Six Flags Magic Mountain California Complaint - Gouging the poor and further rewarding the rich
VALENCIA, CALIFORNIA -- I was absolutely disgusted at Magic Mountains policy pertaining to Fast Passes. Unlike other theme parks that your costly ticket is sufficient to use for your fast pass (so everyone has the opportunity to avoid long lines), Magic Mountain requires additional fees of over $100 to get a fast pass, PER TICKET. So this tells me, the wealthy can bypass lines while those of us who actually sacrifice and struggle just to afford to walk in the gate must wait in the long, tiring, hot lines. TO have my children ask why "those people" get to get escorted to the front of the line while we suffer in line is just frustrating. Sorry, kids, mom can only afford to get us in (which they were grateful for, don't get me wrong). I was just appalled at their attempt to make more money. How many people in this economy can afford $525 or more (for my family of 5)to try to avoid the lines? Not many, and certainly not me. Shame on Magic Mountain!!!! Thanks for twisting that knife in my back a little more at not being able to supply all the things to my kids that the "rich" kids get.
