See below for the Park’s scheduled operating hours for the day you plan to visit.
The Santa Monica Pier is open and accessible to the public year round, 24 hours a day excluding special events. Pacific Park opens 365 days a year. The Park’s operating hours vary by season and may change due to inclement weather or special events. Special event schedules sometimes change; please be sure to check back here or call us at (310) 260-8744 x0 for updates before visiting.
During off-peak months, the Park sometimes goes into limited operation Monday-Thursdays, particularly earlier in the day. This decision is usually made on a day-by-day basis contingent on the weather and number of people in the Park. Limited operation means we will have a limited number of rides, games, or food outlets open, or that we will have parts of the Park closed completely. Typically, limited operation during this time of year means our family share rides and midway games will be in rotation and that we will have a limited number of food & beverage carts open. Our main dining options (Beach Burger, The Pacific Wheel Pizza Company, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and Scoops Ice Cream and Treats) and marquee rides (Pacific Wheel, Sea Dragon, West Coaster) are typically unaffected by these types of rotational operations.
