Northwest San Antonio is home to the theme park Six Flags Fiesta Texas, formerly known as Fiesta Texas. It was the first business to operate in the La Cantera master-planned development and neighborhood on March 14, 1992. The 200-acre park's original purpose was to develop into a tourist musical entertainment park with a focus on Texas' musical heritage. Time Warner bought the park in 1995, and for the 1996 season, it adopted the Six Flags name.
The area was formerly a part of the Redland Quarry, which started operations in 1934, until Fiesta Texas built in 1992. The area where Six Flags Fiesta Texas is located had run out of limestone by 1988, making the property suitable for construction.
The Six Flags corporation started the process of removing licensed theming from attractions that the park had created in prior years, across all of its theme parks. To prepare for the 2011 season, Six Flags Fiesta Texas had to change the names and themes of seven rides, as well as the kids' theme park from Wiggles World to Kidzopolis.
The Scream drop tower ride, which is 205 feet tall and can be seen from within and outside the park, is the landmark of the recreation area. Visitors coming from the crossroads of Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 can see the ride thanks to its vivid colors and Fiesta Texas signage. The quarry conceals a significant chunk of the park, while other attractions, including the majority of its roller coasters, are visible from the outside.
Weekends - Summer hasn't quite arrived yet. In May, the park is open on the weekends, and Sundays are your best bet for less visitors. Memorial Day Weekend: After Memorial Day, Fiesta Texas opens every day. Over the three-day weekend, it's usually fairly busy.
Our season tickets included parking, which we did in the Fiesta Texas parking lot. Parking in the Fiesta Texas parking lot is $15 to $20. Parking outside of the park grounds probably involves a long walk. You may park on the property and be fairly close to the main gate.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas prohibits the use of coolers, outside food, and beverages. However, accommodations are made for those who have unique dietary requirements, such as those involving food allergies and baby formula.
All loose things, such as cell phones, hats, handbags, backpacks, drinks containers, and other items, are forbidden on all rides in order to protect everyone's safety. Six Flags is not liable for lost, broken, or stolen property.
