TODAY IN HISTORY, AUGUST 1, 1961:
The first Six Flags Over Texas amusement park opens in Arlington, Texas.
A park with an amazing assortment of rides, games and shows, designed with history themes, Six Flags was wildly successful. There were over 17 million visitors in its first decade.
I remember a beautiful 20 something “dance hall girl” in a sun dress flirting with and singing just to me…my sisters gave me a hard time about it. I think I was about four!
Do you know what the Six Flags which flew over Texas were?
