Six Flags Magic Mountain

Valencia, CA.

Park Synopsis

General Information

Built in 1971 by the some of the same people that brought you Sea World.(I won't go into details, I will put in links to other sites that will do that.) The park originally was designed to be family oriented. Six Flags bought Magic Mountain in 1979. In the late 80's Magic Mountain swayed from a Family park to an all thrills park, racing to be the "extreme park" and continued that tradition until recently. Now in 2012, Magic Mountain has returned to the dark side and will resume it's path towards it's extreme park goal and once again ignore families and pursue teenager money. Most of the park is dilapidated and un-inspiring.

If you're a family, there isn't much for you to do there. You can either sit all day with your young children in Bugs Bunny World or ditch the kids and ride giant rollercoasters. They have removed most of the family rides. If you are single or traveling with older teens, then this is the park for you.

Tips and tricks

Get a photo pass and keep it handy. See & buy all photos online. Read the "Extra fee" survival guide!
If you go at opening. Run to X2!!! There will be a 2 hour wait the rest of the day. Flash pass is not accepted on X2. Don't buy Flash passes, unless it's really crowded & you don't think you'll be able to ride anything.
Buy all tickets online, its cheaper. Beware online fee! Avoid photo takers behind the ticket booths, better backgrounds once your inside.
Definitely get a season pass. You also get a coupon book. Open all bags and empty pockets before you get to security check.
One adult should buy the xtreme pass. You get free parking, free Flash passes (you can share), and 25% off at Flags.

Smokers, smoking areas are by most restrooms. Not too shabby.

Eat at the Mooseburger Lodge. It has the best food and Anima-tronic animals. The best place to see characters is the entrance to Bugs Bunny World and around the Entrance Plaza and Valencia Falls.
