Bugs Bunny Boomtown Opening at Six Flags Over Texas

Last year Six Flags Over Texas announced an expansion and renovation to their children's area, but now the full details have been released.  Families will children will have Bugs Bunny Boomtown to look forward to in 2014, complete with ten rides and attractions.

“Families are at the core of everything we do” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Over Texas park president. “We pride ourselves on offering thrills for all ages and we look forward to having these new rides and attractions provide wonderful memories for youngsters and their parents for years and years to come.”

Bugs Bunny Boomtown will feature three new rides and a large play structure, named Looney Tunes Adventure Camp which will let kids climb and explore.  A swing ride, named Taz Tornado, will also be added and kids can pilot their own spacecraft on Marvin the Martian Space Rockets.  The new attractions are similar to ones that have been added to other Six Flags children's areas through the years, and all are very popular.  Most allow parents to ride along with their kids, making them even more popular with guests.

The third new ride will be Daffy Duck Bucket Blasters, what appears to be a single wheel version of Zamperla's Water Mania ride, which just debuted for the first time last year.  The ride lets guests spray one another with water blasts as they spin around and around.  I'm quite pleased to see this ride be added, as it looked like a lot of fun when it opened in Coney Island last year.

The all new Bugs Bunny Boomtown is already well underway, this is just one small part of it but I believe the new entrance area will be located in that dirt eventually.  The new section is slated to open at Six Flags Over Texas this Spring.
