From James RaoI would not buy ahead of time, but if it is crowded when you get there, and you can afford it, get a flashpass.

Also, get the best one you can afford. If you can go Platinum, why not? You get to ride almost without a wait, and you can stay on the attraction for a second ride without having to exit and re-board. Sweet.
From Cl menGreat!! this is alot of help; i go with the plantium; any other helpful information you can give me?

From Deidre DennisWe are big users of any front of the line pass, but went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas a couple of days ago and THOUGHT about getting the pass. We got there just after opening and it was PACKED, but I'm happy to report that there was no need for the pass. I think the longest wait for anything was 15 minutes, and that was because the Scooby Doo ride broke down, (but fixed immediately).

This is not the largest park, and we only considered getting the Flash Pass because it's ridiculously hot down here. I can't recall being stuck in the sun at all during our waits. That was awesome.
If you want to splurge, go for it. And I can't belive I'm saying this but I wouldn't spend the money on it, only because based on our trip, the wait times were non-existent. We went on a Saturday, too.
From Cl menWow im suprised to hear this; well i take your advice and not purchase it; i have a 2 year old and 9 year old so again i dont like waiting in lines but if you say its not worth it then fine i take your advice and wait until we are there. any other tips?

From Deidre DennisYou have little ones & I don't know how much of the heat they can take. Definitely get there as early as possible & head straight to the area for the little ones.
