SAN ANTONIO - The Power Surge, a 25-year-old boat ride at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, will make its final run on Sunday.

According to, park communications director Sydne Purvis said the ride’s retirement is not a safety issue.

“From time to time, we do retire attractions,” Purvis said.

The ride creates a giant splash that washes over onlookers watching from a nearby pedestrian bridge.

It was featured in the 1994 film “Blank Check,” along with the park’s original Rattler wooden roller coaster, which was replaced in 2013.

Purvis said it's still unknown what will become of the old ride, which is nestled in the park on San Antonio's far northwest side.
