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!

My husband and I recently visited the park. We purchased the flash passes and i will tell you...well worth it! We had practically no wait time! It let us enjoy the park without being miserable in the long lines and heat! Food wasnt bad and the rides and aquariums were amazing. Kid friendly but also adult friendly. We want to return soon!

"Reservesanfrancisco was tops!"
September, 2018
We found the price on reservesanfrancisco to be the cheapest. One minor hiccup was that I had to call to make sure tickets were verified since I didn't get the email right away. But upon arrival at 6 Flags, I just showed my phone/ bar code at the GATE (not will call), and we were buzzed right through!

6 flags had VERY age appropriate things for our 5 and 2 year old. They loved it!

Worst part is parking, which is about half a mile away. No joke. You can take a very crowded shuttle? Or walk with a crowd down a narrow path.

"NO FOOD????????"
September, 2018
Me and my friends were going to six flags and just as we were walking in they told us that we needed to through out a big thing of kettle corn. We asked if they could hold on to it but they said no. Then they said that we could put in the locker but the locker was 12 dollars. You could see a big barrel of food in the back that customers tyres to bring in. It waisted so much time that we could have spent having fun. While we were waiting they threw out baby food and medications. WORST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!!

"Cheaper than the park itself."
September, 2018
Booking tickets online here was alot cheaper than buying at the park and even online. Minus 1 star because tickets are not emailed right away. Take 30 min to 2 hours. Kind of a hassle sometimes if you buy right before you go to the park. Other wise I'll use this site again.

"Till next time"
August, 2018
I had so much fun and loved the dolphin show it was definitely what made my trip worth it. Staff was polite and very attentive to everyone. There are long lines for the games. My favorite was medusa... I think food is way to expensive and they dont make it adorable for all families to come enjoy the attractions.

August, 2018
Mi nino de 7 anos see divirtio, en Los juegos que se pudo subir, no en todos alcazaba la altura Maxima y habia varios juegos que estaban cerrados, El parque cierra muy temprano, 8:00 pm, compramos Los vasos para estar haciendo rellenos de Las bebidas, lo puedes hacer en cualquier restaurant, solo que llegandoce Las 8:00pm y ya cierran Los restaurants, ya no te atienden no te quieren service Ni agua, estan Los empleados cerrando Las ventanillas y limpiando y no te quieren atender, see me hizo muuy grocero, Los juegos Paran igual a la misma hora y 15 minutos antes te dicen que ya no te puedes subir porque ya van a cerrar! Lo que si me gusto fue Los shows que tienen con Los delfines, Los Tigres y Las focas,Las filas para subirte a Los juegos no estan tan largas y no duras mas de 10 minutos esperando en fila, y El precio para la admission Al parque es muy accessible,.

Overall lots of fun there flash pass is defiantly worth the $40 highly recommend it works so well and with the feather great food there is NOT GOOD but edible rodes are great and overall was a very fun place did. Not like the flash pass letting you select rides that were closed and having to walk all the way across the park to find out you need to select another ride maybe it’s better in peak season but overall good for the time of year I’m sure hard to find good workers

We only had 1 day to go and a few rides were broken down most the time. We only rode 3 rides the entire day. It was rainy but, was a great time with family and hoping next time all the rides are up. Has sea lions and other cool things to feed. The roller coasters that were open were fun and we can’t wait to go back!! Update. Went back November 2018. Place is awesome. The only I wish us they would get there early and get the rides going before 11. It was 1-2 before all the rides were going

First off, we were not aware that Six Flags Discovery Kingdom existed. We were headed to San Francisco via I80 West and as we entered the Vallejo area we saw the park. I thought we were at the Magic Mountain park..wrong. We ended up purchasing a seasons pass [ cheap in my book ] and had a GREAT time! This was Halloween time and the park was decorated to the Halloween theme. The night time was the best. Scary Zombies, smokey alley and creepy atmosphere. The rides were all in operation and so were most of the animal shows. We didn't know they had sharks, penguins, dolphins, tigers, alligators and more. Well worth the trip and I know we will be back soon. Had a great time. Would recommend this stop to anyone.

"So many fun (scary) rides. But way finding signage is not up to par"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 02, 2018 NEW
During my first visit to the park I really had a great time. The Joker and Superman were adequately exhilarating for me, and I didn't get to go on any more as I had arrived too late, but it was in the month of October and I arrived just at dusk. There was lots going on, but as they say, when way finding signage is good you don't notice it, but when its bad you do. The signage format used throughout the park just didn't;t seem that good for me. Maybe I'm just being too critical, but when I get into the park I need to be able to simply see: Where do I go for my Flash Pass? Anyway, your mileage may vary, maybe it's just me. Regardless you will have a great time I am sure.
