New Six Flags Over Texas Museum Commemorates Park’s 60th Anniversary
60 years of thrills, music, foods, screams, shows, culture, and unforgettable memories; and it’s finally on display.
From Saturday, July 31st until Thursday, August 5th, the museum will be displaying a “retrospective presentation” (both physical and digital) of the park’s history from noon until 8 pm, at the Crazy Horse Saloon.
“We are thrilled to begin our 60th anniversary season at Six Flags Over Texas with a winter festival for guests to enjoy,” Six Flags Over Texas park president Ron McKenzie said in a statement.
“Now, more than ever, families and friends are looking for opportunities to create special memories together, and this event offers a fun, thrilling, and safe experience for guests of all ages.”
Inside the museum contains historic and priceless items dating back to the construction of the park in 1959 such as: clothing and costumes, old ride signage, replicas such as the original Texas Giant, Texas Chute Out, and Run-a-way Mine Train, original photos, cups, a TV displaying original commercials, and more!
On Thursday, August 5, the first 10,000 guests inside the gates will receive a free commemorative 60th Anniversary button. In addition, a ceremony will take place at 1:00 p.m., outside the Crazy Horse Saloon, where park president Ron McKenzie will make an exciting announcement about what lies ahead and pay honor to how it all began.
Guests can also enjoy specialty throwback food and drink items, including Pink Thing bars that can be purchased for just one dollar only on August 5, and fireworks show each night from Aug. 5-8.
During the 60th celebration, guests can enjoy everything Six Flags Over Texas has to offer including:
- More than 45 rides and attractions;
