When you read all the ads for food you would think its a restaurant with a theme park in it, wrong! There are some places that sell food it's expensive as hell and lines for food are longer then rides for rides. The animal attractions are lame! Let the poor suckers go please! If your into rides rollercoaster that's a... More

Let's start with the parking. Nightmare. If don't want to wait for a tram, the walk is long. and add that to the inside the park walking and you will be worn out. This is for kids - teenage through physically fit 50's. Some of these rides could get a confession out of any prisoner, they are torture, beat you... More

Disappointed in this park. I felt bad for the animals in small spaces. The seals were overcrowded in not much more than a backyard pool. The Penguins were overcrowded in a small area. The elephants looked tired having people riding on their backs for 15 bucks each. That is cruel. A couple of big roller coasters, but the day we... More

We haven't been to this Six Flags park before, decided it was worth a try for a Daddy-Daughter date to try out these roller coasters... my daughter just turned 14 and is getting brave enough to want to ride on them now. Had a great day with perfect weather and we went on a Thursday and the crowds were just... More

We loved Six Flags Discovery Kingdom! We went on a Thursday and there were virtually no lines, we rode many twice and one three or four times! The only thing is that we were looking forward to the Joker, which had mechanical difficulties for most of the day, we did not get to ride it until the very end of... More

Every ride stop working we spend more time waiting on maintenance than actually riding shows aren't as they used to be. Probably won't return kids didn't really like it. Needs a lot of improvement.

This place is so fun. There is always something to do or see. You can't see it all in one day so the Season Pass and Dining Pass are the way to go and well worth it. I am in my 50's and still had a great time with 2 little ones. We will be back soon.

Lots of great roller coasters. "Joker" was my favorite. Medusa was good too. If you're going multiple times in a year, the season pass and the food pass are the way to go. They'll pay for themselves in about 3 visits. Animal shows are a nice break from the rides.

We are season pass holder and go to the Six Flags in Valencia, CA. We went up to Vallejo to checkout Discovery Kingdom and we all loved it. There were attractions for the entire family. Our favorite was the butterfly house! The park does need to work on providing more shade. They have benches outside of the bigger rollercoasters but... More
