Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

P. 278: Mardi Gras Festival 2021 details announced!

Recommended Posts

Wow, that is insane.

It almost looks unreal, seeing such a narrow track under you and the speed it whips through some of those elements.

Thinking a grand sized Texas trip is in order next year.

 

OH and now that RMC is in the steel game they will truly become unstoppable.

I kinda wish they would "rocky mountain treat" some terrible steel coasters...replace it with track like this.

(Im thinking you, Anaconda)

Park President Jeffrey Siebert has been sharing some wonderful pictures online! (I did mention to him I was going to post them here at TPR)

Now, Bill. . you have to search for the clinical term:  "Blueprints shaped like penis"

A friend of mine happen to be a job site this morning in San Antonio and I happen to tell him he should go ride the new coaster at Fiesta if he drives by. He just text me he’s about to ride for the 18th time, no one is at the park today.

I tried to look up the footprint on one of these rides and saw a figure of 250' x 75'... does anyone know if that is true? A Vekoma SLC has a footprint of about 360' x 154' and a Vekoma Boomerang has a footprint of 288' x 98 '. If the 250' x 75' figure is correct, this means these attractions have a smaller footprint than a Vekoma Boomerang... would seem a smart idea for Six Flags to just go around replacing their SLCs and/or boomerangs with these rides!

Yep, missed it by one week.

 

*sigh* Oh well...

I just rode it quite a bit during member previews and WOW!

 

This thing is straight up launching you out of your seat at times. There’s ejector air, laterals, weightlessness and intense G-forces. There’s blissful hangtime on the front seat at the drop and straight up ejector in the back. There’s not a single bad seat on this train.

It definitely packs a huge punch for such a small coaster!

 

RMC knocked it out of the park with this one!

And RMC's winning streak continues. There are a LOT of small parks out there that would benefit greatly from purchasing one of these. From what I understand they're pretty cheap because they require less supports/steel, and can be assembled in no time at all.

oh yeah, Season Pass is not long for this world, and i fully expect 2018 to be the last time being offered.
I was able to bump up my season pass to a membership at SFNE. While I couldn't get a refund, I was able to convert the amount I spent on the season pass into "Bugs Bucks," which is essentially their version of Disney Dollars.

I must have missed the whole season pass vs. membership discussion. Can someone explain the difference to me? When did memberships become a thing and what advantages does one have? I have a regular SF pass thru Great Adventure.

 

ETA: The new coaster looks awesome and I really hope a SF park near me gets one at some point! Lots of amazing rides all over the place are opening this season!

Six Flags outlines the benefits quite well on their website and even includes a comparative chart.

 

https://www.sixflags.com/newengland/store/membership

 

Basically the Gold Plus level is a Gold Season Pass with some extra in-park discounts and a special member-only entrance. Then the higher levels have additional in-park discounts plus a few other perks like skip-the-line tickets.

Same

 

We're just gonna have to find our way back up to Santa Clara at some point. I'm sure that will happen sooner than a return trip to San Antonio.

Thanks very much for the link and basic overview. I agree with Bert that the regular season pass is not long for this world and we'll all be forced to get memberships in the near future.

 

Wait... Doesn't the current season pass include season parking at all SF parks? Or did they get rid of that this year and you can only get free parking with a membership? If the latter, that really sucks.

Current passes, at Gold Level, include parking at all parks.

 

most of the sales they've been running on them have included bump up to Gold level (either Batman or Superman version)

So glad to hear it delivers! I know we've all been highly confident about these rides, but I'd been maintaining a miniscule bit of skepticism in case there was train weirdness, discomfort, unexpected taming, etc.

Color me shocked how fast it is still running with people on it. Looks absolutely insane. Super bummed I am pretty busy the next few weekends but will get down to San Antonio asap!

 

Keep the review coming guys!

Got a ride in on Golden Shower Coaster today.

Waited probably 25 minutes or so, starting around 4 when the Platinum/Gold+ time started.

 

This is a ridiculously intense ride that puts all it has on the table for the short amount of time it can.

Doesn't top IRat for best in the park, but as a coaster I'd say it beats S:KC out for second. As an experience, maybe not (due to the outstanding terrain usage on S:KC), but it's definitely my second favorite coaster in the park. You will not believe how out of control that first airtime hill is. Absolutely bonkers.

 

Not 100% where to rank it yet, but that doesn't matter that much anyway

Wonder Woman is absolutely bonkers. I can't believe a coaster this compact can sustain that kind of speed. Thanks to the restraints, you really get launched out of your seat on any element. This ride is hard to keep your hands up for because of how strong the airtime is.

 

Iron Rattler is still my favorite in the park, but this isn't too far behind and I'd even take it over El Toro. It's that great.
