Fodor's Review

Built on Santa Monica Pier, extending over the bay, this small amusement area harkens back to the days of the grand Pacific Ocean Park (1957–67). Its attractions include a tame coaster, a large Ferris wheel, and a handful of rides that wildly satisfy the under-6 crowd. This isn't squeaky-clean Disneyland, so expect some litter and watch your personal belongings. Since the pier is riddled with nails and splinters, opt for sneakers over flip-flops.
