Six Flags Magic Mountain
Hi friends! If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen that we headed to Six Flags Magic Mountain this past weekend! We actually took some of the teenagers and young adults from our church for a fun weekend in Southern California. And because you know we LOVE our theme park eats, we tried all the theme park faves on our visit and thought we’d report back on the winners that we found. Let’s take a look!
Best Things to Eat at Six Flags Magic Mountain
Thrill Shake from Plaza Ice Cream & Shakes
The Thrill Shakes are Six Flag’s take on trendy freak shakes and I’m here for it! I mean, what’s not to love here? You can order a Thrill Shake in Strawberry Shortcake or Cookies N’ Cream and we opted for the Oreo filled wonder. Seriously, this Cookies and Cream milkshake with an Oreo Frozen Dessert Bar, chocolatey brownie, more Oreos and whipped cream with chocolate drizzle…FED 4 PEOPLE! You know, just in case you thought I ate it all.
Funnel Cake from Funnel Cake Factory
Across the way from Plaza Ice Cream & Shakes, you’ll likely see a line wrapped around the Funnel Cake Factory…and there’s a good reason! It’s the home of Six Flag’s world famous funnel cakes featuring their signature funnel cake sundaes! Also another great treat to feed a crowd. You can’t go wrong with any one you pick: the Chocolate Supreme…
Or their famous Funnel Cake Sundaes, which you can find in flavors like Strawberry or Cookies N’ Cream!
Dole Whip Float from Frozen Delights
YOU GUYS! Six Flags Magic Mountain has DOLE WHIP! Seriously the moment I found out, we were on a mission to track it down and enjoy one. If you know me, you know that one of my favorite treats ever is Dole Whip. We found Frozen Delights inside Food Etc, a food court in the center of the park. And let me tell you, it was amazing and the perfect treat for a warm California day.
Dippin’ Dots from Frozen Delights
If you’re in the food for a different frozen treat, grab the Dippin’ Dots! I don’t know what it is about these little frozen ice cream bites, but they’re fun and delicious! We got a cup of the Rainbow Ice, bright, cheery and yummy!
Refillable Drink Bottle
So this probably should have been first on our list, if I wasn’t so excited about the first few treats. If there is one tip I would highly recommend is to buy a Refillable Drink Bottle for the day OR for the Season (if you’re a Season Passholder) at the beginning of the day. We snagged ours in the Funnel Cake Factory. Now Six Flags doesn’t let you bring in any outside food or drink so this bottle is necessary. On a warm day you can get refills of ice water or soft drinks at any participating location (which there are many). We opted for ice water, lemonade and tea throughout most of the day and it kept us hydrated and refreshed without worrying about the cost of too many drinks.
Churros from Goliath Goodies
This one is always top of my husband’s list — CHURROS! We grabbed a few to pass around, they’re always a welcomed sweet treat. You can find churros at Goliath Goodies or churro carts around the park.
Chili Cheese Fries from Katy’s Kettle
Now most of my recommendations are around sweet treats, because let’s be honest that’s more my thing. But I cannot say enough about these Chili Cheese Fries! Again it was a quick and tasty snack for a group of us, and I’m not sure if they even lasted a full 60 seconds. They were devoured! I would definitely order these again and again.
Candy Apples from Coaster Candy
Now let’s move on to candy. I spent a lot of time in these cute little candy stores you can find throughout the park. We did enjoy a sweet chocolate-covered apple but we had it all cut up, so I’m sharing the cute packaged version here. Definitely tasty and cut up, so easy to share.
Peanut Brittle from Coaster Candy
Another candy that caught my eye from shopping the Coaster Candy shops was their wall of Peanut Brittle! I just had to get my hands on some, so I picked this Coconut Peanut Brittle and it was amazing! They’re also already packaged to go, so they’d make an easy treat to take home with you.
Trolli Candy from Coaster Candy
Now you may not know this about me, but I’m obsessed with Trolli candy. I LOVE Trolli Sour Gummy Worms and when I saw an ENTIRE WALL dedicated to Trolli candy in several Six Flags shops, I was mesmerized! We took a bunch of the fun, funky candy home with us, including these Sour Brite Llamas!
Takis from Six Flags Shops
Now I mentioned I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain with a bunch of teenagers, right? Well they went NUTS over the huge selection of Takis throughout the park. Apparently there are Takis you can find here that you can’t find anywhere else! So we loaded up on Takis for snacking in the park and on the way home. I had some happy kiddos with their fave spicy snack.
Six Flags Magic Mountain Dining Pass
Now if you’re a Season Passholder at Six Flags Magic Mountain, you just might want to pick up a Dining Pass, Deluxe Season Pass or Basic Dining Pass, for your visit. Half the teens in our group were passholders and they opted to buy the Basic Dining Pass to keep their budgets in check. Based on the pass you get, you can get lunch, dinner and a snack and even a refillable bottle. It’s a great plan if you’re planning on sitting down for meals and want to be able to plan your expenses ahead of time.
So there you have it! The best eats at Six Flags Magic Mountain! Did we list your favorite? On Instagram, a Six Flags associate told us we need to try the Western Burger next time we’re there so that’s on our list. Anything else we need to add for our next visit?
