Six Flags Over Texas, an amusement park located in Arlington, Texas, provides residents around the state with warm thrills and fun times. Expanding over 212 acres, the park houses over 40 rides to entertain every family member.

In the 1950’s, Angus G. Wynne Jr. had a dream to build a different entertainment form for many families. He wanted larger sized parks filled with fun and thrill rides. Little did he know that his dream would come true and turn into Six Flags Over Texas.

The park opened on August 5, 1961 achieving the title of the first official Six Flags Theme Park. When the park opened, it had only six themed areas; Spain, Mexico, France, United States, Texas, and the Old South. Six flags that flew over Texas represents the six countries that had an impact on Texas eventful history.

Currently, the park has ten themes within it. In addition to the six original themes, it now has Looney Tunes, DC Comics, The Tower Section, and The Oil Derrick as special areas.

Six Flags Over Texas has many iconic rides, such as Titan, the New Texas Giant, and the Texas Skyscreamer.

The Titan has a 255 foot drop and reaches a speed of 85 miles per hour. The New Texas Giant, a steel hybrid coaster, will take riders on nearly a mile long trajectory at a speed of 65 miles per hour starting with a drop of 153 feet high. The Texas Skyscreamer spins riders up, down, and around a 400 foot tall tower.

Six Flags Over Texas, progressive with new ideas, yet tuned to guests’ desires,  plans on opening its 14th roller coaster called El Diablo. Thrilling, electrifying, and roaring, this new ride will propel riders forward and backward in a loop.

For an outstanding experience, visit Six Flags Over Texas soon!
