Although, my boyfriend and I were at the park yesterday, and around 1 PM, the PA system came on, "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Due to circumstances beyond our control, Six Flags Magic Mountain has ended its operating day. We apologize.. blah blah". The weather wasn't that bad at all, so I guess they close the park if they don't make a quota or a certain number of paying guests...? There couldn't have been more than 50-60 guests in the park, we only ever saw the same five or six groups of people. I don't know.


I was actually somehwat surprised with the park being opened that day and staying open. Even though it was raining all the park managers were out walking around asking me how my day was; I saw 5 charcaters out and about, basically entertaining themselves. Really was good park operations!

Is this common when the park is not busy? Do they give some type of refund/coupon for a future visit? I am planning on going to Magic Mountain on the original Tatsu Media Day on April 27th. I am comming from Tampa Bay, FL, so if they closed early it would toatally suck.

I've NEVER seen it happen before, but then again, I've never seen the park that deserted. In the morning it was extremely rainy, so when I went to the park I completely expected it to be closed. I don't think it's a very common thing, it was just circumstantial. You should pray that the weather's on your side when you go, though, just in case. Heh. If they close the park early, they pass out complimentary passes as you exit.
now THIS is podracing.
