This home movie captures a Moore family to Six Flags Over Texas in November 1962. The amusement park opened in Arlington the previous August. After observing an air show, the Moores enjoy several attractions. Taking the camera along for the journey, the footage captures the first-person experience of several original rides, including the Ferrocarril Fiesta Train, Astro-Lift, Chaparral Antique Cars, and Overland Butterfield Stagecoach.
