I'm planning a trip to Texas and I have five days worth of parks. I am flying in and out of Dallas...so the question is.....what the heck is the plan for parks?! SFOT, SFFT, Schlitterbahn (which is 1 or 2 days ?!), Seaaworld, maybe houston!? (but proley not)...so if you could please post what i should do! (also keep in mind, i have a 6flags season pass...so more 6-flags means less spending) also please post what i should do if i can goto houston, and what i should do if i cannot
It's possible to spend a full day at all parks, even split time between sfft and sea world. But sea world gets very very crowded, mostly families for the shows, so rides never have outstanding lines. Most I've ever waited with full parking lot was 15mins for Steel Eel. SFFT can and does get packed very quickly, as does Astroworld.
SFFT and SeaWorld are about 20min drive from each other .. SFFT is 4 hours from both SFOT and SFAW and about 30-45mins from Schillterbahn, depending on traffic and construction. Same goes for getting between the 3 major six flags parks. There's major construction on I-10 outside houston in Katy, Major construction on I-35 between SFOT and SFFT and sometimes bottlenecks on I-45 between SFAW and SFOT in Conroe and the Woodlands.
Unless you (or your family) are the types that have to stop every hour to stretch or get a snack or crap like that! Believe it or not there are people that call an hour drive a 'long drive'. Robb and I will only stop when we have to get gas. We drive to Vegas and Phoenix straight through from LA!

I agree with Elissa, I live in PHX and we usually only stop if the car is running low on gas. My only warning is be cautious of Houston's Traffic, when I was there driving on a friday at about 1 it was hell. Houston in general sucks, but everything else in Texas is very negotiable. Allow enough time for SFOT I'd say at least a day if you want a full experience for the place, cause SFOT really is an awesome six flags with a lot of awesome coasters. SFFT is pretty much a one coaster park for me (Superman) so in reality you probably could do half a day there and half a day at Sea World because the lines at SFFT aren't to bad.
