Good family fun. Allow plenty of time to wait in lines.

I remember going to Six Flags as a child in the late 60s. It has changed a great deal, and not all for the better, but mostly better. Some of the old atmosphere is sadly gone. Look for old photos in the park on hanging near the foot paths of the old Six Flags. I miss the "Sky Ride" the most. Be sure to check out the new "Texas Giant". On a busy hot summer day, opt for the "fast pass" to skip the lines, but know that this only allows you to skip the line once for ea ride, as they keep track of your pass. The long lines can actually be an advantage if you are on a date and want some face time. Is he hard to get corralled? When in line he won't have much to distract him, so he'll be talking to you.:)

The rides are GREAT, park is clean and staff is friendly. We went May 5th 2012, and it was quite busy, but we bought the fast pass option, so we got to skip most all lines. Worth the extra money! The worst part about the park is the lay out. It is really spread out and difficult to find rides and to get to rides on the fast pass. Have to really pay attention when setting your next ride time. First couple we set were FAR apart and made it to the ride way past our ride time (which is not a problem to get on the fast pass line past your appointment time) just a time killer, because then you have to wait about 15 - 30 mins before the next ride time. They give you a little pager size computer and you have to set appointment for each ride, but can not set more than one ride at a time. So as soon as you get scanned into that ride, you set for the next ride, then by the time you finish your ride and walk to the next it is the next appointment time (unless you mess up and set a ride that is WAY away from the ride you just got off) Another great thing about Six Flags Over Texas, is the souvenir cups, they are as low as $9.99 each if buy 3 and FREE refills all day. The snacks are priced the same as any place really. PARKING, it is worth the extra $5- $10 for the premium parking. We did not get it and parked in Oklahoma LOL, or might as well been. where the Premium was across from the entrance. There is also an option for Vallet I think it runs $30 which would be great also. All in all it is a great weekend trip. Some of the best rides around.
