"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
August 17th, 2014
Spur the moment Friday night, my grandparents decided to surprise all of their grandkids with a trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California the next day, Saturday. As it turns out, we visited Six Flags on NATIONAL ROLLER COASTER DAY!!!
Now, we didn’t know what that actually meant. Soon, however, when we decided to ride Boomerang, we found out we get to ride a second time (if you wanted to)! As big roller coaster fans, we were certainly up to it!
Discovery Kingdom has a lot of thrill rides, such as Medusa (the green one in the picture above), Kong (also shown in the photo behind Medusa), Boomerang, Roar, Vertical Velocity, and their newest edition Superman.
For those that don’t care for roller coasters, Discovery Kingdom has a zoo area where they have animals like giraffes and elephants. They also offer elephant rides! Only $15 for adults and $10 for kids! My cousins and aunt rode the elephant and said it was an experience like no other. Now my little cousins can say that they rode an elephant like Aladdin.
No, I’m just kidding. They didn’t pay 10 dollars to ride this elephant. This was the real thing.
Big difference, right? Yesterday was a really fun day! Not having to wait in line twice to get on a roller coaster again was the best! I can’t wait to go back again, and maybe this time I will ride the elephant!
