AAA Editor Notes
Six Flags Fiesta Texas is at 17000 I-10W. This 200-acre musical, theme and water park, in a former rock quarry with 100-foot cliff walls, celebrates Texas and the Southwest and offers live entertainment and both thrill and family-style rides.
Themed areas are Los Festivales, a Hispanic village with a continuous fiesta; the German village of Spassburg; Crackaxle Canyon, an old-time Texas town that celebrates the Fourth of July daily; Fiesta Bay Boardwalk; 1950s Rockville, where every day is homecoming; and White Water Bay, the free water park. The water park features a Texas-shaped wave pool; a five-story interactive water tree house with mazes; and the Bahama Blaster, whose launching capsules send riders speeding down twisting, looping tubes. The newest addition to White Water Bay includes Thunder Rapids, one of the world’s largest rocket blast water coasters. At 942 feet long and 3 stories tall, this thrilling water coaster will have guests experiencing lightning-fast uphill speeds and adrenaline-pumping drops.
In spring 2018, Six Flags Fiesta Texas will bring back a Mardi Gras Festival featuring a variety of Mardi-Gras-themed food and drink along with a parade with festive floats and music. As a tribute to seasonal events at Fiesta Texas, several floats will feature a salute to the seasons, including Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park.
