Overview of Magic Mountain's Dates and Hours
Southern California's Six Flags theme park stays open year-round!If you live in an area of the country where your local Six Flags theme park closes for the winter and spring months, it may seem strange to you that Six Flags Magic Mountain in California stays open all year round. But, it's true! Magic Mountain DOES stay open 12 months a year for your family's entertainment pleasure!
Traditionally, the Magic Mountain amusement park was only open on weekends during the winter and early spring months.
HOWEVER, in 2018 Six Flags stayed open EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK ALL YEAR LONG for the first time in recent memory. Was the schedule of expanded hours a success? Yes! It's obvious because...
IN 2019, SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN IS OPEN EVERY DAY YEAR-ROUND ONCE AGAIN!

June, 2019 open hours at Magic Mountain!
