Following a few simple, straight-forward rules and policies will make your visit to Six Flags over Texas more enjoyable. This is an abbreviated list of park policies; for a full list, consult the park map or the Six Flags over Texas website.
Six Flags over Texas accepts all major credit cards for parking and admission and at shopping and most dining locations. Personal checks are not accepted. ATMs are also available throughout the park.
Several area hotels participate in the trolley system which provides transportation to and from Six Flags over Texas and other area attractions. The trolley stop is located in the Six Flags parking lot near the pet kennel (the former gas station).
Six Flags over Texas prohibits guests from entering the park with any weapon, including firearms from licensed concealed weapon holders (a 30.06 sign is posted at the entrance). This policy is enforced with metal detectors and bag screenings. The park will generally allow you to check knives with security before entering the park; otherwise it's advised to leave weapons at home or in your car.
Outside Food and Beverages
No outside food or beverage can be taken into Six Flags over Texas. This includes coolers.
Alcohol purchased at the park must be consumed where it was purchased. People violating this policy can be ejected from the park without a refund.
Announcements, Messages, and Lost Children
In general, Six Flags over Texas doesn't offer in-park paging. Messages can be left with Guest Relations located at the front of the park near the entrance. Lost children are taken to the "Lost Parents" Caboose located in the Looney Tunes USA section.
Same Day Re-Entry
Visitors who want to leave and return the same day must get their hand stamped at the designated exit. This includes season pass holders (season passes are only good for one entry per day). Transferring hand stamps is of course prohibited and can result in disciplinary action from the park.
Six Flags over Texas is a family theme park and expects all guests to behave in a family-friendly manner. This means that profanity, line-jumping, vulgar symbols or gestures, and other unruly behavior is prohibited and can result in ejection from the park without a refund. This includes acts like flipping-off on-ride cameras, which can result in ejection from the park.
Line jumping can be defined as: leaving the line for any reason and attempting to return to the same place, saving places in line, or bypassing others waiting in line. Line jumping is prohibited and can result in ejection from the park without a refund, not to mention it's just plain rude.
Six Flags over Texas has a strict dress code to ensure a family-friendly atmosphere. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times for guest safety. Clothes with vulgar or offensive graphics or language will not be allowed into the park (turning shirts inside-out is not allowed either). This policy extends to visible tattoos. Swimsuits must be covered at all times. Sagging pants and shoes with wheels are also not allowed within the park.
Smoking at Six Flags over Texas is only allowed in special areas designated by a blue border on the pavement and blue benches. Additionally, there is an Arlington city ordinance that makes smoking indoors or in lines unlawful.
With the exception of registered service animals, pets are not allowed into the park. Pets can be put in an air-conditioned kennel in the parking lot for $10 an animal.
Safety is Six Flags over Texas' #1 priority. All guests must agree to obey all written and oral instructions and warnings regarding attractions. All amusement rides carry an inherent risk and it is the rider's responsibility to read all warnings and contraindictions to ensure they are healthy and physically capable of riding. Guests must also meet all applicable height restrictions.
Loose articles are prohibited on most rides and must be left in a ride locker, on the ride station (if applicable), or with a non-rider. This includes hats, glasses, purses, cameras, and any other object not firmly secured in a pocket. Loose articles present a very real danger to other riders and it is irresponsible to carry them on the ride.
Guests must obey all warning signs and not attempt to enter any restricted area, especially those surrounding dangerous ride zones. Lost loose articles (which wouldn't be lost in the first place had the loose article policy been followed) should be reported to ride operators, Security, or Guest Relations. The park will attempt to recover the article after closing. Guests attempting to enter any restricted area will be ejected from the park (without refund), banned from returning, and subject to legal prosecution if applicable.
Inclement weather, such as strong rain or wind and lightning, poses a threat and may close rides temporarily. The rides will reopen when Six Flags can ensure safe operation.
