Been to SixFlags several times, during the summer and at the special events they have. ScreamFest in Oct., Holiday in the Park, Dec.

Don't recall if you ever mentioned having kids but it is real good time with or without them. They have some new coasters there that are great. My 10yr daughter just started enjoying roller coasters so we are headed there this summer for sure.

While in the area you can visit The BallPark in Arlington to the Texas Rangers Play, it is just across the parking lot from SixFlags. There is a water park across the highway, I think SixFlags owns it, so your pass may work there as well. Not too far from FortWorth. There is a great Science Place there with an Imax and all kinds of cool stuff for kids.

They also have a starparty last Friday of every month.

Thanks for the invite and clear skies. Keep the reports coming that keep me going when I can't make it out, either from clouds or kids.


PS: I don't think my Tasco would put on much of a show... or I would invite you up North.
