TICKETS

Full-day admission at the park’s ticket booth is $76.99/adults, $51.99/kids 48”/ 122 cm. and under as well as seniors aged 55 and older. Kids age two and under are free of charge. You can save significantly on your admission if you buy online—at press time, a one-day ticket is just $51.99/adults online if bought at least five days in advance. Season passes may be a good deal if you plan a multi-day visit or think you’ll return again soon—prices start at $76.99, which gives you admission year-round to all Six Flags theme parks. Something else to consider, especially in the busy season, is a Flash Pass, which reduces your wait time for select attractions by allowing you to reserve your ride time. A Flash Pass starts at $40 for the first person, and there are a limited number of Flash Passes available each day, so arrive early if you’re interested.

TIPS & NOTES

Try to visit the water-based attractions earlier in the day, when lines are shorter. Coaster lines get shorter in the afternoons.

Here’s a fun bit of trivia: Six Flags Magic Mountain was the infamous “Walley World” in the movie “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” which came out in 1983.

Some attractions ban backpacks. Consider using lockers for your stuff instead—you’ll find lockers near the park entrance and at attractions that have backpack restrictions or are water-based.

Thanks to the park’s hilly terrain, you’ll be walking up and down inclines throughout your visit. Plan to take it a little slower to avoid getting overly tired.

At 900 feet above sea level, this park is hot during the summer. It’s also relatively unshaded, even in many of the queue lines. Your sun exposure increases by 4% here compared to a location at sea level. Be sure to bring hats and waterproof sunscreen, but be sure to stow your hat when you ride a coaster. That said, this park can get cool in the evenings, even during the summer, thanks to its location. Be sure you’ve got a light jacket if you plan to stay late.

This is not the best park for little ones. More than 60 percent of the rides have height restrictions, and those that don’t just aren’t that great. Besides, the thought of pushing a stroller up those hills makes our backs hurt.

Why are we so negative about this park? It simply doesn’t appeal to us. We’re spoiled by Disney’s quality and attention to detail. And as we’re not coaster fans or thrill-seekers, this park has little to tempt us. If, however, you are really interested in this park and just aren’t finding enough information, please let us know (see page ) and we’ll consider expanding this section in the future.
