Park News - (2/7/19) Screamscape sources have confirmed that the former Panda Express at Six Flags over Texas is now gone and will be replaced by an Six Flags’ branded Chop Six restaurant. In other news, I’m hearing that the park has been having some motor issues with their Riddler ride, so it may be down for a bit while they search for a solution.
(1/8/19) I’ve been told that Six Flags over Texas has purchased one of the former trains from Batman & Robin: The Chiller. In this case, it seems they bought one of the red “Robin” side trains, with the overall goal being to repaint and refurbish this train eventually and use it as spare train for Mr. Freeze, which will allow Freeze to continue to run with two-train operations all season long.
(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.
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 - El Diablo /
Lone Star Revolution - (1/25/19) Surprise! Remember how we all thought El Diablo, the Larson Giant Loop that was just removed from Six Flags Great Adventure, was heading north to Canada at La Ronde? Six Flags surprised us all this week with the announcement that El Diablo is actually going to Six Flags over Texas where it will open in Spring 2019 near the front of the park in the Spain section of the park.
The really odd thing however is that the park did announce that they would be getting a Larson Giant Loop for 2019 back in August… only they were calling it the Lone Star Revolution. I’m guessing they had a change of heart for the location of the ride and opted to change the location and theme at the same time, which is fine with me.
Now, to be honest here, technically the actual ride removed from the New Jersey park was reported as being shipped to La Ronde where it will reopen as Chaos… so the ride coming to SFOT should be a brand new unit, but reviving the old name and if they are lucky, maybe the’ll get the cool demon statue they had at SFGAdv in front of the ride that goes along with the logo.
(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."
