The main difference between the parks is the age of the parks.

Six Flags Over Texas opened 60+ years ago as the first Six Flags park, while Six Flags Fiesta Texas opened more recently, 30 years ago.


Six Flags Fiesta Texas spans across 200 acres, featuring a whopping 39 total coasters, and 8 different themed areas.

The most popular ride at the park is the Scream ride, which is a three-legged 205 ft tower, launches riders directly into the air, before bouncing back down.

Riders will experience how fast this ride can climb 20 stories, before suddenly dropping down.

The DC Universe is the most recent addition to the areas of the park, where the super popular Superman Krypton Coaster can be found.

Having opened in 1961, this park shows you much of the foundation that was used around the next generation of parks.

Many fans love visiting Over Texas due to the history that it created, as well as how the park has been preserved over time.

Best Ride

New Texas Giant is the most popular ride at the park with an interesting past.

It would make its debut as a wooden coaster, but would then be updated using the latest technology in steel track engineering.

This coaster provides you the best of both worlds, as you get the wooden coaster feel without most of the roughness that usually comes with it.

The ride begins by making a right, and then immediately climbing the 153 ft hill.

Once you reach the top, you'll briefly be able to see the entire coaster along with a unique view of the park (and city).

Make sure to enjoy it quickly and then hold tight, because a few seconds after that it is time for the massive drop!

You'll reach speeds of 65 miles per hour and even experience at drop at almost 80 degrees.
