www.sixflags.com/overtexas/bugs-bunny-boomtownThis all-new attraction is sure to please kids and parents alike. Debuting in 2014, the new, expanded Bugs Bunny Boomtown will feature five entirely unseen rides. The most anticipated features, including more shady spots to watch the kids for parents, include the Looney Toons Adventure Camp for interactive play, Daffy Duck Bucket Blasters for refreshing fun and the Bugs Bunny Cloud Bouncer for those who like heights. Be ready for all of this and more coming soon.

VIP Tours
www.sixflags.com/overtexas/vip-toursAnother new addition to the plethora of fun at Six Flags Over Texas is the VIP Tour option. These customized tours will take guests behind the scenes and into the inner workings of the park. At $249 per person, this may sound steep but when you consider the privileges awarded to participants of this tour as to standard admission, it’s worth a second thought. VIP Tourists get autograph sessions, snacks, permission to cut in line and even souvenir rides and character photos to solidify those memories.

Caddo Lake Barge
www.sixflags.com/overtexas/caddo-lake-bargeThis particular ride really is fun for all ages as it dashes this way and that along the water in reminiscence of the great Caddo River. The perfect rite-of-passage ride for youngsters who still want to push their limits, this two-minute-long rush will have them sloshing up and down and all turned around throughout its duration and will prove who is really ready for the big leagues.

Dive Bomber Alley
www.sixflags.com/overtexas/dive-bomber-alleyThe first step up this ride might be the hardest part. Before it even begins, participants must get to the top of the 150-foot arc. From there, high above the ground, dive bombers will have to take a deep breath and make the plunge downward reaching highway speeds before being caught by their bungee harnesses, swinging above the crowd in a ride like no other.

www.sixflags.com/overtexas/titanOf course, few visit Six Flags without getting slammed in a few roller coasters, but passing up the Titan would be a mistake. Also described as a hypercoaster, the Titan has a 255-foot drop as far down as a tower before achieving the maximum thrill level with spins and twists galore. Not for the faint of heart, forget what you thought a roller coaster could be and experience modern manic design and the age-old desire for speed wrapped up into one great ride.
