Agreed as a nice ride, but the seats were so hard. It was a nice park really enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Can't wait to see more of the tr from the tour.

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years celebration! =)

It's a new year so that means it's time for another update from the Texas Midwest tour! This time we're at Six Flags Over Texas. I was really excited to check out this park for a few reasons, one major reason being Texas Sky Screamer. Another reason, was because I always played that level in RCT2 and I really wanted to see what the park was like in real life. Corny I know. :) Anyways, I remember this being the hottest day of the entire tour. At 9am it was already over 90 degrees and with humidity felt over 100. I remember looking at my phone at some point during the day and seeing that it felt like 116 degrees! Any who, on to the photos!

Hey girl!

The new hotness!

999725_10152113452714392_1443831738_n.jpg
A few minutes before the park opened for the day, A few people from SFOT walked us over to Mr. Freeze so we could get the first ride of the day! This was the first time I rode a coaster with an inverted tophat and man did I love it!

995953_10152113452304392_1311731898_n.jpg
After Mr. Freeze, we picked up our flash passes and walked over to Batman. This is a photo of the flash pass entrance for Batman. Honestly, I thought this was the strangest and sketchiest entrance to a ride i've ever been in. You walked behind the building and down what seemed to be a backstage area. It just felt weird.

1016950_10152113453189392_64691347_n.jpg
For some reason, every photo I have on the ride the tower is tilted... Is that because it really is or is it because I suck at taking photos? It's prob the second one. =p

Oh look, it's another Panda clone!

I was another first for me. Every time I've gone to SFMM, Sky Tower was closed, so I was really excited to finally get on one of these!

Artys shot.

Even at the top of the tower, Sky Screamer is still tilted.

Six Flags White Water looked like a pretty solid park.

1005757_10152113452074392_1740262858_n.jpg
La Vibora is such a pretty coaster. I really wish I had more photos of it.

1009936_10152113451744392_1406510925_n.jpg
So beautiful.

Nothing to see here. Moving on...

Hey Titan! After riding Goliath at SFMM, this was really nothing super exciting for me, but the extra helix was nice. =]

It's even prettier at night!

<3


Overall it was a really, really hot day at the park. So hot that we even took a break from the park and headed over to a second park along with spending some much needed time back at the hotel. While I did have fun, I feel like the extreme heat just made me have a miserable time at the park. Hopefully my next visit I won't be on the verge of passing out!

So I want to try something new and hear from you guys!

-Have you been to SFOT?
-If so, what did you think of the park?
-What did you like?
-What do you think could be improved?
-Favorite ride?

Please be sure to comment and let me know what you think!

Good morning everyone! I hope everyones well and enjoying the off season.

Today's trip report is from Summer Adventures at Fair Park is an awesome little place that is located at Dallas State Fair Grounds. We came here to escape SFOT for a little while and try to get a few extra credits, little did everyone know how awesome the place really was! As soon as we got walked though the turnstiles, we were greeted by a bunch of really friendly employees that leid us! It was a great way to set the mood for the chill atmosphere the park set. We only spent a few hours at the park, but let me tell you that it wasn't enough! This place has so many fun rides, some i've never even seen before and some old school ones. Anyway onto the photos!

Welcome to Summer Adventures!

988300_10152113603624392_1988211861_n.jpg
This was the very first thing I noticed when I entered the park and it was the first ride we did! I've been a site controller (To make it simple, I know a ton about them and i'm able to train team members how to safely operate them at SFNE) so I get to ride them for free! I love everything about them so seeing this was a pleasant surprise.

1002906_10152113604874392_609617642_n.jpg
The park had tons of these covered walk ways to try to keep guests cool on days like today.

399195_10152113604339392_94765312_n.jpg
They also had a few funky life sized games like this checker board!

18704_10152113603949392_1463358119_n.jpg
They also had Windstorm. Now what I thought made this ride so fun was when we got into the station, the operator asks, Do you want the normal ride or do you want to go into the underwater tunnel? Since we were curious about what he meant by that, we said underwater tunnel. As the ride cycled and came by the station, the operator would spray us with a hose! It really made for a fun, unique experience.

1098125_10152113603824392_1549037706_n.jpg
Also the coaster had that awesome drop about half way into the ride!

543796_10152113605069392_358017219_n.jpg
Oh they also had a 500ft observation tower!

Such a pretty little park. =]

Hey Dallas!

481107_10152113604639392_1008809211_n.jpg
The park had some really cool flats like this one!

1378_10152113984954392_1278341323_n.jpg
After our ride on the observation tower, the park closed for the day. But that meant its time for the Florider ERT and Dinner! Here's a photo of me busting my butt on my first ever attempt riding one of these things!


Overall I had a great time at the park. The park went well out of their way to make sure that we were as happy as could be. A big thank you to everyone at the park for your wonderful hospitality! I can't wait to head back there soon!

So have you guys been to the park before?
What did you think of it?
Is it really different when the state fair is going on? If so how?

Thanks for reading everyone. I hope you enjoyed the report!

Please make sure to comment down below letting me know what you thought of the report and of the park!

^ When I lived in Dallas - the Fair Park was only open when the Fair was in town. Love to see what they have done with the place! Looks awesome.

As far as SFoT - the last time I was there, Texas Giant - or Old Texas Giant - or OTAG - was still new in its original form (what an AWESOME ride that was when it was new.) I absolutely loved SFoT at the time and thought it was a great park.

^Glad to know that Fair Park being open during non fair times is a semi recent thing then. Lets hope they start getting some awesome rides in the near future. I feel like a nice medium sized wooden coaster would do wonders for the parks attendance. When we were there the park was dead!

I wish I had the chance to ride OTAG... Better yet, I wish I had the chance to ride any TAG.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

I've always wanted to ride one of those windstorm rides because of that crazy mid-ride drop! Nice little park, with an adorable little log flume! Reminds me of Silverwood's flume.
