From January 2018, Six Flags Magic Mountain will now open 365 days a year – adding 100 operating days.
The new expanded calendar will create opportunities for tourists as well the off-season visitors like school groups and graduating high school seniors. New convention business, extended stays, and business travel is expected throughout the year. It is hoped that the change in schedule will bolster the local economy.
The new calendar will also add value for Six Flags Season Pass Holders, as they will now be able to visit Six Flags Magic Mountain any day of the year with no blackout dates. The Six Flags Season Pass can be used at any of the 12 Six Flags Theme Parks in the U.S., Montreal, Canada and Mexico City.
Jim Reid-Anderson, Chairman, President and CEO of Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, said: “With the best collection of thrills in the world and the Six Flags brand expanding globally, this is the perfect time for one of our flagship properties to make the business transition to a 365-day operating schedule in order to maximize travel industry opportunities. Six Flags will now provide a thrilling vacation option to both international and domestic visitors coming to enjoy Southern California.”
“We can also now further leverage our thrill brand to the population base of 24-million Southern Californians and take advantage of new shoulder season business growth.”
Ernest Wooden Jr., president and CEO of the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, said: “I can wholeheartedly say there’s never been a better time to discover Los Angeles as our endlessly entertaining destinations like Six Flags Magic Mountain continue to mesmerize 47 million annual visitors.”
“As the undisputed Entertainment Capital of the World, we invite travelers from across the globe to immerse themselves in our thriving culinary scene, rich cultural life and world-class attractions.”
