Scream at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, Texas opened on March 13, 1999, in the Rockville section of the park. It first opened with two towers, then on May 28, 1999, the third tower opened.[1] It was the very first combo tower from S&S Power, combining the ride actions of both a Turbo Drop and Space Shot in one ride cycle.[2]
