They will renew. The only time where Six Flags won't renew is if they suddenly lost a TON of money and had to go out of business.



It won't happen. Lets move on.

SOOOO how is El Diablo? Is it testing?

They've renewed their management agreement every time the contract has been up in the past. It's unlikely they wouldn't and even more so in 2027/2028 since Six Flags has the option to buy out the ownership.

Haven't seen El Diablo testing, but I saw a photo taken earlier this week from outside the park of the lighting package being tested.

Lone Star Theater has just been demolished. This photo was taken by Sarah Blair of Texas Thrillseekers. Apparently, the flood waters did a lot of damage to this as well. I have a lot of fond memories of the old Chevy Show in this building, more recently it's been used for storage.


RIP Lone Star Theater

Unbelievable. The building turned 50 this year. It's odd the way the flood patterns have changed over the years. When I worked there in the mid-90s, the space between the theater and Gold River was the high ground where we moved the antique cars before a heavy rain. One building is gone and the other heavily damaged because of flooding. I honestly can't recall any of the shows from the theater, but I know that building had great A/C back in the day.

I heard they have installed brand new AC units on top of "THE CAVE" why would they do that if they are doing away with it?

We don't really know what's going on with Gold River right now. It's possible that an updated version of the ride will open sometime in the future.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I could probably email the park but i think i might get a more honest answer here. I am planning a trip to SFOT and i am trying to decide which tickets i shall buy but i was confused about something.. How much is a season pass regularly? It's the memorial day sale now and it is $79.99, it says i am saving 70% and it is usually $263.99. But everybody says it is always cheaper to buy the pass if you plan on going more than one day, but at $263.99 that wouldn't be the case when a single day is around $60-$80. I have a hard time believing that the season pass is ever actually $263.99. What is the deal? Thanks!

Anyone local to Six Flags Over Texas want to attend the media event for El Diablo on May 28th in the morning? Please email robbalvey@themeparkreview.com if you want to go! You would need to be able to take photos, video, post a trip report and be enthusiastic on camera!

Thank you!

The deal is they want to sell it for $80 and they want it to be massively on sale. I've never seen a SF season pass ever go into 3 figures.
