The Santa Monica Pier's ferris wheel is turning out the lights this week. But don't worry, it'll be back on after a $1 million upgrade. Santa Monica's Pacific Park Ferris Wheel is going dark starting Thursday, May 5 at 11 p.m., according to Curbed LA.

Those who wish to ride the wheel will still be able to, and in honor of the park's 20th anniversary on May 26, a different, single car will be lit up each night. The Park hopes to have the upgrade complete by the end of the month.
