Six Flags over Burbank? Well, Six Flags Magic Mountain is an amusement park in the far northwestern corner of the Los Angeles area. I call the area Valencia, although it has had several names. And the nearest incorporated city is Burbank, which is kind of a joke in the Los Angeles area. The park looks very intriguing and inviting, but the thought of actually riding one of those "ultimate thrill" rides makes me very nervous.
The park, originally named Magic Mountain, was established in 1971, and it was hot stuff when I moved to the Los Angeles area in 1974. But I was scared to go there. It was still rattlesnake country back then, and I'm sure the park had a large team of snake removers.
