How to get Six Flags Magic Mountain discount tickets and special offers
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of fun Six Flags Magic Mountain rides and characters! Teens and adults love Magic Mountain's huge & scary roller coasters---the biggest collection of thrill ride fun in the western USA! Children and families enjoy the wide variety of family rides the whole group may enjoy together, as well as a large kiddie land full of rides and attractions for kids & their parents. Of course, you'll enjoy your visit even MORE if you save money by getting your theme park tickets at a discount!
What discounts are available for Six Flags Magic Mountain?
Coupons, print-at-home discounts...and more!
1.) Print at Home discounts: The Magic Mountain print-at-home discount currently lets you buy tickets at a substantial discount. It's unbelievable how much money you can save simply by printing your ticket at home before you leave for the theme park! However, you should buy your tickets a bit earlier than you need them. The best discounts (and sometimes the ONLY discounts) are for advanced purchases...and not on same day tickets. Even if you can order before midnight the night before your visit, you'll likely get a better deal than same-day prices. You may use the following link to check out the current print-at-home discounts on the SixFlags.com website. You may need to have some patience, because the Six Flags ticketing page can take awhile to load. (Note: the print-at-home ticket prices can change without any advanced warning from Magic Mountain; they reserve the right to change ticket prices at any time.)
2.) Coke can discounts are an annual tradition. Earlier this year, the park's website said this: "Bring a can of Coca-Cola to the park to save $15 on park admission or save even more when you buy tickets online at least three days in advance using promo code Coke. Print your tickets at home or save them to your phone. Skip the ticket booth and go straight to the gate!" At the time of this update, we're no longer seeing this notice on the Six Flags website. So then, the special is over? Probably. But you can try the instructions that they gave earlier to see if they still work.
3.) AAA's ticket savings: Members of the AAA (American Automobile Association) can get a discount through the AAA's "Show your card and save" program. At times, even cheaper ticket deals are available through the AAA website or office. Contact your local office before heading to the park to check the latest offers. Or, you may check online at www.AAA.com
AAA discounts can vary by the state or region in which you live. But to give you an example of a typical AAA discount, we'll tell you what our local club is offering. Here, AAA members save up to 30% on tickets purchased through the club's website. Or, they get a $5 off of general admission at the gate. AAA cards get you 10% discounts on gifts, candy and photos at the park, as well.
4.) Hotel discounts: Some of the hotels near Six Flags Magic Mountain partner with the park in providing discount tickets that can be bought at the hotel desk AND/OR special package deals. Package deals bundle both your tickets and your hotel room into one single deal that costs less than they would if purchased separately. Unfortunately, none of the packages are for super-budget motels. But if you're planning on staying at a moderate to premium hotel anyway, it might help you out if you checked their current deals and packages. Here's a link to the Hotel Deals page of the Six Flags Magic Mountain website. Extra perk in 2018: Booking your hotel thru Six Flags will get you into Magic Mountain 10 minutes before the park's opening time. You can be first in line for your favorite coaster!
Can you get group discounts at the Magic Mountain ticket windows? Yes, you can; however, your discount is simply better when you plan ahead & purchase them online before your Six Flags visit. At the park's own ticket windows, group tickets cost slightly higher. It's still a wonderful deal, of course; just not quite as cheap as ordering ahead. If you have questions, the Group Tickets phone number at Magic Mountain is (661) 255-4500.
6.) Employer, professional association & credit union discounts: At your workplace--- or if you belong to a credit union or if you're a member of a professional association--- you will want to ask if your particular organization is offering discounts to Six Flags Magic Mountain.These tickets may perhaps be less convenient to get than other discount methods, and may involve phoning or mailing ahead-of-time to place your order (and then waiting for your tickets to arrive.) Other organizations may simply have coupons or promo codes waiting for you to pick up and use.
Credit unions can be a good place to get Magic Mountain discount tickets if you're not a member of a professional association. You'll surely be eligible to join one of the credit unions located near your home, and then you'll not only receive good rates when you do your banking...but you'll also get a number of perks. A number of California credit unions offer discounted Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor tickets to their members. Prices do vary between credit unions, but are usually some of the cheapest prices around. (Note: Unfortunately, not all credit unions offer Six Flags tickets.)
Ways to get FREE Magic Mountain tickets
Free ticket dates at Six Flags Magic Mountain: Several times per year, you can get free tickets!There are several times during the year that you can get free admission to Magic Mountain...IF you make a charitable donation, that is! There are several free dates which happen in late Fall each year, right around the holidays.
1.) Bag a Ticket day: Right around Thanksgiving every year, Magic Mountain will give you a free ticket to the theme park if you bring one FULL bag of non-perishable groceries. This means canned, packaged and boxed goods. Don't bring fresh foods such as frozen meat, refrigerated milk, or leafy green veggies---and no glass containers, either. The reason for this is because there isn't time to distribute the food you bring before Thanksgiving Day. It will be given out during the month of December. Whatever you bring needs to be able to last that long.
You must use your free Magic Mountain ticket on the day that the Bag A Ticket food is collected. What exact date will it be held? There is no firm date; it varies from year to year. Bag a Ticket day for some years in the recent past has been the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. But, it's not always on Wednesdays. The Sunday before Thanksgiving has also been used as the Bag A Ticket date. The date for this year's Bag A Ticket day will be announced by the park shortly after Fright Fest ends. (Magic Mountain never gives too much advanced notice about this.) You can check the "events" page of the Six Flags website in mid-November for this year's date.
2.) Toys for the Holidays program: Every year, Magic Mountain will give you free admission near Christmas time in return for donating a toy to a needy child. Usually this is held the first weekend of December---but this isn't guaranteed to be the date. Just like the Bag-a-Ticket free day, Six Flags doesn't announce the date of Toys for the Holidays until the last minute. To discover this year's date, you should check the "events" page of the SixFlags.com website AFTER Thanksgiving has passed.
How does the Toys for the Holidays program work? Guests are able to get FREE admission tickets to Six Flags Magic Mountain by donating a brand new toy costing $20 or more to help poor children have a merry Christmas. WHAT KIND OF TOY? Almost any toy that's not earily breakable is fine. The important thing if you're planning on participating is to BE HONEST! You should REALLY spend $20 instead of trying to pass off a used toy or cheap toy. BRING YOUR RECEIPTS; they may be checked.
How many toys should you bring for this program? One per person---not per group. Each person who wants a free Magic Mountain admission ticket should bring a toy. Do not wrap the toys! This will be done by volunteers right before the toys are inspected. Then, the toys will be distributed to the recipients.
Note: If you are having a rough time and NEED toys for your kids this year, please visit your local food bank to inquire about their holiday offerings. Many food banks do give holiday packages out to those who have signed up for regular weekly food distributions.
Magic Mountain Season Pass = great benefits!
Frequent Six Flags visitors save most by getting a season pass or membership!
WHAT'S A SIX FLAGS MEMBERSHIP? HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A SEASON PASS? Memberships don't expire at the end of each year; you can visit the park as often as you'd like until you stop your membership. Basically, a membership offers you the same benefits as a season pass, except that you pay for it differently.
Small monthly payments will come out of your checking or Pay Pal account...which helps to make this an affordable option. The payment size depends on the "level" of membership that you're buying (eg regular or Gold,) but payments start at around $7 per person per month. It's hard to notice that small amount coming out of your account each month, so it makes visiting Magic Mountain do-able for almost any budget. You can't quit making your payments for 12 months; then after that, you may terminate your membership at any time. But, until you stop your membership, you do NOT have to keep getting a new card every year (like you do for a season pass.) This is actually a darned good benefit...as you know if you've ever "grown old" standing in line to have your season pass processed.
BENEFITS OF SEASON PASSES AND MEMBERSHIPS:
One tremendous advantage of buying either a season pass or membership is that it's not only accepted for admission to Magic Mountain in Valencia/greater Los Angeles, but also for admission during to ALL of the Six Flags theme parks! (Note: Unfortunately, the Hurricane Harbor water park is NOT one of the "regular" season pass benefits. You must get a Combo Pass or the Gold Pass if you want Hurricane Harbor admission included.)
LIST OF SIX FLAGS THEME PARKS: Here's a list of the 6 Flags theme parks where your Six Flags Magic Mountain season pass will be honored:
*Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (formerly called Six Flags Marine World,) Vallejo, California (Metro San Francisco)
MAGIC MOUNTAIN SEASON PASS COUPON BOOK: When you purchase a Six Flags Season Pass, you get a very good coupon book for season pass holders with it. (These are available for you to pick up at the park when you process your pass...or you may print out the coupons online.) This year's coupons that you'll receive...including dates that you may use the very popular "free friends" coupons...are listed on the Value Book page of the Six Flags Magic Mountain website.
What other types of coupons will you find in your Annual Pass Holder discount book? There are also---
* 1/2 Price Six Flags ticket for a friend; good at any 6 Flags theme park (1 coupon)
SEASON PASSES ONLINE: You may purchase Magic Mountain season passes on the ticketing page of the SixFlags.com website, where you may also find out further information, as well.
If you buy your season pass online, you will still have to process your pass at the theme park on your first visit there. It saves you the time of standing in line at the ticket booth if you get them ahead. You are also immune to any price increases, if there should be any.
Magic Mountain Flash Pass
Save time--jump ahead in line with a Flash Pass purchase!
MAGIC MOUNTAIN'S TIME-SAVING FLASH PASS: In addition to offering the Six Flags Play Pass, Magic Mountain also sells a way to save time at the park. The "Flash Pass," which costs around $40 to $125 for 1 person lets you skip long lines...legally, without getting ejected from the park for line-jumping! The Six Flags Magic Mountain Flash Pass will get you one day's use of their new electronic Flash Pass units (which recently replaced the old ticket system.) The price of the pass varies depending on what type of Flash Pass you choose AND how crowded the park is expected to be on the day you attend. (It's cheaper in "slow season" months than during busy periods at the theme park.)
Flash Pass "Regular"-- For the least expensive fee, you'll wait longer than if you pay the more expensive price. However, it's not really a bad length of time to wait if the park isn't too crowded.
Flash Pass "Gold"-- If you visit on a day when lines are very long, the more expensive option (Flash Pass "Gold") is the one that will make you happiest. Simply put, the extra fee buys you less waiting time. Also, you MUST pay the higher fee & get the Flash Pass Gold...AND pay an extra fee in addition...if you want to skip the lines for the ultra-popular X2 roller coaster.
Flash Pass "Platinum"--This pass lets you ride 2 consecutive times. It's like getting to ride twice the amount of rides for the same amount of walking and waiting time.
Which rides accept the Flash Pass? Here's the list of rides which accept the Flash Pass---
Good multiple-attraction discount, the Los Angeles Go Card!
Magic Mountain is included in the LA Go Card program!
What is the Los Angeles Go Card? If you're unfamiliar with the Go Card discount plan (which operates in a number of cities throughout the USA,) it's an exciting way to see multiple attractions at discount rates. It's cutting-edge because Go Cards are the first plan where the purchasers gets to pick WHICH attractions they'll see...rather than the company producing the plan.
How does the Los Angeles Go Card work? There are about five dozen "member attractions" in LA, Orange and San Diego counties who accept the Los Angeles Go Card. You are free to pick and choose from among them, deciding which attractions you'll visit, and which you'll skip. You simply figure out how many days you'll want to tour SoCal attractions. Then, you purchase a 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7-day Los Angeles Go Card for that period of time. Once you pre-pay for your card, then you simply head to the attractions you want to visit, show your Go Card at the ticket booth, and you're given an entrance pass without any further charge.
List of attractions where you can use the Los Angeles Go Card: Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott's Berry Farm and Legoland are other major theme parks included as options on the LA Go Card discount pass. Also included are Hollywood tours, movie studio tours, the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, tours of the Queen Mary, the Los Angeles Zoo, Wild Rivers Water Park (in season,) harbor tours, many museums, and more. San Diego attractions included in the LA Go Card (in addition to Legoland) include San Diego Harbor excursions and Belmont Amusement Park wristbands. To read through the full list will take you awhile; so to browse through the entire listing, you may view the Go Los Angeles Card section of the GoCardUSA.com website.
