Located in San Antonio, Six Flags Fiesta Texas is the smaller of the chain's two parks in the state. Nevertheless, it still features Six Flags' standard array of intense roller coasters, major thrill rides and lightly-themed kids' attractions. The park's biggest draws include Goliath (an inverted coaster), Poltergeist (a high-speed launch coaster) and Scream (a "Combo Tower" drop ride). The majority of its children's rides are packed into the KIDZOPOLIS area, although there are a handful scattered throughout various other lands.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas opened relatively recently, in 1992, as part of a planned development. It was designed to feature a heavy focus on southwestern music, and retains this today, with a much broader line-up of shows than other Six Flags parks. While it was originally developed by the Gaylord Entertainment Company, in association with property developer USAA Real Estate, Time Warner (which owned Six Flags at the time) took over its operations in 1996. Since then, a number of major roller coasters and thrill rides have been added to its line-up, including Goliath, Pandemonium and SkyScreamer.
