Boardwalk - 400 Beach St. Santa Cruz, Ca. 95060
(Santa Cruz Boardwalk)

The boardwalk opened in 1907 and is California's oldest surviving amusement park. It extends along the coast of Monterey Bay from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf south to the mouth of the San Lorenzo River. Shaman's Vision Quest (later Merlin's Forest) was constructed exclusively for the movie and taken down once filming had completed. The stairs young Adelaide walks down to get to the fun house were also just built for the movie and no stairs exist there in reality. Other notable movies filmed at the boardwalk over the years include Bumblebee, Chasing Mavericks, Dangerous Minds, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, The Lost Boys and Sudden Impact.
