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!
