After four weeks of spirited voting, USA Today announced Friday that readers have voted Six Flags Magic Mountain the winner of the 2018 Best Theme Park contest.
It’s the second time the Valencia theme park has won the award.
Billed as the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World” and noted for its renowned collection of world-class thrills, Six Flags Magic Mountain boasts 19 roller coasters, more than any other theme park on the planet, including world-record-holders Full Throttle, Tatsu, X2 and Goliath.
Twisted Colossus, which debuted in 2015 as the world’s longest hybrid coaster, was chosen second of the Top 10 Best Roller Coasters in the country.
“This is such a tremendous honor from our fans who continue to support our efforts of providing innovative and thrilling ride experiences each and every year,” said Park President Neal Thurman.
“Our fans have spoken and to be voted the number one theme park speaks to our core message of delivering exceptional guest service and world-class rides and attractions. Everyone at Six Flags Magic Mountain thanks you for your votes,” Thurman said.
Two of Magic Mountain’s sister parks, Six Flags Great Adventure (Jackson, New Jersey) and Six Flags Fiesta Texas (San Antonio), ranked third and fifth respectively as America’s best theme parks.
Nominees for all categories were chosen by a panel which includes a combination of editors from USA TODAY, travel experts and theme park industry experts.
