Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

P. 288: New B&M Dive Machine Announced!

Recommended Posts

Thinking of doing a relatively last minute trip possibly to SFFT next week. Any idea what it's normally like? Should expect the park to be jammed with last thrill of the summer park goers before schools start back or is it very light?

From my experience last year around that time on a Tuesday, it was the slowest I’ve seen it. I’ll be going this week and I’ll try to report back to you on the crowds.

Which day are you going? You should be fine, especially if you can go during the week. The weekend right before school starts was very busy last year but I think there are still a few weeks before.

Went yesterday and the park was not bad but more busy than some of the days I've been this summer... Do not go on a Saturday... I repeat... Do not go on a Saturday

I was wondering about crowds as well. I'm taking my fiance on a trip to Texas for her birthday and we're going to do SFFT for a day. I'm planning on the Wednesday the week following schools going back. Should I still anticipate purchasing the Flash Pass? I have never used one before and am not entirely clear on the different levels (gold, platinum, etc.). I'm so excited to take her since neither of us have ever been to the park before! I'm sure it goes without saying that we should be also bring a bathing suit, too?

If it's a Wednesday and there's no BAFF, then don't worry about Flash Pass unless you get there and it's slammed for some reason. It'll be dead enough to do whatever, unless you want to marathon Wonder Woman. The waterpark is quite fun and there's a good amount of things to do there, so if you like water parks then that's definitely something to check out.

If you're in the area and want to check out another fun place, ZDT's is an hour away from SFFT and their "last 3 hours" unlimited wristband is only $15. Switchback is a seriously solid coaster, the go karts are pretty fun, and generally the whole little place is a really fun way to kill a few hours. (Last 3 hours arcade is probably one of the best deals I've ever seen on any arcade ever)

I should also mention that if going late in the day doesn't fit your schedule, they gladly sold us $5 tickets just to ride Switchback even though that wasn't advertised on their website. Your mileage may vary on that though.

Is Wonder Woman off of single use now? When we were there in June you could only reserve it one time on all levels with a Flash Pass.

Not even surprised. ZDT's is awesome that way.

I'm not actually sure. I've heard that you can get both of the Diamond Elite one-time flash pass uses on WW for a visit, but I don't know if that carried over to the normal Flash Passes or not. The website doesn't appear to have anything about it so it's probably still single use. Knowing Six Flags, who knows what it'll be on any given day

I had totally forgotten that they do this with some rides. I was thinking of taking a trip to SFOT and SFFT sometime this fall or during HITP but was hoping for multiple re-rides on Wonder Woman after how much fun Railblazer was. Bummer. At least it can be used on the other great rides at this park.

 

Not to start a war between Flash Pass and Fast Lane but this is one reason I prefer Fast Lane. I got 18 rides on Steel Vengeance over a couple days at CP in June...

Hey, y'all! I might be in San Antonio for Thanksgiving, so I'll probably sneak in a visit to SFFT, if that's the case. Has anybody gone during that week? How bad do crowds typically get? I'm willing to get Flash Pass for myself, if necessary, but I'll probably have some relatives tagging along who will not want to pay for FP.

Any recommendations for food inside the park for lunch? And as a follow-up, any recommendations outside the park for supper? I'm so stoked to be going for the first time next week so I'm trying to plan out some of the day!

 

I am currently eating a beef brisket sandwich and side of Mac n cheese at the Sangerfest Halle Food Court. The brisket is a little dry (I didn't add BBQ sauce), but the Mac n cheese is excellent, very cheesy.

This is the exact same thing I usually get. The sandwich is pretty decent for Six Flags food with BBQ sauce.
