Six Flags Magic Mountain has announced that they will now be open all year round as opposed to being a seasonal amusement park. In the past the park typically closed during the school year but starting January 1, 2018, it will be open every day.
The Six Flags Entertainment Corporation CEO Jim Reid-Anderson spoke out about the decision.
“With the best collection of thrills in the world and the Six Flags brand expanding globally, this is the perfect time for one of our flagship properties to make the business transition to a 365-day operating schedule in order to maximize travel industry opportunities. We can also now further leverage our thrill brand to the population base of 24-million Southern Californians and take advantage of new shoulder season business growth.”
The Valencia based park will now be able to better compete with other L.A. area parks like Disneyland.
