Inaugural Goth Night canceled at Six Flags Magic Mountain

The inaugural Six Flags Goth Night at Magic Mountain that would have mixed industrial live bands and deathrock DJs with roller coasters and haunted mazes has been canceled amid finger-pointing by the event organizer and the Valencia amusement park.

Goth on the Mountain, a joint venture between Fontana-based Inland Empire Goth and Six Flags Magic Mountain, was set to be held at the theme park on Sept. 16 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

“It is with great sadness and disappointment that our Goth on the Mountain event has been canceled,” a post on the Inland Empire Goth official Facebook page read. “We have worked tirelessly to make this event a success, but we unfortunately did not receive the same effort from the park.”

Six Flags Magic Mountain officials declined to comment.

Inland Empire Goth is reviewing options for recovering losses from Magic Mountain and promises to fully refund all Goth on the Mountain ticket holders.

“We had an agreement with the park that was negotiated months ago, but they could not comply with the terms of the agreement,” the Inland Empire Goth Facebook post continued. “We tried extremely hard to modify the agreement with the park to keep the event alive, but they could not meet our terms such that it would have been too much of a detriment to Inland Empire Goth and to our members.”

The family-friendly, all-ages event was created by Goths for Goths with the goal of changing the stigma surrounding the Goth subculture. Magic Mountain planned to be closed to the general public during the private ticketed event.

The $130 tickets would have included access to Magic Mountain rides and three Fright Fest haunted mazes as well as food, drinks, DJ music and parking. Attending a live concert during the event would have cost an additional $60. Tickets were only available through the Six Flags Magic Mountain website.

The planned line-up of live bands playing the Golden Bear Theater made famous by the “Spinal Tap” mockumentary film included London After Midnight (dark rock), Glass Spells (synth pop), Assemblage 23 (industrial electronic) and Male Tears (electro pop).

More than a dozen DJs were set to spin a soundtrack of Goth, industrial, deathrock, darkwave and synth pop tunes on the Full Throttle Stage and in the Metro Park Pub.

The weekend event would have continued on Sept. 17 with a Misfit Market and Gargoyle Gala at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott in Santa Clarita.
