Today marks a major anniversary for the city's travel and tourism industry, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
It was 25 years ago today, on March 14, 1992, that what was then called 'Fiesta Texas, a Musical Show Park' opened in an abandoned limestone quarry in what was then far northwest Bexar County, far from the reach of the City limit.
Four years later, it became 'Six Flags Fiesta Texas' as it joined the international attractions company, and started adding the rides, water park, and other thrill attractions to go along with the indoor and outdoor performance and theater venues which are still central to the park's attraction.
Since then, Six Flags Fiesta Texas has added entirely new seasonal celebrations, among them the popular 'Fright Fest' and 'Holiday in the Park.'
Like many modern theme parks, Six Flags Fiesta Texas has also gone from a summertime attraction to nearly a year round designation.
In fact, just next week, Six Flags Fiesta Texas will unveil its new Mardi Gras Festival, complete with daily parade and Cajun cuisine. Later th s summer, America's first 'Rocket Blast,' water coaster, 'Thunder Rapids,' will join the lineup of attractions.
