Great Location - Expensive!

This is an amazing location for the park but everything here was super expensive! A fast food salad cost me $15USD!

I wish I had better things to say about the park. The quality of the rides, the bang for your buck. It's such a beautiful location. I made the mistake of getting the unlimited passes which were expensive and after waiting 20 minutes for each ride, we'd had enough. My advice, buy individual tickets for the Ferris Wheel and enjoy... More

A good place to walk and peoplewatch, but I wouldn't touch anything. Grimy and early morning walks you will be surrounded by homeless people. One to miss - just stay on the promenade.

Special for this amusement park? The Ferris Wheel runs by solar power, that what it says in the history text. This amusement park is located in the middle of the pier and it is on the extended boardwalk. It looks just like any other amusement park you see elsewhere.

Not many rides to choose from here, mostly kiddie stuff. I know it's on a pier and there isn't much space, but something for adults would be nice. However, even if there was a good selection of adult rides, I still would not pay what they are charging to ride them.

This was a lovely area with great views of the ocean and beach and access to the pier. The vendors had something for everyone.

My kids always beg to go to Pacific Park whenever we are in LA. The kids love it. The Ferris wheel is a must with great views. Great rides which are all suitable for young kids (6 & 9). Kids always seem to win a stuffed toy from the games.

So glad we paid the money to ride these two. $48 for three of us, but happy we decided to do it! Lots of fun.
