Six Flags Over Texas trip

Six Flags Over Texas: It's my first trip, and I'm looking for advice.

Being from the Midwest, and moving to Houston a few months ago, I'll miss trips to Cedar Point, Six Flags Great America, and Michigan's Adventure every year. . .

I'm looking to go to Six Flags Over Texas in the next month or so. Anyone have any tips or experiences outside of what I've already found here? Anything would be immensely helpful!

My advice is don't go! I grew up going to this park and it has gone downhill over the years. The Six Flags I knew actually used to be a "theme" park. Now it's just a dirty mess and the only decent ride is the Titan. My company actually has our annual picnic there for free and I still won't go for free if that tells you anything.

If your into coasters arrive when the park opens. Go directly to Tony Hawk, followed by Mr Freeze, and Batman. You will be able to ride those rides with a minimal wait at that time. It's one of my favorite Six Flags parks.

Well, here's the thing. . . I lived in Michigan. I purchased a Season Pass with the intention of using it for SF Great America. Work took me to Texas before I could use the Pass, and I'm trying to get some use out of it.

I'm into coasters, so I'll definitely give those a shot. I'll have to see if it'll be worth it to go back for Texas Giant next year.

As a follow-up, I went a few weeks ago, and I had a pretty decent time. I was able to ride almost everything (the exceptions being any rides shut down).

I would go again.

You'd go again? Wait for me and the K-Man next time.
