Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (SFDK) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I've been waiting to sneak over for another round of laps on Joker too, so I'm also anxiously awaiting a report before I drive down since I'm about 60 mins away. Kind of a bummer to drive an hour not knowing.

 

I wish Six Flags had a live ride operating report on their website, an online version of the signs in the box office windows. I don't think that would be too hard nowadays if someone put forth the effort.

 

You're telling me. I am planning on driving up on Saturday from San Diego...

Closed all day. Saw it cycle one when the park first opened. Decided not to ask about ride since the person at the entrance has been hounded a 1000 times.

Maybe someone who is at the park could ask one of the ride operators at The Joker or someone in guest services when it is expected to reopen.

 

They never, ever say when they expect it to reopen. I think it's just their policy now that way people cant be like " but ___ said it should be open by now." and then they seemingly can't talk about whatever the issue is. I can only really recall one time where a ride op told me and aa few others something about "someone threw up" or something to that extent to explain why a ride was temp closed. But if there's a mechanical issue, I never been able to get anything from them. like if it's truly a issue with the restraint system i can understand them not wanting GP to know that because lap bars only on a ride like The Joker is intense for some people as it is.

It would be if there wasn't a Sonic's five minutes away from the park.

 

 

sonic is overpriced for the quality of food it servers IMHO.

Nice, I didn't know there was a Sonic nearby. We don't have those where I'm at. I'll have to stop there instead of Carl's next time I'm at the park, thanks!

Joker still closed...

And ironically they just reposted a "Joker now open!" post on Facebook. I had the impulse to post "* not actually open" but resisted the urge to be an ass just because I'm bitter about waiting a little longer to ride it again

^ Hammerhead's still not open either? That was another one that was down when I was there back in March. Very surprising.

 

Voodoo was open at the time, though you wouldn't have known it, as there was no line; I ended up riding it by myself twice in a row. That was a very strange experience.

At the park now, Joker still closed! The attendant at the entrance says it "might open later today". Not holding my breath though. 6 hour drive from L.A. though grrrr. These things happen though

 

Did you check the thread or website? It's been down for quite a few days.

Please let us know if they manage to get it operating today. Any idea what the problem might be?

They sent a test train about 30 mins ago, been crickets since. Boomerang has also been stuck on the lift for quite a while

Joker's open, though only the purple is cycling with people. The green is cycling empty at the moment.

 

Thoughts on the ride: Definitely more pace than both Twisted Colossus and Wicked Cyclone. Though I think I prefer the layouts of the other two. Joker also vibrated like crazy, more so than WC from what I remember. We rode the front the first time, going to try for the back this time.

Closed again, I wouldn't recommend coming today. It seems like the problem is the sensors on the air gates. They kept telling us not to touch them or the ride would shut down because they're sensitive.

 

If this is one of the problems or the problem with the ride, this is going to make boarding far worse. They'll limit the people up in the station more and keep everyone in the tunnel or unshade part of the line by the fencing. This will lead to somewhat unfilled trains as they did on the first day it opened for GP/season pass holder exclusive. I always seen people lean or push on the gates at really every ride except maybe Superman.

What's the latest on The Joker situation? Thanks.

It opened a couple times and closed again. Problems with the restraints getting stuck closed/opened. I was lucky to ride it once today. Anyone planning to go this weekend should reconsider if at all possible.

Yeah that was a recurring problem during SP preview weekend too.
