1983 Birthday Party at Magic Mountain for some Lucky Kids

I really enjoyed this video uploaded by JRaines, not just because it happens to capture some classic Magic Mountain footage, but for what you see throughout the video. Kids earnestly and honestly excited about going to a “magic” birthday experience. Makes me wish my family owned a video camera back in the day.

  1. This is just really a wonderful video, even beyond capturing the excitement of visiting Magic Mountain it’s a beautiful slice of the 80s.

    Really nice video, and apparently he has another video of his parents today, so interesting to see how they’ve grown.

    Thanks for posting this!
