This month, we had the pleasure of being invited out to celebrate Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington!
I had been to Six Flags once before, but have never ridden any of the roller coasters and it was my first time to attend Holiday in the Park!
Six Flags Over Texas Holiday in the Park
The park was absolutely beautiful! It was completely decked out in holiday lights and Christmas cheer! There were even various fire pits throughout the park where you could stop to warm up and make s’mores.
The park opened at noon so we arrived then and were able to quickly get through the ticket line. The weather was absolutely perfect. If you live in Texas then you know that we have had an abnormally warm November.
The warmth was perfect for our day outside at Six Flags, but as soon as the sun went down it was really chilly so I recommend taking a jacket, gloves, and a beanie if you are headed to Holiday in the Park.
We went into the day expecting to want to buy a Flash Pass like we did at Hurricane Harbor (the lines were HOURS long), but the lines at Six Flags were a lot quicker so we didn’t end up buying one.
I do have to say though if you go on a day that is super busy, like we did at Hurricane Harbor, the Flash Passes are amazing.
We ate lunch before we got to the park but had snacks, hot chocolate, and dinner while we were there. You can expect typical prices for theme park food here so make sure to bring extra money.
There are a ton of cute photo opportunities and lots of stuff for kids at Holiday in the Park too! You can read more about it here.
Six Flags Over Texas Roller Coasters
Since the friends I brought with me to Six Flags were seasoned roller coaster riders, they wanted to take me on the Titan first. Which is the most thrilling ride at the theme park! It gets up to speeds of 84 mph and has a 250-foot drop!
After getting the first and scariest ride over with we rode almost every ride on the theme park’s “thrill rides list“. It was a ton of fun and even though I was scared on every ride I also had a blast on them all!
Here are the rides that we rode and loved:
- The Titan
- The New Texas Giant
- The Batman
- Pandemonium – love this one because all four of us got to ride together!
- Runaway Mountian (this ride is in the dark)
- The Joker (I skipped out on this one)
- Riddlers Revenge (I skipped out on this one)
There is a place to put your things near each ride so that you don’t have to hold it, but I would still advise not to bring any expensive cameras or tons of cash or anything just in case. A lot of the rides have zipper pockets in the cars now so that you can store your phone/wallet/sunglasses in there while you are riding.
Overall, we had a TON of fun even with me being terrified of every ride. We will be back again!
