  • The only thing this place has is rides and shows. The whole place is falling apart, literally... benches, fences, gates, doors, everything is falling apart. They don’t keep up on maintenance or genera...  more »
  • My wife and I had an enjoyable day with the Holiday decorations and seeing all the animals. While we didn't go on any rides, we were able to have a relaxing day after the rush of Holiday preparations.  more »
  • Had a lot of expectations for Six Flags, but experience there was just so so. We went the day after Christmas. Overall, the wait wasn't so bad. The area for smaller kids looked really fun; but other r...  more »

  • This park is nice and nothing more. Unless you don’t have a choice go to Magic Mountain in LA instead. The only advantage at this park is the less crowd so you can enjoy the rides several times. There many nice restaurants close by like red lobsters. The season picture pass doesn’t not work at Magic Mountain so plan ahead. The staff is nice but very poor trained. For example, four different staff members gave me four different explanation on how to get and use the season picture pass
  • It's a great place for my daughter and friends to have a great time and I get some exercise walking all over the park with them. We have the deluxe meal plan and believe me it pays for its self...food option could be better but their trying. I see on yelp lots of staff complaints but maybe we've just been lucky. I've found the staff to be very nice and kind to me and my girls, what more can a mom ask for. Oh, the Joker kept having issues so kept my girls off. They could use some serious help in efficiency in the food courts. To much time in line for food. Other parks have it down.
  • Discovery Kingdom is a great mix of a zoo, and a theme park. Joker is a great coaster. It feels like you are going to fly out of the car. The dolphin show is great for the kids. It is similar to a show at Sea World. Lasso of truth is pretty fun, but the Tasmanian Devil ride is similar with no line. Season tickets are worth it, especially at the end of the year during the promotional period the gets you free parking. As an added benefit, it is the least expensive Six Flags pass, but can still provide access to all of the other parks.
  • Great rides, clean park, wonderful family environment with animal shows and a small zoo. They teach about conservation and the environment at the shows. They have rescued a lot of the animals and given them a wonderful life at this park. I've gone for many years and have only come to appreciate them more each year, as they always improve with time.
  • I've been coming here, since I was a little child. Back in the 70's it was at a different location. I believe it used to be in Santa Clara possibly? They then moved to Vallejo a long time ago. As I got older, I despised seeing these precious animals caged up! That broke my heart. They have rides, now. As a child, there was no rides at all. I have a ton of pics, when I was a child and came here. There's a lot of places to eat. There's a lot of walking, but places you can sit down and rest. There's restrooms, they're scattered throughout the large park. The prices have skyrocketed, over the years. However that's to be expected with Economics. This is great, for every and all ages. You can rent strollers here, as well. It gets really really warm, in the Summertime. Last time I was here, was in the Summer. I couldn't enjoy my time. However this is a wonderful place to bring your family, friends even for a 1st date.
