  • We only had 1 day to go and a few rides were broken down most the time. We only rode 3 rides the entire day. It was rainy but, was a great time with family and hoping next time all the rides are up. H...  more »

  • Went during March, 2018. The park was empty and lines were very short. We went on roller coasters only and can't comment on the zoo or animal shows. Plenty of parking and there's a shuttle to get you to the gates. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The rides were maintained and it was obvious safety is important. Got some chicken tenders and funnel cake for lunch. They were of good enough quality. Don't expect gourmet food.
  • Located about 40 minutes from San Francisco, Six Flag's Discovery Kingdom is a great place to enjoy a day out with the family. They have big coasters if you're a thrill seeker and plenty of enjoyable rides for the younger kids. I have five kids ranging from infant to teen and the park caters to all of their needs. I would also recommend getting a season pass or a membership! The prices are great and the bargain is even better! In California alone there are 4 parks that the passes work for so your days off could be filled with a dirrenent park visit!
  • If you plan to go more than once, do yourself a favor and get a season pass. Without it you have to pay $25 every time JUST TO PARK! Also the season dining pass really will pay for itself in just a few visits. With the $60 one (which, when I bought it, actually cost MORE than my actual pass to the park) you get lunch, a snack and a dinner, plus unlimited free refills on soft drinks. With meals averaging $14 each and snacks in the $7-$9 range, it's easy to see how this is a good deal. Though beware, the online brochure isn't up to date. I've been telling them every time I go that they still are using the 2016 one. Also there are times you have to get each food items, and sometimes those change without notice, especially during special events. So best to get there early. If lunch stops at 3:30, eat at 2:30. You still have a snack that you can get until 6 or later to get you to the dinner time. When it's busy, it can get really busy, but sometimes you'll find days that are almost dead. I went once and there wasn't any lines. Even the big coasters like Madeusa and the boomerang there was basically no line. Very nice to see occasionally. The selection of rides are good, food is good, attractions are entertaining if you like animals. Good way to spend a day, all in all
  • We get into the park and wait 2 hours to get on one of the rides and when we get on on of the workers told us there was a “no bag policy” so we had to go all the way back down and put our bags in a locker that only works for a 2 hour maximum time limit. So we go back up through the exit and they say we have to go get back in line. We tried explaining to the staff our situation and they did not let us on. Very bad experience, I would definitely prefer the six flags magic mountain in Valencia, in Southern California. The staff and ride policies are very flexible, rather than this six flags here. Very disappointing.
  • When people suggested that you should visit theme parks in the off season please listen. My family and I were able to go on every ride we wanted with no more than about a 5 minute wait. The food was good and most of the animals were available for viewing. I liked that they had employees at several of the animal areas giving information about them.
