Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk newsletter/release
Hello Big Kahuna Club!
June is a GREAT month at the Boardwalk with Fireworks, Free Friday Night concerts, and weeknight discounts all getting underway.
We're pleased to announce that The Smithereens will replace The Knack on July 3. The Smithereens's big hits include "A Girl Like You," "Blood and Roses," and "Behind the Wall of Sleep." They are also known for their great covers of The Beatles and The Who. A great way to start your Fourth of July holiday weekend!
The Boardwalk's FREE Friday night concerts were recently highlighted in USA Today as the best free thing to do in the entire state, noting that, "Nothing says endless summer more than a concert on the beach."
Check out their interactive map and be sure to click on California!
A brand new attraction just opened near the Giant Dipper and judging by visitor reactions, it's going to be popular.
The Mission Impossible theme song sets the mood as you enter The Vault Laser Maze. Your friends can watch on a large screen as you make your way through a maze of laser beams to reach the finish and stop the clock. Challenge your friends!

Did you know?
The Giant Dipper, built in 1924, is a National Historic Landmark and one of the oldest roller coasters in the world.
After the first big hill, the Giant Dipper runs entirely on gravity. The strangest thing ever lost (and found) on the Giant Dipper was a glass eye!
Celebrate the Giant Dipper's 85th Birthday with a fireworks show on June 13.
See you at the beach!
