The rides seem quite tame and expensive but maybe it's because I was in six flags two days earlier ;)

Beautiful pier and rides for the kids and a nice walk on an iconic site with great oceans views for adults. The lights are beautiful at night. A great day out.

Overpriced rides but it's a must do if you are in Santa Monica. After all, how many amusement parks are on a pier like that...!

Pac Park according to their website have annual passes that can be used 365 days a year so I guess so. Times of opening and closing vary but online say 12-6 for December.
