Cypress Adventures still up for sale with no buyers
5 months after the original owners put Cypress Adventures up for sale, the park is still up for sale with no word on who would buy it, if anyone would buy it at all. As of now, Cypress Adventures remains abandoned awaiting its fate, whether someone would buy it, or if it would close down permanently.
One of our crew gained access to the park by officials just to see the current state of the park. Here are the pictures he took below.

Six Flags, owner of several parks, purchased Cypress Adventures and they plan to reopen the park for the 1986 season. Six Flags announced they would add the "Six Flags" name to Cypress Adventures. In addition to it, they would add 2 new rides. A carousel in the castle section and a new stand up coaster, The Last Stand, to the park for 1986. Fans of the park are speculating what will happen for the 1986 season in addition to what was announced.
I missed the grand reopening of the now Six Flags Cypress Adventures, but man is it great to be back! I rode the new Intamin standup, The Last Stand, and even though it had a little headbanging problem, it was a lot of fun! I can't wait to see what Six Flags has in store for this park in the future!
Six Flags Cypress Adventures introduces the all new Looney Tunes Town! Featuring your favorite characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, and more! New rides includes Road Runner Express, Bugs Bunny Fort Fun, Daffy Duck Bucket Blaster, Tweety Tea Party, Taz Twisters, and several shops and stands!
So Looney Tunes Town opened on time for the opening weekend of Six Flags Cypress Adventures. Castle of Horror, which was standing but not operating since the park opened under Six Flags, was demolished to make way for 2 of the new attractions in Looney Tunes Town
When the park opened its doors for the 1987 season, many people rushed to check out how much of Fantasy Village changed
The most popular ride in the new Looney Tunes Town was Roadrunner Express, which used to be called Dragon Run
Theme elements were added to the coaster to immerse you into a Looney Tunes cartoon
Bugs Bunny Fort Fun is located in the area that used to be occupied by Castle of Horror
Daffy Duck Bucket Blaster is also located in the spot formerly occupied by Castle of Horror. This ride was relocated from Caribbean Port.
Fantasy Fling was repainted brown and renamed Taz Twisters
And lastly, Excalibur got updated PTC trains.
Looney Tunes Town was a success and people complimented how colorful and bright the buildings looked compared to the previous Fantasy Village. Looney Tunes costumed characters were walking around the park to take pictures with families and to promote the new area. Of course this was just another step for the big plans Six Flags had for Cypress Adventures in the future...
Our two kids (ages 5 and 7) just got out of school, so my wife and I decided that we should celebrate the start of summer by going to Six Flags since they opened a new area for our kids to enjoy this year! Here's how our day went:
Clear skies. Perfect theme park weather!
My one complaint with this park is that this path from the entrance to the new Looney Tunes area is quite empty and uneventful. I hope they add something to it someday.
Look at how colorful this area is!
I think I remember a haunted castle ride that used to be here. I'm not sure though.
My kids loved playing on the playground and riding the Daffy Duck ride!
My 7 year old son is tall enough to ride Excalibur (my favorite ride!), and he was excited to ride, but once we approached the coaster, he chickened out and begged us to ride RoadRunner instead. Maybe next time...
Taking the train to the other end of the park!
My 7 year old son was willing to go on the mine train since he said "It doesn't look like it has any big drops". Boy is he in for a surprise at the end...
My son loved the final big drop of the mine train and told me he wanted to ride Excalibur! We started to head that way, but we decided to ride the log flume since we were kind of hot. We also got burgers at the food court area near the ride.
My 5 year old daughter got sick and threw up, so we had to cut our day at Six Flags short and missed out on Excalibur. We had a lot of fun today! We will be back again someday Six Flags!
