Pacific Park is regularly featured in news articles, vlogs, and the media. Below are our picks for the top news and blogs mentioning Pacific Park and the Santa Monica Pier for July – September, 2020.
“Miss Monster is popping up at iconic spots all over Los Angeles in support of Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” while also promoting a pandemic-appropriate message: Wear a mask. Starting Aug. 20, the “Masked Singer” activation features the show’s “Miss Monster” character at the Santa Monica Pier and taking over the famous Randy’s Donuts sign. The character also makes an appearance in Hollywood next to the large dinosaur character (currently masked for COVID) on top of at the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum.”
“The pier has a traditional setup stocked with a mini amusement park, aquarium, fairground games and cotton candy stands (okay, not free—but relatively cheap). Win your date a creepy stuffed animal at the games, or share some funnel cake while overlooking the ocean, then top it off with a kiss at the top of the Ferris wheel (go big or go home, friends).”
“The Pacific Park Wheel is the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel, and it’s located right on the Santa Monica Pier, offering incredible views of the ocean and the city. The 85-foot wide wheel has about 160,000 LED lights for colorful visual performances that make it exciting to see even if you aren’t going to go for a ride.”

“Best American Beach Destination: Santa Monica, CA: As the terminus of Route 66, it stands as the endpoint of America’s push westward, the sunny spot where the continent drops off into the Pacific. The sand is crowded with the Baywatch-esque bods of Southern California, the water is full of surfers (and barking sea lions!), and a lively carnival atmosphere carries on at the Santa Monica Pier. And is there a better place in the U.S. to watch a sunset?”

“The campaign? It’s called LA♥, and it’s all about sending some love to our hospitality industry in the face of the pandemic, and getting and about, locally and safely, as well. The Pacific Wheel will spotlight this mega-hearted campaign on Monday, Aug. 24. True, the rides found at Pacific Park on Santa Monica Pier remain closed, but the solar-powered Ferris wheel will glow with the campaign’s new symbol.”
“Author Beth Reekles has since confirmed on Twitter that several scenes were actually shot on location in LA. These include Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach, as well as the scene where Elle and Noah visited the iconic Hollywood sign.”
