Six Flags Fiesta Texas opened in March, 1991, and throughout 2022 it’s throwing a massive 30th anniversary celebration, with a new roller coaster, expanded festivals, mini museums, and a nostalgic Then and Now Trail.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas ratchets up the excitement with a year of festivals

The year’s major festival is the big 30th Anniversary Festival from March 24-May 30, with the return of classic shows including “Rockin’ At Rockville High” 1950s-style musical trip down memory lane, the German oompah sounds of “De Wurst Band,” and more.

From July 1-August 7, the All American Food Festival invites guests to indulge in sweet and savory treats such as taco nachos, Lone Star rib sandwich, S’mores cake a la mode, bacon wrapped St. Louis pork ribs, and more than 100 craft and seasonal beers.

Live entertainment keeps the party going in CrackedAxle Canyon by day, and “Rock the Night” fireworks make for a glorious end to the day.

Terror lurks during “Six Flags Fright Fest,” the park’s premier Halloween season event, scaring the pants off of visitors from September 9-October 30 in the depths of its haunted houses and scare zones, and through live entertainment and the possibility that a monster might just join riders on one of the park’s attractions.

As the anniversary celebration draws to a close, the nostalgia of “Holiday in the Park” adds the joyous air of Christmas to guests’ visits. The event runs from November 19, 2022-January 1, 2023. Join Santa as he lights up the Christmas tree, witness a live performance of the Nativity, celebrate with merry eats at the Taste Of Holiday In The Park food festival, and wonder at millions of dazzling lights.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas launches Dr. Diabolical Cliffhanger coaster

The park is almost ready to debut it’s brand-new Dr. Diabolical Cliffhanger, the “world’s steepest dive coaster,” which opens in summer 2022. Dr. Diabolical may claim she has an “elixir that is capable of preserving life,” but riders on this massive demon of a coaster might just see their lives flash before their eyes while hanging above the coaster’s 95-degree, beyond-vertical first drop!
