About us

The San Diego area’s first amusement park opened in the small beach town of Ocean Beach on July 4, 1913. Wonderland Park was built that year on a sandy beach south of Abbott Street, between Voltaire Street and the ocean, which covered an area of 9-1/2 acres.

More than a decade before Mission Beach’s Belmont Park opened, Wonderland represented the height of summertime entertainment in the up-and-coming city of San Diego. Waterslide, roller skating rink, carnival games, bowling alley, a zoo with 350 monkeys and the West Coast’s biggest roller coaster — Wonderland had it all.

Our decor is an homage to the amusement park's former glory. We aim to offer a modern-day good time. Fabulous ocean views, friendly service and a great casual menu complete our Wonderland concept.
