That's how it seems every time I go to Silver Dollar City and Worlds of Fun. Lol.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The Spanish area has to be of the best theamed areas of the park. It contains la viboria, and this.

I think this was last year's new attraction
20170707_155252.jpg
I love a good triple spin ride, and this one even had a theme to it.
20170707_211900.jpg
This year's new attraction is no joke.....well, actually it is

Fun ride, but did not spin nearly as much as fiesta Texas Batman did.

One last look

This ride was never did open. Bummer, I was looking forward to it.
20170706_210950.jpg
The park has 2 mine rides. 1 for the kiddies, and one for adults.
20170707_152049.jpg
The adult version is a lengthy, and very well theamed coaster.

Fun kiddie coaster.
20170707_124146.jpg
Hmmm....where have I seen this coaster before?
20170707_130141.jpg
Still a great ride, no matter how many I have been on.
20170707_125514.jpg
The station for the coaster also doubles as a disco.
20170706_202120.jpg
Love the name of this water ride. I'm surprised it's not used more at six flags parks.

Great addition to Six flags. This one was identical to the St Louis version.
20170707_185113.jpg
Time to get out of the heat and check out some shows.
20170707_192854.jpg
Can't remember the name of this show, but it was good.
20170707_141021.jpg
Chart toppers was another good show.
20170707_141017.jpg
As we were leaving the show, I noticed this on a seat. I hope it's not what I think it is.

Lot's more from sfot coming up.....stay tuned.

Great report. Six Flags Over Texas looks like a really nice Six Flags park.

Just curious, how many flips did SFOT's Joker give you. 2-3?
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala

A few more shots of six flags over Texas before we move onto our next park.

This coaster launches you backwards up this spike.

Station shot.
You think that it would be nice and cool inside here, but it was about 100 degrees inside.
20170707_130537.jpg
I love how this park has giant misters all over the place to help keep you cool.

I believe this was supposed to be the "French" section of the park. Only thing in this section was some history of the park.

We had a great time at six flags over Texas. Now onto our next park....Frontier city.

Even though I visited in 2009 before the RMC treatment, the park blew away all expectations I had leading in. I loved the Spain area near Vibora, and Shockwave was AMAZING. Still tops in my books...the airtime in the back is so abrupt. What a great collection of above average rides in a pleasantly themed park.

Great report! Shockwave sounds really good and it's so ironic, but expected, Mr. Freeze had a hot station.
