So glad we paid the money to ride these two. $48 for three of us, but happy we decided to do it! Lots of fun.

I found this amusement park to be at a wonderful location which makes it really accessable to larger masses. Therefore there is lot of public all year arround. Park itself is ok. They charge extra for some of the activities but you can choose your own thing or can also can buy a band that include most acitvities. But apart... More

Always fun to walk the pier, lots to see, though some souvenir places a rip off re prices, especially the worst shop that charged $27 for a Christmas tree ornament. No wonder people were shaking there heads reading their prices, and walking out. Rusty's restaurant is good.

There are some carnival type rides, and lots of games to play. It is like going to an old time mountain fair. You can actually walk around and browse and pay nothing, but if you want to ride any rides or play any games, you have to purchase tickets.

Great place to visit during the day and night. Lots off good places to eat and to have a drink - the arcade is really fun and the rides on the pier are very cheap.

Small area on the pier with games and roller coasters. Fun to walk through and play some bottle tipping games.

There is no admission to enter the park - it is free to walk right in. However, you do have to pay if you want to ride the rides. It was so crowded on the night we were there that we didn't want to stand in the lines for the rides. In fact, even the lines for funnel cakes were... More

There were lots of people in this amusement park. It's typical with rides, fast food and that carnival atmosphere. Fun but not all that different, (well other than the gorgeous views all around), from other amusement parks with large crowds.

We visited Pacific Park on a Friday night. Admission to the park was free. We went on the West Coaster ($8/person) and the Ferris Wheel ($8/person). You can purchase adult wristbands which give you unlimited rides for $30 ($18 for children under the age of 7). The line ups were really short and the waiting time was minimal. I highly... More

We took our two kids (12 and 15) here and they had a blast. It's a fun day trip if you're in the area, and the views of the Pacific are gorgeous.
