Which park is better in terms of:

Rides
Atmosphere
Looks (overall layout and feeling of the park)
Shows


Please give fairly in depth details about the pros and cons of each park.

Please give fairly in depth details about the pros and cons of each park.
Rides: SOT has better and more rollercoasters [Even though I love the Superman at SFT; beats them all], but SFT has better thrill rides like the one thing that swings back and forth and some other stuff.
Atmosphere: SOT; much more shade and tree cover and better themed rides.
Looks: SOT It just feels bigger, and plus one again; the trees really help.
Shows: SFT, hands down it wins.

Haven't been to SFT since like 2004 and haven't been to SOT since like 2007 or 2008. One of those.

The Original Six Flags= Six Flags over Texas

The Texas Giant, The Titan, batman, Mr Freeze, etc....Plus Six Flags Over Texas offers a variety of different women to look at. White, black, hispanic, Asian you name it. I rest my case.

Honestly its a tie because Fiesta has the waterpark and I went one day with our job in SA rode the rides 10 times, but I ve been to SOT a million times and never get enough of it, matter of fact its time to go now or spring.

The original's almost always best. :P I go Over Texas with the rides, etc. although that laser show every night at Fiesta Texas is something to watch... plus the lines at the San Antonio park generally aren't as long.

The lines do get long at SOT, but if you can manage to go on one of the week-ends before spring break, you can just about walk on any ride. Once I rode the Batman with my daughter so many times I was starting to get sick. But we were able to get off, walk around and get right back on. Wow! Once the season gets going, the line for rides like that are unbearably long which is the reason we kept riding it over and over and over.

There has been a lot of development in the area around SFT (La Cantera, RIM, have made it a very good shopping desitination.) so there is a lot to do around the park. Also very near to the Hill Country. If you are coming from out of town, SFT is more "tourist friendly"

You go to six flags for the rides so thats all that counts in a comparison like this. So in that case Six Flags Over Texas blows Fiesta Texas to the border
