If you're a roller coaster fan, California's Six Flags Magic Mountain is the place to go. The 262-acre park, located in Valencia (north of Los Angeles) has a world record 19 roller coasters.
About Six Flags Magic Mountain
Six Flags Magic Mountain is divided into nine separate themed areas, each with its own rides, restaurants and shopping outlets. These include Six Flags Plaza, Baja Ridge, Colossus County Fair, Cyclone Bay, DC Universe, High Sierra Territory, Rapids Camp Crossing, Samurai Summit, and the Movie District.
Highlights of any visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain include Full Throttle, the park's newest roller coaster, which runs both forward and backward; Colossus, the park's twin wooden roller coasters; the vintage Grand Carousel; and the Riddler's Revenge, the fastest and highest stand-up roller coaster in the world.
Of course, Six Flags Magic Mountain isn't just about rides and roller coasters. You can also see a live action stunt show, meet the Looney Tune characters in person, and even be a part of a movie or television commercial, as the park is frequently used by Hollywood producers.
In addition to the regular attractions at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the park hosts a full calendar of special events, including a July 4th celebration with fireworks and the winter Holiday in the Park event.
