This park is much smaller than Magic Mountain, but it does have nice animal exhibits and shows. The food unfortunately is not good. Many of the food vendors are out of ingredients... read more

Every time I've been here, I'm amazed at the number of teens smoking dope in plain sight, broad daylight. My Vallejo PD friends say I have no business taking my family there, as it's crime-ridden.

This park is much smaller than Magic Mountain, but it does have nice animal exhibits and shows. The food unfortunately is not good. Many of the food vendors are out of ingredients so they offer substitute ingredients such as rice in place of beans. The food is also usually under cooked, almost raw. The parking is awkward, with people crossing... More

We live going to Discovery Kingdom.. The best way to plan a trip is to go at opening of the park and also to buy a season pass if you live in the area.. Totally worth it!

For this being the second week of the parks opening season there were quite a few rides that were closed or in the process of being repaired. These rides should of been repaired before the season started. This park should be attended by families with children as they mostly cater to them. They do have adult rides but it is... More

My wife and I took our 2 year old grandson and were joined by her sister and also 2 year old. Wow, did we have a blast. The live animals weren't only fantastic to the kids but also to us adults. There are guides stationed at each attraction to answer questions (ie I didn't know tigers were territorial). The young... More

We went to the Dolphin Discovery at Six Flags and it was a thrill of a lifetime. The Education Instructor Chelsea was so engaging and personable as was Austin the Dolphin Trainer, both made the whole experience so much more special. Skip the wine tasting in Napa and treat yourself to an experience that you will NOT forget! Still smiling... More

We visited the park on a Sunday and arrived as it opened. We had no wait times for any rides and hit all of the coasters twice in a row, just for starters. We walked right on to Medusa, V2, Superman, Joker and more! As the day went on, we saw the penguins, sea lions, walrus, dolphins, rays, took in... More

Maybe it was Halloween weekend but still the lines were so long and parking lots full. Many unsatisfactory remarks were heard from customers there who expected to see a themed fest but were unaware that the cost was additional. The general feeling was that it was over priced. I needed a good coffee shop but didn't find one. There should... More

We bought season passes a few weeks ago as we like to go to Magic Mountain & Fright Fest and always have a blast. We decided to use our passes to go to Discovery Kingdom & try their Fright Fest since it's closer to home & we have the season passes. We were very disappointed in the lack of organization... More
