Park News - (9/29/18) I had not heard this myself, but it seems there was some flooding in the DFW area last week, where the river that passes by Six Flags over Texas rose up four feet and causes some flooding and damage in the park. I'm told that the Superman tower was among the rides damaged, so the planned roll-out of a VR experience on the Tower of Power over the Fright Fest season may have to wait a bit. A reader sent in a couple of pictures (removed) showing off a bit of the mess they were dealing with last week, but I'm told much of this has been cleaned up by now.
(9/10/18) A reader sent in a picture from the Superman tower ride at Six Flags over Texas where the park is installing some cabinets with roll-up doors that are expected to be put to use in the near future to add a VR experience to Superman: Tower of Power ride. With three towers possibly running at once on this attraction, they could opt to just put VR on one or two towers, and leave one running VR-free to help with the lines. If I had to guess, if they are adding a VR experience to the ride, it would likely be the Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom VR program that they've run on a few of the regular drop tower rides in the chain. For a good example, see the video below of how it looks when running on the Lex Luthor tower ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
2018 - Harley Quinn Spinsanity - (7/12/18) New video footage from the media preview of Harley Quinn Spinsanity at SFOT was released on Wednesday. Check it out below.
(8/31/17) A new thrilling and unique ride is coming to the park's villains area... Harley Quinn Spinsanity! This unique creation is like nothing you've ever seen in a theme park before, offering a spinning, twisting, looping gyroscope of motions. As you would expect, Harley Quinn will be located right next to her favorite villain, The Joker.
I'm not sure who is making this ride, but it looks a lot like that Tourbillion creation from ABC Rides, a one of a kind portable ride creation seen in a few fairs over in Asia in videos that went viral for awhile. Bravo to Six Flags for bringing this or a very similar ride style to the US market for what looks like an incredible new ride to the park's lineup.
2019 - Lone Star Revolution - (8/30/18) Six Flags over Texas will open the latest in a series of Larson Super Loop rides, this one being called Lone Star Revolution, which will stand 100 feet tall. It will send riders " back and forth propelling them head over heels through a series of 360° revolutions. The coaster changes direction halfway through the ride cycle; leaving riders suspended upside down at the top of the loop for even more intense thrills."
