California's thrill park gets wet!

Adding a second gated attraction to Six Flags Magic Mountain, this 13+ acre waterpark was designed and built in less than a year. Featuring a revenue-enhancing figure eight plan, Hurricane Harbor consistently has the highest in-park spend of any Six Flags waterpark. This Caribbean themed waterpark features a large toddler area, themed family play zone with tipping pirate skull, a volcano, tikis, and even an octopus slide.

Originally featuring nine slides, two attractions, a wave pool, lazy river, retail, dining and arcade, the park was expanded the next year to include five more slides, a mat racer, a family fun pool, and picnic facilities.

Six Flags Hurricane Harbor

By converting an underperforming area of Six Flags Magic Mountain to a water park, an additional 450,000 guests visited as Hurricane Harbor waterpark became the property's second ticketed gate.
