Crackaxle Canyon Screampunk District

Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Crackaxle Canyon Screampunk District is a mix of old-school western theming with steampunk theming, which makes it rather interesting to walk through. Some rides and areas ignore the steampunk theming completely, while others embrace it.

Theming aside, however, this land offers some pretty great dining and ride options. The Road Runner Express and the Iron Rattler are some of the most beloved coasters in the park. They also have a couple of rides for the younger kids sprinkled throughout. There is a station for the Fiesta Texas Railroad located here as well, which offers guests rides to the station at the front of the park.

Old Blues Barbecue and Bubba's Cafe are great tops for food in this land, along with Smokehouse Canyon if you're up for a juicy turkey leg. The Thirsty Buffalo Saloon is also a great getaway from the crowds and offers drinks, appetizers, and A/C, a winning trio for sure!

Food & Drinks

Bubba's Cafe
Burgers, Chicken Strips & Wings
Price: $10 - $15
For classic burgers, chicken strips, or even chicken wings, Bubba's Cafe is a solid stop. It's located right on the border of Crackaxle Canyon Screampunk District, so it can get a little busy sometimes. However, the line moves pretty quickly and there are plenty of places to sit and eat nearby. The food is solid -nothing to write home about, but not horrible either.
Smokehouse Canyon
Turkey Legs
Price: $10 - $15
There's something about enjoying a big ol' turkey leg that just completes the theme park experience. The Smokehouse Canyon food cart exists to give us that experience. Each turkey leg is huge and large enough to share as a very filling snack or even a whole meal. Also, the waits are usually never long here.
Chop Six
Chinese/Asian Fast Food
Price: $10 - $15
Chop Six is essentially Six Flags' version of Panda Express, with less options. The food is just okay. It's edible and has some flavor, but, otherwise, it's not great. If you're REALLY craving Panda Express and you can't wait until you leave the theme park, this will probably hold you over. Otherwise, we recommend eating at some of the better restaurants around the park.
Dippin' Dots Cart
Dippin' Dots Ice Cream
Price: $5 - $10
This is a typical Dippin' Dots stand found in every Six Flags park throughout the nation. They have all the usual favorite flavors for everyone to enjoy.
Snacks & Drinks
Price: $5 - $10
An upgraded lemonade stand, this quick food stop offers drinks and snacks while you jump from ride to ride in Crackaxle Canyon. The frozen lemonade, in particular, is a tasty treat for those hot days!
Old Blues Barbecue
BBQ, Sandwiches & Turkey Legs
Price: $10 - $20
This popular eatery is located just outside the entrance to the water park section of Six Flags Fiesta Texas. It features grilled bbq favorites and southern sides, like mac n cheese and potato salad. The portions are decently sized for the price, and they can certainly be shared between two people and still be a satisfying meal.
Thirsty Buffalo Saloon
Drinks & Appetizers
Price: $5 - $10
This classic western saloon is a great spot to escape the summer heat and cool off with a drink. It's dark and cool inside, so it's also a nice escape from the crowds. Most days, it's not very busy inside. They have limited snacks available on the menu as well, although nothing too filling.

This charming railroad takes you around the entire park and offers fantastic views of all the rides and attractions available.

Hop on the train, junior conductors! Foghorn Leghorn’s calling “All aboard!” on this bright, colorful train for tykes that came straight out of a cartoon. Little passengers can find a window seat as this mini three-car choo-choo makes its rounds.
Iron Rattler
Height: 48"
Intensity Level: Wild
The Iron Rattler is a force to be reckoned with and a unique technological marvel, combining a classic wooden support structure with modern track and rails crafted of steel. The main drop is a classic for coaster fans as riders are careened over the edge.
Road Runner Express
Height: 42"
Intensity Level: Mild
Get in on all the hilarious, high-speed action as the Road Runner tears up the coaster rails with Wile E. Coyote in hot pursuit. This family coaster is mild enough for younger kids who don't enjoy high thrills but exciting enough to keep you awake. The line can sometimes get a little long here, but it tends to move pretty quickly.
Yosemite Sam's Wacky Wagons
Height: 36" alone | over 54" w/child
Intensity Level: Relaxing
A classic kiddie ferris wheel ride, this charming experience is great for families with little ones. It's not too high, but still offers a nice view at the top of the nearby park. There's also almost never a line at this ride, so it's a good one to kill some time at while getting off your feet for a moment.
