Six Flags Over Texas

Six Flags Rollercoaster

There’s nothing like thrilling rides, indulgent treats, and live music to get your heart pumping and your feet moving.  Conveniently located halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth, Six Flags Over Texas offers something for everyone!

Every year, members of the LGBTQ+ community can celebrate at Out in the Park (formerly Gay Day at Six Flags Over Texas), a special-ticketed event. During the event visitors can enjoy a medley of live performances and a special catered lunch.

In Dallas and Fort Worth

If you find yourself in Dallas or Fort Worth, we’ve got a few recommendations there too. Just down the stretch of I-30 East in Dallas, you’ll find the Oak Lawn neighborhood, voted the 2014 Best Gayborhood in the Country. Here you’ll find honky-tonk at The Roundup Saloon, plenty of space on the dance floor at Station 4 (S4) nightclub, and the big game on TV at the Cedar Springs Tap House where you can also catch a bite to eat and swig to drink.

You’ll also want to visit Hidden Door Bar, the longest-serving meeting place for the Dallas LGBTQ+ community. For more than 40 years, this bar has been opening their doors and slinging drinks. If you’re a beer drinker, you won’t want to miss the Sunday afternoon Beer Bust.

Head west toward the south side of Fort Worth where you will find several LGBTQ+ nightlife options, such as Club Reflection, a spacious bar offering cocktails & beer, plus a pool table, karaoke & dancing. If live music is more your style, stop by Club Changes.
