Moms To Ride Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel For Free This Mother’s Day:

The first 1,000 moms who visit the Ferris wheel at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier this Mother’s Day will ride for free and receive a free family photo.

To redeem this special offer, a mother simply needs to go to the Pacific Park ticket booth adjacent to the Pacific Wheel entrance and notify the ticket booth personnel between 11 am and 9 pm on Sunday, May 12.

 “A free ride on the Ferris wheel for moms is a picture perfect way to experience the beautiful 360-degree views of the Santa Monica coastline and Pacific Ocean,” said Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Pacific Park is set to provide an exciting photo finish to a great ride for mom on her special day.”

The Pacific Wheel is the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel featuring 160,000 energy-efficient LED lights that present dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment each evening. The eco-friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 75 percent greater energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.

The nine-story tall Pacific Wheel Ferris wheel, which stands 130 feet above the Pacific Ocean, first debuted in May 1996 with the opening of Pacific Park and was adapted as the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel in November 1998.

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier, LA’s only admission free amusement park, offers 12 amusement rides, 17 midway games and an oceanfront food plaza.

In addition to the Pacific Wheel solar-powered Ferris wheel, Pacific Park’s signature rides include The West Coaster, a steel roller coaster that races 55 feet above the Santa Monica Bay; and Inkie’s Air Lift Balloon Ride, the high-flying, family-sharing kids’ ride.
