I have never been to Magic Mountain. I have a few questions, if someone feels generous enough to answer them.
-According to the young person I talked to on the phone at Magic Mountain, if I purchase the Annual Pass online NOW (utilizing the discount promotion), I am not in any rush to activate it. My trip is not until late August. But. I would like to be able to purchase it now and save a few bucks. Can anyone confirm that this will work?
-Is the pass good for a year from purchase? Or a year from activation?
-Also, is the "booklet" of coupons, including the "friend passes" that allow a friend free admission on certain days... is that something that I need to be concerned will not longer be available if I wait until August to use my pass for the first time? I was only planning to use the one that is good in August, but it will figure into my budgeting, so ....
-Is parking included with an annual pass at Magic Mountain?
That;s about it. My only other question is about the "family friendly" rides (not the coasters). Are the water rides (the log flume, the river rapids, etc) worth taking the time to do? Or should we stick to the coasters?
Thanks for any help. We are Disney vets, but we are going to branch out on our next trip.
