ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – During the summer you could always count on Six Flags Over Texas being open seven days a week… now changes to the schedule mean more chances to visit the park.

Six Flags announced that the park in Arlington is moving to year-round operations on weekends, holidays and special dates in January and February.

In a statement park president Steve Martindale said, “With our vast collection of thrills for all ages, coupled with the region’s mild temperatures, expanding to a year-round operating schedule will give our members and season pass holders even greater value for their money.”

The changes are effective immediately, so that means this year — after Six Flags Holiday in the Park — the park will be open the next weekend and forward.

Six Flags Over Texas will also be open holidays, regardless if it falls on a weekend, and selectively choose opening dates during the week for big events happening in the Arlington Entertainment District or across North Texas.
