SAN DIEGO, CA
At Mission Beach, it seemed like a mostly normal day with people enjoying Belmont Park and even hopping on the popular roller coaster. But there's a problem: that's not allowed yet in the State of California.
The Giant Dipper rollercoaster at Belmont Park had people riding Friday evening, just hours after officials with the city of San Diego had shut it down. Multiple visitors told NBC 7 they tried other rides in the park, too.
The closure news came as a surprise to Arizona tourists Elizabeth Sravensky and Kyle Kisthardt who had just stepped off the ride.
