The first Six Flags theme park, Six Flags Over Texas boasts over 35 amusement rides. Thrill seekers should head to the mighty Texas sky screamer or Titan roller coaster to experience speeds of 137 km/h (85 mph) and a 78 m (255 ft) drop. Children and the less adventurous can enjoy the swinging ship, log flume, and spinning teacups. You can take a break from the rides at one of the park’s live entertainment shows. Dining options include American fare, international cuisine, healthy options, and amusement park classics. Lines can be long, but flash pass holders have much shorter waiting times. Our Arlington trip maker tool makes visiting Six Flags Over Texas and other Arlington attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Six Flags Over Texas Reviews
This is a very popular park so it is not unusual to have to wait in line 50 min. to an hour, but if you can visit on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evening during the school year, you will find muc... more »
If you are looking for a holiday experience for you, friends, or family - Holiday in the Park at Six Flags is a good choice. It is ideal if you already have a season pass as it is included in that. I ... more »
I love coming to Six Flags! We got a season pass and come quite frequently. We almost always have a great time! The rides are awesome, food is yummy (though expensive), and it's a great place to make friends! Took a star off because most employees just don't seem to care. It is a treat when you're greeted enthusiastically and are quickly and kindly served. Most employees have responded with "I dunno" when asked the simplest of questions, like "Where is the nearest restroom?". I'd say, on average, 1 in 4 employees are knowledgeable about their work environment/park layout and 1 in 8 employees are kind and helpful and help provide a pleasant park experience. It's kinda what you get when you mainly employ teens who don't really care about anything other than doing bare minimum and getting paid. My only other complaints are the prices of, well everything, and the fact that we (and many others) had trouble after buying a 2 park season pass. (When we went to hurricane harbor, they said we only had a six flags pass, even though we paid for the 2 park pass- had to wait 2 hours to get in the park). I understand I should expect to pay a pretty penny when coming to an amusement park, but I don't want to be price gouged from the moment I pay for parking, to the minute I walk out of the park. Thank God we spent $200 and got a season pass with free parking and discounts on food as well as bought a $30 refillable six flags cup (which a park employee tried to steal -problem was rectified by mgmt though), otherwise we wouldn't come here, what with entry fees being $75 per person ($60 ticket, $10 processing fee, $5 taxes.)
What can I say, most people love amusement parks. I’m not a roller coaster gal, but I go with the family anyway. We first went to six flags because our daughter was performing there. I love that Six Flags showcases local talent. It’s fun to walk through the park and hear different kids of music! We ended up getting season passes, which is nice because we can go for a little while without feeling pushed to do everything in one day. We’ve been to Holiday in the Park which was super fun. Some days it’s really busy and, without a fast pass, 90% your day will be spent standing in line. That’s just how it is at amusement parks now days- so get the fast pass if you want to ride more than one or two things on a busy day. Overall Six Flags is clean. They have lots of friendly staff, ready to help if you need anything and the park offers a lot of different options for the whole fam. It’s easy to get to and parking is simple. AND they offer a bunch of options for season passes. Five Stars Six Flags
