Southern California may be the home of many famous amusement parks, but Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in the San Francisco area gives other parks a run for their money! This 135-acre park features a range of thrilling adventures, from up-close interactions with exotic land animals and majestic sea life to world-class rides and attractions that will delight families and guests of all ages. With eight world-class roller coasters plus rides you’ll never forget, there’s something for everyone. Medusa, for example, takes daring riders down a 150-foot plunge, while Vertical Velocity is the fastest coaster around and adults and kids alike will feel the extremes on the family coasters Cobra and Tony Hawk’s Big Spin.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom offers fun and interactive activities including sensational wildlife shows, interactive and educational animal encounters, including an incredible swim with dolphins program (extra fee required), educational animal encounters, the most thrilling family and kids rides in Northern California, delicious dining options, unique shops, and the opportunity to meet the 'Justice League' super heroes and the lovable Looney Tunes characters. You can even “Meet the Cats” at the new “Odin’s Temple of the Tiger” exhibit, displaying the world’s most powerful and magnificent animals in a unique show.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is Northern California's premier family entertainment destination! The park’s plethora of animals to meet and observe include Shouka, the 16-year-old killer whale who is the star of the “Sea” exhibit, Odin the Bengal Tiger at the Temple of the Tiger, Leo the Lion at the Lion’s Den, the dolphins at Merlin’s Island Party, Quillson the Porcupine at the Kingdom Stage, and many others!

After you’ve exhausted the park’s rides and wildlife, get your fill of theme-park food and enjoy some fresh Ben & Jerry’s ice cream or some authentic BBQ from JB’s Smokehouse. A whole variety of eateries are available at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, so don’t be shy about trying new things!

Comments about Smart Destinations Six Flags Discovery Kingdom:

I've been to several Six Flags theme parks – Great Adventure in NJ, Hurricane Harbor in MA, Over Texas in San Antonio – and this one did not disappoint. In fact, Discovery Kingdom is better! It's an amusement park / marine park / zoo all rolled into one. The roller coasters like Medusa and Kong are great, but the lines are long so plan for that. The animals were my favorite part. For an additional fee you can even swim with the dolphins.
