Dole Whips Available At Six Flags Magic Mountain

Six Flags Magic Mountain Dole Whips

It used to be that when somebody mentioned  Dole Whips, you would immediately think of being at Disneyland or Disney World. However, you can now enjoy that same pineapple goodness at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

When I first heard that Six Flags Magic Mountain was going to be selling Dole Whips, I thought that was huge news. Like many people, I somewhat assumed that it was an exclusive product only available at Disney properties. Boy was I wrong. Dole Whips are pretty much available all over the country and anyone can buy the mix and make their own. That just goes to show how well Disney has marketed and promoted the product in their parks. Technically, the brand ‘Dole Whip’ doesn’t even exist anymore. Dole changed it and it is now known as Dole Soft Serve, as you can see by the logo above. But people still call them Dole Whips because that name is so well known thanks to Disney.

The only place you can find Dole Whips at Six Flags Magic Mountain is at What the Fried?, located in the Six Flags Plaza in the front of the park:

Other than a poster on the wall inside, I haven’t seen any other marketing collateral in the park promoting Dole Whips. In fact, it wouldn’t even be that hard to miss it on the menu board. If you look at the very bottom-right, you’ll see them:

The product is sold in 4.5 lb. bags of dry mix. You add some water to it and drop it in a soft serve machine. A short while later, it’s ready to be dispensed. Another little known fact is that there are a total of seven Dole Soft Serve flavors available; pineapple, strawberry, raspberry, orange, mango, chocolate, and vanilla. Six Flags Magic Mountain only sells the pineapple and mango flavors:

Since I’ve had pineapple so many times over the years, I opted to try the mango flavor:

(Sorry for the blurry pics. I could not focus inside that store to save my life.)

I was impressed with how big of a serving size I got. This product is fat free, lactose free, gluten free, cholesterol free, and contains no trans fats. Other than a bit of sugar, it’s really not that bad for you. It was so hot that mine started to melt pretty quick in the sun. I give the mango flavor a huge thumbs up. I actually like it better than the pineapple:

I really like Dole Whips and I think a lot of other people do as well. I’d really like to see Six Flags setup a Dole Whip bar somewhere in the park where you can not only get all seven flavors, but also mixes of the flavors for different combinations. For example, an orange/vanilla twist produces a creamsicle flavor:

      Don’t worry, Mike. I’m having way too much fun to quit doing this any time soon. I’m just putting out a lot of content now because I’m trying to document everything in the park and also get my name out there. I’m probably the newest guy to the theme park blogosphere and I’m trying to build up my followers. This past year has been a huge learning curve for me. There’s always something going on or changing in the park, so as long as I’m having fun and you guys are enjoying what I’m writing about, I’ll stick around for awhile. Of course, clicking on an ad every now and then will also help me to keep doing what I’m doing. 😉

        You may be the newest guy, but in my opinion, you’re definitely one of the best covering Magic Mountain.

    Have you ever considered interviewing current/former employees of the park? During my 8 years there we had a lot of fun working the rides. I remember one summer when the Ninja crew realized the curtain behind the storage area for the poless used for the overflow queue line was were the frigghtfest props were stored and every few days the would sneek in and grabb a severed arm and toss it in the jetstream flume. I would make it all the waay down to the turn table and get wedged between boats! Another time the entire night shift of Superman got fired when they decided to ride the it standing up with no restraints. There undoing was the on ride photo booth. One time I was working the sky tower obervation deck on a slow day and when my co-worker took all the guests back down I ran down stairs and looked at the folks waiting to go up. I chose one person and memorized what they were wearing and when I heard the elevator start I called the elevator and told him I was security and we had a report of someone going up to the tower and begin shooting from it. I then gave him description of the person I saw get on. When he got to the top he was as white as a ghost.

    Just thought I would share.
