Pacific Park is the little amusement park that could. It's what every beach city should have. Located on the Santa Monica Pier, this local gem includes a roller coaster, lots of games, cotton candy and the nation's first solar-powered ferris wheel. The ferris wheel at dusk is a must. The lights are a glow, the views of the Santa Monica mountains, Pacific Ocean, City of Santa Monica and beach are second to none. You can stroll the Park for free. Tickets for the rides are all very affordable and family passes are available. It's a fun outing for all ages. Even the City of Santa Monica staff chose this location for their annual holiday parties! It's where the locals enjoy going, too!

My boyfriend and I are here from miami celebrating my bday and anniversary. It felt like the best date night ever. It is so beautiful at night. You get a view of the pier AND pacific park. The arcade is alright. Games outdated. It was still fun though. The rides were fun. Carnival games were fun too. Its like a mini fair. Definitely going back before we leave.

The rides looked really fun. We sent our nephew on them, and he loved them. I thought the pricing was appropriate for the location. No entry fee, just a ride fee. The only thing I didn’t like was the condition of the pier. The boards were very uneven and difficult to push a stroller over. It looked like they were beginning a year-long process for repairs and upgrades. I would like to come back after it’s done to re-review. Other than that, it was a very pleasant visit.

Our family of 8, 4 adults and 4 kids 2-6 stopped off here on our way from Long Beach to Santa Barbara during our recent vacation. Lots of fun rides for kids and beautiful beach and views to make the experience extra pleasant. We didn't realize you could park right there by the venue, so we wasted a bunch of time driving around the busy city blocks before figuring out that parking was not only close by, but also reasonable!! We recommend this as a fun afternoon adventure for the family.

Excellent amusement park for those who don't like really scary rides. Roller coaster was fun but not scary, Dragon boat was the most thrill. Ferris Wheel views were to die for! Be sure to book ahead online or get AAA discount for wristband.
