I say three nags because I have three children. My 7 yr. old girl("mom,look! im tall enough to ride!Im not a baby!!)My 5 yr. old boy("mom,im ALMOST tall enough! I AM NOT riding that little ride!!)And then of course theyre is my 25 yr. old boy(my husband)!!who swears every time we go back will be w/out the kids because he never gets to ride what he wants to ride!Me,well lets just say this..i am in no way a thrill seeker.Being on the interstate in Dallas is plenty enough excitement for me!!So what I recommend to people like us is this..LOTS of quarters.My kids love playin. games so next month when we go back,im takin them to the arcade while dear old dad rides ALL the big rides(by his self,of course)maybe ill let my(grown)little girl go ona few,and hopefully my boys grown just another inch since the last time.And maybe just maybe I can have a nag free day!!!!! tip..take a back pack in w/you &include bttld. water. this helps carry prizes,drinks,etc.. another tip..i make my kids wear their team shirts that have their names on the back. easy spotting just in case!!

The Texas Giant

The Texas Giant is a legend and was named #1 wooden rollercoaster in the world (I'm not sure it is still #1). This is just an amazing mass of criss-crossing timbers which twists and soars and plunges. It reaches a top speed of 62pmp and rises to a height of 143ft but the length of this giant is 4,920ft in all.

By the end of the day I was exhausted and gave this one a miss until next time, but I believe it shakes you around and is not one of the most smoothest rides - still it is a legend and shouldn't be missed.

I forgot to get a photo inside the park and the only angle to get even part of it was from a service road - not a great foreground (travelogue) so again this is with credit to Joe Schwarz at joyride.com..

Shock Wave

Shock Wave was the first ride we did. It was the world's first rollercoaster with back to back vertical loops.

I didn't take a photo for this ride and so credit goes to Joe Schwarz at joyrides.com..

The Oil Derrick

This is the landmark at Six Flags and probably for Arlington as well. You can ride to the top and get an overall view of not only the park but skylines of Dallas and Ft Worth. It was closed due to the windy conditions when we were there - pity, as I really wanted to go up it. Next time.

The Titan

The Titan is the parks latest ride to open in 2001. It features one of the world's biggest drops from 255 ft up at hyper speeds of 85 miles an hour. It was the last one we did as it had been closed most of the day due to wind but it was certainly one of the smoothest rides of the day. The ride takes 3 minutes of plunges, a 120ft tunnel of total darkness, a series of camel back hills, huge spiral curves and high speed helixes.

Mr Freeze

Mr Freeze was a ride and a half. This is the tallest and fastest coaster in the southwest. You are launched from 0 to 70mph in less than 4 seconds. It shoots you vertically up 242 ft and drops you down backwards, shooting you back through to where you started. You are left wondering what the hell struck you. I came off looking like I had been through a hedge backwards. The ride is supposedly Mr Freeze's revenge on Gotham City.

Superman Tower of Power

The latest ride added in 2003 was the Superman Tower of Power which stands at 325ft and takes riders straight up, dangling them to take in the view before a free fall shunt back to the ground. Top speed is 45mph. The ride is based on the legendary DC Comic Super Hero Superman.

The Simulator ride - much like VT

Have you ever drove an Air force plane like this one?

I haven't, but this simulator ride takes you over mountains, valleys and the Grand Canyon and Hawaii. It is soooooooo real, you would think that you were the pilot.

I LOVE THIS RIDE!!!!!!!!!

It changes every year also, which makes it fun to experience different things, this year it was the Childrens toy world, riding a roller coaster, bumping into doors, dinosaurs, etc.

6 Flags over Texas Amusement park

This is Six Flags over Texas Amusement Park. It has something for everyone of any age. Roller coasters, water rides, trains, bumper cars and the TALLEST ride in the world is Superman ride.

Ok, I am not shy at all. But it looks like this putty cat has got me covered. ;o)

Wildcatter

This ride shoots you 10 storeys straight up in the air then pushes you over the edge, plummeting you straightdown in kind of a freefall.

Some of our group did this ride but I had just had a large cup of hot chocolate to warm up and didn’t wish to see it surface again.

Batman The Ride

Batman The Ride is an innovative supercoaster which reaches heights of just over 109ft and speeds of 50mph. First you are taken through Gotham City with ornate scuptures and nature sounds then into Gotham City Park with all the noise of street sounds and chaos and finally into the Batman cave and into your seat.

Then its off, suspended in a weightless sensation, you are taken through six inversions and corkscrew spirals with a ‘zero gravity heartline spin’.
