Six Flags Over Texas Brings Back Best of Texas Festival
Celebration of Food, Music and Dance of the Latin Culture Starts Saturday
Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, announced a new festival, ¡Viva la Fiesta!, will debut this Saturday, April 24. Highlighting the vibrant Latin culture through food, live music, dance and other experiences, ¡Viva la Fiesta! runs weekends and select Fridays through May 16.
“We’re continuing the celebration of our 60th anniversary season with yet another new festival for our guests to enjoy,” said Six Flags Over Texas Park President Ron McKenzie. “Viva La Fiesta will bring a unique energy to our park atmosphere, and we’re excited to host families and friends to experience this festival as well as our rides and attractions.”
The park also announced the re-opening of the guest-favorite Casa Magnetica, a walk-through “crooked house” attraction, which first opened in 1962, the park’s second season. At Casa Magnetica, gravity has no meaning as guests walk through each room filled with optical illusions.
Carne Asada Fries, Ceviche con Camaron, and Churro-style Funnel Cake are just some of the limited-time food offerings that will be available to guests during ¡Viva la Fiesta! Specialty cocktails, like a Cubra Libre or Mezcal Margarita Fizz, plus specialty Mexican beer, will be served up at the Tiki Oasis and the new Cactus Cantina bars.
The sounds of Latin culture can be heard throughout the park, as live musical and dance performances will don four outdoor stages. The vibrant dresses and patterned suits of Folklorico dancers will mesmerize guests as they twirl and stamp to traditional Mexican beats. Latin pop, reggaeton and mariachis are just some of the musical performances that can be enjoyed at the park.
In addition to ¡Viva la Fiesta!, guests can enjoy everything Six Flags Over Texas has to offer including:
- More than 45 rides and attractions;
- Diamond Jubilee Jazz Band on the Silver Star Carousel Stage
- Dancing Fountain Show at Texas Star Mall
