Magic Mountain, Moncton New Brunswick
During Marking Days in June, our family took our first-ever trip to Magic Mountain in Moncton, New Brunswick.
Before we went, I asked my Facebook friends for their best tips. Here’s what I learned:
If you are an Air Miles collector, you can cash in your points for tickets to Magic Mountain!
Peelers: If you don’t have enough Air Miles, go on line and order a Peeler Card. Besides loads of other great deals for the Halifax area, it includes a Buy One Get One Free admission for Magic Mountain. Cards are $10.
Half Price Tickets
If you go to Magic Mountain at 2:30, tickets for the day are half price. There is still plenty of time to enjoy the park before closing time.
Some people find that by going at this time, there are actually fewer people. Others found that it was a lot busier in the afternoon and they would leave before the afternoon rush.
Staking out Territory
When you get to the park, be sure to stake out a seat right away. Grab a table with shade when you first arrive.
Food and Drinks
Mostly everyone suggested to bring a cooler full of drinks and snacks. There are not a lot of good food choices right in the park. But there are Beaver Tails, and that’s always a great treat!
“Water is expensive!”
Don’t bring valuables into the park. There are a lot of people and things can easily go missing. Lockers are available on site.
Some people found it a pain to use the lockers, so they suggested using a pill bottle or empty lotion container to store money and valuables in if you have to bring them.
Dress for the Weather
Don’t forget your sunscreen. We were there on a very cloudy day, and still got burnt.
Also bring a sweater. The weather changes quickly on the hill and it’s quite windy.
Plan of Attack
The wave pool can accommodate lots of people. Spend the morning on the slides and do the wave pool later.
There are double tubes (good for 2 people – especially for a younger child and adult). These must be rented.
We headed to Magic Mountain at the end of June. I cashed in Air Miles points for tickets for all 4 of us to go in for free! (700 points).
It was a cloudy, windy day and the temperature was about 19 degrees. It was quite chilly. Therefore, there were not many people at the park. We had no lines to wait in, and nothing was crowded! There are benefits to going at this time of the year!
Because the park was relatively empty and the kids are older (7 & 8) we basically roamed at will, and met back at the hot tub to warm up.
By far, the boys loved the Kamikaze waterslide the best!
The Kamikaze is more than a hundred feet long and a nearly vertical drop. You’ll reach speeds of more than 60 kilometers per hour. It’s over in less than five seconds, and you can go home and brag about it for the rest of your life!
My favourite was the tornado tube ride!
All in all, we had a fantastic day at Magic Mountain, and would definitely go back again… when it’s a bit warmer!
