The t64 season at Six Flags Over Texas closed on a some-
what dismal note. The attendance, 17 hundred and 73,
might be considered a large crowd by Texas League stand-
ards, but it's way below average for Six Flags. Over the
whole season, however, the park set a new attendance re-
cord for the third straight year. The final figure is
one million, 613 thousand, a gain of 177 thousand over
last year. People from every state in the union visited
Six Flags and rode everything from cars to astro-lifts
to hollowed-out logs. During the park's first seasons
in 1961, the attendance was 564 thousand. Nearly three
times that M through the gates this year.
About 14 hundred college students worked at the park
this season, having a whale of a good time and earning
almost two million dollars in the process. Most will be
back next year.
