See reviews for Santa Monica Pier because Pacific Park is what the ride area is called. So-so and not terribly impressive although the beach and area views are lovely.

The Santa Monica pier is lively and vibrant. The scenic views from the rides are inspiring. Rides are average at best, but as is typical for a small carnival. Pricing is pretty high for the return on the rides, but if you are a tourist, it really is an iconic stop that should be experienced.

This is our second time visiting Pacific Park, and we have had so much fun both times! We bought ride passes that also included meal vouchers from Groupon. The food was good, and the tides were so much fun. The beach is easily accessible there at Pier of course, so we also spent time playing in the ocean. It was... More

It used to be a very sweet attraction prior to expansion. It's very crowded, noisy, not the greatest place to be during the day but nice to see the sunset from. I'm not into any rides the park offers but the giant Ferris Wheel. And that's where you should be to see the sunset.

This is a famous place to visit. You see it on TV a lot. There are places to eat and rides to ride. Good place for the family or a group of people. Visit Bubba Gump's to eat, fun.

....if you are into funfairs. Pretty, compact carnival. Giant Ferris wheel, small roller coaster and beautiful carousel, plenty of side shows and amusements for the whole family with the bonus of all being on the iconic Santa Monica Pier.

The Pacific Park is one of the center element of the Santa Monica Pier, so a must see if you ask me. It's not huge but if offers quite a lot of different rides, I can recommend the west coaster and the pacific wheel, from which you get the most beautiful view over Santa Monica and the beaches. You pay... More
