Giant Dipper Roller Coaster
The 1925 Giant Dipper Roller Coaster (or "Earthquake")
is a large wooden roller coaster, and its highest "hills"
reach a height of 75 feet. It is one of only two large
wooden scaffolded roller coasters remaining on the West
Coast. The Giant Dipper was designed by noted coaster
builders Prior and Church. It is the prime survivor and
most visible symbol of the Mission Beach Amusement Center.
It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
