The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is offering unlimited rides on its Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster for the rest of the year. The goal of the free rides is to break the million-rider mark for 2010. Buy one ticket at the regular price of five dollar and you can ride the historic wooden coaster all day long until Dec. 31. The millionth rider will get a commemorative coin. The Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster needs about 12,000 riders from now until the end of the year to reach the million rider mark.
