It was fun going on a Monday. Bigger attractions had a longer line but we got to go on many rides. Only thing was the buses that take you to and from the parking lot took forever. We chose to walk. Other than that we all had a lot of fun.

I've been to Six Flags Magic Mountain many times but wanted to write a review about my latest experience since it was our first time purchasing the Flash Pass. We visited the park on Saturday, July 20th so we expected it to be crowded & hot. It wasn't as hot as expected but definitely pretty crowded since it was a weekend in the summertime. My husband & I visited with our 2 teenagers and we all LOVE rollercoasters! This is definitely the best park around for anyone who loves thrill rides! We arrived before the park opened since we wanted to ride the newest roller coaster "Full Throttle" first thing before the line got too long. Once inside the park we went straight for the entrance of that ride and were on/off within 20 minutes, success!

We then went to the Flash Pass office to check out the options available. We opted for the least expensive option known as the "Regular Flash Pass". Basically we could reserve a place in line using the device and we would wait the same amount of time as the current wait time without having to stand in line…sold! For our party of 4 we paid $135 for this privilege. The next level “Gold Flash Pass” would have cost us around $230 and would have cut our wait time for each ride by 50% of whatever the current wait time was. The “Platinum Flash Pass” basically eliminates all waiting times but would have cost us $350 for our party of 4, pretty steep! We almost opted for the Gold level but they told us we could upgrade anytime during the day if the wait times were too long so we opted for the regular & were totally happy with the way it worked out. Once you reserve a ride on the device you can’t search or reserve another ride until you’ve checked in for your current reservation. So once you’re in line you can scroll through and see what you want to do next, it was AWESOME! Definitely worth the money spent & glad we didn’t spend more because it was really unnecessary. We stayed until 9pm and rode all the rides and even rode Superman & Tatsu twice. There is a fee ($10-$15 per person?) to add Full Throttle and X2 to the device on the Gold & Platinum levels and you can only ride it once, this seems like a rip off and we didn’t think it was necessary. Most of the wait times were at least an hour but instead of standing in a long line sweating to death we were able to have lunch, grab snacks & sit in the shade in between each ride, priceless especially with whiney teenagers!

Overall our day at the park was TONS of fun but really tiring. If you’ve never been it’s a really big park and there are a lot of hills so comfortable shoes are a must. Some of the bathrooms are small & I waited in line more than once to use the women’s restroom which was annoying. But overall this park has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I read so many reviews where people complain about the cleanliness of the park and the people who visit but seriously? It’s an amusement park, if you’re not focused on silly things like that you’re guaranteed to have a blast here!
