  1. I don't cry... seriously...

     

    However, I'm still upset that Mr. Freeze was gimmicked and turned backwards. It was one of my favorite roller coasters ever in its raw form.

     

    I was kinda dissapointed when it fel like the launch was tonned down on the SFoT version, or at least that's how it felt.

     

    I have to go with the thought of Astroworld being closed 9 years ago. Last time I went was in 96, before I got over my fear of looping coasters or enjoying them. I only had viper, so missed out on greezed lightning, ultra twister, and batman, plus the additions since 96. I can't forget my favorites either XLR-8 and texas cyclone.

  2. You're talking about a massive expensive coaster. Not many have been built in the US and Cedar Fair has been utilizing B&M for their major coaster projects lately. I love Cedar Fair, but that's not the type of innovation you see on this side of the ocean. Especially from a corporate park like WoF, at least lately. Even if Cedar Fair did go that route, I doubt you would see the new cutting edge roller coaster pop up in Kansas City. You'll likely get something already proven that is marketable and reliable.

    And that is unfortuante if it becomes true. WoF could use a great, cutting edge ride. It will pull locals into the park plus attract non locals as well. If they have a good ride, it will work out for them. Simple enough.

  3. Here's a new topic of discussion! How does your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/whatever deal with your coaster loving? My husband loves them just as much as I do, but he prefers inversions to non inverting coasters, and also gets headaches fairly easy. We have to take our time throughout the day. Y'all?

  4. I went to the park for the first time on saturday, and I was rather pleased. Rode everything except pandimonium, but not really too worried about it. Was surprised at some things though. For instance, I was used to the queue for Mr. Freeze at SFoT, and was confused as to why the majority of the line for the one in St Louis was mostly outside. A little dissapointed in one train opps for American Thunder and The Boss, especially since it took almost 45 minutes to get on. The day started overcast but decent, and started raining on us while waiting for AT. Still rode it in decent rain, which is always fun, and then headed over to The Boss for the final ride of the day, also in the rain. Overall I enjoyed the park, but I did feel that it was lacking some things, namely a signiture coaster. I think a hyper of some sort would work well for the park.

  5. Having rode the Boss for the first time this weekend, I owuld say that it would be nice to add some elements to the ride, as it was pretty decent, but seemed to lack a certain je ne sais pas. It just seemed to pitter out too early. I also feel that while the park was nice, it lacked a real signiture ride, and I think that if they decided to treat the boss, it could very well become Six Flags St Louis' signiture ride.
