Six Flags is one of the biggest theme park chains in the world. It currently operates and owns 21 theme parks in the United States of America and Mexico. One of its biggest parks is Six Flags Magic Mountain located in Valencia, California, which is north of Los Angeles. If ever you are in the Los Angeles area and you want the thrill of a lifetime, going to Six Flags Magic Mountain will definitely suit your adrenalin rush needs.
In order to plan a successful trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain, you should make a trip itinerary. Organize your trip so you won’t be left scrambling at the last minute. Nobody likes being hassled while he is in the midst of his vacation. Make sure to take care of each and every detail to make sure that your vacation is one to remember.
The first thing to do in this situation is to do research about the place you are going to. You can do research at the theme park’s website. Here you can find ticket prices and the attractions inside the park. By booking your tickets online you will be able to avail yourself of various discounted prices, which are only offered to guests who buy their tickets through the Internet.
When you are planning your trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain, you should know when their peak seasons and their low seasons are. Of course, you would want to plan your trip during the low seasons to avoid the mad rush of all the masses found during peak seasons. Also, you will be able to avoid the ridiculously long lines commonly experienced during peak season. If ever your visit is right smack in the middle of peak season, there are still ways to avoid the rush. One thing you can do is to buy your tickets online so you won’t have to line up at the entrance of the theme park to buy your tickets. You can also opt to buy a Flash Pass online—they enable you to bypass the long lines and get you inside your desired attraction in no time. This saves you time and effort that could be spent going around the theme park and doing other possibly fun stuff. Flash Passes are limited in stock and last only for the day. Make sure that you buy early so you won’t miss out on the short stock of Flash Passes.
Another important detail for the itinerary is your lodging. As a tourist, it would be great if you had a relative who lives in or around the area of the theme park. This will save you the trouble of booking a hotel and will save you some money. If you don’t have a relative, you can consider staying in the partner hotels of Six Flags Magic Mountain, like the Comfort Suites Stevenson Ranch and Rodeway Inn Magic Mountain Area. These hotels have partnered up with Six Flags in order for their guests to spend more time close to the theme park. This saves guests the hassle of getting to and from the theme park.
