Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington

3.7
The first Six Flags theme park, Six Flags Over Texas boasts over 35 amusement rides. Thrill seekers should head to the mighty Texas sky screamer or Titan roller coaster to experience speeds of 137 km/h (85 mph) and a 78 m (255 ft) drop. Children and the less adventurous can enjoy the swinging ship, log flume, and spinning teacups. You can take a break from the rides at one of the park’s live entertainment shows. Dining options include American fare, international cuisine, healthy options, and amusement park classics. Lines can be long, but flash pass holders have much shorter waiting times. Our Arlington trip maker tool makes visiting Six Flags Over Texas and other Arlington attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We had traveled from South Florida to visit Six Flags - December 26. Unfortunately this was one of the coldest days of the winter (so far) We had traveled this far with the plans on seeing the snow mo...  more »
  • My kids ages 8, 9, 13, 15 , and 17 enjoy the rides. Some are more adventurous than others, but they each find a ride that's a good fit.  more »

  • I normally love six flags, but I went tonight and it was fright fest, i am never going to fright fest again. I was never scared by a zombie an the haunted house that was supposedly the best. It was do stupid and not even scary. This was in October and it saved my review. Now it is January and I just visited holiday in the park. Never go on a weekend. It is so packed I didn't even get to ride 1 ride. I am really disappointed with the park. I will continue to go but never during fright fest or holiday in the park.
  • Season pass holder. Workers are generally nice and seem like they enjoy being there. Rides are great and good mix of ride for adults and family. Restrooms need upgrades and better hour to hour maintenance. The same hand dryer is broken after several months in the same restroom— it has either stayed broken or continually breaks and I happen to catch it each time. Toilet paper and soap will run out. Faucets are the worst for various reasons— water too hot, auto water sensor doesn’t detect hands or just broken, water flow is weak so you can’t effectively wash hands, the faucet isn’t set close enough to the sink so you can’t wash hands without hitting the back of the sink. Restaurants are dirty. The silver ware dispensers look like they haven’t been cleaned in a year. The BBQ place’s condiments bar is messy and sticky.
  • We have season passes bought during the promo for free Gold upgrade that includes entry into any six flags theme parks, season parking pass to all parks, & hurricane harbor water park. Bought 2018 passes in 2017 so were able to go too Hurricane harbor once, enjoy SF during 2017 Fright fest, &Holiday in the park. For the first time we purchased basic meal passes on sale that include 1 lunch meal&1 snack. We then upgrade our daughter's (to gold) meal plan that includes dinner & the cup that gets drinks(at no additional fee) all season long. So far all have likely paid for themselves before 2018 has officially started!
  • Never had been to a Six Flags before. Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. During freight fest, there's lots to do and see. Staff are dressed up as zombies and placed throughout the park to try and jump out and scare you. Only down side, is haunted houses are really not that scary. Food is great but pretty pricey (as you would expect from an amusement park). Wear good walking shoes as things are pretty spread out. Lots to do for the little ones as well and is a safe environment. Cops and nurses located on site. Great atmosphere and lines are not half bad (we only had to wait, the longest ride about 15 min)
  • Holiday in the park transforms Six Flags into a festive attraction. There are lights every where. There is a gigantic tree made out of smaller trees that has lights coordinated to music. In front there is a stage where young performers showcase their talents. On this trip I didn't see one character and that was the only disappointment. Food is okay. Parking is plentiful.
