We recently spent the day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The best rides are the Iron Rattler and the Superman Krypton Coaster. Definitely worthwhile for roller coaster fans. The waterpark that is attached to the property is also very nice. We definitely had an enjoyable day.

This was my first visit in 20 years. A lot has changed, but a lot is the same. This park has about 60 rides of various types, including the water park. Lines are to be expected. So, it's a lot to do in one day. If members of your party are not riders, either because of age or inclination, plan to park them at the water park or to hear impatient whining. So, this really is a park for ride riders with some shows mixed in.

You'll spend money here. Lots of money. The gate prices are high, as are just about any amusement park now days. Expect to spend about $50 per person if you buy tickets in advance. $20 for parking. $10 per person per meal. The food is on the higher side and not all that great or plentiful. If you buy the reusable drink bottle for $15 it is free to refill that day and $5 per day to refill any other day. They sell reusable bottles for Slurpees and frozen lemonade also. Specifically for those products. Like don't expect to put soda in it or they'll probably charge you full price. Lockers are $13 to $18 with no deposit refund like at another well known park in the city. Season passes are probably the way to go if you are likely to be there more than once, though you can buy two day passes cheaper. They offer season long dining passes as well, which again is the way to go if you plan to return more than a few times. They say it pays for itself with four visits, which is about right given the $10 per meal cost and the pass being $80 and giving you lunch and dinner each visit (if you arrive before 3:30 PM). Ditto on the season long parking pass.

The Sangerfest Hall has a food court with lots of offerings and lots of seating. It is nice to be able to get everyone what they want in one place: hot dogs and sausage, BBQ, turkey legs, etc. They show cartoons on a big screen, which can be a nice way to take a break from the heat while you eat. It would probably get crowded when the park is busy, though.

There are good music shows, but you will need to arrive early and coordinate times if you want to catch more than one or two. And you will need to decide that's what you want to do as otherwise ride wait times will make it just about impossible to do. The shows cover a range of country, 50's rock, Broadway musical, and more.

The water park is nice, again with lots of rides. There are decent kids splash areas and a wave pool, as well as a lazy river for those who want water without thrills. Again, plenty of fun water rides if you are inclined.

This park is best enjoyed with older kids. Like, the kind you can tell to meet you somewhere at a certain time so you can do what you want rather than wait in line with them or wait for them to wait in line without you. Oh, and they sell beer, wine, margaritas, and shots. So there's that.

Overall, this park is exactly what you would expect from Six Flags or any other modern amusement park. Lots of rides, lots of things to pay for, lots of people and lines. If that's your thing, it's great. If you have members of your party who are not into that, it's a lot less fun. If we lived in the area, we'd have season park passes, season dining passes, and season parking passes and go several times a year. As a tourist, I'd rather go to the other well know park in the city because it offers a lot more variety of things to do and better food at better prices. We actually go to that one several times a year. With a younger child who isn't as in to rides, that's the way to go for us.

We had a great time, got the Platinum Flash Pass for two in our party. They were able to ride every thrill ride at least twice, resulting in about 25-30 exciting rides during our 8+ hour visit. The other members of the party rode fewer than a dozen rides due to the long queues. The Platinum Flash Pass is ridiculously expensive - but really the only way to see the whole park in one day.
