Magic Mountain is one of the most popular theme parks in the world, featuring an astounding 20 roller coasters 

This, by the way, is a world record.

This 262-acre park also features 2 water rides and is conveniently located 35 miles away from Los Angeles.

Six Flags Magic Mountain originally opened with 33 attractions, and during their opening year tickets for adults were only $5 for admission.

Best Ride at Magic Mountain

x2 sign magic mountain

X2 is the world's first 4D coaster and is hands down one of the weirdest, yet amazing experiences you'll ever have if you're a fan of coasters.

The seats spin while you're riding the ride, so it feels like you're riding two rides at once.

If you're searching for an adrenaline pump, there is no need to look further.

From the moment that you sit in the seat and buckle in, the seats will tilt backwards, and take you to the first massive climb.

Buckle up for the first drop because after that it's time to spin, turn, and everything in between.

This ride reaches speeds of up to 76 miles per hour.  

2. Hurricane Harbor Los Angeles

Located only minutes away from Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor Los Angeles offers a variety of water attractions across its 25-acre park including the popular Bonzai Pipelines and the Tornado rides.

Open since 1995, it has gained popularity for its engaging water activities and family-friendly environment.

Guests can normally visit from late May through early October.

This water park features 12 rides including:

  • Body slides
  • Tube slides
  • Family rafts
  • Children's play areas

3. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Discovery Kingdom has had quite a past, as it has changed names four separate times.

This 135 acre park features 40 total rides, 10 roller coasters and 3 water rides.

Best Ride

The newest and most popular attraction at the park is by far the 4D, free fly coaster, Batman: The Ride.

After being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, thrill-seekers will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next. 

You'll want to be familiar with the Best Day to visit Six Flags Discovery Kingdom to maximize your time and money.
