Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (SFDK) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^people have been asking if I can do this or that around Memorial Day weekend, and I've had to respond, "yes... Unless Marine World opens their new coaster then."

 

It seems like it won't be opening Memorial Weekend or I feel like they would have said something by now, but my family [sorta] understands that I'm clearing my schedule as soon as we get an opening date!

 

Marine World is the best name for the park IMHO. Discovery Kingdom is something I never felt exactly fits because sadly the education from the animal exhibit is pretty minimal. The workers who are staffed at exhibits to make sure people behave well only have fact sheets they read from. After the Joker opens hopefully they'll spend a year or two revitalizing the animal programs of the park.

My family really only knows it as Marine World. It'll always be Marine World to us! I get why they changed it though, since there are no longer orcas so the only real "marine" draw is the dolphins. I'm still not fully used to Discovery Kingdom as the name and half my enthusiast friends just say "SFDK."

 

^SFDK released that Joker has media day on May 25th and opens to the general public on May 27th.

I just got REALLY excited!! Does anyone have a link to the press release or know what what time it will be opening/if there is a season pass preview?

Does anyone know when exactly the ride opens? I saw someone post May 27 but I haven't been able to confirm it anywhere. I was hoping someone could help clear this up.

 

yeah the only place where I've seen anyone say may 27th for public opening is here.

Same, except I saw a GP (assuming it was a GP) post a comment on the SFDK FB page that mentioned she saw the opening date on a Youtube video, but I haven't been able to find the video.

I found this video, maybe it's the one she was talking about? No matter what it isn't an official source.

I guess they told people the opening date at the last construction tour and lead car unveiling. Anyways it makes sense it's open on the first day of memorial day weekend.

Memorial Day weekend is generally when Six Flags debuts their new rides, but they have been strangely silent about The Joker. If they were opening it in two weeks, then they would've had the media day already scheduled. Since we haven't heard anything about a media day, it doesn't give me much hope that it will open Memorial Day weekend.

I found this on Twitter:

It was in response to the site that posted the Youtube video. Idk why they're not making it super public but it seems more legit now. Hopefully we'll get more information soon.

 

cool a official source finally.

 

May 27th is the last Ultimate Education Day Last year I was at the park on one of these days and around 2-4PM a lot of feildtrips were heading out of the park. Roar was really packed that day but around 5-7pm the park was actually pretty empty. So that along with it being passholders only it might actually be a pretty good day to check out Joker.

 

also, I hope they add in a single rider line to fill out the trains but knowing SF:DK they likely won't.

SFMM had a single rider line and a grouper for Twisted Colossus when it first opened, but they abandoned both of them after a few months. A single rider line makes a lot of sense for the Joker, but seeing how they don't have one for Superman (a ride that really needs it), I doubt we'll see one for Joker.

I'm seriously so excited for this! It looks like there are some great moments of airtime on this!
