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!

"Old and Tired"
March, 2019
This used to be MarineWorld. Then it was purchased by Six Flags. Now it isn’t sure if it’s an animal park or a roller coaster park...so it’s doesn’t do a particularly good job at either. Half the rides weren’t running the day we visited.

Many thrill rides were closed. Most animal exhibits were empty. Medusa broke down twice. Most snack stands were closed. Long lines at the few that were open. Kinda depressing.

Tip: Don't do the $5 locker rental at individual rides. It's only good for twp hours, but they don't tell you this until after you pay for it. Ripoff...

"Very Good Experience!"
November, 2018
We purchased the tickets a few days before going to the park and the day at the park for a late arrival. The air quality was down and the park closed but we were able to get a complimentary pass for another day. So Reserve San Francisco worked for us very smoothly and we enjoyed a few hours of the park without any lines.

Tip: Its good to plan alittle more than we do. There is a lot to see at the park and a lot of walking so wear comfy shoes and arrive early.

"Great experience!"
September, 2018
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.

We've been to this park a few years ago and had a great time. Now that my daughter is tall enough for most rides, we bought a membership for the family and came back. It was a complete waste. Despite the park not being very crowded, it was severely under staffed, making lines unnecessarily long. The staff was polite, but not knowledgeable on anything. All this is forgivable; however, only getting to ride maybe three rides all day is not. Almost every ride in the park malfunctioned. We'd wait in line, get to the front and then be told there were technical issues. One or two rides, I can understand, but almost all if them several times during the day is not ok. The park is in dire need of maintenance and upkeep. Not worth the time to come.

"Worst park ever"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed April 14, 2019 NEW
The worst time in a park in the USA. Rides broken down. Took two hours in line @ Superman because it broke twice. The food lines are horrible. One hour and a half for the burger. I gave up. Same window to pay and pick up the food. People were eating their fries at the window while waiting for their burgers, while we watched them from the line. Kids sitting on the floor by the window. The managers probably need to go to Disney to learn how to run a park. It was a Sunday. I am sad to write this review I wish them well and hope they will improve.

I went to this park and enjoyed myself so much I got a Membership/Season Pass. I simply LOVE the rides. Wonder Woman is my favorite, so fast and smooth and intense! There are lots of rides for my grandson and he loves meeting the various cartoon characters. The combination of lions, giraffes, butterflies, sharks, penguins, manta rays, birds, plus the tiger, dolphin, and seal/sea-lions shows, combined with the rides and characters makes for a full and mind-stretching experience. I highly recommend getting a season/membership pass with the food pass. Parking is included and it is such a great deal. If you get a membership, you also get amazing deals on the "skip to the front of the line" pass, which allows you to go on tons of rides. Also, they offer special deals to bring friends at a discount. :-) I have become a serious fanboy of this park. I look forward to visiting many more times!

Definitely the most standout, AWFUL time I've had at a theme park. The theme at Discovery Kingdom is "Broken Down theme park." I spent hours here on Sunday and every ride I tried to go on was broken down, or just closed for the day. Such a shame. Medusa, broken down, Kong, closed, Wonder Woman, Nope, Joker, Nope, the new harlequin, not even running...Seriosuly?! This was a joke, I spent hours in line waiting and waiting and every time I was in line the ride broke down, it sounded like I wasn't the only person dealing with this reality that day. Don't waste peoples time Six flags, and you the reader, don't waste your time, go somewhere else.
