Park News - (9/10/18) A reader sent in a picture from the Superman tower ride at Six Flags over Texas where the park is installing some cabinets with roll-up doors that are expected to be put to use in the near future to add a VR experience to Superman: Tower of Power ride. With three towers possibly running at once on this attraction, they could opt to just put VR on one or two towers, and leave one running VR-free to help with the lines. If I had to guess, if they are adding a VR experience to the ride, it would likely be the Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom VR program that they've run on a few of the regular drop tower rides in the chain. For a good example, see the video below of how it looks when running on the Lex Luthor tower ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
(5/19/18) A quick update about various other projects taking place at Six Flags over Texas, such as a Gotham Chicken Restaurant and repainting of the Oil Derrick and some work taking place to Aquaman have been posted to Over Texas Thrills this week.
(4/4/18) Six Flags announced on Twitter that the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Arlington waterpark will add Splashwater Beach for the 2018 season, a large new interactive water playground.
(2/7/18) So what will become of the old Harley Quinn / Crazy Legs ride once removed? According to a new rumor, unless a better offer comes along from another park, Six Flags over Texas may just put it in storage, perform a little refurbishment work on it over the next couple years, and wait for the right time and space to become available elsewhere in the park for it to make a surprise return. Sounds good to me... you can never have enough Flat Rides.
In other park news, I'm told that the Boomtown Arcade has been torn down to make room for other future park improvements, and you wont be able to find Cold Stone ice cream this season either as their contract expired. Along the same lines, the days of Panda Express are also numbered, as Six Flags will likely turn it into their own "Chop Six" brand once their contract is up.
2018 - Harley Quinn Spinsanity - (7/12/18) New video footage from the media preview of Harley Quinn Spinsanity at SFOT was released on Wednesday. Check it out below.

(2/18/18) Good news from Six Flags over Texas, as a teaser tweet from the park shows that the first giant pieces of the new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride have arrived on-site and sitting in a storage lot behind Batman.
(8/31/17) A new thrilling and unique ride is coming to the park's villains area... Harley Quinn Spinsanity! This unique creation is like nothing you've ever seen in a theme park before, offering a spinning, twisting, looping gyroscope of motions. As you would expect, Harley Quinn will be located right next to her favorite villain, The Joker.
I'm not sure who is making this ride, but it looks a lot like that Tourbillion creation from ABC Rides, a one of a kind portable ride creation seen in a few fairs over in Asia in videos that went viral for awhile. Bravo to Six Flags for bringing this or a very similar ride style to the US market for what looks like an incredible new ride to the park's lineup.
2019 - Lone Star Revolution - (8/30/18) Six Flags over Texas will open the latest in a series of Larson Super Loop rides, this one being called Lone Star Revolution, which will stand 100 feet tall. It will send riders " back and forth propelling them head over heels through a series of 360° revolutions. The coaster changes direction halfway through the ride cycle; leaving riders suspended upside down at the top of the loop for even more intense thrills."
