Trip reports, rumors, construction and more!
Summer has now kicked into high gear at Six Flags Over Texas! The park is open daily, shows have opened for the season, and new additions are slowly being introduced. In this weeks update we'll cover the world's largest game of Freeze Tag, a new show in the Southern Palace Theather, construction on Harley Quinn Spinsanity and the "Gotham Chicken Restraunt," SUPERMAN VR, and more!
World's Largest Game Of Freeze Tag:
Yesterday, June 5th, Six Flags Over Texas successfully set the Genesis World Record for 'largest game of freeze tag.' To make the event even more special, the entire cast from the movie "TAG" was at the park to host the game. Below is video footage from the stars arriving on stage as well as a little bit of footage from the game itself. This was an exciting and unique occasion, and we're so glad that we were able to take part in it.
Harley Quinn Spinsanity Construction:
Fences and additional concrete have been placed around Harley Quinn Spinsanity, and the ride is now standing on its own as well. Additionly, the ground between the ride and the rest of Gotham City is being flattened so that concrete pathways can soon be poured.
"Gotham Chicken Restaurant" Construction:
Progress on the new "Gotham Chicken Restaurant" is getting further and further each and every day. A new milestone has been reached this week as the concrete slab that will house the restaurant has now been poured! We imagine that once the concrete is settled, that vertical construction will quickly progress. It's evident that the park wants this project completed and opened as soon as possible, and they're going all hands on deck.
Hey Mr. DJ: Technicolor Beat:
Hey Mr. DJ: Technicolor Beat is now open in the David Blackburn Southern Palace Theater. Shows will take place at 1:30, 3:15, 5:30 and 7:30 daily through August 12th. Below is a video we shot of the show on June 4th, just 2 days after it's opening day. This is a fantastic new addition to the park's entertainment lineup, and we're happy to say that we're big fans!
After a ride on Superman: Tower of Power, we noticed 2 new boxes sitting against the fence between the red and yellow towers. After looking a little closer, it appears that these are actually storage "sheds" for VR headsets. These are very similar to the ones installed on each end of the Shockwave station when that added VR back in 2016. From the looks of it, I would expect VR to be added to the red tower within the next 2 or 3 weeks. We'll keep you updated!
That's all for this Six Flags Over Texas park update. We can not emphasize enough just how excited we are for the 2018 season. So much has already taken place and from what we've seen, it's only the beginning!
