It’s one of East Texas’ favorite Metroplex-area destinations, and for all you roller coaster fans, thrill seekers and lovers of food that’s really bad for you, it’s time for fun at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.

Six Flags is already open on a limited basis — just on weekends for now until it is open full-time, seven days per week starting Wednesday, May 16. Until then, you can still visit the park each weekend from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. each Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each Sunday. It also is open on four Fridays between now and May 16, including Good Friday on April 6.

There’s no better way to get tickets for Six Flags than to get a Season Pass, which get you unlimited visits to the park (and all 13 Six Flags parks), discounts, additional tickets for friends and more. For only $59.99, it pays for itself after just two visits. Normal tickets are $39.99 per person if they are bought online, but adult tickets are $56.99 at the park, so season passes definitely make sense!

Get more information on Six Flags Season Passes to find out other options, including ways to combine season passes for Six Flags Hurricane Harbor and finding flexible payment options. You can also order Flash Passes to get to the front of lines, advanced parking and more on the Six Flags website.

The park also hosts plenty of shows and concerts throughout the year, which you can find a list of on their events calendar.

One of our favorite rides at Six Flags Over Texas (without forgetting the new and improved Texas Giant) is, without a doubt, Mr. Freeze. At 70 mph, and going straight up for Lord knows how high that is (don’t really want to know), it’s such a rush.

Well, Mr. Freeze is still running this year, but this time, it’s going to start off backwards this time. Awesome! Want a sneak peek? Check this out:
