Six Flags Over Texas
The current version of this description is at .Location: Six Flags Over Texas is located in Arlington, between Dallas and Fort Worth at the intersection of Interstate 30 and Highway 360 (Angus Wynne Jr. Freeway).
Six Flags Over Texas
History: Six Flags Over Texas opened in 1961 and is the oldest park in the Six Flags chain.
The park is not owned by the Six Flags Theme Parks Corporation. In an arrangement similar to that for Six Flags Over Georgia, it is owned by a group of approximately 120 limited partners and managed by Six Flags.
The park's name refers to the flags of the six different nations that have governed Texas: the Confederate States of America, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, Spain, and the United States of America.
Hours: Six Flags Over Texas is open from March through New Years. However, it is closed many weekdays during the school year. Check the park's website for specific operating hours.
Tickets: Buy and print online. Always try to buy your tickets in advance, to save time when you get to the park.
Strategy: As with any amusement park, arrive early (at least :30 minutes before opening) and hit the headliner attractions first (coasters like New Texas Giant, Titan, Freeze, and Batman). As part of your coaster tour make sure to hit Runaway Mountain as it is a lightly themed darkride with a fairly unique track layout. -- Last edited by James Rao on August 28, 2011
