Park News - (4/4/18) Six Flags announced on Twitter that the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Arlington waterpark will add Splashwater Beach for the 2018 season, a large new interactive water playground.
(3/17/18) Visit OverTexasThrills this week to take a look at the latest park updates and renovations happening at Six Flags over Texas. The coverage this week includes a look at the park's local "Spring Break" crowds, the new Texas Tacos restaurant, the new Coaster Candy store, Looney Tunes Mall refurbishment, the new Philly Cheesesteak restaurant preparing to open and more.
They've also got a nice write up that breaks down the benefits and costs of all the new Six Flags "Membership" levels introduced for the 2018 season over the regular Gold level: Platinum, Diamond and Diamond Elite.
(2/7/18) So what will become of the old Harley Quinn / Crazy Legs ride once removed? According to a new rumor, unless a better offer comes along from another park, Six Flags over Texas may just put it in storage, perform a little refurbishment work on it over the next couple years, and wait for the right time and space to become available elsewhere in the park for it to make a surprise return. Sounds good to me... you can never have enough Flat Rides.
In other park news, I'm told that the Boomtown Arcade has been torn down to make room for other future park improvements, and you wont be able to find Cold Stone ice cream this season either as their contract expired. Along the same lines, the days of Panda Express are also numbered, as Six Flags will likely turn it into their own "Chop Six" brand once their contract is up.
(1/21/18) Ever since Six Flags over Texas announced they were naming their new 2018 ride Harley Quinn Spinsanity there was a little bit of confusion, since the park already had a ride with that same name, an old Huss Troika previously known as Crazy Legs that was repainted and given that same Harley Quinn name in 2016.
This put the future of the old Troika ride in question, and while it is still listed on the park's website as being there even today, I'm told that the park is planning on removing it from service before the start of the 2018 season, which begins Feb. 24. No word on if it is being retired from service entirely, or if they plan on restoring it and sending it to another park.
(10/11/17) According to a source the new clearing being made at Six Flags over Texas is for a new central trash collection area and not for anything exciting.
(10/9/17) A curious new development has started to take place at Six Flags over Texas this week. According to photos sent in by a reader a new area in the park was being cleared just as you enter the France section, behind the All American Eats pavilion. Team members reported that they did not know what it was for, but it was just started over the past week.

(9/5/17) I've been wondering something... and I know many local Six Flags over Texas fans have been wondering the same thing as well. So far I have yet to get an answer, but when Six Flags over Texas announced that they would be adding the new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride for 2018 next to The Joker... this was a little bit of deja vu... because the park currently already has a ride named "Harley Quinn Spinsanity" right now, which you can see on their website here, which is a Huss Troika. It wasn't always named after Harley Quinn however, this was a switch done in 2016 along with a new paint job. Previously the ride was called Crazy Legs.
So with a brand new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride on the way for 2018, the question is what will become of the existing ride? Will it go back to being called Crazy Legs, will they call it something entirely new in 2018, or are their plans to remove it? Anyone know more?
2018 - Harley Quinn Spinsanity - (2/18/18) Good news from Six Flags over Texas, as a teaser tweet from the park shows that the first giant pieces of the new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride have arrived on-site and sitting in a storage lot behind Batman.
(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.
