    Six Flags Fiesta Texas, formerly Fiesta Texas, is a theme park located in La Cantera, San Antonio, Texas. It is owned and operated by Six Flags. The park was built by Gaylord Entertainment Company and opened on March 14, 1992 as the first business in the district of San Antonio. The park was later purchased by Time Warner in 1996, who turned it into a Six Flags park.

    Spanning 200 acres (81 ha), the park was originally built to become a destination performance arts park with its focus on the musical culture of the state of Texas.

    The park’s current icon is Scream which can be seen from all around the park as well as outside the property. The vibrant colors of Scream can also be seen from the intersection of Loop 1604 and Interstate 10, as well as miles away from Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Most of the other attractions at the park are hidden due to the park being surrounded by a rock quarry wall, but some key visible rides include the SkyScreamer, the Crow’s Nest Ferris wheel in Fiesta Bay Boardwalk, the lift hill of Superman: Krypton Coaster and the lift hill of Iron Rattler.

    La Cantera is a master-planned development and district of the City of San Antonio in the U.S. state of Texas, on the city’s Northwest Side. “La Cantera” is Spanish for “the quarry”, in reference to what the district was before USAA turned it to a 178-acre (0.72 km2) mixed-use master-planned development.

    La Cantera is located north of the University of Texas at San Antonio Main Campus and west of the Rim. It lies northwest of an interchange between IH-10 and Loop 1604.

    La Cantera is home to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the largest amusement park in South Texas, and a major shopping center, The Shops at La Cantera. The Shops are anchored by Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Nordstrom. The Shops are located just south of Six Flags Fiesta Texas and next to the future site of Town Center at La Cantera.

    La Cantera is still under development and its focal point, Town Center at La Cantera, is currently being constructed. The Town Center will be a mix of shops, residences, and offices, and it will also link The Shops at La Cantera with Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

    A second retail center is being built in La Cantera, by a joint venture between USAA Real Estate and JLL called La Cantera Heights. It will be located directly to the right of Six Flags Fiesta Texas’ entrance sign on La Cantera Parkway.

    One of San Antonio’s hike-and-bike trails, Leon Creek Greenway, goes through La Cantera but does not yet link to it. A bridge is being built to connect La Cantera to the greenway.

    Security Service Federal Credit Union is based in La Cantera.
