Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Jim, Brent and I head over to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (aka MarineWorld) to ride the new Tony Hawk coaster. We shared the park with thousands of middle school kids on their year end school trip! It was a warm day in the park (upper 80s). In addition to Tony Hawk we rode most of the coasters: V2, Roar, Kong, Cobra, and Medusa. We also caught the last Shouka Killer Whale show.
