Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Holiday Review

Did you get a chance to check out the Holiday Event at Six Flags? We had a few of our friends check out the one in Vallejo CA at Discovery Kingdom. 

The park was filled with holiday decorations. Trees, presents, photo opp places and holiday cheer everywhere! There was hot cocoa to enjoy along with the regular treats like funnel cakes. 

One of the great parts is the lines for all the rides were super fast! The summer time the lines can be really long so it was great to be able to ride many rides in one day. Some rides were shut down along with a few animal attractions but there was many Holiday themed animal shows like the Dolphin show.

They also had a snow-globe you could have your picture taken with you inside the thing and the toboggan sledding run, the lines were a little long but it was worth the wait for the fun. We enjoyed treats while we stood in line.

The animals are always a big draw to Discovery Kingdom and even the smallest of animals like this baby spider monkey were fun to watch. The baby monkey was interacting with the Santa hat our friends little girl was wearing for over 5 minutes through the reflections in the glass. Its those little moments at the park with the animals that make it a joy to return to Discovery Kingdom.

 After wandering the park for hours taking in all the magic of the Holiday Season they rode a few more rides, had dinner and waited for the tree to be lit for the night. Over all they had a great time. Our friends definitely recommend the Holiday Park event at Six Flags. If you did not have a chance to check it out this year there is always next year where I am sure it will be filled with snow and magic!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is closed for now and will reopen in March 16th 2013. They have many great new attractions coming to the park including:

Cirque Dreams SPLASHTASTIC: The Most Amazing Show Above H20
