News & Rumors

Six Flags Theme Parks






icon_STOPPark News - (10/2/22) While Dr. Diabolical’s Cliffhanger opened on July 30th, I was out in the middle of the ocean having a fun adventure on a cruise, so our good buddy Randal went down to Six Flags Fiesta Texas to take the new beast for a test run for us. Unfortunately, and entirely my fault, as I was on the cruise at the time, I totally forgot to post his amazing on-ride video of Six Flags’ first Dive Coaster, but you can see it now for the first time below! Overall, it looks to be an amazing ride with good pacing, plus you get an incredible view of the park from the top of the first drop when you are paused half-way over the edge. Now I’m just waiting

    (8/20/22) With all the negative reports about things being taken away or being less than what they should be at various Six Flags theme parks across the chain, it is an extremely welcome change to see a Six Flags theme park promoting the success of upgrade after upgrade taking place at their location. Six Flags Fiesta Texas is such a gem and this park has been promoting upgrades to their rides, shops, food and beverage options, theming and just general ways to improve guest comfort and the entire experience across the board repeatedly over the past few years.
    The spearhead of these improvements, as well as the public communication of them to the general public is none other than the Six Flags Fiesta Texas Park President, Jeffrey Siebert who takes direct responsibility for his park across social media. The park is now promoting the return of the parks’ Fright Fest (said to be bigger and better than ever) as well as the launch of an all new Oktoberfest celebration this fall. Stay tuned!


2023 - Park Improvements - (7/14/22) A video featuring Jeffrey Seibert, President of Six Flags Fiesta Texas at the Roller Coaster Rodeo event confirms a few interesting future projects for the park can be found below. I had not heard these before, but for starters he confirmed (at the 27 minute mark) that the park’s Boomerang coaster will get two new trains (I know it runs one at a time) next season featuring Vekoma’s current vest restraint system that has become quite popular, as it pretty much removes the possibility of headbanging. Other upgrades to the coaster apparently include a new magnetic braking system as well, which should all be added to the ride by next spring.
    Other good news is that the new third train that the park ordered for Iron Rattler will arrive soon and is slated to be ready to roll for guests sometime just before Fright Fest this fall, returning the ride to two train operations at last.
