Six Flags Fiesta Texas

By

Six Flags Fiesta Texas

There are plenty of rides at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Regardless of whether you prefer pop, country, rock & roll, gospel, or rhythm and blues, Fiesta Texas almost certainly has a concert or musical revue that's just right for you. From one-night-only events featuring some of the biggest stars in the world, to summer concert series, to the culturally diverse performances scheduled daily, the biggest problem for music aficionados won't be deciding what to do; it'll be deciding what not to do.

Of course, with its fine selection of thrill rides, the park hits plenty of high-notes with its non-musical numbers as well, from the 16-story tall, 70 mph Superman: Krypton Coaster to the floorless, 164-feet free-fall machine Scream. But its finest ride is Iron Rattler, a humdinger of a hybrid wooden-steel coaster that is among the world's finest.

But Six Flags Fiesta Texas isn't just about mirth on earth. Its White Water Bay water park is huge and includes 13 different aquatic attractions ranging from Splashwater Springs (a kid-sized water complex featuring numerous rides and interactive activities) to the Texas Tumble, a large-scale, high speed rafting experience for the whole family. Best of all, the water park is included in the general admission price to Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

As with all Six Flags parks, Six Flags Fiesta Texas offers Fright Fest. The annual Halloween celebration includes haunted mazes, special shows, and other features to mark the holiday.
