Six Flags Fiesta Texas



Welcome to the Mardi Gras Festival at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.


Fiesta Texas is celebrating it's 25th anniversary this season.


The main street area is decorated for the Mardi Gras festival.


The Loony Tunes characters are all decked out for the festival too.


One of the main reasons I am at the park is this ride - BATMAN: the Ride.

This is a S&S Free-Fly Coaster and as you can see there is nothing "normal" about this coaster.


As soon as you disengage the lift hill your seats begin to flip and rotate.

At the end of the top track you flip underneath and the train then hangs from the track.


Due to the nature of the trains, it really doesn't matter if it is on top or hanging from the track.


This is a crazy ride.  I think my most disorienting lap on the coaster had me flip 7 times.


Also in the Rockville area of the park is this very cool tea cup style ride called Hustler.


Amerigoround.


Scream! is the park's S&S double shot tower complex.

The other main coaster in this area is Poltergeist.

Poltergeist is a Premier LSM launched spaghetti bowl coaster.


The coaster features quite the knot of coaster track.


Let's head into the Fiesta Bay Boardwalk.

Scooby Doo Ghost Blasters is one of the anchor attractions in this area.


Waverunner.

Spinsanity.


Fireball.


Hurricane Force 5 and the Crow's Nest Ferris Wheel.

The coaster in this area is called Pandemonium.


This tea cup spinner coaster provides a unique ride every lap.


The next section of the park is called Spassburg.


Whirligig.


Kiddee Koaster.

Superman Krypton Coaster is the major attraction in this area.

This B&M floorless coaster interacts with the quarry wall.

This is possibly the best floorless coaster in the country.


It's a lot of fun.


Bugs White Water Rapids is the park's log flume ride and it is top notch.


The log flume even features a few roller coaster segments.


The ride is themed to the Singing Sword and has several characters along its route.


SkyScreamer is the park's taller swing ride.

In the Crackaxle Canyon section there are two great roller coasters.  The first is Road Runner Express.


The Arrow minetrain is a hit with the families.


The train is themed to Wile E. Coyote chase of the Roadrunner.

It's probably one of the better minetrains out there.

The star attraction at the park is Iron Rattler.

This RMC re-built steel/wooden coaster is a wild ride.


The coaster even features a barrel roll.


I really like the tunnel through the quarry wall at the end of the ride.

In the Los Fesivales section, there are two coasters including Boomerang Coast to Coaster.

The other is Goliath.

This B&M inverted roller coaster uses the Batman layout.

It is a great ride and an excellent addition to the park.

I have a little time before the parade so I decided to take a lap on the train.


I really like the look of this tunnel area through the quarry wall.


I headed back over to the Rockville section to check out the Mardi Gras parade and attractions.


Here comes the parade.


The parade is led by the King William Brass Band.


The next few photos will be of the different units in the parade.
























The parade ends with Bugs and Babs Bunny as the Mardi Gras Royalty.
I had a great time at Fiesta Texas today.  I look forward to a return visit in the near future.
