The park feels like one huge safari. The only thing missing is the titles to the themed areas. Boomerang Coast-To-Coaster is one of the hidden gems of the park located in the “Land” section of the Park. The other two areas of the park are know as “Sea” and “Sky”.
In true animal fashion, the tiger pull car was a nice touch to the attraction. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom should theme more attractions to the animal attractions, as they frequently did prior to Superman, it would be a strength for the park.
Tigers are among the fiercest animals on the planet and would tie in well with any attraction. Over at Odin’s Temple of the Tiger this was the only beauty I found taking a nice nap. I was truly looking forward to seeing Odin, the white tiger.
There are however many marine shows in the park that guest can attend to see animals at play. Because of time we were not able to make it this time around, but Drench! has always been entertaining to watch with live dolphins!
Although we did not have time to visit all of the animal encounters on this visit, the encounters we did end up visiting were not extremely engaging or clean. These manta rays all seemed to hide from guests touching them and their water was very murky. I sure hope the park puts more money into maintaining all of their animal exhibit above par, there is so much potential here.
The park is busy maintaining its physical attractions. Monsoon Falls was also down during this visit for its scheduled refurb. This attraction was manufactured by Intamin and has been at the park for 20 years now.
It is truly innovative how the steel tracks can be used over the wooden structures to create an experience like no other. The color scheme for The Joker has always been eye pleasing to look at because you can see where the past meets the present.
The coaster track is not the only thing chaotic and whimsical. True to its name The Joker trains are truly spectacular. During this there was only one train running to keep the rides down time for the day low as they were experiencing sensor issues.
You can never have enough images of the coaster track. At a height of only 100 feet this 78 degree drop provides a lot of airtime and immediately throws you into the action of the The Jokers villainous plot.
With so many life size toys in the area, I would have loved to experienced this section at night when the lights make it come to life. Reminiscent to a classic dreidel , this spinning toy stuck out the most to me because it happened to be my initials.
At the loading area, there was a sports bottle holder for guest. This is great tool and should be incorporated into more of the Six Flags parks to alleviate spills in the holding bins. Nice job, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!
Taking to the skies the mighty Sky Screamer lives again! This was an amazing trip to the park. We got a new credit on V2: Vertical Velocity, took a look at the new Batman: The Ride construction update, and found some areas of improvement for the park.
