Six Flags over Texas

The six flags that once flew over Texas are: Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, United States of America, and the Confederate States of America.

Instead of listing them all out, the amusement park in Arlington took the lazy route and went with "Six Flags". The boys had free admission courtesy of their school and we left it until the last possible day to go. Maybe in procrastinating we hoped the weather might have begin to cool off. Wrong. It was hotter than blazes and we lasted maybe five hours in the sweltering heat and took in less than half the rides. The best ones were where a good soaking was involved. Must say, the Texas Giant (tallest wooden hybrid roller-coaster in the world) lived up to the hype.

The Titan was gut-wrenching as well.

After almost losing our lunch on the coasters we finished our day on the sedate merry-go-round and quickly headed home to the A/C.
