MADE FOR THRILL SEEKERS
If chaotic, gravity-defying rides are what you’re here for, the park’s Gotham City area is where you want to head first. Here, every ride is fast, thrilling and just straight up bizarre! We like to start with CATWOMAN Whip, which is a good warm-up. And if you’re brave enough to get twirled and tossed up and down on a high-speed ride, try THE JOKER. If you want something dizzying and terrifying, get on The RIDDLER Revenge, which goes as high as 147 feet above the ground. Of course, when in Texas, try the Texas SkyScreamer where you’re dangling in a swing chair, 40 stories high!
WHAT TO WATCH
Throughout the season, there will be live performances on the Silver Star Carousel stage (near the entrance) to add to the festivities. There is also a basketball three-point shooting contest going on everyday, an open mic karaoke, and we heard that there is even a dance competition coming in April! How cool is that?
FOR THE YOUNGER ONES
There are plenty of fun things to do with younger kids all over the Six Flags Over Texas. Bugs Bunny Boomtown is my family’s favorite spot featuring a play area, a splashy ride called the Daffy Duck Bucket and much more. We are huge fans of the El Sombrero ride in the Mexico area and the teacup ride, Yosemite Sam’s Texas Teacups. If you want to sit back and explore the entire park, the Boomtown Depot train ride is an excellent option for getting off your feet as it takes you on a tour around the park through areas not accessible by foot.
WHAT TO EAT
As soon as you walk into the park, you’ll be greeted by a Dippin’ Dots stand that serves up a must-try magical treat called “The Pink Thing.” Although it has taken many different forms (from ice cream to popsicles), this pinkish frozen treat has been the park’s tradition since the 1960’s. If you want something more filling, go with the turkey legs, nachos, BBQ or even Asian cuisine you’ll find throughout the park…and that’s just the start! Trust me, there’s tons of delicious food at Six Flags Over Texas.
