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!

"2018 spring break"
April, 2018
Six flags was the end of our kids spring break. They loved all the rides. They were excited to see the animals, looney tunes characters, and super hero rides. They played the carnival games won prizes. They had a blast and want to come back for summer break

"Best ticket prices!"

I highly recommend purchasing Six Flags discovery kingdom tickets through this website. It's a way better deal than purchasing through the Six Flags website or at the park.

"Trainer for a Day - Wonderful "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We gave our 14 year old daughter the Trainer for a Day ( TFAD) as a birthday present. The reservations were easy on-line and any additional questions are quickly and professionally answered by the director, Joyce. My daughter required a chaperone - I just had to call and give my name. No additional cost for chaperone. Parking is free for the program- just follow their instructions. The program ran from 9-4. Joyce called the day before to confirm and answered all last minute questions to ensure a successful day. We were met at the the Dolphin Discovery Education building by Kera ( spelling?) - she was the penguin/giraffe trainer. We were given a locker and our lunch order taken then we were whisked off for the day. Although I was a chaperone I was able to take photos, ask questions and be nearby - I just did not touch animals or do any of the training. The first stop was penguins - we saw their indoor habitat, breeding area and outdoor area. Kera was super informative and really taught a lot about the penguins. My daughter even got to pet one of the more gentle ones. The next stop was giraffes. Activities included learning about the giraffes, the enclosures and feeding needs schedules- then some poop raking, alfalfa prep for dinner and then feeding the giraffes leaves and working on training the giraffe to give kisses! The dolphin trainer, Jen Schwab, came and escorted us to the dolphin portion of the day. Wet suit was provided and into the dolphin pools they went for dolphin education and training. A lot of interaction with the dolphins but be prepared not a lot of in the water - there was one opportunity to hold onto a dolphin and have it pull you - about 30 seconds. My daughter did not have a good hold and let go - she did not get a second chance. Lunch was typical 6 Flags food - we ate with the Jen - she was super enthusiastic and informative. After lunch there were a few minutes before the dolphin show where we got to hang out with the dolphins - they love to be nearby and give them treats. We were seated in the VIP section of the dolphin show and my daughter got to do a little execution of training skills she had learned. After dolphins was the seal/seal lion and walrus potion of the day. I would say this was the least organized piece of the day. We often felt in the way and the trainers did not really take my daughter, talk to her or show her what it was to be a trainer for these animals. We watched the show first, met the animals personally in the back, she got to try and help train a seal to do kisses and she did feed Sarge, the massive sea lion. The walrus was sleeping so that show and experience did not happen so the TFAD program ended about 30 minutes early. If you are an adult - note that they take quite a few photos during the day which are available for purchase for $60 in addition to the one free photo included with your TFAD payment. We would like to give special thanks to Kera and Schwab - they clearly love what they do and were excellent guides and trainers! Our daughter loved the day and said, “It was the best birthday present ever!”.

14 year old daughter did this for her birthday yesterday. Actually got in pool with dolphins, did care and hand feeding the giraffes (and even shoveled stuff and helped cleaned stalls, and helped train seals to kisses. 7 hours worth, including lunch, wet suit/shower/towel, and amusement park at 4 pm at the end of the day. Wife was allowed to tag along for no additional cost to both watch and take pictures (in addition to the included pro photographer, one pic for free or whole day’s for under $60). ‘Best birthday present ever!’ reports my daughter.

I was there at six flags discovery kingdom on Saturday May 5. I have the diamond elite membership with the meal plan of 2 meals and a snack. Between 5:30 and 6:00 pm I stopped at the Totally Kickin Chicken to get an ice cream cone that was on the snack list. There were 2 women working in there on was a older lady and the other was a younger one. When First when up to the winder the younger one said that they stop doing the meal plan deals at 5:30 pm. So I thought that was wrong so I went to guest relations and got the paper which stated a different time. I went back to the window and the older lady was like "oh look the people are coming back to get their free sh*t", I didn't think anything about it when it happened but as the day went on I was getting pretty mad about it. I pay alot of money every month to get the benefits from my memberships I do not appreciate to be treated like that and if it happens again i will go directly to guest relations and demand to speak to their boss.

"Cool place"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 04, 2018 NEW
This place is really cool, it has some good roller coaster rides and animal exhibits, with some amazing animal shows. We took our 4 year old daughter. First time going to this park and were dissatisfied because nearly all of the kids rides and play areas were closed. It did not appear they were closed for repairs, but were closed because they didn’t want to pay staff to have them open. Really enjoyed the animals which is why I gave a good rating. Also, when everything is open I believe this place is a really blast. Because the kids rides and play areas were closed my daughter only really enjoyed the carnival games and the butterfly garden. I personally liked the tigger show.

The Medusa Rollercoaster was awesome. Superman seemed short. Better to buy a Flash pass (and go less frequently to these parks) then spend your time waiting in the queue. Employees are friendly. Food courts were slow in service and quality is poor, better to bring your own. Bear in mind that this park has a no-bag policy, which means you have to store your bags in a locker (for a few extra bucks), otherwise they won’t let you ride the rollercoasters. After 25 thrill rides, we can survive a while without now.
