Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

as I suspected. . . they are using the Flash Pass lane for those who want to "fly", Bill.

the fliers get into the harnesses in the "bullpen" staging area just before the ride loading.

here are some pics I took myself today - but no way, no how, was my fat ass getting in this set up.
(interestingly, they seem to have blocked off the sets of seats before each "hanging" section. . . I guess so once it's up to speed, there's no chance of "high-fiving" or touching, anyone in the seats in front.

I really wish they were doing this longer.  

OR....can someone whisper to Jeffrey this would be great for Coaster Rodeo?

I hope we see these pop up more places.  I'd love to give it a try.  Sky Coasters are tons of fun.  The new Fun Spot lay down swings were interesting enough.  I'm all for it.

Roller Coaster Rodeo attendees will get the 1st rides on Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger - they really don't need to do anything  more to sweeten THAT pot 😛

I'll be at the park on Saturday for Winterfest (where the Tx parks all present what's going to be coming in 2022 and beyond - this year is SFFT's turn to host). . so will make sure to take more pics of the progress!

Wait...I thought it was beyond vertical? Is this another Six Flags budget cut...or are they just behind schedule again...

no, I saw what he was doing.  but I ignored it because it was a "dad-joke". . so instead gave an update on the status.

 

edit:  didn't' mean that to come across harsh. . . puns and dad jokes just aren't really things I enjoy much . . . but i got it.

No worries Bert, everyone has their own tastes for humor! I just couldn't pass it up...

in the park yesterday for an event - where many parks presented their 2022 plans (and beyond) which was a lot of fun, and I'll get up a report on that at some point (hopefully). . . .tho we did manage to get two walk on rides to Iron Rattler Back Seat, Superman, and a walk on to DareDevilDive (which broke down for 10 minutes as we were about to get on it. . . .but once reset, we got a ride, and it *IS* now going back up to the top of the tower before it starts flipping the planes so yay for that).

Guess it paid to go to the park on a cold and overcast day - and everything was operating despite the weather and the light crowds, *except* for Poltergeist.

we were inside Zaragoza theater almost the entire operating day tho. . so didn't get to get into the park itself until ~4pm when it closed at 6. . and take out for the time watching the Parade (which was full on and fun, even with the light crowd due to weather), and a backstage tour of construction on Dr. Diabolical Cliffhanger.    So that's not a bad ride count considering we really only spent ~1 hour available to do "rides". . . . 

We got an hour after close to ride WonderWoman tho and taste lots of the MardiGras food offerings.


but. . what I think is some of the bigger news?   Skyscreamer is still offering the "Harness" option.  (it was supposed to only run for 3 weeks and be gone as of 1/6/22). 
I asked a few of the Mgmt folks on the construction tour, as I noticed the harnesses on it.    Most of them were cagey about it. . . "yeah, we're still offering it until we dont". . . but i did get someone to kind of admit that (and take this with a grain of salt, but it's from a horse's mouth, if not THE horse's mouth (ie: not from Park President):

"it will continue running for free as an option thru the end of this week" (which I guess means today), "and then will be offered as a pay option"


no idea how much it will cost, but I guess they have the infrastructure in place to support it as a paid option (separate line for it, and area to get in the harness). . i I suspect this will be a true statement.

so there ya go .

and to give you an idea of how crowds were yesterday ~4:30 pm:

post parade bert:
(and no you dirty minds. . I didn't have to show anything to get all these beads - it was too cold to anyways 😛 - but if you want lots of beads?  catch the parade on a day without much crowd. . every float will have folks tossing beads to you)

oh. . I mentioned Dr Diabolical's Cliffhanger construction tour and didn't supply pics?

ah.. you want those?   ok. . . 😛

they have already started construction, and the maintenance / transfer track is already starting to go in place.
