We visited Discovery Kingdom mostly because we love the butterfly habitat. The park is well maintained and the rides seem modern and relevant. The parking is overpriced at $25- higher than Disneyland.... more »

I took my family here on 05/31/17 to celebrate my son's 13th birthday. I spent about $250 for 5 tickets plus parking. Everyone enjoyed the day. There were just a few rides down. Lines were not extreme... more »
M. and I were impressed with the coasters here. Not so much with the food service and the cost of parking, but it's a theme park; What are you going to do? I was most taken by the fact that the animals appear well cared for and not intensely bored or frustrated. Not that I would know either way, but they didn't seem bad off. I also liked having the option of walking through the animal areas; it was a nice respite from the chaos and overpopulation of the rest of the park with its noise and crowds. As for the rides, we went on a Friday afternoon and were able to ride each ride without waiting for more than 10-15 minutes, if we waited at all. The only exceptions were the rapds ride (
Sizable theme park with amazing rides, arcades, shows and plenty of excitement for children, teens and adults to enjoy. Prices for everything, including entry fees are pretty ridiculously high, and food is typical fast food and very overpriced. There's a few restaurants, which are also very pricey and with average food. Eat before you go, and bring a backpack with drinks and snacks if you can. Lockers are expensive but useful if you want to enjoy yourself and not carry everything around. Weekends during the summer are very crowded with extremely long lines, so plan ahead and go early during the week for the best stress free experience. As can be expected from theme parks, people from all walks of life will be here. Crazy loud kids with little to no supervision, creepy men and less desirables and low class people, so keep your eyes on your children and valuables at all times. Save a good amount of money beforehand, get a Flash Pass and Season Tickets. You get discounted drinks, free entry all season long and get to skip the long lines. If you plan well in advance, save up and follow these tips, you can be assured a good time and excellent memories.
It is the only amusement park in northern California with roller coasters and the guys in my family love the coasters. However, this park is not disabled friendly and seem to have no intention of changing that. Sad though true. The food options aren't bad and the food tastes pretty good too. With the season pass, included parking, and food pass option; it is possible to spend the whole day there and have it all be prepaid.
My family had a good time. Start out the park is clean. They do however need people to check the bathrooms throughout the day. The prices on souvenirs are surprising good. However, for a bottle of water is 7.50. There were quite a few areas that nats were swarming. The associates that we came a cross all seemed friendly and inviting.
On 7 April, my 3 girls (6, 8, 13 yrs old) visited the park and all went well until closing time. As we were preparing to leave, we encountered 2 park employees sweeping the grounds by the kids area. One of the young lady's dropped the "F" bomb, not once but 3X. I was shocked, appalled and embarrassed. I didn't say anything to her, but got a name and the following week left a message lodging a complain for the Operations Manager. I did not receive a follow up call by Week Two so I called again and left another message. In total, I left 3 messages for the OPS Manager, without ever receiving a return call. The lack of follow up sends a strong message that he/she does not care about their customers' experience and the performance of their staff members. Obviously, the Park is generating (via customers) so much money that customer service is NOT a priority. We currently have annual passes (4 years now) to Disneyland and although we paid a great deal more, it is so worth it to receive Top Notch Customer Service and enjoy an amazing family-oriented environment. This incident would absolutely never happen at Disney; their standards are well above what we experienced at 6 Flags. We will no longer visit Six Flags, Vallejo, and will terminate our passes. If enough customers who receive unsatisfactory service from Management and/or witness unacceptable behavior from other Park Staff, would cancel their passes the company would get the message. Loss of profit will always get their attention.
