Six Flags Magic Mountain, previously known simply as Magic Mountain, is a 262-acre theme park found in unincorporated Valencia, next to the city of Santa Clarita.
In 1979, Six Flags bought the park and added “Six Flags” to the park’s name. Among 19 roller coasters, Six Flags Magic Mountain continues the world record for most roller coasters in an amusement park. In 2017, the park had an expected 3.3 million visitors, putting it at the 16th highest attendance in North America.
More than a decade after Six Flags purchased the park, Six Flags Corporation was contracted to Time Warner in 1989. The park’s name remained Six Flags Magic Mountain, along with different Six Flags parks worldwide.
Six Flags Magic Mountain is recognized as the “Thrill Capital of the World,” the 260-acre business park emphasizes world-class roller coasters and over 100 rides, games, and performances for the entire family and is voted by the USA TODAY books as America’s Best Theme Park.
When the park started in 1971, there were 500 workers and 33 rides. Many of the attractions were created and built by Arrow Development Co., which later became Arrow Dynamics.
The park started with just two roller coasters in its first year. They were Gold Rusher and Clown Coaster. In 1973, the park added its third roller coaster, the now-defunct Mountain Express.
