Ride the Rails with a Gust of Steam!
What’s the classiest way to get around? By steam engine of course! All aboard at Texas Depot, in the neighborhood we call Texas, for the Six Flags Railroad, the classic steam engine train ride that’s been running in the park for more than five decades.
Consult with the train scheduler at Texas Depot. He’s busy sending telegrams by Morse code, but he’ll definitely make time to find you a route. There’s one leaving for Boomtown soon, so get ready to take a ride deep into the wild Texas frontier.
Your train is departing for a relaxed-pace, scenic ride through the park. You’ll pass through a hobo shanty town, complete with our resident hobo taking a bath in a barrel. There are teepees and wild animals along the route, and even some dancing tamales! Feel the breeze on a journey paced slow enough to let you enjoy the sights on the comfy wide-bench seats of the train.
Check out the steam engine design of the engine car, with a wide grille and classic locomotive wheels. It looks authentic because it is! You’re riding on a working steam engine built more than a century ago. Obviously, these beautiful trains were built to last!
