Another question for you guys; does anybody have experience and/or insight into how the park handles rain? Getting a little nervous about my weekend trip here because of flash flood warnings through tomorrow night, then Friday night is forecasting a 50% chance and Saturday an 80% chance. Does the park close entire park/major attractions in a sprinkle a la Great Adventure, or do they try and keep ops going?

Does Fiesta Texas have a tendency to rehab coasters in the early months? Google searching "Fiesta Texas rehab schedule" just brought up a bunch of addiction centers. I may be down in San Antonio in early February and was curious.
This is their first year-round season so this is going to be our first glimpse into how they do that as they previously just did it during their brief offseason. Hopefully they actually post a rehab schedule but generally Six Flags just rehabs things with no warning whatsoever.
Oh I thought they had been yearround longer than that. I'm also keeping wind and low temperatures in mind that time of year. I know they don't get New England levels of cold, but I've seen TRs mention Superman needs to be in the 50s.
^ nope. . year round starts "officially" after FrightFest.
mostly just Sat/Sun, but there seem to be quite a few weekends where Friday is included as well. So they do have 4-5 days between weekends on what used to be the "off season" to work on stuff.
as Bill notes? Six Flags tends to just pull things down for rehab without any notice.
that said: Roadrunner was down most of 2018, so doubt that will come down again for rehab for a while. Iron Rattler has been down several times (for days long issues) multiple times, as has Wonder Woman. . so those likely will be fine (ie: no rehab in early 2019)
if anything was gonna get shut down for rehab? I'd guess likely Goliath - since it's right at the front of the park, and gets pretty good ridership.
and it's Texas. . rare that it will get cold enough to shut anything down. Wind is another story, but cold? very rare.
