I was on the second train out, and it was incredibly smooth, especially considering all the ride's been through. They constructed a winding, extra-long queue line for the more crowded summer months. Today was definitely not one of them. They opened the ride with both trains running, but it was already down to one train by midday, and that was more than enough.
They built a nice little entrance plaza in front of the ride with some limestone and tile and a nice fountain. And the ride is ridiculously bright with its school-bus orange supports.
Took a spin on everything else except for Rattler and Boomerang (because I value my spine). I hadn't been to the park for a few years, but it looked great. Very clean, very nice landscaping, and abundant staffing. Tony Hawk was an excellent addition for families last year, and Goliath is the icing on the cake. The park has a solid lineup of rides now.
Anyway, enjoy the pics!
Clocked about 12 rides in.
It's awesomely smooth considering it's been relocated, not once, but twice.

Why does San Antonio need two of these? Great question. San Antonio doesn't need two of them, but yet it does.
But on top of that, Six Flags had a B&M invert that needed a new home. Every other park in the chain either had the same ride or an SLC. SFFT had neither. It was also probably the easiest park to move the ride to (take I-10 west for eight hours).
Of course, it would be a different story if Six Flags had ordered this ride new from B&M.
I really like the colors myself. So where is the ride at? To the left of the entrance plaza as you enter the park?
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
But, yes, the ride is directly to the left of the entrance plaza, just behind the covered tram station.
You can see the tram station below the zero-G roll in this picture.
