ARLINGTON - North Texans have one last chance to enjoy a pair of popular rides at Six Flags Over Texas. After the Labor Day weekend, the park is making room for something “new." Both the Flashback and the Texas Chute Out will shut down.

 

A celebration and dedication are planned on for both rides: the Flashback on Saturday and the Texas Chute Out on Sunday. The Flashback opened in 1989 and the Texas Chute Out, in 1976. Each has seen millions of riders over the years.

 

"Many of our guests have quickly let us known they have so many memories whether they are good, bad, or indifferent,” Sharon Parker, spokeswoman for Six Flags Over Texas, said. “That they can't believe they'll no longer be able to enjoy the rides again, but many of them have taken some solace in the fact that they know there's something big around the corner."

 

Six Flags has not released any details on plans after the two rides are gone. Monday is the last day guests can ride both.
