Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington

3.8
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.

  • I love coming to Six Flags! We got a season pass and come quite frequently. We almost always have a great time! The rides are awesome, food is yummy (though expensive), and it's a great place to make friends! Took a star off because most employees just don't seem to care. It is a treat when you're greeted enthusiastically and are quickly and kindly served. Most employees have responded with "I dunno" when asked the simplest of questions, like "Where is the nearest restroom?". I'd say, on average, 1 in 4 employees are knowledgeable about their work environment/park layout and 1 in 8 employees are kind and helpful and help provide a pleasant park experience. It's kinda what you get when you mainly employ teens who don't really care about anything other than doing bare minimum and getting paid. My only other complaints are the prices of, well everything, and the fact that we (and many others) had trouble after buying a 2 park season pass. (When we went to hurricane harbor, they said we only had a six flags pass, even though we paid for the 2 park pass- had to wait 2 hours to get in the park). I understand I should expect to pay a pretty penny when coming to an amusement park, but I don't want to be price gouged from the moment I pay for parking, to the minute I walk out of the park. Thank God we spent $200 and got a season pass with free parking and discounts on food as well as bought a $30 refillable six flags cup (which a park employee tried to steal -problem was rectified by mgmt though), otherwise we wouldn't come here, what with entry fees being $75 per person ($60 ticket, $10 processing fee, $5 taxes.)
  • What can I say, most people love amusement parks. I’m not a roller coaster gal, but I go with the family anyway. We first went to six flags because our daughter was performing there. I love that Six Flags showcases local talent. It’s fun to walk through the park and hear different kids of music! We ended up getting season passes, which is nice because we can go for a little while without feeling pushed to do everything in one day. We’ve been to Holiday in the Park which was super fun. Some days it’s really busy and, without a fast pass, 90% your day will be spent standing in line. That’s just how it is at amusement parks now days- so get the fast pass if you want to ride more than one or two things on a busy day. Overall Six Flags is clean. They have lots of friendly staff, ready to help if you need anything and the park offers a lot of different options for the whole fam. It’s easy to get to and parking is simple. AND they offer a bunch of options for season passes. Five Stars Six Flags
  • We love to go to Six Flags over Texas. These are the roller coasters I’ve grown up with and they’re still my favorite to this day. I have never bought their season passes, but I was intrigued when I saw their membership deal. For $6.99 a month (if you buy it for 4+ people which I did) it is totally worth it. If you go even twice you are getting your money’s worth. Also if you get the membership you don’t feel the need to do everything in one day because you can always come back. We like to come to the park early and get closer parking so that we can leave the park and eat lunches we packed at their picnic area. Saves us a lot of money and gives us a break from the sun. Staff is always friendly and willing to answer questions. Thanks for always being awesome!
  • I visited with a friend from out of the country, we where there about an hour when it started to rain. We checked the forecast for that day and no rain was planned. But this is Texas after all. So they closed the rides and shut it down. Now we spent $127 just to get in and got on 2 rides. They don't offer refunds or rain checks for daily passes. I was very disappointed in this. They could have done something for us. Sorry to say will not be back again.
  • I came here today with the kids. This whole area is a great location to have a day visit. We bought meal tickets for the day that were about $40 bucks for unlimited drinks, lunch, dinner, and a snack. The entry was about $85 per person, a bit less if you bought a three day advance ticket. If you're counting on being able to park at the lot on site, then that's about another $30 for one vehicle. So it would be good to gather all family members and friends into the family bus for the ride down in the morning to ensure that you can ride everything at least once before the bulk of the crowd arrives. It was a pretty time for the adults, but the kids were having a great time. They were wiped out by 5pm and we arrived at opening time of 10:30am.
