Six Flags Over Texas (SFOT) Discussion Thread

P.. 420: Pirates of Speelunker Cave announced for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Sundays are usually pretty good but it is spring break. I rode it last Saturday and due to the rain storms the park was empty. NTAG was a walk on. The red train seemed to run a bit faster than the black one. Both are running quite fast.

With the discussions lately in other threads of ride ops and the safety checks, I have always wondered, but never asked, what is up with the wood single wood block with the handle on it that the ride ops on Titan carry around?

If it fits between your lap and the lap bar you are too small to ride and they will not allow you to ride.

It's to check the distance of the lap bar to the train. If the block slides through no ridey if it can't be corrected (pushed down hard on while the guest sucks it in)

Gotcha. I guess I've never been in the station with people that small loaded up. I've never seen them actually use it. I just see them carrying it around. It makes sense now. Thanks.

It's not for the small it's for Larger Sized guests.

Out at Six Flags tonight and have noticed that the park has painted the outside of Texas Arena to a light orange color. I'm glad they did cause the old paint was peeling badly. I wonder why they did though. Maybe because it needed it, or do they have plans to re-open it one day. Wait and see I guess.

The Texas Skyscreamer stats it will open Summer 2013. The Georgia Skyscreamer will probably open first.

 

This is most likely due to the prevailing wind conditions in the D/FW area. Spring would be a lousy time to operate a 400ft tower swing in this area.

So what happens when you send a train and it doesn't come back? Well at SFOT you cover the train with a tarp and leave it there.

 

Yup, somehow the park managed to valley Giant yesterday morning. Whether it was the first drop or leading up to the brake run I couldn't tell for sure, but temps in the morning were around 40.

A couple years back, Mr. Freeze valleyed not long before we went to go ride, and since it was closed we decided to ride batman. It wasn't until we got up the lift I discovered the train had valleyed and was covered with a tarp.

 

How they valleyed NTAG, I don't know. That's just weird, weather conditions mut have been pretty bad.

I don't know why they didn't build the Mr Freeze evac platforms in STL, as it valleys every once in a while too and the people have to wait for a crew with a ladder to get them out, one by one.

Here is one without it covered. Sad to see it closed..

Also, No construction underway at the SkyScreamer. It may be because of the harsh weather conditions.. There was some heavy winds this past Sunday during my visit.

 

Several attractions were closed until the afternoon but they kept lines moving and wasn't a bad day to visit!
