No tourists will be on this ride at Six Flags in Arlington, Texas, anytime soon. Parts of this popular visitor’s attraction was flooded.

A destructive, catastrophic flash flood hit a stretch of the Blanco River in and near Wimberley, Texas overnight Saturday night into early Sunday morning, and is now moving downstream into the San Marcos River this morning. At least 350 homes flooded and numerous water rescues are ongoing.

Major flash flooding has also lead to water rescues and numerous roads closed in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro, including Arlington and Grand Prairie, as well as Johnson and Ellis Counties.

Widespread flash flooding continues across parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and western Arkansas as torrential rains once again fall on a region that has seen extremely heavy rainfall over the past three weeks.

eTN received a response from a spokesperson of the park. It says:
“The park opened at noon. There were a few areas affected and our team iscontinuing the cleanup process. We look forward to welcoming our guests, some of whom were already here when we opened our gates at noon.”
