Southern California's Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park will be open every day of the year beginning in 2018.
The change, set to start Jan. 1, is designed to transition Six Flags from a niche regional theme park to a major destination resort like Southern California rivals Universal Studios Hollywood and the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.
Six Flags Magic Mountain President Bonnie Weber said the expansion also means the theme park can better target tourists who visit from outside the region and the country.
What to do, where to go and what to see
The park, which runs 19 roller coasters, more than any other U.S. theme park, now operates 250 days a year, primarily in the summer months, during school holiday breaks and on select weekends.
