Guide Review - Six Flags Fiesta Texas

In a city full of attractions, Six Flags Fiesta Texas still stands apart from the crowd. Few visitors leave San Antonio without stopping by for a day of fun at one of Texas' most popular theme parks.

Fiesta Texas' popularity is largely due to the fact it is a multifaceted theme park - offering park visitors the chance to experience everything from roller coasters to waterslides in a single day. But, of course, like any theme park, the big rides get most of the attention. And, at Fiesta Texas, there are plenty of eye-popping rides. The Superman Krypton Coaster, Tony Hawk's Big Spin, Poltergeist, and The Rattler are among the most popular thrill rides at Fiesta Texas.

However, for those looking for a little milder ride, Fiesta Texas offers plenty of family and kid appropriate rides. The Crow's Nest ferris wheel, Daffy's School Bus Express, Taz's Tornado, and Scooby Doo Ghostblasters are among the family favorites. Foghorn Leghorn's Barnyard Railway, Yosemite Sam's Wacky Wagon, and Bugs' Whitewater Rapids are among the most popular rides for the little ones.

During the heat of summer, many park visitors rely on Fiesta Texas' onsite water park - White Water Bay - to keep cool. White Water Bay offers a variety of water rides ranging from mild to wild, so everyone in the family is assured a safe, fun experience.

Fiesta Texas also offers a full compliment of live entertainment, including shows, parades and concerts. And, from May 27 - Aug. 13, Fiesta Texas features a nightly fireworks and laser show beginning at 9 p.m.
