Pacific Park in Santa Monica Plays Host to 5,500th Birthday Party

Santa Monica, CA, USA -- From Santa Barbara to San Diego families have come to the world-famous Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier to celebrate their child’s birthday. In fact, Pacific Park has now hosted more than 5,500 birthday parties at the two-acre amusement park since January 1996.

Jolene Perry brought her daughter Jewel, 7, all the way from Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., to celebrate her recent birthday at Pacific Park along with 14 kids. Perry said the best part of the experience for the children was definitely the rides. “This was Jewel’s first and only choice. We came specifically to Pacific Park for her birthday party. It was terrific to have all the kids on the rides together,” Perry said. “The cabana was an excellent location for the party and a central location for the kids to meet throughout the day. Pacific Park’s staff was terrific, the service was great and the birthday party exceeded all expectations.”

Pacific Park offers families the perfect ocean view birthday party location for children along with its 12 amusement park rides, 18 midway games and variety of attractions.

“Pacific Park is all about family fun and what better way for kids to enjoy their birthday than having a great time on the amusement park rides and playing the midway games,” says Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at PacificPark on the Santa Monica Pier. “Parents can also join in the fun by riding the family-share rides with the kids or simply watching them have fun while relaxing in the seaside party cabana.”

Beginning at a very low and reasonably priced cost per child, Pacific Park presents four birthday party packages that are family-friendly and stress free including the standard Inkie Package, $30 per child, Pier Fun Package, $35 per child, Ultimate Beach Package, $45 per child, and Premium Pacific Package, $65 per child.
