Six Flags Entertainment (NYSE: SIX), a regional theme park company, has announced plans to enter the destination travel market with its Southern California flagship property–Six Flags Magic Mountain, launching a 365-day operation on January 1, 2018, the company said.
Located in the heart of one of the biggest US travel markets with more than 47 million visitors annually and a noted theme park mecca, the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World” will now have an operating calendar on par with all other theme parks in Southern California.
The Valencia-based theme park first opened in 1971, and in 2005, became the state´s first multi-gated entertainment complex with the opening of Hurricane Harbor water park. Since then, both parks have operated limited schedules, with Magic Mountain running year round on weekends and holidays in the off season, and daily throughout the spring and summer months.
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation is the world´s largest regional theme park company with USD 1.3 billion in revenue and 20 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada. For 56 years, Six Flags has entertained millions of families with world-class coasters, themed rides, thrilling water parks and unique attractions. For more information, visit www.sixflags.com.
