Six Flags Magic Mountain, Santa Clarita
(4/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
For a day of thrilling rides on some of the country's fastest roller coasters, visit Six Flags Magic Mountain. Featuring nine themed areas, the park contains nine zones each with its own distinct rides, attractions, and food venues. You can choose to spend a day in the American wilderness, visit a world filled with comic book superheroes, or attend a county fair atmosphere packed with carnival-style games. The park's roller coasters offer rides suitable for all ages, from low-speed train trips through scenic landscapes, to hair-raising plunges off a 15 m (50 ft) waterfall. Visit the movie-inspired section to catch live-action stunt shows, drive bumper cars, or traverse six upside-down turns (while standing up) on 1,300 m (4,300 ft) of steel track. A visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Santa Clarita travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • A must-go if you like emotion and adventure. It´s more for adults or teenagers, but I saw some brave kids there. I tried only the most exciting roller coasters and my favorite was X2, really extreme! ...  more »

  • Best place no doubt about. Been here many times that I own a gold pass and i will always have a good experience in this place. Tickets and season passes a more fair than other attractions places. Great for families, school, groups of friends, and couples. Food can be pricey just like any other park attraction but with a dining pass, the food can be free. Great to visit in the summer specially hurricane harbor which is right next to six flags. They have their own Halloween events and a must go in the Christmas season. Overall it's an amazing place to go!!!
  • Magic Mountain is the best value amusement park in Southern California. The season pass is great for anyone who lives within an hour drive. Coupled with a parking pass and a dining pass, you have a fully paid weekend vacation for the family for a whole year. The rides are on the intense side, but there is a kiddie park for the young ones. Food is your average park fare, and nothing special. Employees can be wonderful or surly, depending on your luck. They are teenagers, after all. I have been coming here since the 90's. The quality of the park has improved a lot since then. Definitely a family friendly place.
  • Fantastic park for cheap thrills. Considering the premium quality of the attractions, the price is a bargain (considering nearby Knott's berry farm being smaller and Disneyland costing far more as comparisons). The season pass beverage cups and dining passes are fantastic values for people planning to visit more than a few times a year. We happen to drive by about one a month anyway so it's a killer deal for my family.
  • So I had a blast while I was there. They aren't very accommodating however. The no outside food or drink is kind of ridiculous, and they need to figure a way to not allow in the ghetto crowds. The fastpasses could definitely be included in the ticket price like Disneyland. But the fact that platinum allowed me to skip the lines almost completely on a super busy day, I'm not knocking it too much. But still. $250 for one day is a lot.
  • I went for Fright Fest. I had an amazing time! The rollercoasters are horrifyingly amazing. The scare zones were so creative and fun (I don't scare easily). If a go back to LA, this is a go-to. Only concerns were the extremely long lines (some went faster than others) and that I wasted $8 on a transferable locker but it wasn't necessary at some of the rides. I'd definitely just buy a locker as I need it unless I'm going to be at the park all day and night.
