More California park reopening news!  Today both Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom announced that they will reopen their parks - with rides - starting on April 1st.  That's the earliest date that they are able to open under California's plan, meaning they are quite excited to welcome visitors back as soon as possible.

Six Flags Magic Mountain's plan will see the park open on April 1st and 2nd to members and passholders only, with the general public able to attend starting April 3rd.  To make sure they stay within California's opening guidelines they will utilize a reservation system to limit attendance and only residents of California are able to attend.  The park will follow the other Covid-19 safety precautions found at other Six Flags parks that have reopened since last year.


“Six Flags Magic Mountain is the undisputed Thrill Capital of the World, and we are excited to get our park open and our world-class collection of coasters running again,” said Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Park President Don McCoy.  “Our team is eager to return to work and entertain our guests in a safe environment, providing the much-needed fun and escape we have all missed this past year.  I am also looking forward to seeing guests come out and experience West Coast Racers, our newest racing coaster that was only open briefly in 2020.” 


The park will be open daily in April with hours of 10:30 am until 6 pm and then longer operating days as the summer season sets in.  Reservations are already live for the park's reopening.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will follow a similar pattern for their reopening - members and pass holders will be able to attend on April 1st and 2nd, with the general public to follow on April 3rd.  Only California residents are able to attend the park per State orders, and a reservation system will be utilized to adhere to daily attendance limits.

“We are very excited to be able to offer our full selection of rides and attractions for the first time in over a year,” noted Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Park president Janine Durette. “Six Flags creates wonderful memories through the incredible experiences we provide guests of all ages.  We are excited to welcome more guests to the park and to bring back more of our dedicated team members.”


The park will operate on weekends through the end of May, with some exceptions of weekday operations.  Hours vary from 11 am until 6 pm upon reopening, with extended hours until 8 pm as the park moves into May.  Reservations are now live on the park's website.
