Pacific Plunge

Pacific Plunge is a 44-foot exhilarating drop tower that leaves riders feeling weightless while providing a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. The Plunge features two, 5-seat benches that lift riders 90 feet over Santa Monica Bay and render riders in a state of momentary flight before plunging towards the Pier deck.
