Daytona Beach adds a Boardwalk roller coaster

Daytona Beach adds a Boardwalk roller coaster


A roller coaster, called The Sandblaster, is now operating at the Daytona Beach boardwalk near the Daytona Beach Pier next to the go-carts and ferris wheel.     

Operating hours are 10AM to midnight except that Friday and Saturday it will be open until 1AM.  The coaster, called “Sand Blaster” was purchased in 2012 from a closed amusement park in Delaware.  The Sand Blaster has about 2700 feet of track and drops of about 65 feet.  It is about 85 feet tall.  


The Daytona Beach boardwalk runs parallel to A1A on the beach from the Bandshell to the pier.  There are lots of amusements, restaurants and things to do there in addition to going to the beach.  Go fishing off the pier or play in the arcade or take in a movie at the ocean Walk Shoppes.  Visit the Daytona Beach boardwalkweb site for more information.  

The SandblasterThe Daytona Beach Bandshell is on the Worlds Most Famous Beach in front of the Ocean Walk Village on Atlantic Ave. (A1A) between Seabreeze Blvd. and Main Street.  The Bandshell was built of coquina in 1937 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Friday and Saturday night concerts and fireworks are featured through the summer.  

Enter the Bandshell through the Ocean Walk Village from A1A or the overpass from the Parking Garage on Earl St.

Hello Al,

I think that ride just might make you dizzy. :-)

Looks like a lot of fun though.

Have a great day in Ormond by the Sea my friend.

best, Clint McKie

I am a rollercoaster wuss.  Went on a kiddie sized one and decided after that I would never do an adult version.

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog and to comment Scott, Clint, Larry & Sheila and Chris Ann, I appreciate your comments and support.  Have a great day.

Scott, thanks, yes the boardwalk area is being built up again, come on down.

Clint, thanks, yes it sure does look like fun.

Larry & Sheila, thanks, yes there was a coaster there years ago.

Chris Ann, thanks, I'm just too old for these things now, I would rather stay on the ground and watch.
