SFFT really sets the standard for the American Six Flags parks. The coasters, flume, S&S tower, and atmosphere are all pretty great. Awesome report!

Good plan, your smarter than you look. :lol:

From these shots it is hard to believe this is a Six Flags park, it looks great and makes me want to visit. Thanks for another rock solid and entertaining trip report.

Some questions, Did you sneak a peak at Aventure Pointe along the freeway between Houston and Galveston? Did you hit up the Space Center with its refurbished Mission Control in this 50th aniversary year of the moon landing? If you drove between Houston and San Antonio, did you forget or intentionally pass by ZDT's. That's a fun little coaster.

Great Pics. I just got back from Europe. We dud Port Aventura, Disneyland Paris, Europa, Phantasialand, Tivoli and Eftelinf but I can't find the enerfy to spend hours in reports yet.

I, too loved Boadwalk Bullet and Iron Shark. I hope the onwers plans to expand his Downtown Houston Aquarium with rides comes about one day.

One of the stated reasons for teplaceing the baseball stadium in Arlington was because of the excessive heat where even at 9pm in the summer it can be 95 degrees without any heat index to also contend with.

Great report! I echo your sentiments about SFFT. A great SF park.

Now make with the goods. I am curious of your impressions of my favorite RMC conversion.

Thanks!

I agree 100% this park looks way too nice to be a Six Flags. I really need to take Emily here to renew her faith in Six Flags as her experiences with the chain are SFNE, Great Escape, Darien Lake, and Discovery Kingdom.


Yeah, you owe her big time. Why not take her to La Ronde too and just complete the nexus of suck?

Wonder Woman is insane in the back, but the front is fantastic too if you like floater air.

did you get a lot of spins on Batman? since Fiesta's in the original, I've found it's a bit more "spinny" than the clones.

looking forwards to the rest, Bill.


Thanks, and sorry. I'll shoot you a message next time we come down. I'm hoping for a Holiday in the Park trip next year unless a certain park in Arlington decides to be a dick and build a water coaster to try to trick me into going to Texas in the summer again like an idiot.

Thanks!

cparkes92 wrote:SFFT definitely looks like a top tier Six Flags park

Absolutely. You won't believe it's a Six Flags.

ytterbiumanalyst wrote:Well, if you're going to have a cliffhanger, Fiesta Texas is the best place to do it! Glad you liked this park; it really is the best of the bunch (though I really like Great Adventure as well).


I can see the argument for Great Adventure because of their ridiculous ride lineup and huge safari. Fiesta Texas is just gorgeous though.

Awesome. I'd tell you to avoid June but since you used to live in Florida and now live in Buffalo I assume you're just immune to all weather.

I've never heard of it.

No. If we had an extra day it probably would have been spent in Houston doing something NASA related. I'm not a big NASA guy or anything but it seems like the thing to do while you're there.

ElvisLuv wrote:If you drove between Houston and San Antonio, did you forget or intentionally pass by ZDT's. That's a fun little coaster.


We left Galveston really late, so ZDT's was closed when we drove through that night. I'll get to that later in the report.

I've started it finally. Hopefully I'll have it up soon. Patience. This level of relentless mediocrity takes time. Not everyone can be Canobie Coaster. He's not human. He's just a trip report bot that Robb coded to help drive clicks to TPR.

You talked so highly of La Ronde that she will never go there. She realized something must be wrong if one of my "crazy coaster friends" wouldn't go there. :lol:

I’ll sleep well tonight knowing that I stopped someone from going to La Ronde. It’s nice to know that you’re making a difference in the world. :lol:
