  1. As someone who can’t do too much spinning, I look forward to hearing what people think of Xcalibur’s return. It’s definitely a nice sight to see. And yes, lifeguards hired in before the 25th at least get a $100 signing bonus with the park also paying for all licensing fees. They have some radio ads going on for it as well, but if you know someone interested, encourage them to submit their application ASAP!
  2. The park has all new internships opportunities currently posted that are new this year, which is in addition a cornucopia of other positions available (including a couple full-time salaried roles). The full list of current openings can be found at www.SixFlagsJobs.com.
  3. My main job being located outside of the theme park in HR, I always look forward to physics days at SFSL, because they mean I get to help out in the park working either JLBM or the park's Intamin drop tower. The park does some cool educational things too like helping the students strap special force-measuring instruments into rides like Mr. Freeze to collect data prior to opening it up for the students to ride themselves. Not sure how many other parks still do, but SFSL at least still has a handful of special Physics days during the week in the Spring.
  4. Just a quick reminder that the park is open tonight from 6 PM to 11 PM. In the past when they’ve done these August Friday nights, they’ve been some of the best times if you want to come and get plenty of rides in.
  5. One interesting program that hasn't been as widely publicized is the introduction of a Saudi-sponsored scholarship program to send students to hospitality management school in Florida with Six Flags then providing a myriad of internship opportunities in order to create a strong Qiddiya leadership team. I think it's a great idea for the park! (Article Here) It'll be interesting to see how the tourism industry continues to grow in that region, and the licensing fees Six Flags receives from the international parks division will only lead to a stronger company domestically, which is something all enthusiasts should get excited for!
  6. Great trip report! I'd definitely echo another commenter who made a remark on how you bring positivity to your TRs even if things don't go perfectly. Back in March during their busy weekday operation for spring break, I had the fantastic opportunity to spend five days working at the park. Learning how to operate Scream and Batman was a ton of fun, and I think SFFT is hands down the most beautiful of the SF parks. Being from STL, it was cool running into Ron on my way to grab lunch; with his experience at Astroworld, SFSL, and SFFT, he's always interesting to talk to. Thank you for raising money for a great cause and for posting that huge photo trip report!
  7. Don’t remember exactly who (sorry to whoever it was but thanks for the pics EDIT: that would be Danrarbc), but someone had posted a pic wondering what the spot lights outside Colossus were for, since the ride already has a lighting package. Well, here is what that was for: Quite the blue-tiful sight, don’t ya think? Also, the Boss not being renamed and SFNE having to pay up on their end of the deal (followed by SFDK having to make good on their bet too) is one of the best parts of the Blues win, in my opinion. With a country who loves a good underdog story, even the company behind the universally-popular Skycoaster brand extended their congratulations, albeit in their own appropriate way: To be completely honest, I’d have to say that out of the arches in St. Louis, mine are still probably the Golden Arches. (I’m a sucker for an Oreo McFlurry)
  8. ^Very happy to hear you enjoyed your trip! Just a quick clarification re: Log Flume. There is no “abandoned” side. Both have been running this season; however, unlike when the park opened in 1971, there isn’t always enough demand to have both running. And when it comes to why they chose the side to open that they did: That’s the only side that has wheelchair access to the dock, as the other side in not accessible without using the bridges/steps in the standby queue. Again though, glad to hear you had fun and enjoyed Supergirl! American Thunder is one of my favorites too; it’s just plain fun with great reridability.
  9. It's about time you made your monthly post. Especially with it being a post that isn’t just plugging SixFlagsJobs.com
  10. JimH2K: First, welcome! And second, thank you for that trip report from your visit Sunday. I’m glad you had a good visit and glad I’m not the only one that appreciates Spinsanity. Those tornado sirens were crazy, especially with the siren being right next to me. Fortunately, the park was never in an area that was under any kind of warning. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep St. Louis County from sounding it for a few minutes anyway. Next time you come to the park, please give us another TR!
  11. Speaking of weekdays...don’t forget the Park is open tonight from 6 to 11! Last year the August Fridays were some of the best days to visit! (Make sure to stop by JLBM.) I’m looking forward to the new ride. I don’t see the 24 passenger version a bad thing. I think having nothing below you or on either side of you will make the ride even more thrilling! Also, the renderings looks like there will be some signs in the queue with information or comics about Supergirl similar to what I saw in the queue for Harley Quinn at SFNE. Either way, I’m excited to have something in that spot again.
  12. Dave is a special guy, but I’m happy for him. I talked to him today. He’s legitimately happy and enjoying a well deserved retirement. I’m excited because in the next week or two he’s going to bring me a bunch of his old Looney Tunes & DC ties he would wear. He’s just happy that they’ll be used again. Then on Tuesday, I get to visit Six Flags New England, which should be fun. In other news, the first Fright Fest auditions are taking place this weekend, so if you or anyone you know is interested, head on over to www.sixflagsjobs.com. More audition info is available on the regular www.sixflags.com/stlouis.
  13. This morning I got to see some of the July Fourth Fest stuff for the first time this year. Compared to previous years, they amped up the event like crazy! DC Comics Plaza is full of all kinds of fun promotions, special food items, a Schafly beer truck/tent (Prozach, you might want to come), and other things. The most impressive part though might be all of the red, white, and blue decorations. They include the JLBM outdoor queue fence, lots of bunting and signs on the train trestle there, and every lamp post wrapped in garland. Then the Palace Theater looks really nice with its red, white, and blue flags (which will soon be traded for green, purple, and yellow in sure). They also have had live music, foam parties, and my favorite part, the nightly fireworks display. In the past, I always thought that what they did for the July Fourth Fest still made it a great event, but they really did a great job at improving an already solid event this year.
  14. I wanted to share my favorite “version” of this news story. It’s quite possibly my favorite headline ever, and it includes the line, “No, it isn’t duck season.” https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/sufferin-succotash-daffy-duck-attacked-at-six-flags-in-eureka/article_3fe44106-f49e-5124-8dc0-d849f1a31959.html
