If you go there and just ride x coaster and can look past the slowest crew of all time, you may enjoy it.

That's an accurate assessment of Magic Springs. The waterpark is legitimately great, up there with Holiday World and Dollywood, seriously. The rest of the park besides X-Coaster just flat out sucks. I really wouldn't mind if this place becomes only a waterpark in the future. Stick to what you're good at.

The next park of our trip was probably my favorite...Six flags fiesta Texas. Not only was the theaming on par with universal, but it was also clean. This did not feel like a traditional six flags park.

The iron rattler was my 2nd favorite coaster of the trip(#1 Will be disclosed later in the trip report). I loved everything about this park. I took a lot of pictures from this park, so there will be a few updates.

Goliath is the parks inverted coaster. It's located in the very front of the park. At first, it was kinda hard to find because it's in a weird location.

Yes, fiesta Texas is a great park.

I do have to say that of all the six flags and cedar fair parks we went to on this trip, six flags has cedar fair beat. Not only on park experience, but even service and cleanliness. The only exception would "maybe" be six flags great America.


Lot's more pictures and parks coming soon.
