3) Six Flags Magic Mountain – Valencia, California
This adventure theme park comes in at our number 3 spot due in large part to its total dedication to the thrill of the roller coaster ride. Located just north of Los Angeles in Valencia, this park is home to the most roller coasters out of any other theme park in the world at an impressive 18 coaster. This plethora of thrilling rides includes the famous Green Lantern roller coaster, the Goliath coaster, the wooden coaster Colossus and the dare devil style ride known as the Freefall.
The park also offers 9 different themed areas for guests to explore each with its own unique set of rides, coasters, attractions and restaurant options. It is possible to spend several days exploring all that the park has to offer and with an annual attendance rate right around 3 million people a year, this park ranks in at number 6 in attendance for all theme parks in the US. For the ultimate in thrills and the chance to ride all of the park’s 18 roller coasters we love this southern California staple.
