Discovery Kingdom has it all. Fun rides for both big and little, live animals to view, dolphin show, tiger show, plus a few other shows we didn't get to see. A butterfly house, reptiles, penguins, and more. I was very impressed with all the restrooms strategically placed so you never had to walk far to get to one. Seems like... More

We have yearly passes that we pay monthly payments for. We only live about an hour away. It's nice to get away from the hot weather at home, and get out of the house. The kids always have a great time! There are rides for all ages. The animal shows are fun to watch more than once.

Perhaps this review is subject to bias since we were just at Disneyland last month, but I couldn't help but notice the lack of attention to detail throughout the park. Whether it was the disinterest of the employees or a lack of a clear organizational culture, there was garbage laying about throughout the grounds and many areas needing maintenance. Of... More

I took my two teenage grandkids last week. We were all quite disappointed, particularly with the closed rides. Frequent visitors told me this was typical, that every time they visit several popular rides are closed (for repair? for inclement weather, as one sign said? It was a pleasant summer day). The cost of admission is ridiculously high, and it doesn't... More

We have lived in the area for years but with our kids reaching the age 6 and 8, we were looking for a summer activity besides hiking to keep them active. Six Flags had the answer. Since we purchased and processed our season passes early, we received unlimited free parking for the rest of the year. We go about once... More

7/17/16 ~ Stood in line for 1.5 hours waiting to pick up my Membership Card because Guest Relations only had 2 windows open (out of 4 possible windows). While my friend stood in another line to optain her ticket for the day, a guest was having an argument with a team member. Instead of opening another booth for the waiting... More

Many rides broke down; despite a large crowd, vendors were closed; and the entertainment was sub-par. Definitely not the strongest representative of the Six Flags franchise.

I have been to this park several times over the past 15 years. However my recent trip on July 16th fell short. For starters why are there so few tram buses to take you from the parking lot to the front? The line to get on the tram when we were leaving the park was worse than some of the... More

Our kids will be so jealous when they find out we went without them. Great park with something for everyone from thrill rides to splash pads. We did the wildlife discovery and it was amazing. We were given a behind the scenes tour and pet a sloth, fed a giraffe and even fed a 350 lb tiger through a fence.... More

We visited the park on a Friday, so I had my concerns about long lines and being overly crowded. Fortunately, neither happened. Our family likes to ride the roller coasters and the longest we had to wait was almost an hour for the newest ride, "Joker." The rest of the rides had a 15 min wait time at most; but... More
