Children are in for a special treat when they ride the Frog Hopper at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier each day through Dec. 25 – a lifelike Santa Claus will be taking center seat every ride.
From 12 p.m. to close each day, Santa Claus will hop into a snow flurry each time the over-the-ocean children’s ride springs into action.
Frog Hopper leaps young riders straight up and down to heights of nearly two stories providing a feeling of weightlessness and excitement.
Along with Santa bobbing on the Frog Hopper, a curtain of snow will also fall each time the West Coaster roller coaster departs the station, creating a sense of holiday excitement for riders and guests throughout Pacific Park and on the Santa Monica Pier.
“Santa is set to provide family fun this holiday season on Frog Hopper, one of Pacific Park’s most popular kids’ rides,” said Jeff Klocke, Director of Marketing and Sales at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “With snow falling at the Frog Hopper and roller coaster station, the forecast will be sunny skies with snow flurries and broad smiles all season long.”
Admission to Pacific Park is free.
The price for an individual Frog Hopper ride is $3 for children 3-9 and roller coaster rides are $5 each. Pacific Park’s best value is the all-day wristband, providing unlimited use of rides, at $15.95 for guests 7 years and below and $21.95 for guests 8 years and older.
