A Little History on the Park
In 1968 the park opened as Marine World in Redwood city in California as a small oceanarium. Later the park merged with a land animal park called Africa USA in the mid 70s. The park got renamed to Marine World Africa USA.
The park property became a tax burden and the owner looked for a new spot to move the park. In 1985 they found a new larger park facility in Vallejo, California. The new park opened in 1986 and again under supervision of the non-profit Marine World Foundation. The park became property of the City of Vallejo in 1996, because of the debt attached to the park. In 1997 the city hired Six Flags to make some changes to the park and to manage and maintain the park and in 1999 the name of the park got changed to Six Flags.
