Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington, Texas

Concierge.com's insider take:
The flagship Six Flags, midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, features Disneyland-like theme areas dedicated to each of Texas's historic suzerains: Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederacy, and the United States. The park is a thrill-seeker's paradise, with no less then eight roller coasters, led by the Titan, with its 255-foot, 80-plus-mph first drop. You can also make six upside-down loops on the Flashback or ride beneath the track with your feet dangling on Batman: The Ride. Purists will enjoy the 14-story Texas Giant, the world's best wooden roller coaster. Wind down by going to the top of the Superman Tower of Power for a 30-story free fall.
Open March through December. In-season days and hours of operation vary; for details, call ahead or check online calendar.
