Parent Swap: Must-Have for Parents
The best rides that your entire family will love
Six Flags Magic Mountain has extreme coasters and gentle kiddie fun – and everything in between. Some of our rides let your family enjoy the ride and time together. Stick together and enjoy some quality family bonding time on these family favorites.
1. Enjoy mild thrills on Road Runner Express.
This family-friendly coaster will thrill all the daredevils in your crew. Kids can hold on to mom and dad—if they need to—while their train flies along the curvy 679-foot track, reaching a gentle, yet exciting, 28 feet high at mild speeds of 21 miles per hour. It’s perfect for coaster-lovers of all ages—whether it’s your first beginner ride or a break from the extreme thrills.
2. Explore Whistlestop Park on the WhistleStop Train.
Hop on the WhistleStop Train for a scenic tour around Whistlestop Park. The large locomotive has plenty of room for your family to spread out on the wide benches and let the little ones hop in your lap. Then, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the bonding time while your train conductor shows you all the best sites around the junction.
3. Bond as you navigate through the wilderness on Roaring Rapids.
Your entire family can experience a river adventure as you navigate the unpredictable twists of the rushing river. You will plunge down a splashy drop and past a waterfall at the end where your entire clan will get covered with a wave.
4. Get a rush on Gold Rusher.
Board this runaway mine train and prepare for a rushing adventure your family will never forget. Travel back to the days of the Gold Rush on the park’s first roller coaster. You’ll zip through the hillside at 35 miles per hour and dive 70 feet down deep into the mines, twisting and turning through the rugged frontier. Every rookie thrill-seeker should get the chance to search for gold and strike rich in fun on this runaway journey.
5. Take a swinging ride on Buccaneer.
Your family of sailors can climb aboard this pirate ship and ride the "waves" as you swing wildly back and forth, higher and higher, gaining momentum with every swaying pivot until you’re hanging slightly vertical in the air. Even the captain of your family will feel a little dizzy after this wild voyage.
