As the title suggests getting the Gold Membership in combination with the Meal Pass is really worth it! You get Lunch Dinner & a snack EVERY time you visit the park. When it's hot out and your walking around all day it's important to stay hydrated so we also opted for the Souvenir Refilable cups. That way when we return... More

We have had memberships at Discovery KIngdom for more years than I can count. My oldest Grandson and I went to enjoy the sunshine and get a break from the house. Now don't get me wrong we had a good time but were disapointed limited shows, not focussing on the animals enough, which is hard for me because I can't... More

I have noticed if I arrive at Six Flags maybe 2 hours before closing that the lines aren't as long. And I can ride more rides and it's not as many people. Had a lot of fun on a Sunday evening. Basically since I've had my season pass this Sunday I arrived at 5 and the park closed at 7... More

This is a great place for families-something for all ages! We love to share it with our family when they come to visit. A great safe place for the older kids to enjoy on their own.

Six Flags has always been an awesome place to bring mixed ages, but the Season Pass with the new Food Pass added on takes away stress and planning but most of all is an Awesome value!!!

Where else can you ride a rollercoaster, pet a dolphin, and meander through a greenhouse filled with butterflies? No where but here. On top of that, Vallejo has great weather year-round. This is the most fun you and your family can have in one location.

It's one of the few parks left where you can bring your kids to see the animals. It also has some pretty cool rides for all

A fun family day at a reasonable price. Food is very costly and a locker to store food you bring along (you can't take it in the park) is a little costly, too.

I haven't been here in years and decided to go for the day with some friends. As we walked around I was appalled by the way the animals were being treated. Loud music blasting everywhere, people screaming from the rides, the poor elephants looked like they were beaten down and miserable from giving rides and shows for years. The white... More
