San Antonio is home to Fiesta Texas, The Thrill Capital of South Texas. This year they introduce The Joker Carnival of Chaos as the perfect complement to their expanding theme park! With a speed of up to 75 miles per hour, this cutting-edge marvel also reaches a stunning 17 stories in the air! This MASSIVE pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise, and as it whips back and forth — higher and higher it gives riders a staggering view of the world below them.

What’s New at Fiesta Texas!

Set in the newly announced DC Universe section of the park, it will further compliment the park’s trilogy of Super Heroes, by re- introducing the Joker villain to the mix of branded rides and attractions. 

Fiesta TX Wonder Woman Roller Coaster

Six Flags Fiesta Texas recently introduced a new industry innovation, WONDER WOMAN: Golden Lasso Coaster, the world’s first single rail coaster with a single track design that is only 15 and 1/2 inches wide. 

Their Mardi Gras, Fright Fest and Holiday In the Park events all return in 2019 to amaze and delight, as well as a newly announced year round operating schedule to include weekends and holidays. 

Visit San Antonio and see why Six Flags Fiesta Texas is the prime location for thrills, deep in the heart of Texas!

Dallas Children’s Theater presents Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly

© 2011 Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss. By special arrangement with Pippin Properties, Inc. and Gurman Agency LLC.

The coolest ever rock-n-roll romp through a bug’s world commands center stage in this hip-hoppin’ musical that promotes eco-consciousness, earth science, and tolerance of others. The popular characters from the bestselling books are not so unusual: Worm eats his homework and has no legs. Fly has 327 siblings and wants to be a superhero. And Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt.

When Fly’s Aunt Rita needs help getting out of a tight spot, the squad must combine their talents and work as a team on the rescue mission of a lifetime. While there’s no pop quiz, you might just learn that a bug’s life isn’t that different from your own.

Get to know all the critters in the class!

Worm, Spider, and Fly have been studying their environment all year long… and now they are ready to share the facts they have learned with you and your family.

Before each performance for a critter-themed craft that will have you bugging out big time. As is tradition, photo ops abound and actors will sign autographs at all performances. And, exclusively after the show on opening night, all are welcome to cool off with a snow cone from Big D Kona Ice.
