Make the most of your time in DFW and visit one of the area’s top attractions, Six Flags Over Texas! It’s always a fun place for your family to explore, but you’ll want to check out these top insider tips to make this trip to Six Flags your most memorable one yet. Plus, you’ll score some serious cred with the kids for having all of the scoop!
EXPERIENCE THE MOST THRILL-INDUCING RIDES IN THE SOUTHWEST
The rides at Six Flags Over Texas bring all the feels and all the thrills. Don’t miss the brand new rides at GOTHAM city, including THE RIDDLER Revenge rotating pendulum swing, CATWOMAN Whip and HARLEY QUINN Spin Sanity. And with all-time favorites like the Titan and The New Texas Giant, there is something for all the thrill seekers in your bunch. There’s even a new virtual reality experience, Galactic Attack – on the Shockwave, Six Flags’ double loop coaster!
Insider Tip: CATWOMAN Whip is the only ride of its kind in the world, and the Texas SkyScreamer is the current Guinness World Records holder for the “World’s Tallest Carousel Ride.” Not too shabby!
FIGHT SOME BAD GUYS
Take on the Joker and other Gotham City bullies on JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis where you have the chance to whip and whirl around the darkest corners of Gotham to save the day. This ride is especially popular with the older kids, so keep in mind that the height minimum is 42!
Insider Tip: There’s a high score every hour so make sure you’re hitting your target to see your photo on the big screen.
Six Flag’s annual Fright Fest takes Halloween to a whole new level. Be prepared to have ghouls meet you in the street and scream as you wander through haunted mazes. If you dare, check out the newest spooky attraction this year – Blackout.
Insider Tip: Keep an eye out for Annie, Six Flag’s local haunt. Legend has it she hangs out in the Texas part of the park!
When picking one of Six Flags Over Texas’ many eclectic food options, you’re more than likely to find something that will please every palate! The corn dogs right across from the Superman Tower of Power are famous; pair them up with some deliciously-golden brown curly fries and you’ve got a scrumptious meal! On your way out, treat yourself and your family to a refreshing cherry-flavored frozen treat: the delicious “Pink Thing” is the perfect way to end the day.
Insider Tip: For a more economical option, pack a lunch and make a picnic. Conveniently located, the picnic areas are close to the park and inside the parking lot where tons of families take their lunch break.
HEAD TO BUGS BUNNY BOOMTOWN
If you have kiddos under 5, this is the perfect place to bring them while you’re at Six Flags. Said to be for the “thrill-seeker-in-training”, Bugs Bunny Boomtown has a plethora of kid-size rides with super thrills for the little ones.
SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME TOGETHER
The best thing about visiting Six Flags Over Texas is spending quality time with close friends and family for the entire day. From screaming on a ride together to laughing in unison at a show – making memories with those closest to you always spells fun!
