Pacific Park is hitting “nothin’ but net” with Dads this Father’s Day with a free round of play at the new “Mini Hoops” basketball game on Sunday, June 16 from 10 am to 11 pm.

To win a prize or simply for bragging rights, dads are challenged to score a basket by swishing a five-inch-diameter mini-basketball through a nine-inch-diameter steel rim with an eight-loop net.

A father simply needs to travel to Mini Hoops in the midway games area and notify the game personnel that he is a Dad and Pacific Park will stamp his hand and provide a complimentary free round of Mini Hoops.

“Mini Hoops was a slam dunk when we were looking to celebrate Dads at Pacific Park this year,” says Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Guests are sure to have fun with Mini Hoops and the many other games, attractions and rides throughout the Park on Father’s Day and right through the summer.”

In addition to Mini Hoops, Pacific Park offers 17 midway games including Top Glow, Wac-A-Mole, Tub Toss, Coastline Cat Rack, Riptide Ring Toss, Roller Derby, P.O.P. A Lot, Water Race, Beach Bash, Fire Ball, Balloon Pop Race, Long Range Basketball, and attractions featuring Gyro Loop, Beach Bounce, and the Pacific Peak Climbing Wall.

Along with the world-famous Pacific Wheel Ferris wheel, Pacific Park’s 12 amusement park rides feature 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.
