Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (SFDK) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I know that SFMM opens 10 minutes early for pass holders, but I'm curious if SFDK does to? If so, what line do you go to first? Superman or Joker? I believe Superman costs an extra fee on the pass to ride...I figure hit it first to avoid the extra fee it costs to ride this once. Can anyone give any info on the flash pass regarding the Joker? Is it only available on Platinum, extra fee, etc? Thanks.

Neither, unfortunately. SFDK's early entry is just to get in line for Medusa 5-10 minutes early, though it usually doesn't start accepting riders until the whole park opens so all you get is near the front of the line for the first train. Technically the whole plaza is open, but in my experience they wont let you line up for Kong or anything else before the park opens. Medusa allows you to wait at the top of the stairs.

It's running one train as of now.

 

EDIT: Oh man, that one train operation was easily worth the wait. The Joker is running faster than ever and is clearly starting to break in. Have a great time, anyone who goes!

Strongly considering popping in tomorrow morning, hope it's running.

Scratch that. RMC today has ordered all coasters with RMC trains to be closed until further notice for a part recall. Too bad, Joker was just starting to get running again. I wonder if the parts giving Joker all this trouble for the past few weeks is the one that was recalled. (For source see the SFMM thread.)

This ride seems to to be becoming a bad luck charm. Every time it gets fixed, something else happens.

The website doesn't list Joker as closed (Along with the other Six Flags rides running RMC trains) though, so either they didn't receive the news in time to update the website, or they don't believe it's an immediate danger.

Correction, it is closed now. Saw the fully empty queue from atop Goliath. I must have gotten the last ride.

 

Well, shoot. Hopefully, RMC can get the parts replaced quickly.

Interesting, SFMM had closed Twisted Colossus down earlier and have no reopened it. I wonder if TC isnt affected for some reason or they just didn't get the memo. I heard reports that Joker has been open all night tonight too. I might just go down there in the morning after all and take my chances.

I just think Dollywood put some info out there that wasn't entirely true

They werent the only ones. I saw another park post some really specific info about being told by RMC earlier today that all coasters with their trains were supposed to stop until new parts were received and installed.

Which other park?

Does the recall only impact their wooden coasters? Wildfire and Lightning Rod classify as that.

You mean "new" coasters? Maybe. What I heard was it as a train vehicle part, so I would think that would affect almost all RMC coasters, but maybe thats not what it was. For what it's worth SFDK's site still doesnt list Joker as closed, and I'm headed there now.
