Arlington, TX — This year Six Flags Over Texas is off to a banner start with the opening of Looney Tunes USA, a Texas-sized expansion of the family and children's section themed after the world-famous Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny and friends. It features nine major new rides and attractions offering thrills with appeal to all ages and all extremes.
"We are embarking on a milestone year with our 40th celebration, and the opening of Looney Tunes USA is just one of many great events this year," said Steve Calloway, vice president and general manager at Six Flags Over Texas. "This is a place for kids and their families to experience the best of family rides and attractions."
