We do apologize for the delay, we have been rather busy as of late, but you know what they say, better late than never. With that out of the way, please enjoy our large Veterans Day update from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
With some rather slow two train operations, Joker had a full queue with all the switchbacks in use. It seems as though most technical issues have been sorted out however, which is a good sign. Not all 2016 RMCs can say the same after all.
V2 is up and running of course, and it sported one of the shorter lines in the park as it often does. We still like this coaster, although at this point we think a re-theme to The Flash (suggested by a reader) would do wonders thematically.
White Water Safari is also down, along with Voodoo of course. We can’t remember the last time Voodoo and open were put in the same sentence without a “Not”. Don’t be surprised if it gets the Riptide treatment in coming months.
Speaking of Special Events, just around the corner is none other than Holiday in the Park! Things are already looking cheerful in preparation for the event including the park’s massive entrance plaza Christmas tree.
I hate to end on a sour note, but we do have a slight bone to pick. Food services at the park during our last few visits have been pretty horrendous. I really do not care to complain about trivial issues at parks, I love the industry and I love Discovery Kingdom. However, when I have to scour the park in search of the shortest food line, and still wait 40 minutes on an at most moderately crowded day, that’s ridiculous. This has been issue for a few months now, hell, last time I visited I waited two hours for a burrito. I don’t work at the park, I don’t know if it’s an issue with management, the employees, the supervisors, or anyone else, it’s not my place to say. This is an issue however that needs to be fixed, as guests getting food, dining pass or otherwise, should not have to deal with this nonsense. Anyways, here’s a picture of the Chop Six, it was fine.
And since we would actually hate to end on that, don’t forget that Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth is coming in 2017! These rides are absolutely phenomenal and we get wait for them to break ground so we can start covering the construction!
That’s all we have for this update, we’ll be back at the park soon for some Holiday in the Park coverage. Thanks for reading, and make sure to check out Raphael’s Cedar Point adventure here, as well as our recent Six Flags Magic Mountain Update here. Leave a comment below, and take care.
