Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier has launched PacPark Live! --

three new, live streaming, high-definition cameras of what's happening

in the Park, on the Wheel, and at the Pier.

The streams can be viewed at at bit.ly/pacparklivecams or on Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier’s homepage at www.pacpark.com and click the “View Our Live Web Cams” tab.

“We encourage everyone to take a look at these three unique cameras

with their amazing views that are now live on Pacific Park’s website,”

said Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “In addition to entertaining the

more that 6.5 million visitors annually to the Pier, we now look forward

to hosting thousands of unique visitors to the website to view the live

webcams.”

Website guests simply need to select which camera they would like to

watch and immediately begin enjoying live shots of their favorite

beachside locations featuring these panoramic views:

- Watch the Park shows sweeping 360-degree views of the

two-acre, oceanfront amusement park, north and south wave-breaking

beaches, the beautiful Santa Monica skyline and unparalleled seascape

shots from Malibu to the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

 - See the Wheel presents a stationary shot of the Pacific

Wheel, the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel, along with the

periodic passing of the West Coaster roller coaster in the foreground.

These signature rides are highlighted with a stunning backdrop of

beautiful sandy beaches and white-capped waves. Guests will also enjoy

the Ferris wheel’s 160,000 energy-efficient LED lights that present

dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment each evening.

 - View the Pier provides a bird’s-eye view of the exciting

activities toward the west end of the Pier associated with the Santa

Monica “Pier Renewal Project.” While a portion of the Santa Monica Pier

is under construction, Pacific Park is in full operation with its 12

amusement park rides, 17 midway games and over the ocean food plaza.

Additional information on the “Pier Renewal Project” is available at santamonicapier.org/pierrenewal.
