I won 4 tickets to Fiesta Texas this year and our family decided to wait closer to Halloween to visit the park for several reasons. First, the weather was much more bearable in October than the summer months and second, we had never been there when the park was decorated for Halloween. I was a bit worried it would scare my 4 year old, but it didn't at all. The park was practically empty, which was great because we didn't have to wait in lines at all. I'm guessing going on the Saturday of the UT vs OU game in Dallas had something to do with the low attendance as well. UT smoked them BTW :)
The park was clean and the rides were fun for the entire family. The only problem we encountered was the log ride broke while we were on it. We got stuck at the bottom of one of the inclines (I guess better there than at the top!). We sat there for about 15 minutes when it finally started back up. I was a bit concerned to finish out the ride knowing that it had problems. It broke again when we got to the next incline and we almost went up and then down with another log of riders, but fortunately we stopped and they went ahead. I was so worried we were going to crash into them at the bottom. I have been going to Six Flags since I was about 5 (so many many years) and this was the first time I was on a broken ride.
The Halloween shows were fun and the kids knew the characters were in costumes and/or wearing makeup. Our favorite was Mrs. Lollie's Pops! This Saloon Show involved the audience and sang popular songs, but gave it a ghoulish twist!
Some of the special events they had at the park cost an additional fee which bothered me a bit. Had I paid for tickets, I would of been even more upset that I had to pay additional funds for certain attractions. The food is of course expensive and not that good. The Frankenstein Brains (ie Funnel Cake turned green) was not cooked all the way.
All and all we had a great time, got soaked on the Gully Washer (they had turned the water red-ick) and ended the night with the Monster Mash production. Kids were sound asleep on our way home from San Antonio.
