Six Flags Fiesta Texas has fun fest written all over it, unless you’re a mom with triplet six-month-olds, a triple stroller, and three giant diaper bags. In that case, Fiesta Texas would be spelled H-E-L-L. If that’s not you, but you’re still not sure if Fiesta Texas is a good fit for your family, never fear, help is here!
Just call me your handy-dandy Six Flags guide for the day. I have been trotting all over the theme park this year with my membership pass in one hand and my four-year-old tightly gripping the other one.
We know the ins and outs of the height requirements, the best family rides, what to bring, and what not to do!
For starters, what exactly is a membership? I’m so glad you asked! For San Antonio locals, it’s a great alternative to a season pass. You can go anytime all year, plus enjoy the perks of free parking, bring-a-friend-for-free days, and lots of coupons for food and merchandise. That all comes out to about $28 a month (this is an estimate for a family of four).
