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
I've been going here for years and the park is now much more cleaner than it was in the past. Not 1980s -90s clean but obvious this has been a focus. There was plenty of security present and this always seems to maintain a calm atmosphere. Food choices were great. I went on a weekday and it was definitely not too busy. There was a lack of entertainment beyond the rides and several kids rides were down. Overall the family had a great time.
Went on a Thursday (10/21/2021), which is during Fright Fest, and overall had a good experience. Got in line for parking a little over an hour before the parked opened at 6PM and was able to be one of the first into the park. Was able to get on the rides I wanted to (The Batman) pretty quickly and multiple times before it got really busy. The Fright Fest atmosphere was really fun, and me and my girlfriend enjoyed exploring the park. Couple of negatives about the experience: 1. The single day dining pass doesn't mention when purchasing online that the included two meals can't be redeemed at the same time. Instead you have to wait at least 1.5 hours before redeeming the second meal. This sucked because I got my meal late into the trip, so when my second meal became available most of the food places were closing. If this happens to you I would recommend contacting your bank or credit card company requesting a charge back for the dining plan. The fact that this information isn't immediately and easily disclosed before purchasing is deceptive. 2. Many rides were closed even though they weren't marked closed in their app. They obviously don't want people to know how many rides are closed, and it feels dishonest.
