Echo Park Swan Night Rides Offered Year Round

For Immediate Release:
Sept. 27, 2019

Los Angeles – The fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets – it’s just beginning! Wheel Fun Rentals is extending their Night Rides at Echo Park and offering LED lit swan boat rentals year-round!

What started out as a summer program has now become a more permanent offering. Due to popular demand, visitors and locals alike will be able to light up the lake 7 days a week, with Wheel Fun Rentals’ iconic swan pedal boats year-round! LED lights are mounted onto the sides and neck of the swans, creating an electrifying twilight experience that pairs perfectly with the Los Angeles night sky.

Night-time rentals are available now at Echo Park every evening from Sunset until 10 p.m. (Night Ride hours will change slightly throughout the year, so please check for up-to-date hours).  Pricing is $11 per hour for adults, and $6 per hour for children 17 years and under. Walk-ups are always welcome, and reservations for night rides can be made online for select days.  As the weather cools down, blankets will soon be offered for a cozy experience on the water.

“We’re always looking for new ways for guests to enjoy our products, and lighting up the boats really made for an entirely new adventure,” said Al Stonehouse, President of Wheel Fun Rentals. “The swan boat night rides have been so popular throughout the summer that we’ve decided to extend the program year-round.”

Having operated in Echo Park for the last two seasons, the Wheel Fun Rentals Swan Boats are a staple activity in the area for families, date nights, parties and more – including the Wednesdays with Wheel Fun program that provides free rentals to non-profit charities every week.  Riders can also play a fun Find and Seek Trivia game offered free with every rental.
