Still a fun place that will last another 100 years
Granted the Boardwalk isn't by far the best in the country but it's a great place to go. You have carnival and amusement park types rides, including the Giant Dipper, much like the Giant Dipper in Belmont Park here in San Diego. Although the whole boardwalk I think is much better than Belmont. There is more activity, the best is literally right there, the view is gorgeous, Neptune's Kingdom gives that arcade/mini golf and there is always something to do and funny people to watch. Although there is security here, it's just not enough and the place isn't kept clean very often but I think this isn't Seaside Company's fault, but of neglectful visitors, who come in droves and just generally...
Old Fashioned Fun
Roaring Camp Railroads is one historic landmark/tour you have to check out if anything for a child's education. Much like any visit to a ghost town you get to learn about the history of the railroads and how it was once very beneficial to the growth and economy of Santa Cruz and the towns in the Mountain Range. Aside from the educational aspects of this place, it is in a stunning location that is conveniently located near the center of Felton. And what's especially nice is you actually get to ride the trains to get a feel of what it must have like for residents of SC County circa late 1800s!
This was the closest theme park in my area when I was growing up as a kid. Season passes are the way to go, and you can usually beat the lines if you go on an off day.
This is the place to take your friends for a friendly competition. The rides are legit and you can get your adrenaline going.
I like this place because it's a local entertainment activities for everyone. They have miniature golf and go carts.
