Time to head two gallons (or $68) north of Disneyland and visit Magic Mountain in sunny Valencia California. This complimentary ticket from 1980 reflects the recent ownership change to Six Flags but still has the pre-Six Flags artwork (trolls included). The ticket itself (minus the stub) is the exact size of a check; the serial number is even in MICR print on the bottom.
The lawyers had a field day on the back of this ticket, Six Flags must have had already had this legal mumbo-jumbo from their other park’s tickets, thereof hereto! “Weldon, Williams & Lick - -Ft. Smith Ark” was the printer and maker of this fine safety paper.
This ticket is good anytime in 1980 but Magic Mountain is pretty much only open weekends in the off season. Here’s a calendar for the entire year so you can plan ahead.
Let’s add some color to this post with this November 1976 advertisement for “Fanciful curvilinear tensioned membrane structures” which of course were “part of the magic of Magic Mountain”. ALERT: Metro Monorail spotted - lower right photo - ***SAVE THE METRO***
