Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^ I could be wrong, but I believe they started in 2007 when SFDK started as well.

 

EDIT: Holiday in the Park started in '07. Apparently they did "Lone Star Christmas" from 1994 to 1997.

 

When six flags took over management at SFFT, the event was also called Holiday in the Park just as it was at SFAW and SFFT. From what I remember, SFAW's Holiday in the Park was the first to get pulled, then SFFT got cut after that. Lone Star Christmas was used 94-95 before Six Flags took over management. I remember working the event in 96-97 and the crowds were never as big as they are now. Also, I thought HiP started back up in 08??? I just remember going while Goliath was under construction. I didn't recall them doing it the previous year in 07.

 

I also agree with Jake. The have done a great job making it into a larger event than what it used to be. I was really surprised at how large the crowd was on 12/23/12. I'd say my favorite lights are in Los Festivales and Spassburg.

Went today 12/31 to get my season pass processed. Because of the weather, I am guessing the employees outnumbered the people. Every ride had no wait except for a 2 train wait for the front of Goliath. The park closed at 5:30 due to inclement weather and they gave everyone a free voucher that expires on 1/6.

I don't know about in the winter, but I've been there in the summer, and most of the coasters were running single train operations; even during SOME busy days. The only coasters I can remember constantly getting multi-car/train operations were Big Spin, Rattler and S:KC.

^That looks great! It's gonna be a very intimidating drop with the curve action and going down to the canyon floor. I only rode that ride a couple times - in 1995 AFTER the changes - and the drop still was very effective. It had the curve action (right-left-right?) and really creeped over slowly; I have a fondness for coasters that creep over (SF Great America woodies are prime example); where I find most coaster geeks like a fast lift at the time. Slow lifts are very effective for creeping folks out and building up anticipation.

Yeh. It's for sure gonna be a great coaster. I didn't realize how crappy my picture was but that's what you get when you take a picture while you're driving and don't have the option to stop. Lol hopefully SFFT starts to post some more pics of the progress to their Facebook page.

This coaster is coming along great. I can not wait to ride it. I have no doubt that this coaster will win the best new ride of 2013 award. No doubt!

Keep in mind about the GTA's that they get horny about Cedar Point. I think Outlaw Run&Iron Rattler maybe better than Gatekeeper however it will probably still win because its at the Point.

Just because its at the Point does not mean that its automatically Best New Ride.

I'm planning on being there just after Memorial Day. My fingers crossed that it's open by then.

^ Oh I'm sure. I meant the coaster's opening day, whenever that is . lol

 

Oh haha....I get it. Yeh I can't wait for opening day as well. I was in San Antonio for the holiday and already got my season pass processed so I can use it at SFMM in the mean time.
