  1. A few days ago we overheard one of the managerial supervisors talking with one of the maintenance guys about them having seen the plans for a "big new ride" that was going in next year(?) and that Tidal Wave was going to close after this season and removed in order to make room for it. When asked if it was a roller coaster or not, they went stone faced and replied that they "Weren't at liberty to say". Interpret that how you wish, but the general tone around the park was that Tidal Wave is indeed on the short list to go soon.

     

    Funny thing actually, I actually had really taken this with a grain of salt, but there were a few guests today behind me in the overflow queue line for JL:BFM that were on the subject of superheroes discussing different things and then eventually (this seriously got my attention, being someone whos not big on rumors)one of the guys was talking about how they somehow heard that that 4D Free Fly coaster in the survey we all took (well, some of us if you're on the E-mail mailing list) would be coming to St Louis, and would be themed after DC's Green Lantern apparently? I dont believe it that much still, as they could have been full of crap but theres that possibility and it seemed like they could have been in the loop of things one way or another. Still, take it with a grain of salt, but it's curious to have a recurring rumor like that. Im just wondering, if it is true, where it would go? Around this time last year is when the park issued out the statement that Scooby Doo would be replaced, and had it advertised to get your last ride, so if it is true (and it still could be a bunch of nonsense), it doesnt seem Tidal Wave is being removed as quickly as I had thought, and it's obvious now that Ninja could stay for possibly another 3-5 years because even today it was eating up crowds. Take it all as you will, but weve only got about a month and a half until 2016 announcements! If something is leaving, expect signs to pop up soon.

     

    hhmm, i saw a youtube video of the one at magic mountain and it doesnt seem like anything special. Maybe since its small.

  2. Called SFStl today and they mentioned discount on Coke cans of $8 per ticket. Anything better other than a potential Club TPR discount (don't visit enough parks annually to be worthwhile for me, although appears to be a great program). Going less than 2 weeks!

     

    If you go with, or know four people that want to go, the "four or more gold pass" is actually a pretty good deal. Comes out to $88 per person.

  3. If we where getting a coaster wouldn't there already be noticeable evidence? Survey markers of some sort? I find it hard to imagine. I'm thinking a slide or a looper this year.

    There was a survery posted, but I dont think was specifically for SFSL, but it was for a coaster.

    Survey as in land surveying, not an online questionnaire to gain the public's opinion.

    However, when I clicked the actual link, its a different one.

  4. Someone mentioned a while back that Ninja is staying for a bit longer. It still draws a crowd I believe was the reason and having visited more then a few times (held season passes there for around 5 years part of those while in Colorado) I can say that is very true. Personally I never found it bad minus the head banger as you exit the sidewinder. To each their own.

     

    Probably draws a crowd as there's almost no wait, at least when I've been there. Persinally, id like something new.

  5. Planning to be at the park on Wednesday, 7/23. Do you think I'll have issues getting on everything I want to ride assuming no flash pass and there for ~9 hours?

     

    Based on looking at the website, am thinking:

     

    Definitely Want to Ride/do:

    Boomerang

    Boss

    Eat twice for ~15 mins

    Justice League: Battle for Metropolis

    Mr. Freeze (Reverse Blast)

    Ninja

    Screamin' Eagle

    Superman Tower of Power

    Tidal Wave

    Xcalibur

     

    Probably Want to Ride:

    American Thunder

    Batman the Ride (we have one at Great Adventure)

    Colossus

    Highland Fling

    Log Flume

    River King Mine Train

    Rush Street Flyer

    Skyscreamer (have one at Great Adventure)

    The Joker

     

    No flash passes need unless you want multiple ride on JLBFM. It seems to be having hour long waits when its open.

     

    You should be able to do everything and plenty of re- rides.

     

    This. When I went almost two weeks ago, the waits were at the most, 20 minutes. If the Justice League ride works when you go, that'll be the longest wait.

  6. Been at the park all day and they've had trouble with JLBFM all day

     

    I took my Nephew out there Friday. We were first in line at JLBFM at 10:30 only to be told it would open "later". I think it finally opened around 12:30. We waited about 30 minutes for it (loading is still a big issue). In the first scene our guns weren't working as they only had the red dots like the old Scooby ride. They eventually began working, though.

     

    I sure wish they would fix this and have it actually open when the park does.

     

    Yeah, when I went, I wasnt surprised that it wasnt working, but I wasnt upset, as I have a season pass. However, I would have preferred them to delay it opening until it was completely bug free.

  7. Take this survey to reveal, at-the-moment, our current consideration for next year. I have no clue where it'll be.

    Repeat for other parks. It works everywhere, but I'd take it that the ride is being considered for mass cloning. All the other surveys (even SFFT and SFMM *wtf*) are considering 4D Free Spins, so we should see a few pop up in 2016.

     

    Kudos to NickLikesCoasters over at the SFGADv Discussion Thread.

     

    Select RPM as your favorite name for my selfish reasons!

     

    Just took it and Im generally very interested in having it. Ive done probably three surveys, one being a dark ride, thrill ride, and something, I think with the way season passes are handled. So far two of them have happened.

  8. Gold pass questions:

    Im thinking of getting the four pack, but the fourth person probably wouldnt go. Instead, it would be her kids with someone else. Can one of the kids use it?

    As far as processing them, how do four different people do it if they don't all go together?

    Go to this website: https://www.sixflags.com/stlouis/plan-your-visit/contact-us

     

    Basically paste that comment into a web comment but put "For Josh" at the beginning. I'll get back to you ASAP, and that way I can answer any other questions that might come up (and I'll be on the clock so it's not as sketchy).

     

    Prozach's posts really haven't been negative at all in months.

    I agree. Prozach has actually been, dare I say it, a really constructive member recently. We all know he doesn't like dark rides. However, I see his posts as just being realistic in a lot of ways. Now as Woodie Warrior mentioned, why are people comparing this to Universal rides? Who would have suggested such a comparison?....oh wait....but I do still stand (well, technically sit) by that comparison.

     

    Done. I sent it last night to the 'season pass' one too.

  9. Today I learned about some of the improments for this season. I believe HWfan already mentioned it but the biometric scanners are getting a software upgrade that should help with processing. The Palace should be getting painted. This off season the mechanics were allowed to take over a greenhouse at the park giving them more space to work, which we hope means that they will be able to get more roller coasters up to two trains quicker. The Moon Cars and the Looney Tooter both got painted. Mr. Freeze is getting some adjustments to help eliminate down time. I also learned some details about Justice League but I won't give those out (I'm sure the park will reveal them soon or maybe they will be a surprise) and based on these details this ride is going to be awesome and everyone should ride it once, even if you dont like dark rides. The height requirement is still being determined and will be announced later.

     

    The 2015 season is shaping up to be one of our best seasons yet and I hope to see you guys in the park.

     

    Yeah, I was hoping theyd do something to Mr Freeze, as it screwed up both times I was there. I wonder if JL will be anything like that Transformers ride, as I watched it on youtube, and it was badass.

  10. When I went last year, back in September, didn't even realize that the sunday I went was BAF which obviously made it a bad day to go, but the next sunday wasnt so bad. As far as Scooby Doo, while it was fun, it was definetely outdated and to me, felt out of place. Only bad thing is the new ride will have a huge line and knowing Mr.Freeze, it'll be shut down, since it was the alternative last year.

  11. When is the best time to visit the park? I want to go early in the season. Do they open right at Spring Break? I want to avoid that at all costs.

     

    The first weekend of April, aka, Easter. I tried to look at the hours, but it wasn't working, but I think theyre only open on weekends in April-may, with full hours in summer. I think the best days to go would be on a sunday, as kids have school the next day.

  12. SFSTL is scheduled to open on 04/03/2015. Although there is so much variance that applies to this question I have to ask it. How busy does SFSTL get on opening day/weekend? I went last year in late June and the lines were very short. NOTHING like my home SF park SFGA.

     

    I just want to get an idea if it's worth it to drive nearly 6 hours to SFSTL on opening weekend or not.

     

    Has anybody here every gone on opening day to SFSTL? If so please describe the experience

     

    I bet itll be pretty crowded as it's Easter weekend. But yeah, it mainly depends on the weather. That time of year is kinda tricky, as it can feel really springlike, yet there have been times when it's snowed.

  13.  

    Stay safe, and we really appreciate your service. Being at SLU Monday night, I was very thankful for everyone keeping us safe. Even the dozen federal police living in the Federal Courthouse in E.STL where my mom works are much appreciated. Coasters aside, stay warm, and I'm supporting you all.

     

    Thanks, man. Luckily all has been quiet on my side of the river, so far.

    There was only one incident in ESL, that wasnt much of anything. Everything else was just false rumors.

  15. Hey guys.

    First post here. My family just got a season pass after realizing how much we'd save over paying each time.

    I have a couple of questions.

    We hit Fright Fest on the rainy Friday night a few weeks ago. Not a lot of people there and it was our first time. We planned to go back on Halloween night. Are the crowds going to be ridiculous that night? Our 9 year old want to wear her costume. Will there be other wearing them that night? Trick or Treating, etc. I know it's all guessing at this point.

    Second, we are looking at adding on the meal plan. DO you guys do this and do you think it's worth it?

    Third, we are a family of 3. Since they don't check kids fingerprints would it work to buy a 4th season pass and she can invite different friends to use it?

    Just some questions we were wondering about.

    Thanks! This looks like a great forum.

     

    Meal plan- for 3 of you, its probably around 45 each meal, though I personally hardly eat there as it's expensive and don't want to get sick. But, obviously worth it if you go at least 4 times.

    Season pass- I think it'll work for anyone, as long as they have the pass, since they just scan the bar code after the first visit, though there is the Bring a Friend day(I learned the hard way that that's one of the worst times to go).

  16. I'm planning on visiting the park on Saturday, October 18. Do any of you guys know what to expect in regards to line lengths for the rides? I typically visit the park in September and the lines aren't usually that bad. Is a Flash Pass in order?

     

    If there's families, I would imagine that most of them would be leaving by 10 pm. I went there a few Sundays ago and by 4:30, there wasnt any wait for some of the rides. Only big wait I had was Mr Freeze, but that was due to technical issues.
