This is what I consider a "dark ride", where you are on a boat and try to capture Yosemite Sam. I have to admit that it was one of the nicer themed rides in the park, yet the track wasn't very smooth and it would bump hard as it was making the slight turns. It was enjoyable nonetheless.
I enjoyed this exit sign from the Yosemite Sam ride - made me laugh!
I don't recall what "land" I was in at the time I took this picture, but I thought this was a nice building to take on the theme of the area.
I ended up going on the "Oil Derrick" which offered a great view of Six Flags and the surrounding area. This takes you up around 300 feet, so judging some of the rides from this height ... I decided at that point some rides in the park weren't for me at all.
From this shot you can see a lot of the Gotham area with "Superman Tower", "Batman", and "Mr. Freeze"
"Texas Giant" and "Titan" still look huge from this view, and believe me ... when you are standing by these roller coasters they DO NOT like tame whatsoever!
For those sports fans, here you can see (I believe) Rangers Stadium, and also the future Cowboys Stadium just beyond "Titan". So, as you can see this area will soon be very popular during the sports season.
This ride shoots you almost halfway up, then starts to climb all the way up to about 300 feet. From that point it drops you down mercilessly to the bottom, then shoots you towards the middle once again. Just looking at this ride in action made my heart skip a beat, and I felt I was better off as an observer then a rider.
I enjoyed the "Mine Train" after watching "Superman". It's somewhat like Big Thunder ridewise, and was pretty well themed.
Finally, I got to the area I wanted to see all day ... Gotham! I truly loved "Batman" and went twice, well actually the park wasn't that full so I was able to ride twice in a row without getting off.
"Mr. Freeze", although I don't have a picture I'll post video later from when I rode the train and passed by this coaster. I must say that this was rather scary looking so I skipped it. Oh, and I'm sure you see the neon shirt inside the entrance - those are the employee shirts ... that way they're easy to spot.
One of the older coasters in the park, and somewhat outside the park. It's got quite an interesting location.
The six flags that have flown over Texas.
This train takes you around the park and makes about three stops. Pretty fun ride, but I couldn't hear the announcer too clearly.
My photo op. Oddly enough the "characters" don't have any CM's along with them - nor anybody to take your picture. I had to wait a few minutes for someone to come by and take this picture for me. Robin made me cross my hands like that, probably because I was wearing my Disneyland Resort shirt ... LOL!
Aquaman! This was one of those water drop boat rides, I didn't ride since I've gone on similar rides in California ... but did enjoy the Aquaman theme.
Wile E. Coyote being naughty.
Everything IS bigger in Texas! This pretzel was bigger then my head, but there was no cheese available ...
Part 3 to be coming up soon!
