AAA members will enjoy a night just for them at discount prices during the eighth annual Six Flags Magic Mountain AAA Member Exclusive Night on Friday, May 11.

 

By pre-purchasing tickets online at AAA.com/SixFlags, members can spend all day May 11 at the park and then stay for the private AAA event taking place from 6 p.m. to midnight after the park closes to the public.  AAA member ticket prices for the event are $39 per person for park admission (a savings of more than 50 percent off the regular gate price) from 10:30 a.m. to midnight on May 6, and $52 per person for park admission plus an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner taking place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Parking is free after 5 p.m. (a $20 value).

 

Those who buy the ticket with the buffet dinner option by April 30 will also receive a free Hurricane Harbor ticket ($43.99 value) for use in September 2018.

 

The all-you-can-eat buffet includes chili cheese dogs, chicken strips with barbecue sauce, baked beans, corn, tossed green salad, potato chips, rolls, Popsicles, cookies and cream ice cream bars and unlimited Coke product soft drinks.

 

The park is located off Interstate 5 at 26101 Magic Mountain Parkway.

 

This year, members have an exciting added benefit of experiencing the park’s newest attraction, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis. Riders join members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE™ Reserve Team in a multi-sensory four-minute game experience facing wind, fire, fog and special effects as they battle alongside iconic DC Super Heroes, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Green Lantern to save the city of Metropolis from Lex Luthor, The Joker and his henchmen. Also wreaking havoc is Harley Quinn, The Joker’s favorite sidekick.  

 

“The AAA Member Exclusive Night has become an annual event eagerly anticipated by many of our members,” said Jon Carlew, the Auto Club’s manager of AAA Discounts. “Six Flags offers AAA discounts every day at all its theme parks throughout the U.S., but the Member Exclusive Night goes above and beyond to provide an exclusive experience to attendees.”

 

Auto Club members can buy discounted Six Flags tickets for any day of the year at AAA.com/SixFlags. A one-day discounted admission to Six Flags Magic Mountain is $53.13 for AAA members pre-paying online (plus $5.99 processing fee per order). AAA members can also show their card at the front gate to get $5 off the Six Flags Magic Mountain general admission price of $84.99.

 

In addition to the ticket discounts, Auto Club members can save 10 percent off merchandise purchases of $15 or more at selected stores inside any Six Flags park.
