Hotels in Vallejo near Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Introduction

Set over 135 acres, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom combines rollercoasters and other rides with an animal theme park. Set between San Francisco and Sacramento, the park is close to some of California's most tranquil wildlife refuges. The vineyards of Napa Valley are just a half-hour drive away. The park's original home was further south in Redwood, when it opened in 1968. In those days, it was only a small zoo which soon merged with an animal park. In its current setting in the city of Vallejo, you can now swim with dolphins, as well as ride the rollercoasters.
