Amusement park rides in Texas live up to the “everything is bigger” here statement! Park-goers can reach dizzying heights on any number of drop towers and roller coasters from Galveston to San Antonio. With an abundance of thrill rides to experience, and the opportunity to defy gravity, Texas amusement park fans will want to visit one (or all) of these three fun-filled destinations in the near future.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas features Batman: The Ride, which is 4-D coaster designed to both delight and disorient the rider. The park is also home to an inverted coaster called Goliath, which allows the rider’s feet to dangle while it takes them through five inversions. And, then there’s the Iron Rattler, which launches its riders into a 171-foot drop. For families, there are less intense rides such as bumper cars and go-karts and plenty of children’s rides, making this a great family outing.

No matter what the ages in your family group, bring them all to ZDT’s Amusement Park where everyone plays, from toddlers to teens to adults. The popular Switchback wooden roller coaster whizzes through and around the park’s buildings, chilling and thrilling riders with amazing speed and a nearly vertical Grand Spike at the end. The Maxflight roller coaster and flight simulator lets you design your own adventure with a partner or solo, featuring Jet Flight, Roller Coaster, and Bobsled experiences that you control. Experience the roaring, soaring, flipping, racing, and rolling with over 38 billion possible ride combinations. Be sure to take this adrenaline-pumping ride before you eat. Speed-junkies like the multi-level go-kart racing track that features Thunder Volt electric cars, which accelerate more quickly than gas-powered vehicles.
