Visit a California classic and get access to unlimited rides and fun at the famous Pacific Park, an amusement park built right on the Santa Monica Pier over the Pacific Ocean.
Take a spin on the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel and enjoy the bird’s-eye-view of the surfers and ocean below, take a ride on the “West Coaster,” the park’s steel roller coaster of a thrill ride, get a feel for surfing on “Inkie’s Wave Jumper,” a rotating ride that simulates actual waves, and more.
Pacific Park highlights include:
- Inkie’s Wave Jumper: a surf simulation ride that rotates letting riders jump up and down and bounce as if they were actually riding a wave.
- Shark Frenzy: A new spin on the classic tilt-a-whirl. Hang on for a frenzy of excitement as you whirl around in the open mouth of great shark.
- West Coaster: the only West Coast, oceanfront, steel roller coaster located on a pier over the Pacific Coastline.
- Pacific Plunge: a 9-story tower ride that makes you feel completely weightless as it whizzes you 150-feet over the Santa Monica Bay in a 10-seat gondola before dropping you in a freefall.
- Frog Hopper: this ride bounces young riders straight up and down to heights of 18-feet taking some exciting plunges.
Take part in a little friendly-competition with some of the Park’s classic midway games like “Wac-A-Mole,” “Riptide Ring Toss,” “Soccer Kick,” and more (please note: games are pay-to play and not included with the Unlimited Ride Wristband). Winners can even take home prizes like giant plush and licensed sports gear. When you ready for a break from all the fun, recharge at one of Pacific Park’s seven different food outlets like Whac-a-mole Tacos, Scoops Ice Cream and Treats, and Beach Burger.
