Sunday we took a trip up to Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo. Since we had a couple of young kids (6 & 8 years old) with us, the big roller coasters were of the list. Instead, we watched a few of the shows – the sea lions, the ski extreme water stunt show and Shouka the new killer whale (see photo).
The entry was half price thanks to a coupon, but it still cost just under $100 for two adults and two children. Even worse, not everything was included in that price – things like the go-carts required additional fees. Of course, the food was expensive and nothing more than fast food options (though they had a pretty good selection of cuisines to choose from).
Other rides? Well, there were the bumper cars, both the featured water rides (on the rubber tyre ride they managed to get me lined up with the waterfall and drenched) and the kids did most of the rides in the Looney Tunes kids area. We did a few more of the smaller rides along the way, and checked out the butterfly house and the walrus area.
