Six Flags Over Texas
Often referred to as "The Entertainment Capital of Texas," Six Flags offers 200 acres (809,371 square meters) of rides, shows and attractions. For many years, this family amusement park has delighted Texans and others from around the world. Ride the 109-foot-tall (33 meters) "Batman the Ride," which travels up to 50 miles per hour (80 kilometers per hour) and watch stuntmen perform as Wild West gunslingers in an action-filled street shootout. Rates vary during the winter months. The park is usually closed between early January and early March, reopens daily for two weeks in March, and then opens on weekends until the area schools let out in late May. Phone ahead or visit the website to check on any schedule changes.
This is a great place to stay if you like high thrilling rides and loopy loop roller coasters. Not much for the kids but they still have a great time. The prices were horrible - it is 3.50 for a water bottle. Also, some 20 people have died in the park. If you do go make sure you tell your kids not to go on "Superman" because a young boy has just died on it. And also if you have common sense you will never go on "Kinda Kai" because 12 people have died on it. It is when it goes strigaht up and does a loop at 34432 ft and comes back down. Overall I guess it was pretty great!
This has been a family favorite for many years. I have visited this park for about 35 years and running. It features a lot of neat rides. It is currently owned by the Washington Red Skins organization. Tom Cruise and Katie have visited other park sites because he is friend of Red Skins owner.
Six Flags has two wooden rollercoasters and a half-dozen steel models. One of the oldest rides is the Texas Shootout. It still takes your breath away to this day. They are currently running Spook the Park and have it decorated accordingly. The food is fine and restrooms are ok. There is plenty of parking and a gas station on site.
This is a family friendly park as they have a partnership with Warner Brothers Licensing.
There are plenty of hotels to check out nearby.
If you get hot, there is a Wet N Wild just across the highway.
This place was flithy!!
The security would stop people who shouldn't be stopped, but let people in who should be banned!
The characters were too busy interacting with each other than with the children. The costumes were dirty.
The brunch with Bugs Bunny was awful. The place smelled and floor/tables were dirty.
This place was just horrible. I would not let my worse enemy go there!
I would not go here again. I will save my money and spend it at Walt Disney World where they know how to run an amusement park.
It's the first full week of August and they cut the hours to 7 hrs per day. Not to mention 3 of the MAJOR rides are shut down for decorating until Oct. Their brochures in all hotels showed summertime hours until mid Aug. Add to all of this they shut down all rides for 3 hours because there "was lightning within a 20 mile radius" and what you get is a family's money and vacation wasted and larger than normal profits for Six Flags for that day. Tickets were same price so how much $ did Six Flags save by only running 3/4 of the rides for only 4 hours that day?
Every year we pack our bags and visit Six Flags at least once or twice (never made it around to buying Season Passes yet though).
Not mentioning that we spend a fortune just to get in there, but once you get hungry plan on spent the rest money you might have on food that you don't like! Even parking will cost you an arm and a leg...
However, we still like spending a whole day in the fun atmosphere. Adding 10 more new attractions (???) - not one of them as much fun as we hoped by the way, did not help Six Flags at all, we were pretty much disappointed of the new rides.
At least there are many good ways to cool off in the heat at Six Flags, be it the nice shows or the breezy water misters around the park.
With 3 kids (aged 9 to 13) I like to go because there is fun for everyone.
However, we were outraged to find the park open only from 11 am to 6 pm in August of 2006....why change the times already before school even starts? 7 hours do not come clode to what it takes to see the park (once you wait in line for quite a while on every single ride). The Titan is not even an option (except this is the only ride you would want to go on) - as the waiting line seems to be anywhere but the park anymore.
Yes, there are the Q-Bots where you do not have to literally wait in line anymore, but, hey....an additional $60 per person for such a thingy just so you won't have to wait in line???? Cutting in front of other people is rude, having to pay a horrendous amount of money for it on top of that (I rather not say what I would call that!).
However, every once in a while we just have to splurge and indulge, even if it costs a fortune to be there. The attractions are great (except the boring 10 new ones) and we are always looking forward to go...just please keep your doors open a little bit longer (last year we could enjoy the park from 10 am to 8 pm!!!)
My husband and I and our 3 children went 06/29/06. It is VERY expensive. We were there from 10am-10pm. We had ALOT of fun. But expect to spend alot of money. We left around lunch and checked into our hotel and then ate lunch somewhere else and then went back to six flags. The food is way to expensive and you have to wait in line forever. Just to get refills you had to wait at LEAST 30 minutes. Bottled water is like $3.50 a bottle. That is just one example of the prices. You pay like $56 a person then for the speed pass is $90 for the family. We didn't get it.
My boyfriend took my son and myself there on May 26, 2006 and we had the time of our lives. It was my son and myself 1st time there. The rides are the best. I would tell all of my friends to go there. Everyone there was so friendly. Thanks for the fun.
Six Flags Over Texas is Awesome. The main downside is the park layout it is very confusing and hard to navigate what ride you want to get to. The lines were moderate to high during the day but after about 7:30 or 8 the lines became short, I waited in line 15 minutes for the Titan, and 5 for the Texas Giant. It is a great place to visit!
We are from Tulsa, Oklahoma. The closet thing we have to six Flags it a rundown piece, with 1 rollercoaster. So needless to say, sixflags was exciting. From the looks of it, being a season pass holder, its the best way to go.
You are getting what u pay for! The entry fee is high, but the park is SPOTT-LESS. there were TONS of workers, Cleaning constantly, But always staying out of your way. ex: Letting u walk before them. And giving good directions.
The parking is expensive, but when you've been here all day, the $20 to prefer park PAYS OFF!!!!!!
The food is WAYYYY over priced! 5.99 for a double dip oce cream!!!!! Also the people who run the games are ANNOYING, ive been on cruises to mexico, and the begging relates...
overall, this was the cleanest, and best value park ive ever been too!
