The rides are fun and attractions good but it is pricey. The kids enjoy going just wish it was a little more budget friendly.

This park treated their animals terribly. They were in tiny cages with no stimulation. Many of the animals also had blood on them. I will never go back here. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ABUSE!

Good amusement rides. I do not think amusement rides and animals are a good mix. The noise and vibration is not good for the animals and sea creatures. The dolphins seemed bored and depressed, Ray's had bloody wings, shark had banged up bloody nose. Animals...More

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has amazing rides, especially Medusa and the Joker, but sadly it's various ride maintenances mean the experience is lacking. You have a feeling the park could use some extra love - be in the settings, which always have chipped paint or...More
