Bay Area Bash! Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!

Recommended Posts

Robb & Elissa- Thank you for a really terrific day!


The management at SFDK (coasters & animals) was one of the highlights, and getting to meet them and talk to them is something that we wouldn't have been able to do without you guys. I was able to see another side to my home park and can appreciate it more.


Meeting all the animals -Awesome (the river otter is my favorite!)

The 15 minute head start on Medusa -Awesome

Lunch with furry animals (and Tyler) -Awesome

Night time ERT -Awesome

Tony Hawk Challenge -Awesome watching all you fools getting wet, soaked, or doused on a chilly night!


Carl & I thank you for the relaxing and fun day and look forward to more in the future.

^ Awesome pictures and I cant wait to see the rest. Also I am pretty sure it was your wife that gave me medicine for my headache and I am forever grateful for that.


The bay area bash was AMAZING. Thank you so much Robb, Edgar and the rest of Discovery Kingdom for a great day. Tony hawk ERT was just ridiculous and it was a great way to sum up an awesome day. Also there was a very amazing (kid) balloon ride in the back of the park that was the greatest ride ever. We did meet Captain Lee and not only did we get the chance to ask him questions but he also crashed our lunch. It was great finally being able to meet other TPR members and I met a lot of great people and can't wait to do it again.


P.S I got 4 rides on Medusa during ERT and wasn't even trying to get the most possible so don't ever ever whine about the special things Robb and the parks try to do for us. Less Whining=More cool things.

Also a big thank you to TPR, SFDK for an epic event! This would be my second event and so far the most intimate. The 15 min of Medusa ERT was exceptional. Got in 4 rides! It was great! Will defiantly do this again next year if it happens!. Night ERT was crazy! Had an utmost awesome time! WOW! And yes rob, my wifes camel painting she won at the raffle was painted by the toe... HAHAHA!!! Good Times!

Sweet, camel toe paintings...


I've attached a few photos of our day at Bay Area Bash, although most of mine are also of animals and my family, so probably not as interesting as others. Enjoy!


Ugly creature... and Taz too.


Sexiness personified... well, HER anyways.


Don't worry, I won't eat you little girls... I'll save you for the TIGERS!

We ( SFDK Ops Team ) would like to thank everyone for making it out to the event! I hope everyone had an awesome experience. I wish some of you could have seen Robb's Face when I mentioned doing something special at Tony Hawk for ERT haha. Looking forward to seeing some PTR's . Hope to see you all again soon at the park.

Just want to say that I had a great time at SFDK. Your park. My park too. I would like to say that I had the best time at a park here in my home area. I cant imagine that SF can hire the best to run this park. Thank you to TPR and everyone else that made this happen. Go Rob, Go Elissa! Go Kitums!

Ive gotta say this was a really great event. A big thanks to Robb and Elissa for running it and SFDK for just being really awsome. I've gotta say one my favorite TPR events yet (than again might be cause its only an hour away).


Also was awsome being able to meet up with people from the trip


edit: also the penguin was awsome

What an amazing time!! I have made 7 trips this summer to DK, but this one was the best! Amazing "child stalking" tigers, "minimal" ERT on Medusa, show stealing otters, Park mascots shoving mayo packets down their gullets, frankfurters for Mike, learning that camels paint with their toes, and (the best part) turning Tony Hawk into a water ride! Riding Tony Hawk will never be the same without a cup in my hand. Thank you so much to TPR and the Discovery Kingdom management for an amazing time!


Dolphins rock!


Rob is pretending that there is water in that cup, but its really all over the guys across from him.


Cups of water + random direction changes = wetness and fun!

The two in the photo are my wifes brother chuck and his wife Jan. They are not big amusement park people but we were spending the weekend in Napa with them and when the event was announced they wanted to give it a try. We also went with my mom and dad. Dad won't ride because of health reasons but loves to go and meet people. My mom loved it and we could not get here off of V2 during ERT.


I have to say a big thanks to everyone who was involved in getting this set up. The Tony Hawk challenge was way to much fun and riding it in the future will never be the same. One thing that stood out for us was every employ we ran across was so friendly, saying hi and asking how our day was. This happened wether we were with the group or just out on our own.

Your crew does an excellent job - I don't think I ran across an employee all day long who didn't seem to be enjoying themselves or at least faking it well (operations and otherwise). Thanks for the great day.

Wow what a Day!! Still in awe of Josh getting 6 rides on Medusa during morning ERT. I got 3 and taking my time. Dolphin show, Elephant show morning tigers, Winning a lion hat. TPR trivia and Water carrying on Tony Hawks. Great meeting some new people and seeing some trip peeps from trips past.

Finishing the night with a solo ride on Roar. Roar's ride operator saying "what so great about THBS I'll throw a cup of water on you if you want" I'm still laughing about that. It's really good to see the park and staff improving. Having fun with their jobs. Keep up the good work SFDK.

A big thank you to Robb and Elissa for setting this up and making it all happen. You are awesome!!

I will totaly be be back for the Halloween event as well as the Christmas time event. I had a blast. Everyone I met who worked there, be it food service, animal ambasadors, ride ops, and shop keepers, were polite, engaging and fun. The park was very clean throughout the day and ride waits were well within reason (even without a Flash Pass). I cant wait to go back and get more pics of Leo coughing up a hairball.
