 On this date 53 years ago, fans of amusement parks flocked to the new Six Flags Over Texas. It was the first park in the Six Flags chain, and history.com says it pioneered something you find in most amusement parks now.




Today's Stumper is:
What did Six Flags Over Texas pioneer in the amusement park industry?

1. All-inclusive admission price
2. Water park rides
3. Multiple roller coasters



The answer is all-inclusive admission price. On this day in 1961, amusement park lovers flocked to the new Six Flags Over Texas.  History.com says this park in Arlington, Texas was also the first park to have the log flume and mine train rides and later, the first 360-degree looping roller coaster. The website says this Six Flags franchise also pioneered the concept of the all-inclusive admission price.  Before this, separate entrance fees and individual ride tickets were the standard in amusement parks.

Josh's Midday Friday Update!

9 PM Friday, August 1st, 2014

   Other than a few isolated showers or downpours, tonight will be quiet. Temperatures will fall into the lower 60s under partly cloudy skies.

   Unsettled weather lingers into our weekend. A slow moving trough of low pressure will be in the region tomorrow, and that will induce the development of scattered showers and thunderstorms anytime after 9am.  Coverage will be a bit higher on Saturday - near 50% or so. The rainfall threat decreases significantly, if not all together, for Sunday.  Highs this weekend will be in the low to mid 80's with lows dropping into the low 60's.

   The next work week will be hotter, with high temperatures reaching the upper 80s by late-week.
