of place and tacky. :?r

I don't see any issues with it. I would prefer this over removing a ride.
