Photo TR: SFoT

Postby eskater132 » Fri Jul 10, 2009 10:43 pm

Hello! I went to Six Flags today because it's about 20 minutes away from me and I was bored. Let me just say it was a great day. There was a light crowd, and wonderful staff. It was HOT! Man, the reported high temperature for the day was 103 degrees.

It was a nice trip. Most rides were walk-ons, all the rides were open, including Texas Giant, and I got a PINK THING! So good!


I took many photos. Hope ya'll enjoy!

WOO!
IMG_0977 (Medium).jpg
Meh. Icky field.
IMG_0978 (Medium).jpg
OK. The shopping center in the foreground was bought by the park YEARS ago. This is something that gets to me, but supposedly, maybe, someday the park will expand onto this land.

Flashback. The boomerang.
IMG_0980 (Medium).jpg
I absolutely LOVE Judge Roy Scream's setting. It's on a narrow strip of land next to a clean pond with DUCKS!

HERE WE ARE!
IMG_0991 (Medium).jpg
This expensive and fancy sign tells you that no weapons are allowed...However, a moose explaining this would be much better IMO.

Entry plaza. Complete with pentagon fountain, The Six Flags, and a carousel.
IMG_0993 (Medium).jpg
Bathrooms, fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo, and Strollers, OH MY!

Market of the plaza, with novelty Tees such as...

I love theming. I want to have my own theming in my house, cuddle up with it, and then fall asleep in it. Disturbing?

I thought this was a wicked TR. And I thought it was a great length.

Absolutely loved looking through all the awesome pics, and Mr Freeze looks brilliant.

I really wish we would get a Premier coaster over here!

Awesome Photo TR! I love SFoT. It is by far the best Six Flags park I have ever been to. It is huge, has great theming and landscaping, an amazing atmosphere, and awesome rides (with a large variety). I know all you guys are going to have a great time on the Deep South Trip at all of the very underrated (IMO) Texas parks. Have Fun!
- Come visit me at Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT over at WDW, I would love to meet some more TPR members!

Wow, that was fun to go through! Great photos!

It's great that SFoT still has some of its original charm and that its theming has managed to stay intact to a good extent. It really looks like a great park!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Great photos, the park looks like it has a lot of ride variety with something for everyone.

It's too bad they also have Fly Me To The Moon, that is the worst simulator I have been on and wasn't happy to see Great Adventure had it for a 2nd year in a row.
