I went last year on a Friday before Cinco de Mayo (and I'll actually be there again in a week).
I used Uber last time and plan to use it again. It's super cheap in Mexico (I think it was $10-15 USD for a 1-1.5 hour ride). Plus Mexico City traffic is really bad so at least you know the fixed rate with Uber. For safety, Uber tells you how many rides your driver has given so I'd like to think a driver who has given 1000+ rides won't break bad all of the sudden. Uber also has a feature where they can let someone else know when you've arrived.
The pick up and drop off point at the Mexico City Airport is clearly marked. The pick up point by Six Flags was a bit uncomfortable. You are picked up on the street just outside the parking lot entrance and it's a complete cluster of cars and buses. The latter were aggressively trying to get me to board.
I stayed in downtown Mexico City last time in what I believe was their financial district. It was a very nice hotel and reminiscent of the financial districts you've seen in the US. This time I'm staying at the airport for convenience. I remember seeing hotels close to Six Flags, but (maybe I'm wrong) the buildings nearby looked a bit rundown so I'd be hesitant to stay there.
Crowdwise, Six Flags Mexico can get pretty busy. Their Flash Pass is a bit different and an amazing deal. For $20 USD, you get 10 skip the line vouchers you can use on any eligible ride. You can use this on the same ride repeatedly or different ones. Unfortunately Medusa appears to be off the Flash Pass now and it had one of the longest waits in the park.
From what I saw, most people rope drop Superman since it's at the front so if you go to Medusa early, you can marathon it before the line builds. The line also cleared out at the end of the day. Meanwhile Superman was consistently a 30-60 minute wait all day, but on the Flash Pass.
I hope you enjoy it because Six Flags Mexico has a nice one-two punch and is one of the best looking Six Flags parks. The theming in their queues is surprisingly great.

I'm just doing some fact-finding for a potential Mexico City trip in a few months. I'm assuming the answer is "no" because it's Six Flags, but do they have a ride refurbishment schedule anywhere? I assume that they take rides down from time-to-time since it's a year-round park. I didn't see one but maybe I'm blind.
Since Christmas in the Park runs through mid-to-late January I was thinking about doing a trip towards the end of the event. Is that still a pretty busy time or is that sort of their slow season? I'm actually sort of hoping to hear the former since I assume that means there's less of a chance of anything noteworthy being down for refurb.
In addition, any fun suggestions for things to do in Mexico City aside from parks would be awesome.
