What are the best rides at Six Flags Magic Mountain?There are so many different kinds of rides available, it’s difficult to pick a favorite! Some rides you shouldn’t miss include Superman: Escape from Krypton, which was the first roller coaster to reach 100mph (160kmph), Tatsu, which features the world’s largest pretzel loop, and Twisted Colossus, which is the world’s longest racing coaster. Roller coaster enthusiasts would also say that X² is among the world’s best rides. It was the world’s first 4th dimension roller coaster, where the seats of the coaster change their pitch independently of the main chassis. It’s definitely a unique ride, and often has the longest queues. Other awesome rides (which are roller coasters) include CraZanity, the tallest pendulum ride in the world, and Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, a free fall drop ride where riders fall 400 feet (122m) and reach speeds of 85mph (137kmph).
What age group is the amusement park designed for?Although there are 14 rides and attractions for younger children, the majority of the rides are described as being ‘for thrill seekers’ and have taller height restrictions. There’s more to do for older guests, and the DC superhero and Looney Tunes branding might not be as appealing for all small children - for children under 4 you might be better off at Disneyland or Universal Studios, which dedicate more time to attractions and themes the whole family can enjoy together. Six Flags Magic Mountain is famous for having the most roller coasters in the world and is something of a pilgrimage site for roller coaster fans from around the world - most of whom are adults. That being said, kids will enjoy gentler rides like Daffy’s Adventure Tours or the Grand American Carousel, they can explore the Looney Tunes Lodge, or meet Bugs Bunny and his friends at a Meet & Greet.
Are there shows or other events?At the moment there aren’t any shows in the park, but you can meet characters from DC’s Justice League (including Superman, Wonderwoman, and Batman) and Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang.
How long should I plan to spend at the park?There are over 40 rides in the park, so it’ll take you a whole day to get through most of them! On busy days it might be impossible to try everything out, but if you plan your route through the park in advance and decide to invest in a Flash Pass then you should be able to try most of the rides available.
