On August 1, 1961, Six Flags opens in Arlington, Texas. The novel theme park of rides and attractions includes log flume, mine trains, parachute drop, 360 degree roller coaster, and river rapids. Named after the six flags flown at different times over the state (France, Spain, Mexico, the Confederacy, Texas, and the United States), it is designed to reflect the history of Texas under these governments and provide a thrilling form of entertainment for people of all ages. Six Flags grew to become the world's largest regional theme park company, with 30 theme, water, and zoological parks in North America today.
