A Look At The Refurbished Inkie’s Scrambler At Pacific Park On Santa Monica Pier:

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica recently refurbished Inkie’s Scrambler — the 12-car fast-paced swirling ride that takes guests on a series of roundabout moves and sidesplitting rotations of more than 11 revolutions per minute.

The restored ride now sports a shiny new chrome finish, brightly colored period decals, and detailed lighting.

First introduced in Atlanta in 1938, the Scrambler hit its stride in 1955 and became a popular amusement park ride alongside the Ferris wheel and carousel.

Inkie’s Scrambler debuted at Pacific Park in 2000 as a family-fun ride for both parents and children that accommodates up to three riders per car.

The height requirement to ride alone is 48 inches and to ride with a chaperone is 36 inches.

“With the re-launch of Inkie’s Scrambler, I encourage everyone to visit the park and ride it again for the first time,” said Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Spring Break is also one of the best times of the year for family fun at Pacific Park. It’s perfect outdoor weather and everyone has fun in the sun while playing in the park, on the pier and at the beach.”

Pacific Park will be in full family-fun mode with all 12 rides and 18 midways games in operation each day beginning at 11 am.

Pacific Park also features a roster of family-share rides that include Inkie’s Air Lift, SIG Alert EV, Sea Planes, Inkie’s Pirate Ship, and Inkie’s Wave Jumper.
