Monday, November 11, 2002 11:27 PM
Hi I was wondering if anyone had experiance getting from downtown LA to Magic Mountain on the weekends using some form of public transit. I cant for the life of me get anything out of MetroNet and I will be travelling there this Saturday. Any help would be wonderful.

From Coaster Con XXV, I dont recall there being any public transportation from LA to Magic Mountain. Maybe someone more familiar with the LA area could shed some more light on the subject.

I found LA's public transportation to be very confusing, and decided to just take a cab.

Public transportation from downtown L.A. to SFMM in the Santa Clarita valley is a tough call.
I exists... says the myth!
There must be a kind of bus to Santa Clarita Valley/Valencia, and from there, especially from the train station, there could be another bus.
This will take you hours though!
A cab is around $35-40 I think (one way).
L.A. is a city designed for cars.

I was in the same situation as you once, and we just took a cab. From Woodland Hills, it cost about $50.

There as gotta be some type of bus. Check out this site: http://mtaweb6.mta.net/

By the way, I tried it....$4.25 from downtown to Magic Mountain. You can enter Magic Mountain as the destination.

Your best bet is to contact one of the hotel's concierges. There are several tour companies that do round trips from hotels to Magic Mountain. You can try the Bonaventure, Wilshire Grand, Omni or L.A. Mariott. OR...you can contact the tour company directly. I know for a fact that StarLine Tours does the trip from downtown, Hollywood and other areas. Good luck.

Designed for cars? If SFMM had been built closer, you wouldn't be riding Colossus! $4.25 one-way ain't too bad. Only problem is that it'd probably take you 2 hours.

Speaking as an LA native I have to agree: ask your hotel's concierge for help or take a cab. Taking the bus will take a long, long, long time.

If those are not options I have one more suggestion: email the park and ask them about transportation from downtown.

I have some experience here. Take Metrolink from Union Station to Santa Clarita Station. Transfer to Santa Clarita transit bus route 3 (seasonal - front gate) or route 501 (employee gate). Click below for schedules:

There are only two metrolink lines open saturday, the one you want, the antelope valley line, is one of them.

Metrolink runs on Saturdays on the Antelope Valley Line (the one to SFMM).
