These futuristic cars are equipped with neoprene-covered bumper tubes for safety while providing a hover-like experience.

Enjoy ocean spray breezes as you escalate up 55 feet (16.8 meters) above the pier. See spectacular views of the Santa Monica Bay and the Pacific Ocean as it trails from one end of the park to the other at 35 mph (53 kph)!
  • Inkie's Scrambler: This fast-paced swirling ride takes you on a series of roundabout moves and sidesplitting rotations at a speed of 11 rpm.
  • Sea Dragon: A swinging wooden ship with two lifelike dragon heads make you feel as though you’re sailing on the turbulent seas with the scariest of serpents.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Took my daughter and 5 of her friends to Pacific Park. She does not like extremely fast rides. This place hit the mark on fun and was amazing. Small enough to keep an eye on everyone and the unlimited wrist band was money well spent. I suggest spending the extra 10 on the food package. The portions were large enough that everyone was full. We took time to walk on the boardwalk to let our food settle before hitting the rides again. It also helps that it was a beautiful November day. Recommend for all ages.

I had so much fun. I could not get enough of the roller coaster and being able to see the beach from the rides was really cool.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

What a great way to spend the day on the pier. Great view of the beach from the Ferris wheel and a great value for the family. The day we went happen to have a free concert which was an added bonus.
