“Great Little Amusement Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This amusement park was great for my son. He loved the rides and the price of the wrist band was well worth it. The people who operated the rides seemed friendly and cheerfull. My son is 7 and he was able to enjoy all the rides without a problem. Great place to kill a few hours.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

It's a section of the Santa Monica pier that has a huge arcade and rides like a Ferris wheel and a small roller coaster. The rides and arcade do cost money but worth it. The views from the Ferris wheel are stunning!

“Very crowded but beautiful view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

We purchased a Groupon for 4 unlimited ride wristbands for $44. This is the only way I would do it. The regular price seemed pretty pricey for the rides they offered. It was VERY crowded so we were able to go on a few rides. The Ferris wheel was very romantic for my boyfriend and I. The traffic getting to the parking area was HORRIBLE.
