There are three ways to purchase multi-day passes for Pacific Park’s 12 amusement park rides. The 3 Day Pass is good for unlimited rides for 3 consecutive days; the Weekday Annual Pass is good for unlimited rides Monday-Friday for an entire year; and the Premium Annual Pass grants pass holders unlimited rides all 365 days the Park is open.
Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier is LA’s only admission-free amusement Park. Guests can come and go as they wish only paying for the rides they want. Some guests enjoy the freedom of purchasing an Unlimited Ride Wristband which permits unlimited entry on all 12 rides for a whole day. That means you can ride the thrilling West Coaster in the morning, then return in the evening to enjoy the sights and sounds from up high on the Pacific Wheel.
For guests planning to be in the Santa Monica area more frequently, Pacific Park offers three different multi-day passes:
The 3 Day Pass is a popular option for visitors staying in Santa Monica for the weekend, or guests who want to experience the rides at different times all weekend long. The 3 Day Pass starts the day you purchase it at the ticket booth. You’ll receive an unlimited ride wristband to enjoy at the Park that day and a card to bring back the next two days to redeem for your wristbands. The pass is valid for use for the next two consecutive days after purchase. If you purchase your pass on a Friday night, you can return Sunday morning to enjoy the Park when it’s less busy, or ride three days in a row for a thrilling weekend of rides and fun.
If visiting for more than a weekend, consider an annual pass. The Weekday Annual Pass is valid Monday – Friday all year long. This a great option for families that visit Santa Monica during the week to beat the crowds, or for camps or schools looking for daytime activities to keep campers busy. Each pass has a cool lanyard so you can walk around the Park like a real VIP accessing rides without ever going back to the ticket booth.
For visitors looking for no restrictions, the Premium Annual Pass works just like the Weekday Annual Pass but is also valid on weekends. That’s 365 days of unlimited rides including the world-famous Pacific Wheel. The Premium Annual Pass is ideal for visitors who frequent Santa Monica on weekends or those who want as few restrictions as possible.
Both the Weekday Annual Pass and the Premium Annual Pass feature the pass holder’s photo so our operators can recognize you. The passes also unlock lots of other perks at the Park including exclusive deals on food & drink and a 20% discount at Pier Gear, the Pier’s premium gift shop.
The 3 Day Pass and Annual Pass can be purchased at any Pacific Park ticket booth during the Park’s operating hours.
Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier is LA’s only admission-free amusement park, and the only amusement park located on a pier in Southern California. If unlimited rides aren’t for you, you can always pay as you go. Rides are priced individually, ranging from $5-$10 per ride all purchased at the ticket booth.
A few experiences not included with the wristbands or passes are Gyro Loop, the game where you try to flip upside down in your seated car, and the midway games which are all priced to pay-as-you-go.
Pacific Park is open every day of the year, but operating hours may vary due to private events or weather. Please check www.pacpark.com/hours prior to visiting.
