Santa Cruz Old & New

In August of 1911 the carousel made by the great

Danish woodcarver Charles I.D. Looff  was installed.


German-made 342-pipe Ruth und Sohn band organ built in 1894

provided music.  In 2007, a rare Wurlitzer 165 Band Organ previously

at San Francisco’s  Playland-at-the-Beach was added.

Both the Looff Carousel & the Giant Dipper wooden

roller coaster are National Historic registers.


Always bring out of state visitors, play & ride.

This is RB from Seattle & I.


Anybody remember the 10 cent ride tickets?
