Made by flash-freezing ice cream in liquid nitrogen, Dippin’ Dots have been a fun way to enjoy ice cream since the mid-nineteen 80’s when they were first declared “The Ice Cream of the Future.”

Dippin’ Dots is a unique American original that has been served in amusement parks and entertainment destinations for over 30 years, made from real ice cream that is cryogenically frozen to create a fun and memorable treat. Dippin’ Dots come in a variety of flavors. They can be purchased at either Dippin’ Dots stands located inside Pacific Park or at Scoops Ice Cream and Treats located in the seaside dining plaza.
