Welcome to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Where should we head first?
To the SEA it is!
First up - Penguins
First coaster of the day would be ROAR
Roar is a GCI built wooden coaster
It features a lot of curves and twists
Overall it provided a pretty intense ride
Next was Big Spin
This is one of those Gerstlauer spinning coasters
Lots of hair pin turns and helices to make the car spin around
Also in the area was V2: Vertical Velocity
This is an unusual installation because of the front spike.
Instead of being vertical, it actually is at an angle
So you actually go upside down here
Possibly the coolest theme for a ride like this ever.
This is Hammerhead Shark
Speaking of Sharks, they have an exhibit
Underwater viewing and everything - though it was really dark in there
There is a small Loony Tunes themed area which has this coaster
called Road Runner Express
They also have a sea animal show featuring SHOUKA
Shouka is the star of the park
He jumps, he splashes, he does things
He has dolphin friends. It's all cool
Now we are in the SKY section of the park.
This is MEDUSA - a B&M built floorless coaster.
This is really the star coaster at the park
It towers over mostly everything
Very twisted layout
KONG is next door
Kong is a Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster
It's not as rough as most SLC coasters out there
However it is far from a smooth ride
Also in this area is Cobra
It gets the award for longest train ever
Boomerang is also near by
It's just another Boomerang
Moving into the LAND section of the park - home to lots of animals
There are a final few attractions in the area - this is Ark
White Water Safari
A very different Six Flags park - but a lot of fun
