  1. It definitely needs to be closed until they can figure it out. I agree with people who are saying it's something with the motor based on the sound and the way the one leg is bouncing. The sound matches with a motor turning at least to my ears but then again I'm not an engineer and suck with anything mechanical.
  2. I've wondered about these raft style slides since you're going around the turn at a good speed are the large circles just for cosmetic or do they serve a purpose. I was just wondering because you just zip around one edge of them.
  3. Thanks, will do. My fiancée found a rental cottage near the Zoo so we won't be staying downtown. I went to make reservations for Six Flags and the City Museum but still too far out so I'll check again in May. We're really looking forward to the trip.
  4. My fiancee and myself are planning a long weekend away with the kiddos (all teens) in St. Louis from July 2nd to July 5th. We were planning on doing Six Flags St Louis one day, the Zoo and Aquarium one day, and the City Musuem another day. I was thinking hitting up City Museum on the 5th as we're leaving town but wasn't sure about Six Flags how bad it could be on the 4th of July. I know with the Zoo I've been told to get there before it opens as it's usually busy, any tips for tourists would be appreciated.
  5. Ed Hart would just work on it for a couple of years and then sell it to someone else.
  6. The protesting has pretty much died down, and restaurants are able to open with more capacity, the 9pm closing was related to the governor's restrictions more than the protests but restaurant service is pretty much back to normal operations. There are quite a few good hotels around the park and downtown has some great food places. My fav is Old Spaghetti Factory.
  7. Oh I agree... I did the marathon the last GKTW held at KI and 8 hrs on the racer made me feel like I needed back surgery especially after so many bottom outs on the downside of the bunny hop right after the hill drop. I had a blast though.
  8. He's right you know.... there's a cave that runs under the zoo, i264, and it's huge. It's a year around storage facility that has zip lines, dirt bikes, yearly christmas lights, and is huge!
  9. What would be awesome is a 100 ft tall lift hill to make the FAA happy and then a 200 ft drop with a 100ft of it below ground, might need a chain or launch lift coming back up but that would be awesome, not many coasters if any go 100 ft underground.
  10. That's always been my biggest complaint about the park too, even though I live in L'ville I'd much rather go to Holiday World or Kings Island instead.
  11. yes, the land is owned by the Fair Board. Whoever is managing the park pays a lease to the Fair Board, Six Flags felt the FB was being unfair and that's why the up and closed it. The reason why they didn't announce the Herschend take-over sooner is because it all had to go through governmental approvals beyond the Fair Board as well. I guess this is why the Raptor Coaster plans got scrapped. I've got mixed feelings, Herschend is a great family owned company but at the same time we saw how well things went when Ed sold to Six Flags. I did hear rumors of more events and more special things alrea
  12. There was a campground at some point around 1999 2000ish.. my Dad died in 2001 and one of our last get togethers was at a campground right by KI.... they must have put Great Wolf over top of it. I met him and some other family members there and we rode the tram to the park.
