WOW! This park is awesome. 3 coasters were down and I still had a great time. The themeing was excellent, it was definitely a "spare no expense" type of thing. The fact the park was built in a quarry was a neat thing. The "canyon" wall setting jsut added to the beauty of the park. If I had my way, I would have one huge waterfall all the way around the park instead of in a few places. Neat stuff. Oh and I also loved the architecture. So neat...now on to the rides! (review uses the 1- to 5+ scale)
2 rides - 1 front, 1 - back
Easily the best minetrain I have ever been on. Smooth and entertaining. I loved the Wile E. Coyote themeing and some the characters you had to ride twice to see everything. Neat stuff that I wish other Six Flags parks would do.
Closed for Retracking :(
Closed because of accident when firing up new trains
Closed because it sucked ;)
SUPERMAN: KRYPTON COASTER
4 rides - 2 front, 2 back
Other than the name, this ride was the best coaster in TEXAS. There is not a dull moment on the entire course. Ride on the right side of the train for some awesome airtime and visuals. The turn up on the wall after the vertical loop is quite disorienting leading into the barrel roll. The midcourse trim was barely on the entire day and they ran three trains as well the entire day. Also the park was implementing the "Double Rides" promotion so that made it even better...lines were tolerable even with it.
1 ride - back
It was a Boomerang, and I only rode it to add to the track record. I still dislike these things...I swear they are like weeds.
What a name, had to look it up to spell it correctly. A fun little rollerskater ride, that I again had to borrow a kid to ride. :)
A Double shot with attitude. This was my first one of this type of S&S tower. It was quite interesting how they combined the two types (shot & drop) into one. Loved it.
I like these rides. This was the first one I have been on and it was so much fun. IMHO this ride was the result of a Sea Dragon and a Wipeout having a child. :)
A Topspin, I didn't like the program this one was running, it wasn't too "woo hoo". I have been on better and I hope ThunderHawk runs a better program, as well as TR:TR.
BUG'S WHITE WATER RAPIDS
Loved the themeing and the ride was a lot of fun. The "rollercoaster-type" drop was an added bonus to this fun ride.
Almost made me sick, loved the billards theme to it.
Very good layout, got everyone on our boat soaked. Loved it! The waterfall it EVIL :D
PARK OVERALL GRADE: A
POINTS TO IMPROVE ON:
I think that they need an inverted, granted SWT is down the road, but they need one. Also another woodie would suit the park well. Also just a personal thing, if you are going to have a boardwalk area, have a body of water for it...I think that would be neat. Other than that, this park rocked, even with the closed coasters.

As for Polty and Rattler, they definalely need the overhauls their getting. I rode both last year and both were way too painfull to be much fun. I can't wait to drive down later in the year to try the improved versions of both.
I pretty much agree on Superman:KC. It was awesome when I rode it. I was fortunate that the park wasn't too crowded during my 2 and a half day visit. And all the coasters were up and running. This made for shorter lines on most of them.
I managed to get 57 total laps on S:KC and about 33 on RR Express during the morning Primetime. Most of those laps were re-rides.
I still put Titan slightly ahead of S:KC however. I'm a speed and intensity freak and Titan has more of both in my book. S:KC was awesome in it's own right however.
