Whether you’re having a family day out or a trip with friends, you can find somewhere great to stay after your visit to California‘s Six Flags Magic Mountain – bookable on Culture Trip.
First opening its doors in 1971, Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park has been a staple of thrilling entertainment in the greater Los Angeles area for generations. Listed in the Guinness Book of Records for holding the largest number of rollercoasters in a theme park, it’s no wonder that this major theme park in Valencia, California, has remained a firm favorite.
Nuzzling Santa Clarita, this branch of the revered Hyatt chain is perfectly placed for visiting the exciting local attractions, including, of course, the Six Flags Magic Mountain, just a 10-minute drive away. Whether you go for one of the Queen or King rooms – or select a Junior or Panorama suite – comfort and elegance are guaranteed. There’s in-house dining at Great Pacific – where mouthwatering sushi is sliced and served – plus a 24-hour fitness center and lovely outdoor, heated pool. This is the perfect place for some rest and relaxation after all the excitement of a day at Six Flags.
Another fine outpost from the masters of hospitality, the Marriott’s Courtyard has conveniently located a 10-minute drive away from Six Flags and has sophisticated rooms that cater to your every need.

There’s a complimentary American breakfast served here every morning – before you venture out to Six Flags, a 12-minute drive away. Before the sun goes down, you’ll want to make the most of the great outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool, gym with free weights and on-site sports court – where sports fans can squeeze in a quick game of basketball or volleyball.
This award-winning luxury hotel is a Pasadena landmark, hosting guests in sunny California for generations. As well as offering ridiculously decadent rooms and suites, the facilities here are top of the range.

Then there’s the fitness center, with state-of-the-art equipment and classes including yoga, tai chi, meditation and pilates. The saline swimming pool is heated all year round, inviting guests to take a dip, no matter the weather – plus the ever-popular floodlit tennis courts host tennis lessons for guests of the hotel. After all that exercise, you’ll no doubt want to indulge at the Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse – order one of the USDA prime cuts, Japanese Kobe beef, or Australian Wagyu steaks.
