Today Six Flags over Texas in Arlington, TX announced via their website two larger attractions will close Labor Day Weekend.
The Flashback roller coaster and the neighboring Texas Chute Out parachute drop ride will be removed from the park at the end of this season. Six Flags over Texas is inviting riders to get their final rides on the two attractions.
Texas Chute Out was installed in the park in 1976. It is an Intamin parachute drop based on the red Coney Island parachute drop model. More than 29 million riders have dropped the 200 feet on the ride. The ride originally had baskets which were replaced in the 1994 by chairs. Riders young and old have enjoyed the view the ride offered.
Flashback is a Vekoma boomerang coaster that was installed in 1989. It allowed 17 million riders over its seasons at the park to go forward and reverse through its three inversion boomerang course.
The last day for both attractions at Six Flags Over Texas is Monday, September 3.
