Fiesta Texas and Sea World Keep Upping Their Thrill Ride Game
Six Flags, Fiesta Texas is once again adding to its ride lineup. According to KAST-12, The new Dr. Diabolical’s Cliffhanger is scheduled to open on Saturday, June 25th. As a thrill-seeker, I cannot wait for this ride to open to the public. If you haven't been to Fiesta Texas or Sea World in a while, there are many new rides that have recently been added to their lineups. One has even been updated too, I will add that to my list.
DR. DIABOLICAL'S CLIFFHANGER
The new ride is billed as the world’s steepest dive roller coaster. The Cliffhanger will drop you at a 95-degree first drop, multiple inversions, and extreme airtime! Would you ride this? Opening this month.
DARE DEVIL DIVE FLYING MACHINES:
The World’s Tallest Ride of Its Kind. Experience the thrills and sensations of weightlessness through aerial banks, loops, and dives, all while seated in a retro four-seater steampunk flying machine.
THE JOKERS CARNIVAL OF CHAOS:
Carnival of Chaos, one of the world’s tallest pendulum rides, NOW OPEN, stands at a record-breaking 17-stories in the air! This ride will reach speeds up to 75 miles per hour, as it whips back and forth
While this is an older ride, however, it was recently made over with a fresh coat of pain and retheming in the queue line. At one point, I felt this ride was cursed because it was always closed and we could never ride it. However, since the remodel, the ride has been open on every visit.
SEA WORLD SAN ANTONIO:
It's time to drive down 1604 and head to Sea World. They have also added a few new rides as well as they are slowly building their thrill ride experience.
THE TIDAL SURGE:
This is the newest thrill ride at Sea World San Antonio and it is pretty intense. The new attraction is the biggest of its kind in the world and features two pendulum-like arms that will soar progressively higher and higher with each swing. Reaching speeds of 68 miles an hour and heights of 135 feet.
THE TEXAS STINGRAY:
This is the tallest, fastest, and longest, wooden roller coaster in the state of Texas. Texas Stingray. features a 100-foot drop, 3,379 feet of track, and a max speed of 55 mph.
WAVE BREAKER: THE RESCUE COASTER:
While I don't consider this an extreme thrill ride it is super fun. This ride will have you straddling a jet-ski-style car while you race out over the lake, launching 60 feet into the air through banks and turns along 2,600 feet of track. Side note: I was at Sea World when this ride got stock and the back part of the park was shut down for a Fire Department rescue. That was an interesting trip.
It is so awesome to have this many thrill rides within driving distance of Victoria and the Crossroads area. When was the last time you went to a theme park?
