driving to Valencia - Santa Barbara or Hollywood?

We have the option of going to Six Flags MM either driving from Santa Barbara on a Thursday, or from central Hollywood on a Friday. I can see that Hollywood is a lot closer - but with traffic, is there much difference in travel time?

And would the park be much busier on a Friday compared to a Thursday?

thanks for any help.

If you haven't already done so, your chosen day may be determined by whether or not Six Flags is open. Generally, it is open Friday through Sunday through fall and winter. Of course, holidays will have special hours, too.

sorry, I should have mentioned - we're going in July, so i believe it's open daily then?

Me? I'd do it on my way down from Santa Barbara taking the 101, then switching to Highway 126 in Ventura that drops you straight off in Valencia. You should be able to avoid most, if not all traffic on that route.
