from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
With so many choices, where do you begin? Right here. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is a 135-acre animal theme park located in Vallejo, California. The park includes a plethora of pulse-pounding roller coasters, to gentler options for tots.

At the heart of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is its diverse animal program, where guests, young and old, can enjoy strolling through the LAND area of the park to see beautiful cats, such as African lions, Bengal and Siberian tigers and cougars relaxing in their tranquil outdoor habitats.

In SEA, various marine mammals, such as bottlenose dolphins, Pacific walruses, California sea lions, Pacific harbor seals and our aquatic bird species, endangered African penguins, can be found. Walk through the serene Butterfly Habitat or gaze at the often misunderstood sharks in the Shark Experience

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom offers unique opportunities to meet animals truly up-close and personal. From your first step into the park, you might see exotic parrots and macaws; at the main plaza, or see dolphins swimming via an underwater viewing window at Dolphin Harbor.

For those that wish to engage with animals directly, there are ample opportunities to meet, see, touch and feed a variety of animal species. Each operating day, there are limited spaces available where you can feed a seal or sea lion at Seal Cove or feed a giraffe at the Giraffe Encounter (additional fee required).

Throughout the day, you won’t want to miss any of our entertaining and informational animal presentations. See marine mammal specialists take our two-ton walruses through a series of unbelievable behaviors,and the Odin’s Temple of the Tiger demonstration show is a one-of-a-kind experience that proves that cats really do like to swim.

For fans of our feathered friends, our animal care specialists show that macaws and cockatoos have distinct personalities at Discovery Theater and there’s no doubt that every animal, big or small, has a place in the ecosystem. Not to miss is the Aquaped Waterworks Sea Lion Show and the energetic Drench! dolphin show at Toyota Stadium. During special times like Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park, we re-theme these for the occasion!

The family and I traveled down to Vallejo California for a day at Six Flags. We had a great time on most of the roller coasters. There is absolutely something for every family member to enjoy. Getting out of the park can be a pain, so please take your time or just wait for the parking lot to thin out. Have Fun, it's a great day to be had by the family.

Dirty, unorganized and slow operations but a few good rides including the amazing Joker. Food lines are horrible!

"Lots of rides closed, but still had a blast."

We came here on a Sunday in the winter so we were expecting some of the rides to be closed. There were probably about 5 or 6 closed, which was more then we expected. Regardless, we still had a blast. We still got to ride the Joker, Medusa, Kong etc. It was my kids first trip to a real theme park and the loved the rides. Much more exciting then what they are used to at the county fair. The most we waited in line this off season day was about 30 mins, but other than that every ride was less than a 5 minute wait. Food was disappointing in that the options are all junk food. Some healthier options would have been appreciated. All in all a great family visit!

"One of the weaker Six Flags parks"

I recently visited Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and I didn't have the highest expectations for this park. I came primarily for the roller coasters so this review will be primarily based off of that. I would say their selection of coasters was just ok. Joker and Superman Ultimate Flight were fun but nothing mind blowing. Medusa and V2 were also good. Boomerang and Kong however were just awful experiences. Every coaster had one train operations besides Medusa and despite low crowd levels lines were still longer than they should of been especially for Joker and Superman.The park overall looks nice but is littered with ads. The themes are very minimal on the rides, in the Joker line they were playing the Superman theme which doesn't make any sense at all. The animals were a unique touch to a six flags park but some of the exhibits were kind of dirty. The Shark exhibit was littered with fly's by its entrance as well. Food options wern't very good. Everything was overpriced but they had a ok variety. Overall if you need a day to kill and your in the bay area I would reccomend it but if you had to choose between this park and California's Great America I would recommend you go to Great America instead.

"Okay after the long wait of confusion"

We were planning a great day at the park with the kids, bought tickets online at the hotel we were staying at as a perk price. The hotel front desk screwed up and got us tickets for two weeks away. We sat at the ticket booth for nearly 2 hours for the supervisor to figure out how to fix our tickets. They ended up refusing our tickets and then charging us for daily tickets, which did not reflect the discount we should of got. So they cancelled those tickets and started over, in all charging our card 4 times. Once it was all done, we were finally able to enjoy the park, but the rudeness of the staff to begin with just really made it hard to enjoy our trip. We'll try again another time, hopefully without the confusion.
