In a park of world class roller coasters, international cuisine, and thrilling waterpark rides, you can’t go wrong. Head to Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio to sample what the best of the Lone Star State has to offer with family friendly entertainment.

Let’s start with the roller coasters and focus on the record breakers, shall we? Superman the ride features the world’s tallest vertical loop while Batman is the world’s first 4D free-fly coaster. If you’re brave enough to venture near these superhero worthy coasters, you deserve a cape of your own. Other crowd favorites include Der Twister which takes you on 360 degree flips at 4 Gs, the Poltergeist which rockets out of the gate going 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, the inverted coaster Goliath, and the Iron Rattler, a classic wooden style coaster that propels you up to 70 miles per hour on the turns.

Take a break and go a bit slower on these classic rides. Try the themed carousel Amerigoround or Scooby Doo Ghostblaster where you can annihilate the ghosts with your own shooter. If you like waterparks, try the world’s tallest water slide, Bahama Blaster, or take a swim in the wave pool shaped like the state of Texas, Lone Star Lagoon, before heading on the White Water Canyon lazy river.

While you’re at Six Flags, you are bound to work up an appetite with all of your roller coaster screaming. When you’re hungry, stop by Bubba’s River Cafe for some down-home American cooking or try some overseas inspired cuisine at Panda Express or Primo’s Pizzeria. Snacks and desserts are covered by Cold Stone Limited’s deliciously crafted ice cream and Mockingbird Funnel Cakes. Grab yourself some souvenirs, candy, and caricatures at one of the park’s many kiosks and gift shops before you leave.
