Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Location: San Antonio, TX
Deep in the heart of Texas is a place that was literally made from nothing. It's not just a place to visit while in San Antonio, but the reason why you went to San Antonio. Six Flags Fiesta Texas has shown its big brother over in Dallas, that Six Flags Over Texas isn't the only game in town. Time is sometimes all you need to truly make something wonderful.
Fiesta Texas opened to the public on March 12,1992 on land formerly used as a rock quarry. The joint venture of Gaylord Entertainment Company, and USAA Real Estate Company were the ones to bring this park alive. The original idea for the park was to focus on the southern Texas culture and music instead of rides. In 1995 Gaylord sold it's 14 percent share in the park back to USAA, after the park wasn't making the money they hoped for. 1996 brought in Time Warner Parks to run the park. Shortly thereafter, Premier bought Fiesta Texas from Time Warner and became the sole owner of Fiesta Texas on April 1, 1998.
The king of all amusement parks are the roller coasters, and Six flags Fiesta Texas is no exception. They provide an assortment of rides for all types of people. From the high speed thrill junkie, to the air time lover, and rides for the little kids, Fiesta Texas has you covered. Again, to get more in depth into the coasters I'm about to mention,head on over to our ride gallery section with all the coasters you can sink your teeth into. The Rattler originally opened with the park, and was a wooden beast. However now with the help of RMC it's a steel monster with the name of Iron Rattler. A floor less coaster is a a great way to feel that your literally ridding the rails, and you'll feel like this, as well as like a bird or plane as you ride Superman: Krypton coaster. If getting blasted in a bowl of confusion is your type of thing, you'll have your hearts delight when getting haunted by The Poltergeist. After you conquer Goliath, a B&M invert try and see if you can keep your head on straight after you get off Boomerang: Coast to Coaster. You may not be feeling it yet, but I'm sure you will after a spin on the Gerstlauer spinning coaster Pandemonium. Be sure to take the family on Arrow last mine train coast Road Runner Express, and get those little ones get on the Kiddie Koaster.
White Water Bay water is and easy way to cool off from the Texas heat. With slides, a lazy river and many more things you could spend most of your day here. Don't forget the thrilling flat rides that make you scream for more. Some of these rides are Scream, The Twister, and SkyScreamer. You can't forget to gather your group and head to Scooby-Doo's Haunted Mansion, to fight those monsters.
From opening weekend, to Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park this park is truly a year round experience. As you leave San Antonio, you might forget the Alamo, but after a day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas you'll hold on to those memories for a lifetime.
