At last, Gilroy Gardens is going to throw the party it had planned in 2020. The lush horticultural theme park will kick off its 20th birthday celebration on June 26,...
One of Northern California’s most avid roller-coaster lovers and member of ACE, Nicholas Laschkewitsch, was recently treated to a once-in-a-lifetime adventure at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (SFDK) in Vallejo, CA. Nicholas was the winner of a contest sponsored by SFDK in which he referred more fans to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom’s Facebook fan page than anyone else. His VIP day included special access and gifts for him and three of his friends, including free admission to the park, free T-shirts, participating in the opening ceremony to open the park with Captain Lee and Mr. Six, ERT on Medusa, being a special guest trainer at the Dolphin Sea Experience, having an incredible gourmet lunch with Captain Lee and the Park President, Eric Gilbert, VIP seating at the “Celebrate Shouka” (whale) Show, VIP seating at Odin’s Temple of the Tiger Show, Seafari passes to feed many of the park’s animals, and a commemorative Medusa poster, suitable for framing (which Nicholas has already done!). Perhaps best of all, Nicholas and his three friends had a personal escort for the entire adventure: a wonderful staff member named Nichole. Nicholas was blown away by the incredible treatment he received and especially enjoyed the great conversations with Captain Lee and Eric Gilbert. What a memorable experience!
You can read all about his amazing adventure on his blog, at http://www.nicscorner.com/sfdk1.htm . Nicholas also encourages you to join Facebook, if you haven’t already, and become a fan of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!
Nicholas and his family will be buying their season passes soon, as they are only $49.99 ($20 off) until April 11. The season passes include, among other great benefits, five FREE tickets for friends to use on selected days, as well as unlimited free admission to fourteen Six Flags parks (including Magic Mountain in nearby Valencia, CA).
