Where are we going today?

Thrills, animals, family rides, excitement, entertainment, shows....you must be at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is an incredible theme park just jam packed with fun and adventure for the whole family - no matter what age!

First, there are the rides! If you like thrills, then you have some serious coasters to take on! You will find some of the tallest, wildest, fastest and most stomach churning rides in the entire country...are you brave?

You can hurtle down a trio of high speed loops on the Boomerang Coaster...and then go BACKWARDS! You can take on the Dare Devil Chaos Coaster....UPSIDE DOWN!  You can get tangled round the five inversions on Kong, and you can drop 90 feet on Roar....at 50mph!

Screamers, verticals, and gravity defying rides all await those brave family members who love some thrills!

But don't worry if you have little thrill seekers or prefer the calmer rides, because Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has plenty of options for you too!  The Acme Fun Factory is a super fun two story indoor playhouse filled with foam, a swinging ship is ready to give kids a fun voyage, and there are hot air balloons, trains, buses and mini coasters all waiting for those younger kids to enjoy them!

Let's not forget about the cute animal attractions, where kids can have come face to face with lions, tigers and even elephants! Six Flags also offers great personal experiences with them.

With entertainment and shows to add to all the family fun, you might even have to go back for more!

    I want to thank Victoria Leon-Guerrera that works at the Kodak Photos. She gave the BEST customer service ever. We took our family of 15 on Monday July 21,2014 to your park. My husband and I left early with the photo tickets in my purse. I thought we were going to have to drive all the back to pick the pictures. Which is almost a two hour drive, but I spoke to Victoria and she told me she could mail them to us. She was a life saver. Also wanted to say that family had a wonderful time!

    Thank You again

    Came here for my 26th birthday (yes, I am a child at heart) and I was really impressed - even with all of the terrible ways the park robs you of money. $20 to park, $1 for lockers each time you need to put your backpack up (they don't let you take backpacks in line for the larger roller coasters, no holding it for others either, it's just a no-go), expensive food (SUPER unhealthy, unvegetarian) but it was STILL SO WORTH IT! I grew up with six flags over Georgia and this is not only a theme park but a zoo too! The animals were such an amazing aspect...Read More

    Worst six flags I have ever experienced! Customer service throughout the park and manger at the customer relations was horrible! The shows are a waste of time and not entertaining. The food is way overpriced and nasty. The rides are really bad...I have never been to a six flags where the rides were not thrilling. Rides for kids in between big and small don't exist. I definitely would not let them on the roller coasters after having my head and body thrown around a horrible ride! The park makes you pay extra for things that my kids wanted...Read More

    New to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom? Pro tip: bring layers, as the temperature feels like it drops sharply between daytime and evening. More so when it's evening and you're sailing through the air on one of the aerial high-velocity rides. Also bring lots and lots of cash. You will be nickel-and-dimed for the most basic functions. For example: No bags, no loose items on rides, you must use the pay lockers. The lines for the main attractions of course are long, but they move quickly enough. Definitely try the Medusa. Finally, no amusement part visit...Read More

    My partner and I became Season Pass holders at the beginning of the 2013-14 Season, and we have overall been enjoying the pass. I myself had been to SFDK a couple of times prior to becoming a pass holder, and although I have visited many other Six Flags parks around the U.S,, I was ok with being a Season Pass holder here, since I now live in the Bay Area. We have friends down in So Cal we go visit now and again and so we go to SFMM as well. SFDK is WAY LESS $$$ for the season pass than GA in Santa Clara, (however they have a drop tower), but they...Read More

I grew up with six flags over Georgia and this is not only a theme park but a zoo too! The animals were such an amazing aspect of this place - especially feeding the giraffe for $5 (the cheapest food you can buy in the park is for the giraffes apparently). Most of the animals, especially the big cats sleep for 20 hours a day so expect a lot of sleeping animals, but it's awesome nonetheless. What really set our experience apart were the shows. The Cirque Dreams act with the dolphins continues to be one of the most amazing performances I've seen in my life (head to head headstand - just think about that). The sea lion show was adorable and quirky and the big cat lion show was simply incredible to see a cat dive for scraps of meat. The superman, medusa and boomerang rides were our favorite. Find a way to sneak food in, bring a water bottle and you'll have an amazing time here.

The park makes you pay extra for things that my kids wanted to do as well, such as the go karts and other activities similar to those. The animals that are there are in small cages but look healthy but seem to be living cruel cramped lives. Bathrooms are disgusting. Parking is a nightmare! Not only are you forced to park half a mile away, but then you either have to wait half an hour for a trolley, or make the journey on foot! I would not recommend this park to anyone!

Finally, no amusement part visit is complete without funnel cake. Get some at the Cold Stone Limited Funnel Cakes near the entrance.

My partner and I became Season Pass holders at the beginning of the 2013-14 Season, and we have overall been enjoying the pass. I myself had been to SFDK a couple of times prior to becoming a pass holder, and although I have visited many other Six Flags parks around the U.S,, I was ok with being a Season Pass holder here, since I now live in the Bay Area. We have friends down in So Cal we go visit now and again and so we go to SFMM as well. SFDK is WAY LESS $$$ for the season pass than GA in Santa Clara, (however they have a drop tower), but they have more coasters at SFDK. So, we went to Fright Fest in 2013 (HORRIBLY CHEESEY), we were scarier than the unemployed teenage actors playing zombies. Holiday in the Park was somewhat pretty, but without real snow, it lacks that ":MAGICAL" winter feeling. I have serious problems with animal cruelty, and although it appears that the animals at SFDK are well cared for, I just can't shake the feeling that they are somewhat miserable. I would LOVE to swim with the dolphins, but it's an upcharge attraction that costs WAY TOO MUCH! Plus, the food choices are ALL overpriced and unappetizing. This is somewhat common of amusement parks anyway, so I'm not blaming SFDK specifically. Overall, IF they added a drop tower to their rides I would probably renew the season pass. As it is, I'm getting bored.
