We went to Magic Mountain 4-5 years ago. It has some amazing roller coasters, but it is not a little kids park, it is a teenagers park. And even on a weekend the lines were not to bad. We even found a place to buy a beer.
Yea, I mean unless things have really changed it is a pretty ethnically diverse place. You see people with 6-8 kids and you wonder how they managed to pay for all of them. I mean it would have freaked me out. But I imagine you save and make it a trip of a lifetime. My parents did that once in the 60’s with us and I imagine even then Disneyland probably felt expensive.
