News & Rumors


Santa Cruz, California (Abbreviation: SCBB)



2017 - New Ride / New Frightwalk and Laser Maze Buildings - (5/7/16) Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk fans can expect some changes to the park this fall. Already confirmed by the local news are plans to demolish the building that currently houses the Frightwalk, Laser Maze and the Arcade. A new building will replace it that will become a new home to those attractions next year, as well as add a better access point and ticket booths for the park.
   While a 2-story building is leaving, it will be replaced by two separate single story buildings instead, though the rumor is that the Frightwalk attraction may go into a new “underground” level below the new building, similar to the Haunted Castle I believe.
    (4/19/16) I'm told that Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk informed those attending an ACE event at the park over the weekend that they plan to add a new ride UNDER the Undertow spinning coaster for 2017, though they will have to expand the boardwalk in that area a bit to make room for it. Any ideas on what it will be?  Apparently they did at least confirm that it will not be a Larson Super Loop style ride.


???? - Expand Undertow Deck - Rumor - Fitting in with the 2017 plans to replace the 2-story Frightwalk / Arcade / Laser Maze building with new single story buildings are rumors about expanding the second story attraction deck that currently is home to the Undertow coaster to eventually cover these new single story buildings and allow for the construction of more new attractions space on the second level. The timeline for this project is unknown at this time.
