This 1960s home movie captures the Holt family enjoying the day at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. At the time, Six Flags consisted of eight sections: Star Mall, Spain, France, Mexico, Texas, USA, the Confederacy (now known as the Old South), and Boomtown. The film features attractions from all over the park, many of which are no longer in operation. Some of these include the Astro Lift, Skull Island, Caddo War Canoes, Los Cocheses Cabras Goat Cart, and the Ferrocarril Fiesta Train.
