Six Flags Fiesta Texas
San Antonio, Texas


Taking screams to new heights.

Do you think you have what it takes to leap over tall buildings? Standing at 205 feet in the air, this mind-blowingly massive three-legged steel tower is so sky-scratchingly tall, we give you credit just for daring to ride it. Strap into your chair and settle in, because the ride to the top of the tower will be the longest, most anticipatory seconds of your life.

There are usually only two options with a drop tower—up, or down. But Scream has three gut-wrenching ways to make your move.

Space Shot blasts you nearly instantly to the top, then you bounce your way back down. Turbo Drop slowly lifts you inch by terrifying inch to the top. You chill up there for 10 nerve-destroying seconds, then you plummet about a million times faster than nature intended, with a few bonus bounces thrown in just for kicks. Combo mode means you’re getting the best of both methods.

You probably had no idea you could hustle up and down 20 stories that fast. In fact, you won’t even have time for your jaw to drop. As you crest the top, enjoy your free moment of weightlessness and the overview of the park, but don’t get too comfortable before you plunge down without warning. It’s the most craziest, fastest lift and free fall ride you will ever experience.
