Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, formerly Six Flags Marine World, Marine World, The New Marine World Theme Park, and Marine World Africa USA, is an animal theme park located in Vallejo, California, USA. Marine World originally opened in 1968 in Redwood, CA, but after the 1985 season, the Redwood location closed and the park was moved to its current location in 1986.
