Trolley to Magic Mountain returns to Santa Clarita
Matthew Alford OW Intern | 6/22/2018, midnight
The city of Santa Clarita’s popular Summer Trolley, which provides daily free rides to and from Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor, offering evening entertainment service, from local hotels to both Town Center Drive and Old Town Newhall.
Traditionally, the Summer Trolley has run service between participating hotels and Six Flags Magic Mountain. The new, later service adds three stops along Main Street in Old Town Newhall (the hotspot for dinner, drinks and entertainment) with extended hours, every Thursday through Sunday.
The trolley runs each morning from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., picking up riders from three locations along the way: Hyatt Regency Valencia/Westfield Valencia Town Center, Courtyard by Marriott/Embassy Suites and the Holiday Inn Express. Return trips to those locations depart from Six Flags each evening beginning at 6 p.m. with the last trolley leaving at 11 p.m., depending on park hours.
The new nighttime service is a great way to experience nightlife at the Westfield Valencia Town Center (Hyatt Regency Valencia stop) and in the City’s Arts and Entertainment District in Old Town Newhall. Some of the new attractions at Westfield include The Dudes Brewery, Cheesecake Factory and Saddle Ranch Chop House, as well as community favorites like Salt Creek Grille, plus explore a variety of wine bars, restaurants and entertainment opportunities along Town Center Drive and the Patios.
While the Summer Trolley will make the same stops during this time, it will also take riders to Old Town Newhall in the evening where they can enjoy free Thursdays@Newhall events, as well as a host of nightlife spots that include a variety of dining, craft breweries, wine rooms and shopping. Local favorites include Brewery Draconum, Double Trouble, Newhall Refinery, Pulchella Winery, Southern Smoke BBQ & Brewhouse and Newhall Press Room.
Evening service to Old Town Newhall runs from 5:40 to 11 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, while Sunday service runs from 5:40 to 9:45 p.m. Two trolleys are in rotation providing service every 30-40 minutes during operating hours.
