Trills and Thrills

Just a short drive from Dallas and a guaranteed good time for all ages. Located in Arlington, Texas, the amusement park makes for a worthy day trip from Dallas. Here are some of our favorite times to visit and best tips for navigating Six Flags Over Texas.


Whether you’re in need of a break for the books or a family adventure, Spring Break at Six Flags makes for the perfect outing. There’s no better way to enjoy the spring weather and sights than when you’re lifted 400 feet into the sky. Enjoy heart-racing rides, indulge in mouthwatering bites, rock out to live and local bands and let loose in the Spring Break Lip Sync Challenge and Six Flags Karaoke. Grab a friend or two – you might need them when the coaster drops.


Celebrate Independence Day at Six Flags with world-class coasters, live music and a spectacular display of fireworks. Hit the Six Flags Speedway Go Karts for a joyride and get your adrenaline fix on Pandemonium. Spend time with family and friends over funnel cake and barbeque until the sun goes down, and then end the night on the Silver Star Carousel as the night sky illuminates with bursts of red, white and blue.


Promising thrills by day and frights by night, Fright Fest is a scare-tastic experience. The spooky month-long transformation includes haunted houses, blood-curdling attractions, scare zones and scream-inducing rides in the dark! Plan your visit in advance to make the most of your trip to the scream park, and make sure you’re wearing a comfortable pair of running shoes.


Six Flags Over Texas is one of the few Six Flag locations in the country that transforms into a winter wonderland during the holidays with decorative trees, strolling carolers, seasonal foods and drinks and festive entertainment. Check out the millions of dazzling holiday lights at the top of SUPERMAN before taking an exhilarating freefall. Take a family photo with Santa and enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate. Holiday in the Park is the perfect place for adrenaline junkies to also enjoy the season and possibly create a new holiday tradition with family.


Be sure to plan your trip in advance and buy your tickets online. Pack light so you can pass through the security check more quickly (you might want to pack your things in a waterproof bag if you plan on getting on water rides). Take a picture of your parking spot so you won’t waste time looking for your car when it’s time to go. Arrive just before or at opening time to grab a good parking spot, avoid long lines and have first dibs on the best attractions. When taking a break between rides, save time and skip the line by ordering your food at the new self-order kiosks. And carry a map with you so you won’t get lost as you navigate the park.


Tiny thrill seekers will enjoy Bugs Bunny Boomtown with tons of kid-friendly rides, attractions and entertainment. Scout out a snack or your next adventure on a scenic tour around the park on the Chaparral Antique Cars and gather the family and embark on a wet wilderness adventure on the Roaring Rapids. We want to make sure you have a good time too, so don’t forget to bring another adult along to help you keep track of the kiddos and “parent swap” so you can get your thrills in too.


Not an adrenaline junkie? Don’t worry, Six Flags still has plenty other activities to enjoy. There are multiple dining options, from piping hot pizza and all-American burger to tasty Asian cuisine and gluten-free dishes, for you to thrill your taste buds. Additionally, you can enjoy live music, which is offered daily inside the David Blackburn Southern Palace for you to rock out when you want to take a break from the coasters.


Six Flags always has new thrills to get your adrenaline fix. Take a ride on the new El Diablo, a super-sized loop that runs back and forth until you’re 100 feet in the air. Or check out the Harley Quinn Spinsanity – a first of its kind ride with unexpected and unpredictable flips from up to seven stories above ground. Whatever you’re looking for to get your adrenaline pumping, Six Flags has got you covered.
