Six Flags Over Texas
An Early Morning Walk
October 20. 2007
After being awake for almost two whole days, driving from Illinois
to Texas, spending the day riding the Boardwalk Bullet at the Kemah Boardwalk,
driving up to Arlington and spending a couple of hours at Six Flags Over
Texas that night you'd have thought that I'd sleep in. But since I
don't really have the chance often to see the sun rise over coasters anymore
and we were staying right across the street from Six Flags Over Texas I
was up before the crack of dawn and good to go. Besides sleep isn't
for a coaster trip with ones buddies, it's for afterwards.
As I left the hotel and crossed the street the clear sky was slowly turning
orange and with the temperature nice and warm it was destined to be a fantastic
day for some serious coaster riding.
Judge Roy Scream is actually located outside of the park proper (accessed
via tunnel) so you can get several nice views of it without ever entering
I walked around the Judge's turnaround and noticed that the parks parking
lot had opened and that there were several cars already there so I walked
along the lake towards the main entrance to Six Flags Over Texas.
On one side of the lake sits Six Flags Over Texas' parking lot and on the
other side sits the Judge. It was just magical watching the Judge
silhouetted by the slowly rising sun.
