4.0
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Santa Clarita
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. For Six Flags Magic Mountain and beyond, use our Santa Clarita day trip planning site to get the most from your Santa Clarita vacation.

  • Quite different from standard Disney last funny until the queues and stores, this park should be just for lovers of roller coaster. Of averages to radicals, has something for everyone. After a few stopped to walk with fear of not being able to drive to go back! Go in a pretty radical and leave fool toast ...

  • This Park is for anyone who likes Rollercoasters. Most of them are too radical. It's not like Disney who has experiences until the queues, but well worth the visit.

  • The park is located right off the 5 fwy about 35 miles north of LA. Parking is vast and trams run every few minutes to pick up and drop off from lot. This is a fun place for those who love rollercoast...  more »

  • Good times for thrill seekers! The rides are awesome!! Go on a busy day though, and you'll be stuck in an hour long line. If you brought good company, you may not even notice. Food options are decent and not priced too bad. Sadly only one water ride left, so hopefully you're not there on a hot day. All in all good times. Not for the non-courageous or the weak of heart!
  • Great place for Thrill Seekers. During the week almost all rides are open. Can get a little crazy with all the crowds. Great deal on their annual pass. Food and atmosphere is really good. Parking somewhat far from the entrance but they have a shuttle that shuttles you to the front entrance.
  • 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. 2018 saw the return to a 365 day opening schedule, but the hours are horrible. 6 PM closing on weekdays! Weekends remain at 9 PM. 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.
  • We've been season pass holders for decades. Obviously this is one of our favorite parks. More awesome thrill rides and roller coasters here than anywhere else we've seen. I would highly recommend getting here as early as possible and plan out your day. Hit the big, popular rides early to avoid the longer lines later. Since it does get rather warm here, hit up one of the water rides early and let the evaporation keep you cool. And don't forget to use plenty of sunscreen and to keep yourself well hydrated.
  • The rides were great as usual. However towards the end of the night, we rode Twisted Colossus and it almost ruined our night. We placed or stuff in the black bins like in every other ride, but when we came back everything was moved and wet. We found our bag but we couldn't find our picture we had just bought the ride before. I understand the park is not reliable for our belongings but the employees were rude and we're telling us to exit when they could obviously see we were looking for something. Another woman was also looking, someone took her entire bag. We eventually found our picture, with no help of the employee, and it was wet but luckily it didn't get to the actual picture. They bag was wet and the holder was wet too. Everything turned it fine but it just left a sour taste.
