Known as Marine World for the marine wildlife years ago, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is now known more for its rides.
Take a topsy, turvy spin on the thriller coaster, Superman, or one of the many other thrill, family or kids rides.
See cougars and dolphins, walruses and penguins, among other animals. Take in a wildlife show, eat some food and take in an exhibit. The park also transforms during some holidays, adding special attractions for Halloween and Christmas. Season passes are available.
Location: 1001 Fairgrounds Drive, Vallejo (From Fairfield: Take Interstate 80 westbound. From Interstate 80, take the Discovery Kingdom exit).
