Six Flags Magic Mountain welcomes foodies with Flavors of the World food festival – Daily News

2 min read

Thrill seekers looking for a break from the 20 roller coasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain can take a culinary trip around the world to seven different countries this spring without ever stepping foot outside the Valencia amusement park.

The Flavors of the World food festival runs on Saturdays and Sundays from March 23 through May 5 from noon to 7 p.m. at Magic Mountain.

The international food festival moves to the spring this year after debuting last summer at Magic Mountain. The park tried the Tacos & Beer Fest last spring.

The seven Flavors of the World festival booths scattered throughout Magic Mountain are intended to evoke the sights, sounds and smells of lively street markets in India, Greece, Mexico, Italy, China, Korea and the Caribbean. This year’s food festival swaps out the France booth for the flavors of Mexico.

The Flavors of the World food fest will take place in Full Throttle Plaza, Whistlestop Park, Goliath Plaza and near Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom.

Magic Mountain visitors can sample nearly three dozen traditional foods and drinks from the festival booths using a Sip & Savor Passport good for 8 samples ($50) or 12 samples ($65). That works out to $6.25 per item with the 8-sample passport and $5.40 per item with the 12-sample passport.

Magic Mountain’s food fest strategy borrows from the playbooks of Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. Disney California Adventure offers a lineup of back-to-back food festivals in winter and spring before the bigger crowds descend in the summer while Knott’s spreads the food fests throughout the year in a never-ending conga line of culinary events.
