Wanted to let you all know of a couple of awesome things coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain this summer.
First off is the July 4th Fest including ERT on rides every day over the long 4th of July weekend.
Secondly the Honda Helpful Friday's are back and start TOMORROW with ERT on Twisted Colossus and free parking for the first 60 Honda drivers.
Independence Day is more than just a holiday, it’s the ultimate American tradition. July 3 - 5, Six Flags Magic Mountain is the premiere destination to celebrate our country, enjoy the summer, and share great times with friends.
Beginning Friday, July 3, Six Flags Magic Mountain will pay tribute to and host selected Armed Service members and their families through Operation Homefront. The Valencia theme park will present Operation Homefront with a donation and the families will receive a VIP Tour for the day. Operation Homefront provides financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors. Since its inception in 2002, Operation Homefront has met more than 742,000 needs of military families and has provided more than $175 million of funding to programs benefitting military families.
Ride The Biggest Thrills of The Summer
July 4th is the peak of the summer, so why not celebrate it from the top of the world! Six Flags' tallest looping coaster Full Throttle is just one of the world class thrill machines daring you to race the wind! And there’s nothing more refreshing on a warm day than taking a ride on a classic coaster like the family-favorite, Gold Rusher.

It wouldn’t be July 4th without a festive pyrotechnic show!

Guests can take on an all-new experience on the world-famous suspended, looping coaster when its chair lift-style train is flipped 180 degrees on the track. The excitement is magnified since guests cannot see the twists and turns that await them as they soar at speeds up to 50 mph through five gut-wrenching inversions.Since opening in 1993, BATMAN™: The Ride has given more than 27 million thrilling rides and reigns as one of the most popular roller coasters in the world.
During July 4th Fest, guests can present a can of Coca-Cola® along with an admission ticket, Season Pass or active Membership to enjoy exclusive ride time each morning on some of the park’s most popular coasters including El Toro, Kingda Ka and the new El Diablo looping coaster. In the evening, guests can watch as stunning fireworks illuminate the night sky.
Coca-Cola presents Plan B and Tony Dize in concert at the Plymouth Rock Assurance® Arena July 3. Plan B, a Puerto Rican Reggaeton duo consisting of cousins Chencho and Maldy, rose to fame in 2002 when they released their first studio album, El Mundo Del Plan B: Los Que La Montan. Tony Dize is an American Reggaeton singer of Puerto Rican descent whose most recent hit includes "Duele El Amor." The event is free with theme park admission, Season Pass or active Membership.
In appreciation for the service and sacrifice made by U.S. military members and their families, Six Flags and Coca-Cola® are again proud to support Operation Homefront as part of July 4th Fest. A portion of tickets sold through Coca-Cola® will benefit Operation Homefront, and from June 29 through July 12, guests will be able to make a special donation to Operation Homefront online. In addition, Six Flags Great Adventure will proudly host 500 military personnel and their families for a day full of fun and thrills.
