Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Update - February 1st, 2020
Small changes in the park!
It's been nearly a month since I last came to SFDK so I thought it was just about time to come back and check out what's been going on! TL;DR not a ton but there are a few interesting changes!
Nothing shocking here but the bumper cars aren't on the list
I've teased SFDK in the past for not having accurate maps but this one in the entry plaza is up to date!
I will say that Kong always looks good (but could look better with a repaint!)
So this closed off area I've mentioned in prior updates looks like it's a shortcut into Kong's queue. Does anyone know why this was here?
Continuing this mini Kong update, I don't think I've ever seen this tagline being used, Kinda cool!
This has to be one of the more interesting collection of rides in one picture: top notch floorless coaster, small Zierer coaster, S&S 4D Freespin, weird Intamin Impulse, RMC and Skyrocket 2. Glad we have it here in NorCal!
Found this interesting looking statue in Tava's Jungleland. Looks like it's some sort of speaker or sprayer
Won't be too long before White Water Safari is open again!
The butterfly exhibit is open again after being closed for a few months
Walked up to HQCC and didn't see the sign and thought it was open. Nope the sign is just hiding a little bit.
Yep, definitely not open
And the seats were even off the vehicle
Joker was running incredibly today! I feel like I've said that the past few times. Only running one train but that train was moving!
I <3 the stall the most. Not quite as crazy as Goliath @ SFGAm but not that far off
On a sad note, the tables near Joker have been removed. Hopefully that's temporary since they were the best place to sit with your Big Belly Burger food and watch the rides - they were always full
Was a beautiful day to get shots of Superman's red track against the blue sky!
I'm 70% sure don't remember seeing the boats in shrink wrap before. Maybe the fact that they're there means that it's not terribly far from reopening?
I also don't remember this entrance to Looney Tune's Seaport by Totally Kickin Chicken. IT was either closed or I'm not very observant!
No more giant ornament on the front SFDK sign
The bumper cars are no longer a maze or a skating rink!
That's my first official sign that summer isn't too far away!
Oasis Plaza is no longer themed to toys!
Nor do toys roam the walkway back to Medusa and Kong
No poinsetta tree in front of the dolphin stadiums
And no tree in the main plaza
But HiTP isn't all gone yet! The last reminder I can find is this sign in front of the bumper cars
And for your monthly SS update: nothing has happened!
This piece still sits here
I'm gonna be honest with you, I don't know where exactly in this area the coaster will go. But I assume this will be the entrance
Maybe it'll go here?
It was a great day to see the animals today at SFDK! Since it was only around 65* and sunny it was warm enough without being too hot. That meant that plenty of animals were out for the day! Here are a few of my favorite shots I took of them.
Temple of the Tiger was starting when I was walking by so I couldn't pass up watching the show!
Too cold today to have them swim but they still jump!
The climbing is my favorite part of the show!
I think this is the closest I've ever seen the giraffes
Seems like they enjoy the weather as much as I do
The shark swimming with his fin just poking out of the water had me humming the Jaws theme
Even though not a ton has changed at the park, I still had a great time with light crowds and lots of animals out. If you have the chance, make your way out to SFDK over the next few weekends to enjoy what's sure to be a good time at the park! And stay tuned for more coverage of SFDK!
