SIX FLAGS FIESTA TEXAS

Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (3/24/14) Six Flags Fiesta Texas has confirmed that their Sky Screamer attraction will run backwards for a limited time this Spring: from now through to May 26th.
(3/12/14) Cold and nasty weather was to blame for stalling out one of the coaster cars on Pandemonium at Six Flags Fiesta Texas over the weekend. Local fire crews arrived on site and took about 46 minutes to evacuated the two passengers from the coaster car that had stopped in mid-ride on Saturday. Pandemonium has since been re-inspected and has re-opened.
(2/14/14) Our friends at Six Flags Fiesta Texas report that the park will offer a variety of new healthier food items this season. The new list of healthy choice food items includes: Veggie Pizza & Grilled Chicken Salad at Primo’s Pizzeria, Turkey & Chicken plates at Old Blue’s BBQ, Bunless Burgers, Grilled Chicken BLT and Veggie Burgers at Pete’s Eats and Bubba’s Café, Gluten Free Pizza and much more.
(8/15/13) Good news for Texas coaster fans… Iron Rattler reopened on Wednesday afternoon and now features seat-belts as an extra piece of safety equipment. You can find a few pictures of the new belts posted over at TPR.
2014 - Bahama Blaster - (4/4/14) Six Flags Fiesta Texas tweeted out a picture a few hours ago showing off several of the new slide tube pieces awaiting final assembly for Bahama Blaster.
(3/6/14) Six Flags Fiesta Texas has sent us a few pictures of their new Bahama Blasters slide parts that have arrived from ProSlide this week, along with a picture of the construction site.
(1/20/14) A detailed new graphic showing off the new Bahama Blaster coming to Six Flags Fiesta Texas in 2014 was sent in by Six Flags. Check it out!
(8/29/13) Six Flags Fiesta Texas will add Bahama Blaster to their waterpark in 2014. The new slide tower will feature four all new waterslides trap-door free-fall slides where you start off by entering into a drop pod at the top of a six-story tower.
According to the press release, “Launch programming may be varied so that all riders launch at the same moment, or in sequence.” (I LIKE!!!)
The four slides sit side-by-side, but two are straight down drops while the other two will drop you into an enclosed spiral before you splash-down. The slides will also feature semi-clear tubes allowing spectators below to watch the sliders above as they fall.
“Bahama Blaster is the thrilling centerpiece of an entirely new tropically themed White Water Bay expansion for 2014. We will also be announcing additional new water park attractions and guest amenities in the months ahead,” said park president Martin Bozer. “This year, the Iron Rattler hybrid roller coaster reset the bar for epic thrills. This extreme White Water Bay addition will further define Six Flags Fiesta Texas as the region’s premier vacation destination.”
(8/21/13) Six Flags Fiesta Texas has continued to use the work “eXtreme” along with the hashtag #eXtreme14 in their teasers lately. One reader was quick to point out that the only place the park has already used the term “eXtreme” in that fashion was in the headline for a promotional article from April 2013 that talked about the opening of the White Water Bay eXtreme waterpark for the 2013 season.
If we take that as a hint, we could be adding a major new addition or two come to the waterpark in 2014. However another tweet that came out earlier today may be of interest. “TO the B walk! #oops said to much. #eXtreme14 RT for other clues! ;-)” So with a reference to the Boardwalk area of the park, perhaps a new ride may be on the way to the park after all… or perhaps both.
(8/19/13) According to the SFFT Facebook page, “New eXtreme thrills coming in 2014!” along with a picture of an empty grass field. The capital X in extreme was don’t on purpose obviously, so is there a chance SFFT may be thinking about their own X-Flight coaster or is something else X-treme in the works? While I’d love to think so, the park did just open Iron Rattler a few months ago, which means that a large new coaster is unlikely. I’m a bit unsure myself as to what the future may hold… any other ideas?
???? - Future Attraction Concept Surveys - (4/15/14) New options being tossed around in a guest survey for Six Flags Fiesta Texas include a new healthy food restaurant option called “A Fresh Ride”, and a rather odd concept of a “Game Pass” program, where passholders would pay an additional $39.99 per season in exchange to being allowed to play up to four midway games per park visit.
Other concepts pitched include a virtual reality station where you would put on headgear and go for a fake ride, a Chinese Lantern Festival (similar to the one pitched in a SFOG survey), and a new concept called Superhero Training which would involve entering superhero themed fun-house environment to determine your powers, then into the Cavern of Justice to train, get your costume and then get put through an obstacle course.
