Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is continuing to surprise guests, with another new announcement today straight out of left field! The new "Pacific Rim 5-D Experience" simulator ride has been announced to upgrade the currently dormant I-Werks simulator theater. Previously untouched for years after the park closed it in 2008, the theater will be upgraded with the latest equipment and technology to bring the new simulator attraction to life! Based off of Warner Brother's "Pacific Rim" film, 3-D graphics and physical effects in house will soon rock park guests into this sea monster adventure!

It's that time of year again! Fright Fest 2015 is now underway at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, and Theme Park Overload has full coverage from the event as always! This year brought the addition of a brand new clown-themed maze "Carnevil" and the departure of the short lived "Massacre Mine" maze that lived on the White Water Safari ride platform.
You know it's going to be a busy night when they direct you to park at the fairgrounds across the street! (Which is, ironically, a shorter walk to the entrance than the regular parking area).
