Theme Parks

A visit to Arlington is not complete without a visit to one of its two Six Flags theme parks: Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, both filled with rides, fun, and delicious grub.

At Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, visitors can spend a hot summer day spiraling down Atlantic Panic, a high-walled slide roaring with rough Atlantic storm waters. Or they can take a relaxing and scenic raft cruise down a slow-moving lazy river. Guests love catching the waves at Surf Lagoon--a million-gallon wave pool that makes king-sized waves in an ocean of fun for all ages.
