Visited here on a Friday. It wasn't as crowded as I expected. We didn't see any of the animal shows (I think just a dolphin show). Some of the rides had really long lines while others had none. Our group rode Superman over and over....More

The last time we visited this park was 2002 so there were a few new rides to experience when we visited on our driving tour in 2016. We visited on a Saturday in late August and the park was very busy, which limited the amount...More

This place is heavy on coasters. I noticed a small kids area, but we didn't hit that. The weather was hot and it was a week day, so the lines were short for most rides. I'd recommend the Flash Pass to get on rides quicker...More

We won't return. This is no Disneyland! We had been to Six Flags several times while we lived in CA. As the years went on we saw the park atmosphere dwindle. (Where did the ski show go?) There is so much profanity from guests AND...More

Let me tell you now, thrill seekers to young ones to senior will enjoy Discovery Kingdom. Plenty of under 42 inch rides Superman and Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth are major hits. I found the meal deal to work out great.

We visited Discovery Kingdom mostly because we love the butterfly habitat. The park is well maintained and the rides seem modern and relevant. The parking is overpriced at $25- higher than Disneyland. There are plenty of food choices and activities. Overall nice family attraction.

I took my family here on 05/31/17 to celebrate my son's 13th birthday. I spent about $250 for 5 tickets plus parking. Everyone enjoyed the day. There were just a few rides down. Lines were not extremely long; maybe because it was a weekday and...More

How much does the food cost you, on average? I'm going Sunday and I'm curious as to how much you think I should bring for cash only.

Look on their website under "Animal Encounters." The price is different depending on whether you are purchasing admission to the park at the same time. It is also different at different times of the year. My granddaughter... More
