    While thousands of families make the trek to Arlington for a spring break visit to Six Flags Over Texas, the park says it's looking forward to a break from the rain, ice, and snow during one of its busiest times of the year.

    Despite the overcast skies, the soaking splash of the Aquaman ride was the only downpour folks at Six Flags Over Texas had to deal with Tuesday.

    "I was like why not? It's open," said Mahalia Copeland, who rode the water ride. "It was worth it."

    That came as a great relief to park visitors and staff.

    "Words cannot describe how excited we are to actually be open today," said Sharon Parker, spokesperson for Six Flags Over Texas. "We'll take these weather conditions."

    Six days into the 2015 season, weather has already shut down the park three times and forced an early closure once. Now, Mother Nature is finally cooperating as a busy spring break week heats up.

    "It's good to escape the rain and have a good time," said Kenny Miller, who was visiting the park from Mississippi.

    Miller and his group spent the weekend volunteering with Mission Arlington and wanted to cap off their trip to Texas with a visit to the park. They said it ended up being a pretty perfect day.

    "There were no long lines," said Miller.

    Whether there's sunshine in the coming days – or they have to manufacture some of their own – Six Flags says it's looking forward to many more satisfied customers.

    "This is what we're all about," said Parker. "I think a lot of people here in the area are excited that we're open and that they're able to come out and enjoy this time with their family and friends."

    Six Flags will be open every day through March 22 for spring break. Check for specific times.
