  1. Nothing was sold, the few people that kept saying it was were former employees that had no actual information from what was going on within the park itself.
  2. The HIP decor was loaned to the Island H20 waterpark in Orlando as part of the Night of a Million lights, which is for the Give The Kids the World charity to help give seriously ill children and their families trips to Orlando. After the event is over, Six Flags will be getting their decorations back. Here is more info on the event itself, https://www.gktw.org/lights/
  3. World of Illumination was pretty neat, definitely a new spin on drive through events as the entire display is "Cosmic", it sounds weird but outer space meets christmas was a fun combo, and seeing that many synconized lights was impressive. Holiday Square looked great and had quite a bit of the old HIP stuff. They also had firepits, hot chocolate, funnel cakes, ice cream, and lots of merch including a bunch of HIP merch left over from last year. Overall I though it was pretty fun and the best part was the snow falling from the roof of the front mall and making the whole area look nice with the falling snow.
  4. Hopefully IF HIP ever comes back, all the people saying it was the only reason they bought passes actually show up, and more than once every few years. It is a very expensive event to put on so it needs the attendance numbers to justify keeping it going.
  5. Anyone that went to Fright Fest this year, what were your favorite parts? Anything standout or how it compared to years past.
  6. 2016 was the only year that the lighting was completely contracted out for HIP, Oak Island Creative was the company and they worked with Six Flags staff to install the first year, then in 2017 they just provided some minor guidance and since 2018, Six Flags has done all HIP decor setup in house.
  7. Trying to understand the reasoning behind anything from the current CEO or what's left of corporate is pointless. Once the mentally unstable CEO is removed, hopefully sooner rather than later, we should start seeing a lot of delayed projects continue.
  8. Or perhaps Corporate and the CEO pulled all the money for this project and threaten to fire anyone that works on these "now unapproved" projects.
  9. Its the DVD plus a cast of 10-15 people performing the full show as well on stage with the movie playing behind them.
  10. Here is a very good and accurate post on the current state of the company. Most of the employees are fed up and with the most recent cuts, something has to be done to save what’s left of the company. We are all hoping Selim is removed on Thursday’s call before he causes any more damage. https://screamscape.com/html/corporate_park_news.htm#SixFlags
  11. Anyone else noticing all the old spots that were just mulch getting replaced with nice river rock? The landscaping team is really doing a good job this year trying to make the park look nicer! Also nice to see so much more sod being put in to replace the mulch beds around the park. Looks a lot cleaner.
  12. Drove past the park this morning, you can see part of Cat Woman up and the cranes to finish it off! Looks more impressive up there than I thought it would from the highway.
  13. No they are right, Ron was the Director of Marketing at Six Flags St. Louis until 2016 when he relocated back to SFFT.
  14. What are things people are looking forward to or hoping to see in 2022 at the park?
  15. Unfortunately I think there are going to be a lot of things happening soon that are "hard to believe", based on the direction the new CEO is going. If yesterdays management changes/firings were any indication. Buckle your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride. And my guess is there will be no announcement, it simply won't be added to the calendar next year for our park along with several others.
  16. Or perhaps with maintenance schedules, they had to pull the 2nd train for rehab. They completely disassemble them each off season, and with only a 3 month off season now, I guess they have to pick between 1 train in the winter when there is low attendance, or 1 train in the spring with much higher attendance.
  17. Did anyone notice that along with all the other improvements this year, Boomerang has started to get repainted in recent weeks. It's looking really bright again!
  18. They have only nearly hit capacity once so far, and just because they stop letting people in doesn't mean the park is full. Maybe they closed it earlier due to not having enough staff support a true full capacity night.
  19. Yup! All Six Flags St. Louis employees get into Silver Dollar City, Dollywood, Holiday World, Kentucky Kingdom, and Worlds of Fun for free. Make sure to call ahead as some of them have blackout dates for the park exchange. Plus lots of other stuff like free/discounted shows and attractions in Branson and Meramec Caverns. Most allow at least you and a guest. Lots of good perks to working at Six Flags.
  20. In case anyone is coming out to the park this weekend for fireworks, they start at 9:05 both Saturday and Sunday. Best place to view is the parking lot.
  21. The park is definitely open for FF and HIP. You are probably confusing when the park goes back to weekends only operations around Labor Day. This happens every year. When schools start back the parks go to weekends only.
  22. If anyone watched Fox 2 this morning you may have heard what all that work at Batman is for
