New Rides, Shops, and Foods at the Park in 2017
We have lots of new thrills and surprises in store for you this year. We’re introducing two new rides, a new gift shop, a new cold treat, and much more to come. Here are a few of the new experiences you’ll find at Six Flags Over Texas in 2017.
THE JOKER™: A Spinning, Free-Fly Coaster
This spring we’ll introduce THE JOKER, a wicked new experience at the park. This unpredictable free-fly coaster flips you head-over-heels at least six times – or more! Seated in wing seats outside the confines of the track, you’ll rise 12 stories straight up an elevator-style lift and set out on your tumbling journey, including dropping down two 90-degree raven free-fall drops. THE JOKER opens this spring in the GOTHAM CITY area of the park.
Galactic Attack: World’s First Mixed Reality Coaster
For the first time ever, mixed reality will be offered on a virtual reality coaster! On Galactic Attack, the complex gameplay experience puts you in charge to shoot targets and make key decisions that affect your ending score. Wearing Samsung Gear VR headsets powered by Oculus, you’ll enter a cosmic wormhole to fight off attacking alien drones. By using a touchpad on the side of your headset and turning your head to line up bulls-eyes, you’ll shoot laser beams to earn points, all while experiencing the dips and twists of Shock Wave.
Funhouse Gifts: Wicked Gift Shop
With the introduction of our new coaster, we’ll also unveil a new retail stand with all your favorite THE JOKER gifts. Soon you’ll be able to find T-shirts, sweatshirts, keychains, magnets, and other fun toys all themed after this maniacal villain.
ICEE: A New Line of Frozen Drinks
This year we’re debuting a new line of frozen drinks in the park. You’ll be able to pick up ICEE beverages in all kinds of delicious flavors. ICEE will be available in kiddie and regular sizes, plus a souvenir cup to get cold refills all summer.
Exclusive Park Merchandise
We’re introducing new retail items you won’t find anywhere else! This spring, Pass Holders will get a special discount on two of our exclusive park T-shirts. Throughout the year we’ll also unveil specialty crew sweaters, water resistant pouches, character hats, and limited edition WONDER WOMAN™ movie capes!
