Easy Ways to Get Magic Mountain Discounts

Buy your tickets ahead of time. If you buy online 5 days before you go, you'll save even more.

Buy tickets online, get a discount, print them at home and bypass the ticket line when you arrive. Magic Mountain tickets purchased online are only set up for at-home printing. If you’re using a mobile device and don’t have access to a printer, don’t buy your parking online - you won’t have a pass to show when you arrive. The person who bought the tickets should go to Guest Relations to pick up. Take a photo ID, and the credit card used to buy the tickets and the email receipt or order confirmation number.


Discover Card credit card is Six Flags' "official credit card." If you happen to have one, you can get an extra 5% cash back bonus if you use the card to buy your ticket.

Season passes are a good deal if you go more than once. Six Flags Two-Park Superman Edition Pass is good for all their parks, including Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo (but not for the water parks).

Hurricane Harbor water park requires a separate ticket. Buy it online and get a discount. If you get a combo that includes parking and a meal, you'll save a bit more (this option is not available at the gate).

If you also plan to visit other Southern California attractions on your trip, 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.
