Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is a Blast!!! Oct 14, 2012
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has come a long way from it's Marine World days. The Upgrade to the Six Flags Brand has brought in more roller coasters and non-water type entertainment, making this Family Theme Park the ultimate entertainment experience.
Tickets are expensive though: Adults $57 Children: $37. So if you're looking for cheap family fun, this ain't it. But, if you know your family is going to go to the Park more than twice in a season, it's probably in your best interest to get season passes. And for a family of four @ Discovery Kingdom that includes free parking ($10 savings each visit).
You really can spend the day here. There is plenty to do and see, not enough time to do it all. Be prepared for crowds and long lines on peak days (Fri, Sat, Sun), especially for the popular attractions.
Food is expensive inside the Park. I always stick to snacks like popcorn, peanuts & pretzels. They are typically cheap and can be easily eaten on the move. May I suggest buying a commemorative popcorn bucket. You can pay $1 for refills ALL season long. They have commemorative cups for soda that operate this way as well. As long as you don't mind hauling around these small items around the park, you can really save when the kids start to get hungry or thirsty once inside. We take ours home and bring them back with us every time we go.
The Dolphin show is excellent! Well, ALL the shows are very good...just the Dolphins are my favorite. They have 3-4 show times throughout the day so you can plan your day accordingly. And they have special event days, like Fright Fest in October for Halloween & Holiday in the Park during Christmas through New Years. These are great options when planning your family entertainment. Always something going on here. Two Thumbs UP!!!
