Park News - (8/9/16) Six Flags is adding even more VR Coaster experiences to their parks with the announcement of a "Rage of the Gargoyles" experience coming to The Demon at Six Flags Great America and to Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Look for this new experience to open sometime in September to go with Fright Fest at Discovery Kingdom, but it will kick off on August 13th at SFGAm.
Six More coasters at other Six Flags parks will also launch the same VR Coaster experience, though I haven't been able to uncover the entire list yet. So far I've also found that Skull Mountain at SFGAdv and it is expected to replace all of "The New Revolution" experiences that have already opened at other Six Flags parks which would be SFOG on Dare Devil Dive Coaster, SFMM on Revolution at La Ronde on Goliath, SFOT on Shockwave.
2016 - The Villains Arrive - (6/3/16) A fun collection of photos and video clips from Six Flags over Texas showing off the three new villain themed flat rides in action have been posted to CoasterChitChat.
(5/23/16) I've been told that Six Flags over Texas is planning to open the new Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip and Harley Quinn Spinsanity rides this Saturday, May 28th. There will be a gold passholder preview event on May 26th however, and a general passholder preview on May 27th.
(4/28/16) CoasterChitChat has posted an update on the new rides coming to Six Flags over Texas. While there has been no opening date posted, it seems that Catwoman Whip has begun testing at least.
(2/24/16) Quick update, I'm told that the pictures SFOT posted showing the Catwoman ride pieces and at the end showing it assembled were actually shot at the plant, and not at the park. Apparently the ride still has not arrived on site in Texas yet at all.
(2/5/16) A quick update from a SFOT spy this week reports that while a crane is on site at the park, it was actually doing some work over at the Skycoaster (cable change) and inspection work on the park's YoYo. Meanwhile I'm told that the footers for the new rides are about done, but not quite ready yet to set up the new rides.
(2/3/16) According to a local reader, the old bumper car building at Six Flags over Texas was removed over the winter holiday season to make way for two of the park's new rides. Cranes are now in place to begin the placement of Riddler Revenge and Catwoman Whip.
(9/7/15) One item on the three "new" rides announced for Six Flags over Texas in 2016. Locals tell me that the announced Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride will actually just be a rethemeing of the park's existing Crazy Legs flat ride.
(9/3/15) Three new Villain themed attractions arrive at the park in 2016.
Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip and Harley Quinn Spinsanity.
2017 - The Joker - (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.
