Six Flags Discovery Kingdom features more than 60 rides and attractions, including interactive animal experiences. This one-of-a-kind, new attraction – the park’s 11th roller coaster – will combine the thrill of a spinning coaster with live reptile encounters as guests ride along 1,378 feet of slithering track through a jungle-like setting.

“As the world leader in thrills, Six Flags continues to raise the bar to deliver the most unique and innovative experiences in the industry,” said General Manager Dameon Nelson. “Sidewinder Safari is unlike any other ride in Northern California, featuring the thrill of a unique, spinning roller coaster combined with an opportunity to encounter reptiles up-close, which continues Six Flags Discovery Kingdom’s long legacy of promoting animal conservation through education. This new experience solidifies our place as the Thrill Capital of Northern California.”

Other Sidewinder Safari highlights include twisting and turning hairpin curves, rapid-strike drops, and multiple 360-degree sideway spins.
