Plenty of room for the green lantern wing rider. Go from flashback to where the strip mall is. Isn't there a vacant bumper car building too? I thought xflight had a small footprint

I do not want one of those ridiculous low- capacity Intamin Zac-Spins in here. Those things are a waste of space.

Hello All,

I just joined here after lurking for a little while. My family will be headed to the park on May 31 & June 1 for our daughter's 19th birthday. My husband and daughter have never been. I went once in like 1980 when I was a kid and again in maybe 1990, whatever year Texas Giant opened. I remember waiting in line for 3 hours and then getting off with the most intense headache!

Neither me or the hubbs have ridden a coaster in about 10 years I guess. We grew up in Houston and spent our summers at Astroworld. I managed to get my daughter there a few times when she was really young, it closed when she was only 11 and we didn't make it there the final year I suppose money was pretty tight or else we would have gone! Her first coaster was Greezed Lightnin', she was only 4 and she looked petrified the whole ride. She hung on my arm for dear life. Hopped off when it was over threw her little arms in the are and screamed "let's do it again"! The only ride she's been on since then has been the coaster at the Kemah boardwalk so she's super thrilled!

So now that you know my whole life story :b I'm interested in knowing a couple things...

We are actually driving up on the 29th to take her to Medieval Times and to get settled in at our hotel. I was thinking about heading to the park when we get there so we can process our season passes - does this seem like it would be worthwhile so we can get straight to the fun on Friday???. (We got passes because it was cheaper than tickets for two days according to the website and we decided to plan a second trip this summer to Fiesta Texas.)

FlashPass - worth it for Saturday June 1st? I cant afford it for both days...Will it be super crowded by then or will the summer rush not be in full swing yet?

Since there will only be three of us, how do they handle single riders here? At astroworld they always called up a second single rider to join you, and sometimes the employees would ride if there weren't any more singles but I think I recall from a million years ago that I saw people riding alone on rides there.

In your opinion what would you ride first? My daughter wants to ride the new Skyscreamer but I want to do Titan first! I mean, in the end it will be her choice since its her b-day, but I want to talk her out of it because I don't want to ride that thing! I didn't even like the old Gunslinger at Astroworld and it was only a few feet off the ground, I was always afraid I'd fall in that mucky pond and/or lose a shoe!

I would ride in this order.

New Texas Giant (NTAG)
Titan
Shockwave
Superman - Tower of Power
Runaway Mine Train/ Mini Mine Train.
Mr Freeze
Batman
Skyscreamer
Judge Roy Scream
Pandimonium
Runaway Mountain
La Vibora

PS- If you can't handle a standard size swing ride (Gunslinger), then you're better off staying away from Texas Skyscreamer. :shockr:

I wasnt talking about zacspin. I'm talking about a wing rider but GL themed.


As for ride recommendation, I like to start small and work my way up. Hard to go from Titan to Minetrain and be excited. Don't forget runaway mountain

We need to compare the old flashback site and the strip mall area to see if xflight or another winged rider footprint

If not a winged rider maybe a recycled stand up or flying coaster.
