Park News - (11/24/16) The last couple photos in an update posted to SFOT Source actually show off the demolition of the small retail center located next to the park, to the right of the Batman coaster. Nice to finally see this area put to use for the park at last.
A second update also shows off about 50 pictures taken at the Holiday In The Park event this year.
(10/10/16) A quick video review of Fright Fest at Six Flags over Texas was posted by Midway Mayhem this week. Check it out.
2017 - The Joker & Possibly One Other - (1/18/17) A quick construction update for The Joker at Six Flags over Texas has been posted to the Coaster Nation Facebook page. Looking like they've got about half of the new coaster up currently.
(12/22/16) SFOTSource takes a look at the construction progress on The Joker coaster going up at Six Flags over Texas this month. Check it out.
(12/1/16) CoasterChitChat has posted a new construction update for The Joker at Six Flags over Texas this week. They also suspect that the park is planning an additional attraction for 2017 that will go on the site of the mini-mall that is now being demolished.
What could it be? If I had to guess... I'd say a Sling Shot or some other kind of high profile upcharge ride could be planned for that space. If memory serves, I know the park has a Skycoaster, but I don't think they have a sling shot. (If I'm wrong, please tell me)

(9/1/16) It's official, as rumored The Joker (an S&S FreeFly 4D0) coaster is coming to Six Flags over Texas. Check out the video below.
(9/1/16) I’m told that Six Flags will be installing three Joker clones (S&S Freefly 4D coasters) in the chain this season, with the new coasters going to Six Flags Great America, Six Flags New England and Six Flags over Texas.
(8/15/16) According to another source the excitement over the permit for "Bumper Cars" is premature. The permit was actually filed back in December 2015 and was apparently to allow for the demolition of the building on the Bumper Cars site which was replaced by Catwoman Whip.
That said... I'm hearing that the park may finally add a new coaster in 2017... though it is a odd choice to me, because if the rumor is true they are adding the same coaster that SF Fiesta Texas added last year: an S&S 4D FreeFly coaster. As of right now, I have no idea where in the park they are thinking about placing it, or if it will use a Batman related character theme like the first two did.
(8/13/16) According to this link Six Flags over Texas has a building permit good through the end of the year to build a new "Bumper Cars" structure somewhere in the park. The old one was removed to make room for one of this year's new rides. I'm curious if these will be new bumper cars or if the park will inherit the cars jump removed from Six Flags over Georgia.
