Giant Dipper – 1925
Belmont Park, San Diego, California

Again, you’re not experiencing Deja Vu. Maybe it’s that creative names were at a premium back in the day or maybe it’s because they were both developed by the same design team. Whatever the reason, this one got named the Giant Dipper, too, but there are definite differences. This one boasts a top speed of 55 MPH (88 KPH) and offers amazing views of the Pacific Ocean from the top.
