On Labour Day (2 September), 1996, Clint, Natasha and I made the hour trip from Chino Hills to Valencia, CA just north of Los Angeles to visit Six Flags Magic Mountain. Most of these parks open at 9 am, so we got up with the chickens to be there on time, but this one opened at 10.

Magic Mountain was built in 1971 and it was eventually bought by Six Flags in the late 1970's. Just from the entrance, the rides seemed to make anything I had ridden before look like a kiddie ride.

For the most park, the themed sections of the park have a decidedly California flavour.

    It was a shame to see Valencia get taken out by that nuclear bomb in the TV show "24." Hopefully the amusement park survived.

    This--IMO--is the best way to experience those rides; reading about them! Seems you CAN sleep anywhere Nat!!

    Thanks for taking me back to the old school. I was born and raised getting into M.M. for free :)

    Great place if you love rollercoasters for sure. I like to bring my 11 year old here and just spend a grand day. Very accurate and helpful tips. Thanks!

    You left out the Superman ride! It was awesome... What was it called. It's like the Chiller at Great Adventure in NJ...
