Pacific Park

Located on the world renowned Santa Monica Pier in Southern California, Pacific Park is a family-friendly theme park that offers an array of rides, midway games, shopping and specialty food outlets against a backdrop of endless views.

Attractions at the Park include Beach Bounce and Gyro Loops. Beach Bounce is a popular attraction that offers visitors a fun-filled bungee experience by sending them 24 feet into the air while twisting in full-tilt flips and bouncing on a spring-loaded trampoline. Gyro Loops is a two-seater, 360-degree-turning and tumbling ride in which players use a joystick to control their speed while rotating, flinging, and fun-wheeling in circles.
