Christmas Time at Six FlagsFlag review
We took our kids for Six Flags version of Holiday in the Park and we all had a blast. The lines weren't that long and there was many things to do for all of us. My wife and myself enjoyed sledding down snow hill while my kids loved riding the kids rides. The only thing that disappointed us was many of the scheduled shows were not being played despite being on the schedule. We also liked the all you could drink hot chocolate deal they had, it really helped with it being so cold. I would recommend bringing your kids out for this, it's a lot of fun for everyone.

Came here on Black Friday, and it wasn't too crowded. I'm a whiny baby and don't want to wait more than 5 minutes for a ride, but 20-30 seemed to be average'ish and was tolerable. Notes: THE PINK THINGS ARE NOT THE SAME. Screw that. They are like cotton candy flavored now and in push pops. Not right. The Runaway Minetrain is so legit, I love it! The new Texas Giant is legit fun. AND YOU WILL LOSE YOUR CELL PHONE. I had a rubber case on my iPhone, it was in my pocket. I thought it felt safe. I ignored the fact that 2500 had been lost so far, and like 7 that day. Nooooo, wasn't going to happen to me. Six Flags has been very helpful so far in getting it back to me :) Props to them! From the security g...
Growing up poor, white trash... this was where my family would "vacation" during the summer. When I was in college, my friend and I had season passes one semester. After our morning classes, we'd hit Six Flags at least every other week until it closed for the season. It pays for itself after 2 or so times. So, it's a bargain as long as you stay away from the trinkets and such. Going during the week when the youngsters are back in school, you'll virtually have the whole place to yourself. I just took my 5 year-old there for the first time. Luckily, he's tall for his age so we could ride rides that I liked too (Shock Wave, Pandemonium etc.) - although don't think he's "Titan Material" just yet. Next y...
MOMS, READ THIS! Best time to go is midweek, go first thing in the morning when they open, and bring a handkerchief to help you keep cool. I took my husband (who hates Texas heat), 6 year old son, and 4 year old daughter. There are plenty of rides to take both children on and cool prizes to win at the game tables (my son won Shadow!). The park was very, very clean and every attendant was kind and helpful. I bought a funnel cake and wasn't so sure we'd like the apples on top and the lady behind the counter told me to bring it back if I didn't like it. The park offers free cups of water at every eating place and there is a mister every 20 or so yards in every direction to help cool off. I haven't been to...
I love Six Flags Over Texas! I've been coming here since I was 3 which really wasn't that long ago! They have made several improvements in the last few years. It's surprisingly cleaner than it use to be. It's well worth the money for a season pass. We go for a few hours so we don't get too worn out. We never go on weekends or holidays because it's too crowded. I also suggest buying a parking pass. It's worth the money if you have a season pass. There is a ton of shade so the heat is really only factor on a few rides. They've also added a bunch of smaller rides throughout the park in case you have some less thrill seeking friends or children. I've been bringing my kids since they were babies and I hope this p...
We attended during Spring Break, it seemed liked everyone and their mama decided to take their family to Six Flags at the same time as we did. FYI to self : never attended Six Flags during Spring Break week.. HWY 360 was pretty much at a standstill. Once we made it into the Six Flags gate, paid $15 bucks for parking, only available parking was touching the woods at the rear of the parking lot, walked about a mile to the gate and made a mental note that the only way my family of seven would have any opportunity to actually sit on a ride would be for me to break down and purchase the Flash Pass at $187(Gold) pass they do offer regular(less repeat rides) and Platinum($$$), that would accomodate 4 people. it mad...
Went here with my son at the end of July and was a little disappointed. the food was way over priced. the park was cleaner then some we have been to. when we arrived my son wanted to ride one of the roller coasters first thing. we arrived and were told it needed to go through its safety ...
Well let me begin by saying that the kids enjoyed Six Flags....the wife and I not so much. I found it in need of renovation. I don't understand why it is hard for places to touch up the paint...it makes it look so much better. The lines are horrific!!! This is probably the major complaint I heard from others. I'm not sure you can blame this on...
I went today, a Friday, There weren't a whole lot of people today which is good. You can ride almost everything without waiting more than 4 or 5 minutes. I forgot how ridiculously expensive food cost there. I went on an empty stomach which was my first mistake. Second, is I guess I am getting old because after each ride I felt the life being sucked out of me but thats my problem not Six Flags :( I used to be able to hang there ALLL day and tear that place down.....as a kid. They are renovating the Texas Giant it wont be ALL wood anymore from the looks of it. Its about time the did because that is one ride that would leave bruises when I thought I was un-Bruisable. The Mr. Freeze which is My favorite ride ...
