World Famous Pier 39

Taking a visit to San Francisco soon? You won’t want to miss your chance to take a trip to the world famous Pier 39.

Explore All There Is To Do

Pier 39 is home to some of the best shopping, dining, and entertainment that San Francisco has to offer. During peak travel season, the pier can be bustling with street performers, artists, and more. You’ll find so much to do here, you can spend the entire day and 365Tickets USA has the scoop on what to expect.

Experience The Flyer

With a trip on The Flyer, you will truly see San Francisco like you’ve never seen it before. The ride combines motion seats, live action and computer-generated imagery that simulates flying. Throw in the addition of special effects and it really does feel real! You’ll soar high above the Golden Gate Bridge, down Lombard Street, the Redwood National Forest and much more.

Don’t Miss Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze

Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze is also a must stop as you journey around the pier. Located toward the middle of the pier, you’ll want to try this place out for sure! You’ll have to see if you can escape the endless mirrors. You’ll come across infinite hallways, endless circles and dead ends are you navigate your way through.

The San Francisco Carousel

Who can resist a good ole fashioned carousel ride? You can do that here too! The San Francisco Carousel is a hand painted masterpiece. You’ll find hand painted versions of some of the bay area’s top attractions including the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, Chinatown, Lombard Street, Alcatraz, and the sea lions on Pier 39. Of course, you’ll also have your choice of what animal to ride and you’ll have the pleasant organ music in your ears as you enjoy this gentle attraction. Make sure you make it a stop on your visit to Pier 39!

7D Experience

Looking for a taste of adventure? This is the spot for it. The 7D Experience is home to a dark ride and a laser maze challenge. The 7D experience’s newest dark ride experience, Carnival, takes you into the mind of a clown at an abandoned theme park. You’ll be tossed, pulled, and toyed around as you try to escape!

The laser maze is perfect for any member of the family. Think criminal as you try to navigate your way around crisscrossing laser beams. Can you beat your family and friends? You are on a race against the clock to make it through but be careful not to trip any wires! As you race, family and friends can watch you on a screen outside the attraction. Do your best to impress!

Free Things To Do

Looking for something free to do? Of course, you want to head over to the viewing area of the sea lions! Sea lions began arriving in San Francisco around 1989. They are a popular tourist attraction throughout the year. There is also a sea lion exhibit that is owned by the Aquarium of the Bay where you can get up close to interactive exhibits, videos, and presentations. You can also enjoy the overlook to see the sea lions from a higher vantage point.

After all that playing, you’ve probably worked up quite the appetite. The pier is home to fine dining, casual dining, and family style dining with 34 different restaurants to choose from. Grab a cone, sit down to some crab legs, and fully immerse yourself in all the pier action. Ready to go? Head over to 365Tickets USA to book your tickets.
