Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Update - July 5th, 2022
Sidewinder Safari a month later & Ride Updates
Another month another check in at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom! Nothing as new or crazy this month as there was last month but there was some new things to check out! In this update, we'll check out Sidewinder Safari a month after opening, the removed ride areas in the park and the status of some rides.
A month after opening, how is everything looking? Pretty good! First, we have some new signs up for the ride throughout the park
The ride looks just as vibrant as ever. It was suffering from some downtime when I was there but looked to be back up soon
The field behind the ride looked a little different and had this cherry picker parked in it
And something happened to this pavement near the ride. Unfortunately a lot of the snakes still weren't in their exhibits but hopefully they will be soon
This month brings us some landscaping work at the site of formerly removed rides
Like here at the Voodoo spot
Actually workers were clearing out the brush behind it. What does that mean? Almost certainly nothing for now but worth keeping our eyes on since between the Skycoaster site, Voodoo and the area behind it, there's some space, doubly or triply so if you add White Water Safari's plot
Similarly there's also some landscaping being done at the Tazmanian Devil site
Can't wait to see what happens here!
Harley Quinn looks the same. This is the last of it you'll hear about from me until something changes
Hammerhead looks pretty similar
Except the sign is removed!
White Water Safari remains closed
Not sure why it's closed in the middle of summer
These cars look like they haven't been used in a while
But in better news, Wonder Woman was open again!
As was the rock climbing wall which I haven't seen operating since at least before the pandemic
New at the park is Evenings at the Grove
It is the food and drink type festival that's popular at Great America
I believe it happens back here. I'd like to check it out at some point!
The corn stand was open for the first time in a long while
Being a cooler day, a lot of the animals were out!
The Dolphin Harbor stadium has become Toyota Stadium at least according to this sign
The main entrance however does not have the sign
But what has been known as Toyota Stadium was closed. Is that for good or just temporary? We'll have to see
Like other parks in the chain, Six Flags now sells one time use Flash Passes for rides, in this case Dare Devil Dive
I missed the main 4th of July celebration but it looks like the park is (or at least was) still selling some drinks for it
Some work being done to the dolphin encounter area that looks into DC Universe
Port of Call has some fresh new paint courtesy of Napa Smith brewery
Shark Encounter has some nice new signage
Even though it's still the same walkthrough
Outpost Cafe has some new seating out front instead of the queue and railing
I love walking up to the park and seeing Medusa as you walk in. No better way to start your day!
There was a Looney Tunes Dance Off at the main stage. I did actually see a couple of costumed characters walking around which I haven't seen in a while
Of course the park was decorated for the 4th
Lots of flags!
And merch being sold as you'd expect
And that'll wrap up the update from this month. Good to have a quieter month at the park and good to see all the rides again! I'll be back at the park at the end of August to cover the 5k happening at the park!
