Six Flags Fiesta Texas
It just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The city's largest theme park now boasts not only the shows and musical reviews that made it popular, but also dozens of rides and a water park. Prepare for everything when you visit Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Each year the park adds new and faster rides, primarily in the roller coaster category. The water park expands exponentially each year, as well. In addition, the musical shows always manage to upstage what had been done previously. All of the shows are held at Lone Star Lil's in Crackaxle Canyon. Definitely an all-day trip, Fiesta Texas is a fun, but expensive, adventure. Admission varies depending on the season.
I visited Six Flags Fiesta Texas, for the very first time ever, on Monday 7/30/12. In comparison to the other Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Kings Island, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Universal Studios, Disney World, etc.), it ranks near the bottom. In order to help Six Flags Corporate to improve this park, I want to offer some suggestions. First, make sure there is a minimum of 2 trains on ever roller coaster in the park to decrease wait time. Why there was only one train on the Goliath, Rattler, Poltergeist, and the Road Runner is beyond me? I have NEVER seen that before unless the Roller Coaster was designed to only have one train on it at a time (i.e., Boomerang, etc.). By running 2 trains on every ride, you eliminate the number one complaint against this park. Waiting 30+ minutes to ride the Goliath is ridiculous. Second, re-think your ride operators. High school students should not be working these rides for numerous reasons (i.e., immature, breaking rules, safety reasons, work rate, etc.). There are more then enough college students/adults who can work the rides. Also, 2-3 workers per roller coaster is not enough. Fewer workers means more delays and more safety issues. In comparison, Cedar Point has at least 5 workers per roller coaster. They have 4 workers ensuring safety and 1 ride operator. Third, place more workers in the parking toll booths and have more workers picking up trash before the park opens. First impressions are very important and when people have to wait 10-20 minutes to get into a parking lot and look out there car windows at the trash on the ground is not good. In comparison, all of the other Amusement Parks have at minimum of 4 or more lines open at a time. Fourth, lower your parking costs to $10 per vehicle per visit. This goes with the first impressions concept. Increase the price of you season passes to offset the lost revenue. In my opinion, your season passes should cost $89-99. Most area residents will still buy season passes even if the price goes up by $10-20 per season pass. Fifth, explain to your employees that they have a job and that customer satisfaction is priority number one. If you need more help on this matter then, talk with people at Walt Disney World or with people at Cedar Fair as their employees are a lot more friendly. Finally, add some more attractions (i.e., a few more family friendly rides along with TWO new roller coasters, etc.), bring in more special events (i.e., music competitions, athletic/dance/cheer contests, etc.), and increase your use of cartoon characters and/or themes. This can be easily done if you are serious about improving this park to equal the level I have heard about at few other parks (i.e., Six Flags Magic Mountain, etc.). If you do all of these things then, I can guarantee your attendance and revenue will go up significantly. If you don't do these things then, I recommend selling the park to Cedar Fair Amusement Parks and let them see what they can do with the park. Especially when considering how much your attendance has dropped off over the past 15 years. Overall, there is a solid foundation on which to build a high quality amusement park. There are many good facets to the park. For example, getting rid of the "Rattler" is a HUGE step in the right direction. That has to be the worst ride I have ever ridden in my life. Plus the ride was boring and watching the track sway several feet as the train rode over the tracks caused concern as we waited in the worst line and queuing station I have ever been in. In conclusion, I would recommend that people visit this park at least once. However, I am guessing that many people (like myself) will not go back a second time with the park in its' current condition. By making many improvements, I am sure many people will give the park another chance and may be more willing to visit the park multiple times. Until that time, I will NOT be returning to Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
like most of the big coasters , the one we liked the least the rattler , although its a good ride , it also beat you to death, there is retail but not as much as other amusment parks , the the first thing you do when you get there is buy a sports bottle , its free refills all day , the best feature is the lockers in front of each ride so you could put ur loose articles in it so you wouldnt loose them on the ride, the lines was not all that bad , the longest we waited was 25 minutes ,the park was pretty clean, although once you got near one water rides it had a slight stinch to is but its was barible , lots of shade , they had misters around the park, most of the rides had shaded waiting lines , sum with fans
I love this park. I have a season pass and go when ever I can with my friends. I love roller coasters and the rides there are AMAZING. it is even fun when I go with a friend who doesnt like roller coasters because there are other rides we both enjoy.
I go there sometimes and its a great park! Its not the best park in my opinion but its still pretty darn good. To the people that are complaining about on march 16,2011 i was there and the reason why the cops were directing traffic was because a a little boy who was taller than 6 feet went on the scream and injured his leg. So i don't understand how people complain how oh its soo dirty well duh there is a lot of people there!! Its a huge park do you think they can clean every little piece of trash the second it hits the floor? And those shirts are to tell you you're at an amusement park dont act like a bunch of stuck up animals. Geez..
The water park was disgusting and smelled like urine and the restrooms had crap all over them I held it . The park itself has change it is dirty and isn't fun anymore . For someone that pays a lot for a pass should at least go into a park knowing they paid for a nice clean park... I recommend seaworld..
