Magic Mountain will open to the public on May 29th, 1971, but we are getting a sneak preview one week before. This ticket was never used, someone missed out on a very cool opportunity! I wonder what the "National Assistance League Enchanted Evening" was all about? "Gourmet Dinner and Champagne" Sign me up! Reiss Davis (Huh?) Preview day 12pm to 10pm, where do I check in????
Here is a compete scan of the brochure that came with this ticket. This is from before the park was even open.
My scanner isn't big enough to scan the entire front. it opens up as one big picture. I had to break it into two scans, but you get the idea. This is amazing art work, I love the early 70's feel, not too much detail, but enough to get the mood and look they were aiming for.
Inside, these artist renditions are great! Reminds me of the first Disneyland tour book from 1955, when there weren't any pictures to take yet since notice was finished until the last minute."Family Funland" interesting how Six Flags is currently trying to reinvent what they once had.
This is the Magic Mountain I remember well. My Grand parents took me and my brother to Magic Mountain in June 1971, all that Valencia grass and no shade! Magic Mountain being just a few miles from where I grew up and still live, I have spent every summer of my childhood there. Too bad I can barely recognize the place today....
