Easy Ways to Get Magic Mountain Discounts

  • Let all those silly big spenders waste their money paying full price at the ticket booth. You know better. Buy tickets online from SixFlags.com. You'll get a big discount. Print them at home and bypass the ticket line when you arrive, too.
  • Hurricane Harbor requires a separate ticket. Buy it online and get a discount. Buy a combo that includes parking and a meal and you'll save a bit more (this option is not available at the gate).
  • Discover is Six Flags' "official credit card." Save 5% if you use one to buy your ticket.
  • Season passes are a good deal if you go more than once. Six Flags' Play Pass is good for all their parks, including Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo (but not for the water parks).
  • If you also plan to visit other southern California attractions, check out the Go Los Angeles Card, which can be a big money-saver. Use this handy guide to find out all you need to know about it.
