A look at the Mardi Gras Parade in 2017.

The second year of Mardi Gras Festival at Six Flags Fiesta Texas is shaping up to be great. The park is adding 3 brand new parade floats, a more extensive line-up of live entertainment options, and even more new food and drink options!

Additional Parade Floats & Nighttime Parade

  • The intricately designed 16-foot tall floats will represent a variety of themes, including three new additions.  The first features bright purple clusters of grapes, with Bacchus himself making an appearance, the second will feature favorite symbols of the musical and gastronomic offerings from the French Quarter, and the third will be embellished with a detailed pirate theme!
  • The daily, high-energy parade will take to the Rockville, Kidzopolis and Spassburg streets one hour before the park closes. Select dates will only feature a daytime parade. Please visit our Show Schedule to see daily parade times.
  • Diamond and Diamond Elite members will also have the chance to participate in the parade or observe from a new VIP area.

Additional Live Entertainment

  • Fiesta Texas will be bringing back the King William Brass Band for the 2018 event and they will be playing on the all-new Rockville Outdoor Stage in front of Rockville High. A NEW Mardi Gras-themed band will also make their debut in 2018 and they are called the King of N'Awlins Swing. They will be featured at the Texas State Square Stage in Los Festivales. The park's award-winning line-up of entertainment is also included, which features the all-new ¡Bailando! show in Teatro Fiesta.

New Food & Drink Options

  • On top of a plethora of previous food options, new food and drink options will include bread pudding, New Orleans Hurricanes, and Comfort Collins.

All of this and much more will begin THIS FRIDAY! Mardi Gras Festival is set to operate from April 27th through May 28th. Check out our Mardi Gras Festival 2018 Guide for the most comprehensive festival information on the internet.

Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster Opening to be Delayed
Attach0-6.jpg

Reported earlier this week by mySA, Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster's ideal opening of March 3rd had been delayed until "mid-March," according to Fiesta Texas, making it unavailable for the upcoming Botanica Music Festival.

SFFT Source was scheduled to take part in a special VIP media event on Friday, March 9th and the intention for the ride's opening was to be for the park's Spring Break run (beginning March 10th). Unfortunately the opening of Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster will be pushed back further from this date as well.

While we don't have any information regarding the new planned opening of Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster, the park has stated that the opening of the ride will be "later this Spring." We at SFFT Source are looking forward to the future opening of the attraction.

SFFT Source still plans to visit the park soon to provide details on all the brand new updates and improvements happening out at the park as well as to look at the construction progress on Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster up to its opening.

Changes Coming for the 2018 Season

If you follow us on social media, mainly YouTube, you have likely been aware of the many changes and upgrades coming to Fiesta Texas for the 2018 season. Here's a rundown of the park's announcement from today's newsletter.

From SixFlags.com:

We have lots of new experiences in store for you this year. We’re introducing new attractions, premier entertainment, additional shops, extra food locations, and updated game stands. Here are a few of the new offerings at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in 2018.

WONDER WOMAN Golden Lasso Coaster

The biggest new thrill in 2018 is WONDER WOMAN Golden Lasso Coaster, opening this March. This heroic new coaster is the first of its kind in the world to feature a single I-beam rail, which seats riders in a single file line. This unique design gives you open-air views as you tackle a straight-down 90-degree drop, two airtime hills, a 180-degree stall, a zero-G roll, and overbanked wave turns.

Mardi Gras Nighttime Parade

Our exciting Mardi Gras festival returns in 2018 with more food, more beads, and a brand new nighttime parade. The streets of the park will come alive daily with dazzling lights, authentic floats, and lively jazz musicians.

Coaster Candy

Our new candy shop will be the best place to pick up all your favorite goodies. Watch our team prepare fresh homemade fudge daily and decorate elaborate caramel- and candy-covered apples. Coaster Candy also features sweet treats in all varieties, including cookies, lollipops, chocolate candy bars, gummies, and much more!

WONDER WOMAN Gifts

With the introduction of our new coaster, we’ll also unveil a new retail store with all your favorite WONDER WOMAN gifts. Soon you’ll be able to find T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, keychains, magnets, and other fun souvenirs all themed after this powerful hero.

Funneliscious! Funnel Cake Stand

You’ll now be able to pick up your favorite park treat in Rockville. Funneliscious! will serve our famous fried funnel cakes topped with powdered sugar, plus specialty varieties topped with strawberries, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. You’ll also be able to get soft serve ice cream on your funnel cake!

Blue Snowman Soft Serve

After you ride our new coaster, stop by our newest food stand next door to keep cool with a frozen treat. This location will serve Dole Soft Serve Fruit Swirl with all your favorite toppings.

Cocktails (On the Corner)

We’re expanding our alcohol lineup with a new bar inside Primo’s Pizzeria. Enjoy a variety of beer, frozen drinks, margaritas, and mixed cocktails.

Two New Games

We’re giving you even more chances to win prizes with the addition of two new games. In the Crackaxle Games area, test your hand-eye coordination with our wacky toilet game. You’ll have one chance to toss a ball into the toilet bowl to win poop emoji prizes. Plus, in Rockville, we’re introducing a life-sized version of the traditional Connect 4 game. Using strategy, skill, and chance, you’ll have to match four giant counters in a row to win a prize.

Visit Planner Revamped for 2018 Season

We have revamped the Visit Planner page to reflect changes and updates coming to the park for the 2018 season.

What is the Visit Planner?

The Visit Planner is a simplified way to plan your visit to Fiesta Texas. This page has been purposefully designed in a simple matter as many options during your visit can become overwhelming. The Visit Planner includes information regarding tickets, passes, parking, dining, shopping, Flash Pass, and more. We break down all of these categories so you can see what is included as well as note our personal recommendations.

What has changed for 2018?

A few changes have been made to various parts of the Visit Planner for 2018. The park is now offering a Gold Plus Membership that includes many brand new perks. We've added this as well as the park-built chart comparison that sets pass and membership options side-by-side to compare benefits. One-Day Dining Deals started to pop up at the park last season. You can now purchase these online. We've added information regarding this dining option. We've simplified the layout of our Visit Planner even more so that all information is straight-forward and not overwhelming.

We update the Visit Planner periodically throughout the season to reflect changes that may have been made by the park.

If you have any questions regarding Visit Planner please do not hesitate to ask in the comments below!
