We came on a girls' trip for the U2 concert in San Jose. We decided to add the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Park onto our itinerary. When we arrived before the park opened we saw that there was MILES of students from schools lined up to get in. We also had to pay for parking and then walk a mile... More

We are 2017 annual pass holders of six flags discovery kingdom, 6 for our family. Recently, Six Flags merged with Concord Water world. Before the merge, I prebought 2 annual passes to Waterworld before it opened. Before we can use the tickets, they announced the upgrade of our annual Six Flags pass to include waterworld. I upgraded all 6. I've... More

Half the rides were closed resulting in 2+ hour waits for all roller coasters. Tons of teenagers cutting lines with no staff control. Flash pass riders bypass everyone else in line meaning if you don't form out 100s of extra dollars to get flash passes you don't get to do rides. Horribly run park compared to other six flags or...

Too many attractions were closed. The ones that were opened would close from time to time during the day. It seems like the park ir being managed by teens who are more into playing with the mic to entertain people waiting in line than paying actual attention to the line. A lot of kids cutting the line in every attraction,... More

We have season passes so decided to go hang out ... it was during spring break so some of the restaurants weren't open we were guessing because of lack of staff .... it was disappointing but it won't keep us from going!!! The new Joker ride is amazing

We attended the park on April 14th & overall had a good time. The rides were fun. There were several rides that were broke down when we attempted to ride them. We had purchased an advanced on-line meal plan at Johnny Rockets. The line to put in the order was atrocious, we had to wait 2 + hours just to... More

This place is great if you can buy the annual pass and make a few visits during the year. I feel like if I just bought a 1day pass I'd feel super disappointed because there really is a lot to see/do here and 1 day isn’t enough. By the time you wait in line for a few rides and food,... More

A friend and I went on a Saturday afternoon and we couldn't have had a better time! It was so much fun and we were able to easily ride everything in one day. It's a great way to spend a sunny day in Vallejo! The Joker and Medusa are the best rides!
