The park sent out an email update about Texas Skyscreamer. Some interesting stats/technical details in there too. Sounds like vertical progress will start in early Spring so a Memorial Day opening isn't outside the realms of possibility.

Big changes are coming to the largest water park in North Texas! The 2013 season at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor will be even Bigger, Better and Wetter with the debut of two thrilling new slides – Typhoon Twister and Tsunami Surge. Scheduled to open in early summer, these two new epic rides will beckon guests of all ages to take the ultimate plunge.

On Typhoon Twister, guests board slides built for two for an adrenaline-packed ride down a tunnel and into a bowl-shaped slide. After spinning around multiple times in the belly of the slide, riders are thrust through a corkscrew exit into a refreshing splash pool. Tsunami Surge sends couples twisting and turning down a 68-foot enclosed tunnel while they build up speed to take on a 40-foot wave slide on the other side. Guests experience zero-gravity as they surge to the top of the slide before gliding down to the landing pool. Typhoon Twister and Tsunami Surge are built by PROSLIDE Technology, Inc.

To celebrate the announcement of the park’s two new rides, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is hosting a Polar Plunge Wedding on Thursday, February 14 at 11:00 a.m. Four couples are taking the ceremonial “plunge” before taking the ultimate plunge into the park’s wave pool. Two of the couples will get married, while the other two will renew their vows. After the ceremony and polar plunge, a reception, complete with a first dance, cake cutting, and a bouquet and garter toss will take place.

Six Flags Hurricane Harbor opens for the 2013 season on May 11, 2013.

(2/5/13) I’ve been sent some rumored new entertainment updates for Six Flags over Texas in 2013. From what I’m told the Lonestar Theater will either see a new Looney Tunes themed show, or an updated version of the old Looney Tunes Dance Off show. A new unknown show will be added to the park’s Crazy Horse Saloon along with a new Country music themed show in the Majestic Theater. The “iLuminate" show will not return in 2013 however, and I’ve been told to expect to see the return of the Chart Topper show (or something similar with a new name) take over the Southern Palace theater. -SCREAMSCAPE.



Wow sounds like a big year for over Texas! TSS, looks to me like 4 new shows or updated versions, and the rumored return of Adventure Theater this summer! I'm excited!

Road to Six Flags is getting a much needed pavement rehab. Or replacement. Whatever you call it, it's about time.

So yeah. With the weather kicking some serious niceness butt, it's a shame the park hasn't been open the last month. Ah well, only 4 more weeks.
