This popular 200-acre theme and water park has always drawn crowds with its state-of-the-art rides, and the thrills just keep on coming. In 2018, Six Flags debuted the WONDER WOMAN: Golden Lasso Coaster, where riders sit single file on interlaced monorail tracks, the better to give them unobstructed views of the 100-foot-high quarry walls (if you can pay attention while dropping 90 degrees straight down). As you queue, you’ll move through the tropical landscaping and ancient architecture of Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s fictional home island. America’s first rocket-blast water coaster, Thunder Rapids, introduced in 2017 in the splashy White Water Bay waterpark, shoots riders uphill at lightning speeds and then thrills them with sudden high drops. Other rides include the Superman Krypton Coaster, with nearly a mile of twists and turns and two big inversions; the Iron Rattler, a wooden coaster with modern steel rails and track; the 60+-mph Poltergeist roller coaster; and Scream!, a 20-story “space shot and turbo drop,” to name just a few. Virtual-reality simulators and laser games keep the theme park just tech-y enough to thrill millennials. Wet-‘n’-wild attractions (especially popular in hot Texas summers) include the Lone Star Lagoon, the state’s largest wave pool, and the Texas Treehouse, a five-story “drenchfest” with a 1,000-gallon cowboy hat that tips over to pour water on unsuspecting passersby. Some traces of local character date back to the days when this park was plain old Fiesta Texas. Themed areas include Los Festivales, a Hispanic village where every day feels like Fiesta; a German village called Spassburg with a large Sangerfest Halle theater; an old-fashioned Texas town called Crackaxle Canyon; the Fiesta Bay Boardwalk with its Midway vibe and Ferris wheel; and a 1950s town center called Rockville with a retro-style Frostee Freeze ice cream shop.
