The prices are really high for so few ride options, but it's a must for the pier and they know that. The employees are typical young kids who clearly hate their job, just like any other park like this. BUT the coaster is more fun than you would think and the Ferris-wheel is absolutely wonderful! We went during the week... More

Not big on rides and they are smaller in scope anyway. The fun is in the arcade and carnival booths, walking over the ocean on a warm evening and chilling. Outside, there is a real iced custard shop that is fab. This is an old time California experience. Good for the kids.

A great walking area in and around the pier. Shops, places to eat, walk, bike and take in a great sunset. Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and easy access to the beach.

This is one of those places you have to say you've been. What else is there to be said...it's a fairground, on a pier, on Santa Monica Beach, at the end of Route 66. Yep, go, have fun and tick that box! Good fun, good eats...GREAT sunsets!

A good park on the Santa Monica Pier for children to enjoy their time. It does not have rides for toddlers as such.

Lots of people so be warned it gets very busy on weekends. Not a huge amount of rides but enough to keep the kids entertained for a couple of hours. Several places to eat or buy an expensive souvenir. Be sure to watch the sunset from here.

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.
