I would just say to go in the order of the rides you want to do the most. The reason being, this is a park that closes a lot of rides in even a very light rain. When I was there last Thursday, we tried just going in a circle but a very short period of rain closed things for hours, so there were rides we wanted to get on that we couldn't. Most of the flats, Titan and Pandemonium will close in the rain and lighting will close anything that doesn't stay on the ground. It takes a very long time for rides to reopen as well, if they ever do.

At the park right now, Texas Giant just threw someone from the ride. Section of the park is on lockdown.

Rider that was ejected from Texas Giant at Six Flags Over Texas confirmed dead. Source: https://twitter.com/DFWscanner/status/358388049220091907

UPDATE!

Official statement from Six Flags Over Texas confirming one dead on Texas Giant: http://thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/2013/07/arlington-police-fire-working-a-fatal-incident-at-six-flags-over-texas.html/

We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time.
