Six Flags Over Texas
Where is Six Flags Over Texas located?
Six Flags Over Texas is located in Arlington, TX at the intersection of Interstate 30 and Highway 360, almost directly splitting both downtown Fort Worth and Dallas.
When is the best time to visit the park?
Six Flags Over Texas hosts various events throughout the year. The most exciting events are Fright Fest in the fall and Holiday in the Park in the winter. The middle of summer can become very hot, though the park has many shaded areas and trees. The spring and fall/winter seasons are the best for weather. If you are trying to avoid crowds, weekdays in the summer are your best options.
How much are park tickets? What about memberships and season passes?
Single day ticket pricing varies throughout the operating season. The best option is to periodically check the official Six Flags website for ticket pricing. There is typically a discount for purchasing online. Season pass prices are very competitive with single day tickets. It gives you unlimited visits to Six Flags Over Texas as well as other parks in the chain. Membership options are also available. These give you the option to pay for a pass on a monthly basis and also gives you the ability to cancel after 12 months. Memberships also come with a larger amount of benefits than a season pass which is why we recommend this option for repeat visitors. Check out our Visit Planner page for more park entry information.
How do I know when the park is open?
Six Flags Over Texas has a full calendar of park hours on their main website. Throughout the season, park hours may change or be modified so we recommend checking back at the calendar before you plan a visit. Click HERE to go directly to their operating calendar.
Is there a way to know which rides will be open when I visit?
Ride closures can happen at any moment and most of them are unscheduled. Some rides may close throughout the day and reopen the same day when the park deems them safe for operation. Water rides typically do not operate past Fright Fest and some rides may go down for scheduled maintenance in the winter months. We will provide this type of information when available. For the most up-to-date information regarding ride closures we recommend that you call the park's official phone number. If you are already inside the park we recommend that you visit Guest Relations located near Front Gate.

What is SFOT Source?
SFOT Source, short for Six Flags Over Texas Source, is a comprehensive guide that features in-depth information for the park itself. We began in 2005 providing detailed information on the park but unfortunately shut down a few years after. In 2016, we decided that it would be a great idea to open the doors once again. Our website features great information on rides, dining, shops, live shows, discussion forums, and more. We also have great extra features such as an interactive park map and in-depth historical timeline. We put a lot of emphasis on the history of the park as it is the original Six Flags.
