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.
