Welcome back to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for another park update.
Nice new red flowers, except they'd be much nicer for Holiday in the Park instead of summer kickoff.
Today was the Thomas Town Opening.
A look at the sign.
And here he comes, Thomas the Tank Engine.
Of course, if Thomas Town opened up 13 years ago, I might of been a little more excited.
But hey, you have to admit, it's pretty cool.
Thomas making his way past Lake Chabot.
This replica of Thomas looks exactly like the real Thomas.
If you stare at him long enough, it really starts to get creepy.
A look inside the station.
Outside the station, some neat signs.
It looks like some video screens will be added throughout Thomas Town.
The roundhouse where all of Thomas' friends are chillin'.
James is glad that kids aren't climbing into him.
Six Flags really went all out on the themeing.
In addition to Thomas the Tank Engine, Harold the Helicopter is another ride in the new kiddie land.
Over at Bertie the Bus, they have this creepy little person.
And there is Bertie the Bus.
And of course Thomas Town wouldn't be complete without Sir Topham Hat.
Ride the rails again soon!
Now over to Odin's Tiger Island which has recently been receiving worldwide attention.
And here is Odin. He wasn't swimming today, which is what normally gets the international media going.
After Odin, we took in the new show at Discovery Kingdom, the Maboomboom African Acrobats.
The crazy jump rope routine.
This would be so much cooler if it was night and they had awesome lighting.
Not a bad show at all, a little slow in pace, but still entertaining.
So, how many people can you carry on your back in this formation?
And that does it for the Thomas Town Opening Day, thanks for checking out this update.
