After sweating at Six Flags Magic Mountain (be it due to the heat or the thrills), you can cool off next door at the 12-acre Hurricane Harbor water park. It’s open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in June–August, as well as on weekends in May and September. To get to the water park, follow the directions on page 168

We liked the Six Flags water park better than its sister theme park—it was clean and had plenty of activities for various ages. On the other hand, its attempt at a “treasure island” theme falls short (again, we’re too spoiled by Disney’s water parks in Florida) and there’s a serious lack of shade. Still, if you want to have fun in the water, this is hydromania heaven.

Hurricane Harbor features 14 different slides and water attractions. In Bonzai Pipelines, you wait for a trapdoor to open, then shoot down six stories. Lightning Falls is a set of three raft rides. Splash Islandis a 30,00-gallon kids play area. The Tornado slide is a six-story, 132-foot-long swirling raft ride. Bamboo Racer is a six-lane toboggan race slide. Black Snake Summit is the big daddy of the slides, with five different speed body slides. Reptile Ridge has five tamer body slides. Taboo Tower features three-speed body slides. Tiki Falls is a tamer raft ride. Lost Temple Rapids is a family raft ride. Forgotten Sea Wave Pool is a largish wave pool with two-foot-high waves. Castaway Cove is a water play area with little slides and a fortress to play in. Lizard Lagoon is a 3-acre play area for teens and adults with basketball hoops, water volleyball, and bamboo shade structures. River Cruise is a 1/3-mile-long lazy river. 

Food is available in several counter-service spots, such as Red Eye’s Kitchen, Tradewind Treats, and Paradise Snacks. There are also several picnic areas available.

Changing rooms are available free of charge. Standard lockers are $13 (or $15 for a large and $18 for a jumbo).

Swimwear with rivets, buckles, metal, or plastic ornamentation is not allowed on the body slides. We also suggest one-piece suits for modest females who want to slide and are not up for a wet wardrobe malfunction.

You may rent rafts for the day at Captain Buoy Raft Rentals. Life vests are provided at no charge. Many of the slides have a 48”/122 cm. minimum height requirement.

Shade is scarce here, so bring appropriate cover-ups, sunscreen, and hats.

Water park admission is $40.99/adults and $32.99/kids 48”/122 cm. and under, as well as seniors 55+. Combo tickets may be available for Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. Parking is $20 (same parking lot as Magic Mountain). Season passes also available starting at $76.99
