SIX FLAGS FIESTA TEXAS

icon_STOPPark News - (2/10/18) Six Flags Fiesta Texas will launch a brand new music festival at the park starting on March 3rd called Botanica that will run from 10am to 11pm. Rides and Music... what's not to like? Follow the link to the official event website to see the details and concert lineup.
    (1/24/18) Pictures taken during an off-season tour of Six Flags Fiesta Texas, including a tour of the Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster site, were posted to SFFT Source this week.
    (12/27/17) Oh no! Six Flags Fiesta Texas has announced that they will be closing down the Scooby-Doo Ghostblasters dark ride at the end of Jan. 7th, 2018... the last day of the park's Holiday In The Park. The good news is that the location "will become the future home to the latest dark ride innovation later in 2018." So at least we will have some kind of new dark ride experience coming to replace it sometime in 2018... but now I'm curious what this will be. Anyone know more?
    (12/12/17) A fun new video shows off the faboulous Holiday in the Park festivities taking place at Six Flags Fiesta Texas right now, as well as stopping by the Wonder Woman construction site for a peek at the coaster’s progress. Check it out below!

    (8/21/17) I'm not going to get into the what, where and why of this, but according to a news article posted here, Six Flags over Texas, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Six Flags over Georgia are changing their flag displays at the park entrances. In the case of the Texas parks, they will no longer put the traditional group of six flags over the Texas parks representing the six flags that have flown over Texas, which in addition to the US flag, include the flags of Spain, France, Mexico, The Republic of Texas and the Confederacy. As of now only the traditional US flag will be put on display in the parks, bringing an end to the very reason why Six Flags parks were called 'Six Flags' in the first place.

 

icon_STOP2018 - Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster - (2/9/18) Six Flags Fiesta Texas posted some amazing aerial drone-cam footage of the Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster construction site that you don’t want to miss. Check it out below!

    (1/21/18) While nothing is certain, I'm told that Six Flags Fiesta Texas is hoping that their new Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster may be ready to launch for guests during the park's season opening weekend, Feb. 24 - 25. No promises, as testing still has to take place, but if it is possible, they are said to be working towards that goal, or to open it soon after.
    (1/18/18) The highest piece of track on the Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster was installed the other day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. A quick video showing it was posted to Facebook.

    (12/13/17) A great collection of new Wonder Woman Golden Lasso coaster construction photos have been posted to SFFT Source this week. Follow the link to check them out.
    (12/1/17) A great collection of new construction photos of the Wonder Woman coaster were sent in by our friends at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, as the supports and now big sections of golden track are now in place.
    (11/15/17) Our friends at Six Flags Fiesta Texas have sent us a few new images showing off concept art of how some of the themeing for the new attraction area will look, as well as a new shot of the construction site, which is now stuffed with tall red supports awaiting track pieces.
    (11/9/17) Great news from Six Flags Fiesta Texas has just arrived, as Wonder Woman construction has now gone vertical. Check out two new pictures of the site sent in from Six Flags just a few hours ago.
    (11/6/17) An interesting video showing off a close up view of the prototype Raptor track system set up at the RMC HQ was posted this week. Below that is more of the same tour, but this time taken inside the RMC facility buildings where they create just about everything for these coasters in-house. This should give those fans eagerly awaiting Wonder Woman and Railblazer some fun insight into what they will experience in 2018.


    (10/6/17) Six Flags Fiesta Texas has sent out a picture showing off the first truckload of supports for the new Wonder Woman coaster arriving at the park.
    (9/27/17) Special thanks to Six Flags Fiesta Texas for sending us four new pictures of their Wonder Woman coaster under construction at the plant.
    (9/20/17) While this new picture is about a week old, it shows off the progress of the demolition being done to Power Surge at about the end of the first week. I imagine by now there is a good chance that the rest of the ride could be gone.
    (9/14/17) Six Flags Fiesta Texas sent us a great picture taken on Sept. 6th (a week ago) showing off the start of demolition on the park's Power Surge ride. According to the description, the total demolition of Power Surge was only expected to take one week, so if anyone goes by, I'd love to see a picture taken this week to see what's left, if anything.
    (8/7/17) According to new details Screamscape has obtained from Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the new Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster will feature a "3 train moving station" operation system in order to keep the line for the new coaster moving more quickly. Six Flags Fiesta Texas actually seems to have been are the forefront of the "moving station" initiative for the company, as this will be the 6th such system installed on a ride at the park to date. The five other attraction currently using "moving station" systems include Thunder Rapids, Scooby Doo, Pandemonium, Bugs White Water Rapids and the Gully Washer rapids ride.
    The park has also sent us a new infographic showing off the coaster's layout and features in detail.

 
    (8/3/17) In an interesting development, Six Flags Fiesta Texas seems to have broken ranks with the rest of the chain with a plan to announce their new 2018 attraction TODAY. While the park sent out word that a major announcement would be made inside the park at the entrance to the closed Power Surge ride today at 2pm, it appears as if USA Today were given an exclusive on the story and has already leaked the project as of this morning.
    As rumored on Screamscape, Fiesta Texas is getting the world’s first RMC Raptor Coaster which will be themed as the “Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster”, taking over the former site of the Power Surge water ride, not far from the Superman coaster. The new RMC Raptor style coaster will use a single-rail system that is just 15.5 inches wide, which is expected to provide an extremely smooth ride by eliminating entirely the bumping of a traditional coaster caused by slight variations in the width between the two rails. The single rail system will also allow for some pretty slick and extreme acrobatic maneuvers.
    The biggest problem with the ride is that the trains will only hold eight riders at a time, but hopefully they can try to compensate for this with faster loading and multi-train operation. Wonder Woman will have a 113 foot lift hill followed by a 100 foot tall 90 vertical drop, buzz through three inversions at a top speed of 52 mph. According to the article, the queue will feature some Greek style architecture along with a crashed airplane to go along with the comic book origins of Wonder Woman.
    Oh… and as to why Six Flags Fiesta Texas is announcing their new ride today instead of waiting until August 31st like the rest of the chain? If I had to guess, the rumors of a second Raptor coaster project going to the competition (Railblazer at California’s Great America) which is set to announce their own ride on August 16th was just cause for Six Flags to make Fiesta Texas’ announcement a few weeks early.
    Check out the animated video below, because this looks to be one heck of a ride! Congrats to everyone at RMC and Six Flags!

 

2018_DarkRideTeaser1

Mid 2018 - New Dark Ride - (12/29/17) According to the official word from Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the new dark ride attraction that will replace Scooby-Doo is planned to be up and running by Memorial Day Weekend. While an official name has not been dropped, they did say that “A new epic battle begins Memorial Day Weekend 2018! The new dark ride is a custom design / theme for Six Flags Fiesta Texas.” Six Flags was also kind to include a teaser image showing off what appears to be some sort of Pirate ship battle at sea. So all said and done, this looks to be a pretty dramatic upgrade to the park’s dark ride experience. I can’t wait to find out more.
    (12/27/17) Oh no! Six Flags Fiesta Texas has announced that they will be closing down the Scooby-Doo Ghostblasters dark ride at the end of Jan. 7th, 2018... the last day of the park's Holiday In The Park. The good news is that the location "will become the future home to the latest dark ride innovation later in 2018." So at least we will have some kind of new dark ride experience coming to replace it sometime in 2018... but now I'm curious what this will be. Anyone know more?
