Last weekend my family and I went to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo CA for Halloween Fright Fest. It was such a FUN day! I thought since it was fright fest that it would be too much for my son but they day was filled with family friendly events.
|For kids there is a Twick or Tweat area for candy, meeting Looney Toons characters, picture opportunities and fun pumpkin patch with a maze. My son loved it all.|
The classic dolphins in the fountain were replaced with spooky creatures and the fountain water was dyed red for a creepy and fun look. There were all sorts of spooky and some creepy Halloween displays all over. We even saw a few witches!
I will say when the day turned into night it was a wild and spooky place! Funny enough my son fell asleep in his stroller at 7:30 as we were pushing him back to the Looney Toons area to ride the carousal. I am glad he did though! The place began to fill with spooky fog, zombies and monsters were lurking about and the Fright Fest was fully underway!! I did see tons of kids there, many getting scared as Halloween is intended and they all had smiles on their faces. We did a little bit of shopping before the 8:30 pm Halloween themed Dolphin show. All day my son had asked to see the dolphins and now he was sleeping like a rock!
But as soon as the music started for the Dolphin show my son woke up and said Dolphins! I am so glad he woke up to see the fun show. We loved it!! The show was so action packed my camera did not get any good shots but I got a fun clip to share.
|We saw a fun Sea Lion show, penguins up close ( Happy Feet as my son says) and the super cool Tigers. My son so made me laugh when the Tiger splashed the audience he said "No Cat Cat You Stop That" so funny!|
|We rode a ton of rides! My son loved it. We went into the Butterfly house that was closed last time we went and it was amazing. My son was trying to grab them and then karate chop them so our trip in there was a quick one but still so wonderful.|
