The scheduled operating hours above reflect the times the rides inside Pacific Park are scheduled to operate. Some rides may be closed or on rotation based on conditions and traffic on the pier. Other amusement park facilities, including the food court, may be open later based on demand. Hours are subject to change with little notice.

Hours and information are subject to change with little notice. Please plan ahead before visiting and check back often for updates and information. Find more information about the Pier’s limited operation.

Is the Santa Monica Pier Open?

Yes! The Santa Monica Pier is open daily from 6 AM – 10 PM, every day of the year including holidays. Individual pier businesses, including the rides at Pacific Park like the Ferris wheel, have operating hours that vary from day to day. See above for the operating scheduled for Pacific Park. All other businesses can be found on the Pier directory.

What are the hours for the Santa Monica Pier?

Rides run daily, weather permitting, and generally start around 12 Noon. A full schedule of ride operations is available above. Other businesses may post different hours.

Limited Operations

During off-peak months and on days when inclement weather is forecast, the Park sometimes goes into limited operation, particularly earlier in the day. This decision is usually made on a day-by-day basis contingent on the weather and number of people in the Park. Limited operation means we will have a limited number of rides, games, or food outlets open, or that we will have parts of the Park closed completely. Typically, limited operation means our family share rides and midway games will be in rotation and that we will have a limited number of food & beverage carts open. Our main dining options (Beach Burger, The Pacific Wheel Pizza Company, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and Scoops Ice Cream and Treats) and marquee rides (Pacific Wheel, Sea Dragon, West Coaster) are typically unaffected by these types of rotational operations.
