Looff’s Lite-A-Line: A Shrine to Long Beach’s Amusement Past

Heading north on Long Beach Boulevard, away from the shoreline and bustle of downtown, a relic of the Pike’s past sits tucked between strip malls, fast food joints and used car dealerships. Loof’s Lite-A-Line’s fate has followed the path of the bouncing ball at the heart of its business. The “game of skill” that once was a hub for tourists visiting the Nu-Pike, found a new home when it bounced to its new location on the Boulevard in 2000.
