Theme Parks in California
You're likely to never run out of places to explore and things to do in California. But even with all of those options, sometimes you just want to tune everything out and scream your head off on a roller coaster. Thankfully, LA has no shortage of amusement parks. Whether you're seeking thrills or a family-friendly day out, plan a visit for one (or more) of these amusement parks in Southern California, from an old movie studio in the hills outside Hollywood to a pier by a Santa Monica beach.
Santa Monica - a carnival style amusement park located on the Santa Monica Pier. A Ferris wheel offers spectacular views of the Santa Monica Bay, the Pacific ocean, Santa Monica, Ocean Park and Venice Beach. There are carnival games, a roller coaster and other rides. The Go Los Angeles card (buy online) includes Pacific Park.
Open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day, the Griffith Park Train Rides are one of Los Angeles's most fun and affordable family attractions. At Griffith Park and Southern Railroad you travel over one mile of track, across a bridge, through a forest and the Old Western Town.
