Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (3/13/20) Six Flags has announced that they will suspend operations of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom through to the end of March.
(12/1/19) Congratulations to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for becoming the first theme park on the West Coast to be powered by solar energy. A new 7.5 Megawatt solar panel carport system was finished just in time for the launch of the Holiday in the Park event that is expected to provide up to 80% of the park’s energy needs.
(7/4/19) Next time you visit Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, be sure to go and meet Cain, a new 8-week old male lion cub that has just arrived at the park who is cute as can be. Cain is currently making his home in the park’s Animal Nursery.
2020 - Sidewinder Safari - (2/29/20) Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has posted a time-lapse time-lapse construction video of the site clearing taking place for Sidewinder Safari. Based on the video the structure in the background that has the roof taken off as the video progresses is the former load/unload structure for the park’s former Elephant Rides attraction that was closed way back in 2016, so it looks like the new coaster will be located here.
(8/29/19) Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will mix a new animal encounter with a family roller coaster adventure in 2020 when they add Sidewinder Safari, a new spinning mouse style coaster ride. But before you ride, you’ll encounter live snakes and other reptiles as you pass through the queue. Sidewinder Safari will be the park’s 12th roller coaster.
