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.

SPRING BREAK (MARCH)

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 Karoake. So grab a friend or two – you might need them when the coaster drops.

JULY 4TH FEST (JULY 2 – 4)

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 joy ride and get your adrenaline fix on Pandemonium. Spend time with family and friends over funnel cake and barbeque until the sun goes down then end the night on the Silver Star Carousel as the night sky illuminates with bursts of red, white and blue.

FRIGHT FEST (OCTOBER)

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.

HOLIDAY IN THE PARK (NOV. 16 – DEC. 31)

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.

TIME SAVING TIPS

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.

SIX FLAGS WITH KIDS

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 Chapparal 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.
