Times-Herald staff report
Article Launched: 03/04/2008
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom begins its 40th year when it opens to the public on Saturday, park officials said.
This season also marks the park's second year with its Land, Sea and Sky areas. Last year's park transformation included a name change that better reflects the park's unique offerings as a wildlife, oceanarium and theme park, officials said.
Plans for the 2008 season include:
• The opening of Tony Hawk's Big Spin, a roller coaster based on professional skateboarder Tony Hawk. • A new bounty-themed sea lion show, "Pinnipeds of the Caribbean." • A new bird show, "Bird Drop Inn." • A "digital revolution" parkwide, with mounted plasma TVs airing Six Flags-related content, advertisements and highlights from some of Dick Clark Productions' shows; Six Flags Radio plays music and content throughout the park, along with ambient Land, Sea and Sky-themed music; cell phone charging stations throughout the park, and for the second year, a Nintendo Wii Station. • Johnny Rockets, a franchise restaurant offers classic American food and a special Six Flags-branded milkshake. • Odin, the white Bengal tiger, starring in Odin's Tiger Splash Show. • A revamped killer whale show and a Caribbean-themed showcase for the park's Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. • Thomas Town, a kids' area devoted to the characters from the Thomas the Tank Engine series.
