Six Flags Over Texas, in the second day of the two day public hearing to decide the fate of the highly contested liquor license application, detailed plans for selling alcohol on park grounds. With the close of this day's hearing, Judge Tanya Cooper will have 60 days to come to a ruling.

Alcohol will be sold at six locations within Six Flags Over Texas: All American Cafe, Casa de la Banderas, Dry Hole Charlie's, Gator McGee's Mountain Grill, Johnny Rockets and Papa John's. Six Flags officials stated alcohol will be sold in clear plastic cups, clearly distinguishable from the Coca-Cola-branded cups used for the non-alcoholic beverages. Alcohol will also be sold at catering locations and has always been provided as an option for private catered events. Park executives maintain they will prohibit the sale of alcohol on days opened specifically for student activities.

If granted, the permit will also allow Six Flags to sell alcohol in Hurricane Harbor. Sales in this park will be limited to four restaurants and two drink carts located near each the wave and activity pools.

"We’ve taken all the comments into account as we made our application, and we have taken steps to address the issues and concerns," said Bill Pugh, director of in-park services. "We believe the plans we put in place . . . will take care of our guests in a safe and secure environment."
