The Best Theme Park from my experience! – I normally don't take my time to write reviews, but I made an exception because I had to let everyone know how fun Six Flags is! I went there this past Sunday and I had the best time ever. The best ride was X2 which is unbelievable, but all the others like Terminator Salvation, Tatsu, and Goliath are close behind.
For a Sunday, it was not to packed. Maximum wait time was about 1 hr. and most rides were about 1/2 hr wait. I can't guarantee this for all Sundays. Go with people who love roller coasters.
The plus was the souvenir cup with free refills day of purchase with wristband and 99 cent refills any day thereafter and there were lots of places where you could refill them.
The park was clean and not dirty like other reviewers have stated. Overall, it was the best time I had at any theme park in So. Cal.
6 flags – this place is great fun for the day. the prices arent too bad, knotts its cheaper, but fewer things to do. they have all sorts of things for many age groups to do here
Don't Miss Out on Six Flags Magic Mountain! – Simply fantastic for roller coaster enthusiasts. The best roller coaster collection in the west! I've haven't ridden any coaster that tops their revamped X2. As for some reviewers who've labeled the park dirty, rundown, or unsafe, I didn't get that impression in the least. The park was clean, the staff was friendly, and never once did I feel the least bit unsafe. For a fun, thrill-filled day, I'd recommend this park to anyone. Not to mention their admission price of $30 (if you buy online) is an absolute steal.
Hurricane Harbor = long waits and bad management – Hi everybody;
I took by son to Hurricane harbor on a thursday two weeks ago. It was nice and hot and we were all ready for some splashing good fun. Unfortunately, the management of the slides created rediculous lines on every ride. The park wasn't at all crowded but the lifeguards that were controlling the rides slowed everything to a snails pace. I think the management there is so concerned with a law suit that they have taken all the fun out of the park!
For me a water park is slide down and have some fun and then jump out of the pool as fast as you can without the lifeguard blowing his wistle and then pretend you're not running back to the stairs. No running by the pool guys! The point of this is as many slides and splashes as possible per hour. At six flags we were in line for 20 minutes for a thirty second slide. What a joke. $50 a person for an afternoon of about 5 slides! It was like the equivalent of watching a baseball game without any hits. 95% waiting and 4% shelling out money for overpriced snacks and 1% having fun!
I give the park a D grade!
Worst theme park in southern california – This place is dirty, unsafe, and trashy. The whole park is uninviting and the employees uniform is ugly. The majority of their guests are unruly teenagers. The day I visited this place, there was a fight between two young men. Security was called to stop the fight. Also, I saw a teenager simulating sexual act on a statue. It was outrageous. What is wrong with those teens at the park. In addition, they lack language or social skills. Every other word that came out of their mouth was profanity.
Another problem I have is with their false advertisement with Coca Cola company. The 21.99 that is printed on the soda cans was so misleading. Many people thought it was the price to get into the theme park or hurricane harbor. However, 21.99 was the price to hurricane harbor only.
The Downhill Slide Continues.... – Magic Mountain used to be a great park even though I'm not a roller-coaster fan. The coasters are great and people love 'em, but lots of folks no longer choose to go to Magic Mountain because it's no longer a clean family park.
I live in the SCV and wouldn't dare being near the park after-dark. It's a great place for thugs and teens whose parents don't give a hoot about what their kids are doing or where they're going.
Rides are great and the transformation for Halloween is really cool, but I no longer feel safe and doubt I'll be going back until Six Flags works on restoring the park for the folks that have disposable income to spend: adults with families. No parent wants to take their kid to a place taken over by gangsters.
SAD to see it go – I worked at MM for eight years growing up. It was still to this day the best job I have ever had. On a recent trip back to the park with my kids I was shocked. The park is dirty, run down, and needs up dated. With so much money going into these rides every year why not skip a year and clean the place up. Make it a place where famalies want to go to. You already have the best rides around and the people will come back. Dirty park or not, but try focussing on the real issue. The people in your own community dont even want to visit anymore. How SAD is that. Clean it, Paint it,
Up date it, and then get enouhg security in the park to make it safe for people to enjoy it. And get rid of the water park. That is a waste.
If you want action.... – then this is the place to go....and not just see action, like you would in Universal Studios, but actually experience it!
I love this place but I love their rollercoasters the most. Other places only offer you one or two great rides that are worth fretting for before you get on the ride, but when I come here, I have to think twice about going on. There are long lines and over-priced food items and drinks, but what other theme park doesn't. There are not too many little kids or strollers attacking you and the rides are all worth it. Too bad it's just kinda far from where I live.
good park, bad service – I love the rides and the kids area - but am offended that for the amount I pay for the entrance and the high cost of bad food then we have to pay $15 for parking on top of it! Also, they have the worst customer service. Everyone working there seems to hate their job and hate that you're there making them actually work. I don't trust the people running the rides - they all look like hung-over, high school drop outs. If you can get past the customer service, don't mind the cost, eat before and after you attend the park, you will get a thrill of a lifetime with all the choices of rollercoasters. (As long as you don't go when they have a lot of rides closed and the lines are so long you only get to go on 3 or 4 the whole day.)
Mixed – As Magic Mountain's list of attractions expands, its aesthetic quality seems to decline. It's an inverse relationship that troubles me. As a rollercoaster enthusiast, I love going here, but as a human being with a sensitivity toward to the unkempt, I hate going here. Someone needs to reinvigorate this place.
