Permanent metal detectors will be installed at the shared entrance to the Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor theme parks, officials with the parks' operator, Six Flags, announced Friday. By December, all visitors to the adjacent Valencia parks will be required to pass through the high-tech screening devices to help ensure no weapons find their way inside, officials said.

New Theme Park: After much talk about building a second Disney theme park and a resort in Anaheim, the Santa Clarita Valley may instead be the first Southland community to put two theme parks on the same property. Time Warner's Six Flags division said it will build a water park next to Magic Mountain in Valencia, to open next year. Called Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, the park will feature lagoons, replicas of shipwrecks, water slides and a wave pool.

A shady river flows through the center of Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, wending past the new water park's dozen or so attractions. To one side, crumbled icons surround a ceremonial wave pool. To the other, a giant pirate skull spouts plumes of water. But all the kids want speed. They find it in a far corner, where three slides descend sharply from the decrepit-looking Taboo Tower. Screams ring through the sunny afternoon as tiny bodies plummet down 300-foot chutes.

Six Flags Magic Mountain, which forged its reputation with a dizzying array of roller coasters, announced plans Thursday for an adjacent water park to open early next summer. The new 14-acre park, to be called Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, will feature water slides and lagoons as well as restaurants and shops, set amid jungle-type foliage. It will charge a separate admission and, Six Flags officials hope, align the 23-year-old theme park with the newest industry trend--the two-day attraction.

Riding a surge of popularity in water parks, Six Flags California announced Thursday it will more than double the number of slides at its Valencia water park as part of an expansion early this year at the tropical-themed attraction. Set to open in late May or early June, the expansion will bring to 22 the number of water slides at the company's Hurricane Harbor park, which is adjacent to Magic Mountain theme park.

With a new, lavishly designed water park called Hurricane Harbor scheduled to open Friday beside the trademark roller coasters of Magic Mountain, Six Flags California is trying to become the kind of world-class theme park that not only lures guests, but keeps them around for more than a day. It's a $35-million gamble, one that could help Six Flags compete with the top draws in California's fiercely competitive tourist industry.
