Miracleman Posted June 10, 2012 Share Posted June 10, 2012 (edited) On June 4, I visited Six Flags Over Texas armed with my new camera and it was one of my best trips yet. Lines were minimal, It wasn't too hot (for Texas), and the Oil Derrick Observation Tower was open. I'm not going to go into great detail about the park here (as I'm sure many are already familiar with the OG Six Flags) However, there is one bit of rather distressing news for long time Six Flags Over Texas visitors. They changed the Pink Things!!! The Good: Pink Things are now only $1. The Bad: They are no longer the conical treats, but rather cylindrical push pop style things in a cardboard tube. The Ugly: They are no longer cherry, but cotton candy flavored. I was honestly too disgusted to even take a picture of the new "treat". Apparently, Six Flags switched vendors from Blue Bell (who make good frozen treats) to Nestle (who make cotton candy flavored goo). This didn't ruin an otherwise great visit, but I still often wonder about the people that make such decisions at Six Flags. Anyhow, on to the pictures: Here we are. at Six Flags over Texas. What to ride first, decisions, decisions. Seriously, Runaway Mine train is fun. Where are we again? Oh yeah, France. Look, I can see the Eiffel Tower from France. Did you know Ms. Pacman was French? A Cannon shot with a Nikon. (Photography humor). The Runaway Mountain sign was misting. It was a better ride today than I could remember, and it was a walk on. I see you there peeking over the trees, calling to me. I'll get to you later. Sadly flume one was closed. The signs looked good though. I think they repainted since last year. The best part about New Texas Giant is when the trees eat you. Edited June 10, 2012 by Miracleman Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
