Listen: The Giant Dipper Turns 95!

Nothing feels more iconic of a Santa Cruz summer than the Giant Dipper, a red-and-white monument to fun, thrills, and the history of a landmark at the heart of town.

That icon turns 95 this year.

Discover all of the historical mysteries of the coaster’s construction on the third episode of That Was Weird, a new audio series from the MAH. Hosted by two local lifers (and MAH staffers) Marla Novo and Gabriel Kittle-Cervine, That Was Weird shares the people’s history of our strange and wonderful little beach town.
