ARLINGTON — You might soon get a cold one after getting on the Superman ride.

A state judge issued an opinion Friday recommending Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor be allowed to sell alcohol.

Opponents, including the Arlington mayor, say combining thrill rides and alcohol could lead to hazardous conditions at the park.

A park spokeswoman says many guests have requested the service and hopes to have beer on tap by February 28th.

The state still has to approve the liquor license.

I predict that this will take care of itself. Think about it,hot summer in Texas...lunch and a beer or two...then get on a ride that goes round and round or up and down. Well you get the picture.
Six flags will pay more for cleanup than they will ever make selling beer.

I am very sorry to learn that 6 Flags has applied and received a liquor license. Alcohol is a destroyer of family and is rarely recognized as such. I know many people partake and do not see the harm. That is the point. It is deceitful. It is best said like this "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise". This truth is true without all believing it. This is a very disappointing decision to see alcohol will be served at 6 Flags. As for me and my house I will choose to protect my family from the ill of alcohol and its deceitful works. We have been long time season pass holders. We will not be renewing. Our precious entertainment dollars will be spent elsewhere.

You must be the idiot who came on the local news and cited the same bible verse during the "Keep Whitehouse Dry" campaign. No one cares what you believe or what you practice in your home. If you want to be in public, you will have to tolerate what the citizens of Arlington want. If you don't like alcohol, don't buy it, and if you don't want to see alcohol, don't go where it is sold. Stay inside your bullcrap little Smith County bubble and live in oblivion forever!

I think it will be funner with alcohol in the mix! ;)

Shame on Six Flags for attempting to "sell out" our children. "For-profit-without-regard-for consequences" is the reason the USA is in its current state. We have an obligation to protect our children at all costs and Six Flags was one of the few places that maintained a family environment. Read the stats on under-aged drinking and the horrors of DUI and alcohol addiction; it ought to scare you back to common sense.

I bring students to Six Flags every year and I'm not the only one. How many schools and church groups stop coming? I have already received an email from a fellow teacher voicing concern.

They better have a limit program of some kind.

That is not right to sell beer around a FAMILY park.I hope this does not pass.
