Six Flags Over Texas is an amusement park located in Arlington, Texas, USA. It is the first park built by the Six Flags chain. The park opened on August 1, 1961 following only one year of construction and an initial investment of $10 million by real estate developer Angus G. Wynne, Jr. Since its opening, Six Flags Over Texas has consistently performed well in terms of attendance and revenue, despite its history of ever-changing owners and expansions. Starting in 1991, the park was managed by Time Warner Entertainment. In 1998, Time Warner sold its interests in the Six Flags parks to Premier Parks, which later changed its name to Six Flags Theme Parks, Inc.
