Monsters invade Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

October 18, 2012 by  

First up for Vallejo folk, families can get their scare-fix on at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom through October 26 – 28 with its kid-friendly entertainment.

Activities include Twick or Tweet Twail, a new monster mash stage show, screaming contests, a new pumpkin patch, and puppet shows. Families can take the little ones home as dusk falls and bring back the older kids for encounters with scary ghosts, monsters and, of course, zombies. Five new haunted houses are sure to scare even the bravest of souls. Tickets and operating hours are available on the website.

Another frightfully fun event sees Mare Island Preserve turn into Scare Island and offer a self-guided walk along a haunted trail that passes through bunkers and a cemetery before ending at the visitors’ center, where guests will be entertained with refreshments and ghost stories. The cost is a $5 donation per person. Children aged 14 or younger are free but must be accompanied by an adult.

The event will run from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm from Saturday, October 27 to Wednesday, October 31. The ‘Scary Sunday’ in between will feature live music, pumpkin and gourd art for children, a treasure hunt, and a puppet show from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Haunted trails and tales will take place from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Mare Island Preserve is located on Mare Island in Vallejo at the end of Railroad Avenue. Access is by walking. Since it is not yet a public park, there only minor amenities, so poster printing could be a great way to direct visitors to special events for temporary events like this.
