- This mini-amusement park provides the centerpiece of the Santa Monica Pier. The park itself comprises a large Ferris wheel, a dragon swing, a small roller coaster, an action ride theater and a number of other rides geared towards children. A host of free shows can also be seen here, including concerts on Sunday nights, karaoke, animal shows and more. Built in 1988 after a storm destroyed the end of the pier, the park has been the center of pier activity ever since. Park schedule varies widely according to time of year and holidays; be sure to check the Web site or call for specific day information.
