What Makes You a Wonder Woman? #sixflags

*I was provided tickets to the park for my family to visit


On Saturday, August 12, you can meet Wonder Woman as part of the DC Super Hero Summer at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, CA.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wonder Woman will be available on the Kingdom Stage to meet guests and fans alike. As a special treat, you can meet legendary comic book artist and writer Trina Robbins, take a photo and get an autograph.

Ms. Robbins is known as the first female comic book artist ever to illustrate Wonder Woman for DC Comics and is world renowned for her art, activism and writing. Ranked as one of the top 25 best female comics creators of all time, Ms. Robbins is also a published author and historian and is listed as one of 12 women cartoonists deserving a lifetime achievement recognition by Comics Alliance.

Guests can also ride the newest and most thrilling ride attraction, Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth, a mammoth pendulum swing ride that has been hailed as the best ride ever by some.


This year for my birthday I wanted to have a theme to celebrate. Having a family of superhero lovers and a Wonder Woman fan myself I decided I would make it a Wonder Woman celebration. We planned a trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom to ride the new Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth and a trip to the theaters to see the new Wonder Woman movie.


My family always has a wonderful time when we visit Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. We have a few places we must visit on each trip, the Shark Experience and Butterfly Habitat are two of them. I feel like we have a new experience each time we visit them. This time when we went it was also Shark Week. We learned new facts about sharks, held a "Mermaids Purse" aka a nurse shark egg and also saw comic books that had shark characters in them.


As we walked around Six Flags I noticed that almost everyone there was wearing cool Superhero capes! Being the fun Mom I am I had to find out where the capes were being sold at. When we went to a store and I realized they were buy one get one free, the frugal side of me was elated! Of course my son and I both got a cape to wear around the park.


Most times we visit my son insists that my husband rides the family rides with him, it being my birthday my son wanted me to ride with him. Oh the fun I had watching him laugh and smile as we zoomed and whirled around on the rides. Even when he wanted to go on the same ride over and over I loved every moment of it!



I will admit I did not get on the Wonder Woman ride! I thought for sure I could do it but alas my fear of rides that are not on a track over came me. My son said I was still a "wonder woman" because of how hard I work and how sweet I am! That did make me feel a bit better. How we define ourselves as a "wonder woman" is entirely up to us. I work hard, love my family, take each opportunity I can to spread love and truth, just as the real Wonder Woman does.
