(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."
As for the park itself: I've already made my opinion of the place clear in my trip reports. Nothing has changed, so I won't bother repeating anything from them here.
I would like to add, though, that Mark Shapiro should be in politics. The man's spouting enough hot air, with that silly speech of his, to fill the Goodyear blimp.
Keep the peace(es).

Six Flags is also implementing the Wiggles into the kiddie sections in some of their parks. I suppose you could call it a test market of some sort. That's not a bad addition at all for the little ones. It probably wont be a super multimillion dollar themed area, but at least give them credit for implementing characters and trying a franchise that is currently more relavent and recognizable in todays child culture than most of the Disney characters.
