Description

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!

We had a great time in six flags with my son, but sad thing that 4 rides was not operating. Overall I will give 3 stars.

"Fun!"
May, 2018
I booked tickets through reserve Sam Francisco the morning of my planned trip to Six Flags. The purchase was easy and fast. Even better, I got the tickets about $12 cheaper than on the official Six Flags website! The lines weren’t too bad considering there were about 3,000 kids there on field trips; started clearing out around 3pm. I had a good time and the people working there are great. They’re very friendly (considering the job they have) and they’re very thorough on making sure you’re safe. The only complaint I have is that the beer is too expensive.

My letter to Six Flags, still unanswered. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom During a trip to Ca, I planned a day at Discovery Kingdom. My family members already had passes for our hometown Six Flags. I decided to get a membership instead of a day ticket when I saw, on your website, a claim that memberships ( doesn’t specify any one in particular, or have an asterisk indicating further info) include unlimited soft drinks, among other benefits. This is something that adds up with a family, for the whole day. I took a screen shot, so I can prove where this statement is made on your website. Imagine my surprise when I’m told I need to buy SEASON long cups for $25, not the day cups, but the season cups, even though I know I won’t be coming back even once. Of course there are three different prices for each type of cup, depending on how many you buy. Is this intentionally to mislead and confuse people ? I suspect so. After speaking to membership services, who said yes, there is a statement on the website, that says “memberships” come with unlimited sot drinks, your particular membership does not. Yes , they agreed, it’s very misleading, but if you dig deep into the fine print, pages later, you can find that info. Then after I pay the HUGE sum for the cups, I stand in line at not one, but two different drink stands, both whom were out of carbonation, but let people wait in line for 15 minutes in the scorching heat, and told each person individually, instead of making an announcement. And neither stand had any drinks except soda, which they tried to talk us into drinking flat ! I had also called ahead to see if my daughters food plans would be valid at this park and was told they would. Which, of course, was not true. As I found out when they tried to use them and were very embarrassed, and had to wait until I could bring them cash to get their food. When we arrived, while we were walking in, a group of black girls and a group of Mexican girls started fighting and cursing at each other in the line from the parking lot. I never saw any security in this park, and no one was around to try to stop them. There were also teenage boys jumping over the fences to get into the park. There was also a man walking in as we walked out who was smoking a joint and drinking Corona in a bottle. Again, no security anywhere. Several of the rides were not working, and as we waited for the joker, for an extremely long time, I began to suspect it was not working either. When I asked, I was told they were “working on it.” Would have been nice if they had announced that, instead of letting us wait in the heat. Your advertising is very misleading, staff very rude, bathrooms filthy, and security extremely lacking. I would like to cancel my membership, effective immediately, and receive a refund for the money I have spent thus far. “State and federal laws are in place to protect consumers from false or misleading advertising. These laws make deceptive claims illegal. No business may make false, misleading, or deceptive claims about a product regarding its: Price.” I feel that you are violating FTC law with your false and deceptive advertising and I really have no intention of ever visiting one of the Six Flags parks again. Would like to hear back from someone as soon as possible. Thank you, Scott Spencer

"Fun Rides and Good Animal Exhibits, NOT Well Maintained"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 09, 2018 NEW
Six Flags in this location is an oasis of fun in an area where there aren't many other theme parks. Our group had been doing a lot of nature-based activities, and the kids were ready for a theme park, so it fit the bill. In addition to some fun rides, there were some good animal exhibits and decent eating choices. They had an on-line summer sale going on for $41.99 per ticket, which we thought was a good price except that parking was a whopping $25. Our biggest disappointment though was how filthy and poorly maintained this park is. It is very, very dirty everywhere you go. The restaurant we ate in seemed clean, but while I was eating it was hard to forget what I had noticed about the conditions in all other areas of the park. There were benches everywhere but they were extremely worn and dirty, and the fences and trim on buildings were worn, decayed, and needing paint jobs. My thought was if this is how they maintain the facilities, how safe are the rides and how well cared for are the animals? We went to one show, the dolphin one, and it was very good. I have motion sensitivity so only wanted to go on one ride other than the water rides (which were super fun): the Joker roller coaster, which was closed down for at least two hours after we had stood in line for 45 minutes.

We went on July 5th. You have to pay to park on top of the admission. I was not impressed with the park. A lot of the thrill rides were closed. When The Joker finally opened we did go on that and it was my favorite of the few rides that I did go on. Had to wait in line a long time for Medusa as it wasn't running. Once we finally did get to go on it the people in front of us were having a hard time with their seatbelt. The ride operator didn't care. We had to wait an extra turn to get on as he wouldn't open the door to allow us on the ride. Plus a kid got stuck in the door, his parent was screaming for help and he did finally open it for that kid. The rest of the rides were just average. I have no intention of ever returning to this park. It was not worth the price.

"Terrible Park Conditions"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed July 06, 2018 NEW
The park was maintained terribly. The park itself was dirty and unkempt and the animal enclosures were as well. It was a waste of a day and money it was overpriced for the low quality of service and rides. I would rather drive all the way to Monterrey for animals or go nearby to Scandia for games and rides. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
