Owner description: Enjoy a full day of Rides, thrills and spills at Merimbula's iconic family fun park. Magic Mountain gives enjoyment to every generation and is best to be experienced by the whole family. We have a Roller Coaster, Toboggan, Miniature Grand prix, Water slides and the brand new Tube Rider and so much more for those who like to keep their feet on the ground. Anyone who likes a little more excitement Magic Mountain has just the thing. Magic Mountain's Tree Climb Challenge is action packed, with 11 zip lines over 30 challenges spread over three tree top courses. If your family are up for an adventure or if mum and dad want to relax in a place where the kids can run wild in a safe secure environment Magic Mountain is just where you need to be.

“Where's the magic?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We kept wondering after our visit to magic mountain, just where was the magic?

I'm afraid there wasn't much. The roller coaster kept stopping suddenly and a guy had to come down, climb up the structure and give it a push to get it going again; doesn't instill trust in their equipment and safety.

In winter there isn't many options with a lot of things closed.

My 5 year old still had an ok time but this place needs a new life.

Great fun for the kids young and old. Buy the unlimited rides ticket as it is great value! Didn't dislike anything.

“Lots of Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

The staff at Magic Mountain could not have been more wonderful to us. My boyfriend and I (both in our early 20s) had tried to visit Magic Mountain on the Saturday, our full day in Merimbula, but it was closed due to rain, so we lined up at the gate at 10am on Sunday morning to have an hour of fun before heading back to Canberra. We each bought 4 ride tickets for $25, due to our time constraints. We were the only people in the park for most of our time there, and we treated very warmly by the friendly staff.

We took 2 toboggan rides, and 2 roller coaster rides, and wandered through Triassic Park (you don't need a ticket for this). The toboggan and roller coaster were lots of fun - both long rides with plenty of thrills.

They do have a rotation system with the rides - The toboggan and grand prix cars opened at 10am, the rollercoaster at 10:30, and the carpet slide at 11:30. I don't know if this is the daily schedule, or whether they vary which ride will open first each day, but we were very lucky that the ones that we wanted opened first.

Overall, we had a great time, and will be visiting again when we have more time, and get an unlimited pass.

“A fun day out for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We have been to Magic Mountain twice, we love it. The best way is to take lunch and get there before it opens (there will be a queue) and stay all day. There are lots of nice spots to sit, parents can take their chair and the kids can run around for 8 hours. Best to go on a nice hot day.
