Six Flags

Case Study: Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Overview

Six Flags Entertainment is the world’s largest amusement-park based corporation (based on properties). Six Flags Fiesta Texas is a 224-acre theme/water park located in San Antonio, Texas.

Challenges

The new Tornado ride was experiencing unsightly limescale deposit formation inside the “funnel” where the water was flowing. This was greatly restricting the water flow rate thus affecting the overall enjoyment of the ride. Considerable labor costs, chemicals and downtime were involved to keep the ride scale-free.

Solution

An old SB-XX model was installed on the 3” water line going to the ride which included an 18,000 gallon pool.

Installed

August 8, 2011

Outcome

The limescale has stopped forming where the water flows, allowing the water park ride to enjoy normal flow rates without all the labor, chemicals and downtime.
