Six Flags renames Marine World 'Discovery Kingdom'
Written by Robert Niles
More changes at Six Flags: Today, the chain announced that it is rebranding its Northern California park. Starting in March, Vallejo's Six Flags Marine World will be known as Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.Tweet
(Wow. Um, ya think that maybe they're trying to sound a little like, oh, um, Disney with that new name?)
The newly branded park will also divide into three themed lands, "Land," "Sea" and "Sky." From the press release:
"The name Six Flags Discovery Kingdom now reflects every aspect of what makes the park so unique," said Six Flags President and CEO Mark Shapiro. "Throughout its history, Marine World offered guests a truly distinctive theme park environment, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will build and improve on that great tradition. Only at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom can guests ride world-class coasters, feed giraffes, interact with dolphins and watch a killer whale glide through the water, all in one location. A trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will be an unforgettable experience that will create a lifetime of memories for our guests."
