Newsom made the announcement in a news conference at the famous Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park in Valencia.

The 50,000 tickets, which have a combined value of $4.5 million, are part of the state's $116.5 million Vax for the Win sweepstakes.

On Tuesday, Newsom held a drawing at Universal Studios Hollywood in which 10 Californians won $1.5 million each. To be entered into the drawing, you must have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

The free tickets will be valid through Sept. 6 at all four Six Flags parks: Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, Hurricane Harbor Concord or Hurricane Harbor Los Angeles.
