I was extremely surprised at how well Six Flags Holland was themed. The parks theming reminded me of a cross between Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Disney (Florida). The Mexico section probably was the most elaborate, near the entrance of El Condor. Also, the park is full of water as is the rest of Holland. I was very impressed by everything except the weather and food.
I did think that Goliath could have had more theming though.... I'm sure more was added after my visit considering it was only a few weeks old.... But I really love the giant GOLIATH sign.
Though I thought SFoG's Gotham City area was well themed, I still feel that it had nothing against SFH.
I have to agree that Southwest Territory at SFGAM is one of the best themed areas that I have ever been to at a six flags. SFGAM as a whole has always had decent theming. That has dwindled over the years because of recent installations over the years (V2, Deja Vu and now Superman).

I would also vote for Southwest Terrority at SFGAM, but mostly because of the lack of theming at any SF park.While the area has some type of theming which is nice it doesnt match the standards of the leaders in the industry!!
First of all the leaders of the industry as you always seem to say are basically to you universal and disney. Well let me tell you something mr. "I think I'm owed themeing so I whine about it." Do you know how much money universal spent on themeing? Do you know how much disney spent on themeing? Well they have that kind of money because they are backed by huge companies who have the sort of money to put to that use. So seriously, shutup. You aren't owed anything by six flags. Just because you're mad sfgam got a clone without themeing it doesn't give you the right to whine about it on here. Six flags is a regional park chain and disney and universal are destination parks for the entire nation. When you have a budget of $300,000 for themeing of a new attraction let me know until then shutup.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas is absolutely beautiful. The themeing is very well done from the Mexican section to the Boardwalk section. I also thought Six Flags Over Texas had some very nice looking areas. And, rooting for the homepark, I happen to think Coyote Creek at SFA looks very good also. ------------------ This is counter culture from the underground eternal revolution this is our sound KMFDM better than the best Megalomaniacal and harder than the rest

That's just plain BS. Southwest Territory is, hands down, the best themed area I've seen outside of Disney/Universal. The attention to detail is fantastic and absolutely immersive. In fact, I'd go so far to say that aside from the Raging Bull area, the theming in SW Territory is every bit as good as what Disney has done. What would you change if you could?

Colonel Sanders I for one have made no complaints that SFGAM is getting a clone, i may complain about other things, i didnt complain about the clone, im happy they are adding a new attraction, though i would have added something the whole family could enjoy.
Too much of SW at SFGAM is concrete, the section needs much more shad/trees and when they build rides like Raging Bull and Viper(which are great rides) they could have put in some type of theming in the ride, like BGW did with Alpengeist to enhance the overall theming.
Fiesta Texas themeing was also mostly in place before Six Flags got their grubby hands on it. But aside from placing a Superman ride in the middle of Germantown (shouldn't it be Uberman Krypton Coaster?), they haven't screwed it up much.
