The "Fiesta Train"
I crossed Mexico by train several years later. This is not what trains in Mexico looked like.
Also, the Mexican countryside was more picturesque and a little less surreal.
You don't hear the term "Quick Justice" or "Gay Animation" in Texas much these days.
An arial view of Six Flags and the surrounding area. This photo shows you what the area looked like before Arlington grew
(and then was bullldozed to make way for the Cowboys' new stadium).
A Confederate Drill team paying homage to southerners taking up arms against their country.
Skull rock -- "full of adventure."
A shootout intended to reflect life in the Republic of Texas.
Not a lot of African-American tourists look to re-live the fun of Confederate life.
A stagecoach ride. I don't know why they thought "Butterfield" made it sound authenic.
The Crazy Horse Saloon. One of the original parts of Six Flags still operating in 2011.
Today, bored tourists wander in and out during the show.
I don't know what happened to common courtesy.
The "Starr" mall featuring the promised "Six Flags."
Fireworks over a fake mission.
Nothing says authentic Spanish mission like fireworks.
The canopies near the entrance.
Basically, a place where the odds of surviving heat stroke were increased.
