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 used to be season ticket holders until there was only one among us who loves the thrill rides, so it's been about 3 years since we visited the park. First impression was that this place could reall...  more »

  • We visited Six Flags on 10-27-17. Overall the park wasn't too bad. Lots of smoke and Halloween music going on. I gave a 4 cause my kids had fun. The only thing I noticed were several items not being o...  more »

  • Our party of five had a blast on the rides. The prices are breathtakingly high either in dollars or time, which is a serious gotcha. Don't come on a Saturday, especially in summer, work/travel schedule permitting. Fast Passes for rides are evidently 50% off with military discount, but be prepared to pay $50-125 per civilian if you go that route, on top of the price of admission. There is no "fast pass" for food and drink, and the heat this time of year means you're standing in the sun for an hour for a beer and some cheese fries - and you'll pay dearly. Service is extremely slow at most venues; apparently everyone on a register is underage and can't serve beer, so they'll run to the back for a manager. Vending machines charge $5/drink ($4.50/water). Some features are an additional charge, with a minimum number of participants (depending on park attendance?), for instance Dive Bomber Alley. That said, you will have a full day of fun here. I'd come back, but I'd be sure to check current prices, and I wouldn't return on a Saturday except under duress.
  • Fun rides for multiple ages. My kids enjoy it a lot. I wish there were more indoor options like shows. It gets hot and and taking a break indoors would be nice. Employees don't always seem super excited to be there. But overall, makes for a fun day.
  • I and my family members are season pass holders here and that being aid this place offers a great value for your money. I think if you were to only buy a one day ticket, food and drinks it would be a waste however. Great family outing but water rides close rather early, 6:45 one time and right at 7pm the other. Some food establishments are quick and friendly while others have a really long wait time.
  • Huge park campus, great variety of rides, attractions, games, food services. Assorted park, drink, parking packages available. Only downsides are the high cost of food, drink and gifts while in the park, and occasionally long lines for rides. Still, if you are considering a family or group vacation/trip, it's an awesome choice so long as finances are enough to reasonably accommodate. Located within .5-1 mile of several quality hotels and a diverse selection of restaurants. Vacations can be costly, but if you're willing to pay the cost then it's definitely a worthwhile experience.
  • Rides are great! We went on a Wednesday and the lines weren't too long... except to eat lunch. We waited in line for 30+ minutes to order. When you're waiting with hungry little kids, this is not cool. My aunt, who comes to Six Flags regularly, said this is an ongoing problem. A lot could be done to fix that with some better training and more kitchen workers. Aside from that we had a wonderful visit! Our youngest child, a 4 year old, was just over 42 inches and was able to go on a ton of rides.
