  1. Good addition to the park. Finally adds a family coaster back, and adds a ride in a new section of the park which will help with crowd management. I just hope this isn't a sign that the animal attractions will slowly be fading away. I understand why the elephants had to leave of course, but still hoping most of this area of the park stays dedicated to animals. This ride seems to offer both at leastm. Definitely happy with this

  2. Surprised to see them remove the go carts, although I've always said that's a perfect place for the next coaster. Does anyone know if they're going to be moving the go carts to elsewhere in the park?


    Also just want to second (third?) the idea that this park has had great additions lately. Really, since Superman was added the park has improved greatly. It's low key a really, really good park

  3. I'd like to see the park add both the FreeSpin and dark ride. It needs a dark ride badly. And they really need to upgrade the screen on the 5D theater. The seats are fine, but the screen and projector are such poor quality. And Monkey Madness, while fun, looks like it was made in 1998.


    How long have the elephants officially been gone for? I was at the park today and noticed they weren't there. It got me thinking, they could build a nice family woodie over there, maybe even cross over the walkway and extend into where VooDoo is (since that is down more often than not anyway.

  4. Hello, everyone! I'm new to the site, and this is my first post. I'm posting here in specific because Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is my home park.


    I was formerly a ride operator for Medusa a couple years back, before Roar became Joker. I decided to join the site because currently, I've only ridden coasters at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and California's Great America. I was wondering if I could get some good help on how to increase my coaster count and hobby as a coaster enthusiast?


    Here is some information you should know about me...


    Coaster Count - 16 (I know, it's pathetic)


    Top 5 Coasters

    1. Joker

    2. Gold Striker

    3. Medusa

    4. Flight Deck

    5. Superman - Ultimate Flight


    Best way to increase your coaster count? Take a trip to SoCal. Magic Mountain alone would double your count. Then you have Knott's and Disney and Universal.

  5. Back to the topic of Superman....


    For each of the last 5 years, my now 13 year old son and I have taken a 2 or 3 day trip to SFMM. We're from the Bay Area and have passes to SFDK, so it's made for a relatively cheap, fun vacation.


    On our first trip here, my son wanted to ride Superman more than anything, but the line was crazy the whole first day. He wanted to ride so much, we made the decision to run to it at park open on our second day. We got there and no one else was there yet. We got the first ride of the day and it was just the 2 of us on the ride. As we come back into the station, no one else is in line yet. My son asks if we can go again, and they let us. We end up riding 6 times in a row, in every seat we could. We then walked down into the DC area and rode Riddler, Batman, Green Lantern all multiple times with no wait, often the only 2 on the ride. In just over an hour, we'd had 13 rides It was by far the highlight of our trip.


    It was such a highlight in fact, that we made it a tradition. One day each year on every one of our trips, we run to Superman and get 7-12 rides in, and then hit a near empty DC and basically do the same.


    Long story short, that's the only way I ride Superman, and I freaking love it. It's honestly something both he and I look forward to every visit. It's such a thrill to experience that launch so many times in a short span of time. It really is a freaking amazing launch.

  6. Hello everyone. Going to be headed to the parks next week for spring break, spending Wed, Thurs, and Friday there. I have a question on ride closures though. Specifically Grizzly River Run. I've seen a couple different dates for it to reopen. One said the 22 and one said the 24. Is there anyone on here with any "connections" or whatever that can give me something more accurate? Thanks! My family loves that ride

  7. Hey everyone


    Just booked a trip for my son and I to visit the park for 2 days the second week of June. We'll be here on a Thursday and Friday.


    One of those days we want to spend primarily at the water park. Do you think Friday or Thursday would be better for that?


    Also, how should we attack the park to maximize what we can get on? We plan on being at the park at opening both days.


    Thanks for the help!

  8. Hey everyone. Just booked a trip for my son and I to visit for 2 days that second week of June. We'll be here probably on a Tuesday and Wednesday. I was hoping to get a few tips from you guys.


    1) what will the weather be like? I'm expecting warm but will it be in the 80s or the 100s?


    2) How should we attack the park? My son is 13, we both will go on literally everything in the park. We're planning on being there right at opening too, so where should we try to run to? And where to from there?


    3) What are the best places to eat outside of the park but nearby? Breakfast and dinner please.


    Thanks so much for the help.

  9. I've always wanted a Double Shot. I think those are 120 ft, but I'm sure someone could make one that's 150 just to maximize things. They could probably find a way to fit that somewhere in Medusa's parking lot or in that general area by Medusa/Kong somewhere.


    Bottom line, I just want this park to keep growing and adding valuable rides. They've really done a great job at this over the last 5 years or so. Superman, Sky Skreamer, Tsunami Soaker/Penguin, Joker, and now Wonder Woman. All fabulous additions. I just want it to continue
