Six Flags announced that one of its flagship property, Six Flags Magic Mountain, will be extending operations in 2018. Starting in 2018, guests will never have to guess if the Thrill Capital of the World will be open or not. That’s right – beginning in 2018, Six Flags Magic Mountain will be open each and EVERY DAY, 365 days per year. In recent years, the park has been open throughout the entire year, but the non-peak season typically saw weekends-only operations. “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,” stated Jim Reid-Anderson, Chairman, President and CEO of Six Flags Entertainment Corporation. “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.”
Nobody loses from this announcement as more jobs, more revenue, more value [for season passholders], and more fun for guests are now even more possible with the expansion of the operating calendar for the Valencia-based amusement park. Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger adds, “This is great news for Los Angeles. By opening the park all year round, Six Flags is significantly enhancing the tourism and travel industry, creating jobs and spurring economic growth for the entire region.” This is an exciting time for Six Flags Magic Mountain! Are you just as excited about its extended calendar?
