California Dreaming Santa Cruz Coaster by California Exotics
What's to love about this dreamily Dharmic device?
Its rapid-fire thrusting shaft pummels my pussy with up to three strokes per second — about 180 BPM on the highest speed. It's the vibrator equivalent of high cadence drum-and-bass with the sickest buildup and drop.
What a coaster drop indeed!
Those fluttery flaps on the external stimulator? Hoooooh.
California Exotics' clitoral vibrators have a history of making me squirt, and their Santa Cruz Coaster is also a wet wonder for me. The three tickling tips have some serious bite with their pinpoint perimeters, but not too much. They're pliable pals that work with my body instead of bullying under the hood.
And the broad, bulbous G‑spotting head fits against my pubic bone like a puzzle piece. Considering how fussy my G‑spot is about different dildo head shapes, I couldn't have asked for a better rabbit vibrator for my body.
All the elements synergize, hitting my clitoris from endless angles and staying in contact with minimal effort. Self-thrusting rabbit vibrators make sense. Once the Santa Cruz Coaster latches on, it's hands-free hedonism, baby!
Santa Cruz Coaster specifications & measurements
Okay, so this rechargeable silicone rabbit is a frenetic G‑spot jackhammer. But how do the thrusts measure up?
The California Dreaming Santa Cruz Coaster features 4.26" of insertable length when fully expanded.
Its accordion shaft contracts to 3.66", giving us a stroke length of 0.6". In other words, if you enjoy short but somewhat realistic thrusts, the Santa Cruz Coaster can give you that. My G‑spot (and sometimes A‑spot) is in love if you couldn't tell.
Its 2.5" long external stimulator fits a pretty wide range of clit-vag gaps. You can flex it outward if your anatomy's more spaced out. If your clitoral glans is closer to your vagina, you're in luck, too. The Santa Cruz Coaster at rest barely has any distance between the two prongs — meaning you'll get a pretty tight grip with it.
Its head's bulb is about 1.5" long by 1.6" wide, giving us ample surface area to knead the front wall. Note that there are small ridges on the tip, though. While I enjoy the textures on the silky silicone, not everyone will appreciate it.
Who would enjoy the Santa Cruz Coaster?
The Santa Cruz Coaster rabbit vibrator certainly isn't for every body, but its features come together beautifully against mine.
It's a good fit for those who:
- Have clit-vag gap on the short side OR prefer a tight grip
- Enjoy pinpoint stimulation and don't mind a little buzz
- Want INTENSE sensation
- Play in the bathtub (Yay, waterproof!)
- Their internal hot spots are slightly on the shallow side
My clit-vag gap is about average at one inch apart, while many would consider my G‑spot shallow. For me, it's at its most sensitive at about an inch-and-a-half inside.
The Santa Cruz Coaster's G‑spotting head and external vibrator are spaced super closely, clamping on to my pubic bone and clitoris. And since it's self-thrusting, I can leave it in place hands-free while it works its magic.(That's more than I can say for the renowned We-Vibe Nova 2, unfortunately. The original was fantastic, but the new one's hinging shaft is too loose to do much for me.)
Controls, functions, and settings
Three buttons independently control the Santa Cruz Coaster's two motors.
Settings you get with this thrusting rabbit vibrator:
- 3 steady thrusting speeds (135 – 180 BPM)
- 3 constant external vibration settings and 7 patterns
- 73, 78, 110 Hz frequency
- 3 out of the 7 rhythms are fast and consistent enough to be useful
This rabbit's vibrations are strong at those frequencies but can veer on the zingy side. Again, it's best for those who prefer a precise and piercing quality with their external stimulation.
The bottom button cycles through the vibration settings, the middle through the thrusting, and the top instantly shuts both motors off. The California Dreaming rabbit vibrators also contain chips to "remember" which setting it was last on.
Downsides of the California Dreaming Santa Cruz Coaster
There are two notable cons. First, its power is limited. 2.5 hours of charge gives you only 40 minutes on high (150 minutes on low).
And if it's low on battery, it occasionally stalls when I push super hard against my walls. But I'd have to be trying to stop it. A good 90% of the time, it's still a‑chuggin' along, even as my vagina clenches around it.With how overwhelmingly intense the orgasms can be, there's no way I'd be using the Santa Cruz Coaster for anywhere near 40 minutes straight.
The Santa Cruz Coaster can't match the Velvet Thrusters, but that's fair for everything it does at about half the price. When you consider other similarly-priced thrusters like the Maia Max/Monroe, the Santa Cruz Coaster still has vast vroom, variety, and reliability.
It's also not the quietest vibrator I've ever tried, but I'd say its noise level is proportional to its power. With how overwhelmingly intense the orgasms can be, there's no way I'd be using the Santa Cruz Coaster for anywhere near 40 minutes straight. 🙂
Santa Cruz Coaster vs. West Coast Wave Rider vs. Orange County Cutie
If you don't want the stimulation to be as intense, but the overall shape appeals to you, consider the West Coast Wave Rider instead.
How the West Coast Wave Rider compares:
- Its head curvature is a little less pronounced.
- The fluttering flaps are more flexible and rounded.
- It gyrates instead of thrusting — which I also enjoy a lot.
- The external prong's body isn't as close to the shaft at rest.
Overall, I still like the West Coast Wave Rider A LOT but would prefer the Santa Cruz Coaster's tighter clamping.
The Orange County Cutie is another good pick, with a G‑spotting tip that's relatively relaxed and aims slightly deeper. It would be a better fit for those who:
- Have anatomy slightly more spaced apart than mine
- OR are trying to go for A‑spot stimulation instead of G‑spot
- Don't care for the ribbing at the Santa Cruz Coaster's tip
My verdict on the California Dreaming Santa Cruz Coaster
California Exotics' California Dreaming vibrators offer a little something-something for a wide variety of bodies.
For my anatomy, the Santa Cruz Coaster is the absolute best-fitting rabbit available. You'll also likely love it if you're a pinpoint pressure princess with a shallow G‑spot and a short clit-vag gap.There's no such thing as the perfect rabbit vibrator, but the Santa Cruz Coaster is undeniably right for me. […] Considering my propensity to squirt […] every time I use it, my clit clearly likes something about this rabbit. 🙂
The caveat: I'd still recommend two separate toys instead of a rabbit if you're an absolute zealot for the rumble. California Exotics' external stimulators can be potent and splash aplenty, but they also won't give you a deep, basslike purrrrrrr.
(Again, the original We-Vibe Nova was lovely for its rich timbre, but the Nova 2's flexible shaft didn't do it for me.)
With how sharp the Santa Cruz Coaster's "ticklers" are, though, a little buzz is more than okay. Considering my propensity to squirt and stay in the continuous orgasm loop every time I use it, my clit clearly likes something about this rabbit. 🙂
Internally, the Santa Cruz Coaster's thrusting mechanism is surprisingly sturdy for its price. No, it probably wouldn't hold up to a user bottoming out their vagina. But for shallow G‑spotting, this self-thrusting rabbit keeps going and going and going, even when I clench.
There's no such thing as the perfect rabbit vibrator, but the Santa Cruz Coaster is undeniably right for me. When you find The One, you'll know.
Using thrusting toys is daunting for me I always worry they won't be strong enough.
I have found some really nicely priced sex machines that look promising but my best friend is worried that the motor won't last with heavy use… im thankful for that guy always being the practicality to my whimsy.
I'm gunna look through your posts for a sex machine review :^)
The ratio was not it for me…. The clit piece did not hit my clit at all! I was so disappointed because I was so looking forward to this toy… but I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one feeling this vag to clit ratio is on the smaller side…. Thanks for that!!
