  1. Hey, I'm not as much as a board "regular" in terms of posting or socializing. (Imagine me the kid in the back of a classroom that hides behind everyone else because his life sucks.) Totally kidding, but really, not many of you would recgonize my username from way back when...but in fact, I browse the site quite more than often. Lately, I've been browsing through my pictures and I randomly came across ones that I took at Six Flags last summer, but the majority of them were from Hurricane Harbor. To be honest, Hurricane Harobr isn't that big of a water park but it does have a nice atmosphere and is quite the getaway from the midwestern humidity. Yadda Yadda...here are the pictures. Enjoy! *Edit - Yell at me if the pictures are too big. Me looking undoubtfully sexy all wet and with burning eyes due to excessive amounts of water. (Blue shirt) Thanks for reading. There she goes... Remnents of the old Spain theming in DC Comics Plaza. Villain's Cafe is one of my favorite places to eat here because it sells mostly mexican food. Excalibur Mr. Freeze before it was painted the darker shade of blue. Colossus now has LED lights surrounding the framework which will most likely create a giant clock like it used to. The coaster interacts nicely with the pathways and the Moon Cars literally drive through this turnaround section. This guy has endured a mass amount of pain throughout his life. Skidmark. Last year's new coaster, Evel Knievel. The most exciting part of the lazy river. The 2 slides on the left are half enclosed and half open. The 2 fully enclosed slides. The sign colors indicate which slide is named what...excluding Stingray where the lettering is the slide color. The family raft slide with plenty of OH S&!T moments. Crabs? Check. (scenery along the lazy river) Wahoo Racers was added this year to the left of this slide tower. Standing there just looking sexy in the sun. Oh, and then there's Tornado and the long lines behind her. It's a standard edition, including the wait that is not worth the spin and drop. New back in 2005. Otherwise known as backbreakers. At this point of the day, I think I've seen enough of a fair share of middle-aged women. Hmmm...what could these contraptions be? Despite lack of shade in some areas, HH does have a rather nice atmosphere. ...even closer. It's a shame that half the gadgets on there don't even work anymore. More theming plus Hook's Lagoon. The waterfall adds to the atmosphere alot. And yes, there are lifeguards every 10 feet on both sides of the wave pool. This tiny stage was set up between all the chairs by the wave pool and they played music for awhile. It was more exotic sounding than a usual drumline, though. Wave pool with (rarely) active volcano. When the park first opened, the volcano used to steam from the top and make eruption noises from time to time. I see double C's. Cafe and crowds. Look, it's Batman! Again, but with a better sign. Gift shop plus swimwear. Love this shot. *Insert music* Duh duh....duh duh..... *pause* Am I seeing a reference here? Wooooo, every park has got to have one of these. Theming heading to HH. This boat has seen better days, but the battered-up look pretty much compliments the name of the water park itself. First sign, rule #3. The entrance to HH is just to the right after you walk into the park. Nice little entry plaza. By the way, I've always wanted an all-american umbrella for.....the sun? That works. I love the setting of this park. Notice Evel Knievel's lift on the left.
  2. Haha, I love the City Museum. I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that they even have an aquarium on the 2nd floor of the museum and there's a shark tank and they have a small (see-through) tube that you can crawl through to see the sharks under the water one on one. Their Sting rays are pretty freaky though because they frequently jump out of the water.
  3. The Boss and Screamin' Eagle are both getting extensive retracking in parts of the rides at SFSTL. Also, parts from Mega Zeph's cars from SFNO are being added to replace old parts on the current cars.
  4. Hah, the Yankees? Good lord. Mr. Pujols does all his work on his own and so does Ankiel...great players. Go Cardinals!
  5. Actually, at SFSTL on our S:TOP...when the ride reopened after the long closure, lines exceeded half an hour to an hour at the least on most days. The ride is still a popular one here.
  6. It's possible because both Screamin' Eagle and the Boss are getting some parts retracked and fixed up over the off season. Possibly some more paint(?)
  7. Yeah, I was about to say, didn't daylight savings time get pushed back to next Sunday? That's what I think...
  8. The moon cars are indeed staying the same location that were once before. The track is going to get rerouted around and through Evel Knievel...There are going to be some great photo oppurtunites for this coaster with the log flume, Moon cars, train and the pathway all being around the new coaster.
  9. That's too bad, I hope there are plans to add something in its place for next year. I'm surprised that Mr.Freeze hasn't caused much trouble since its opening. Shocking actually compared to Chiller.
  10. Actually, I've heard that the coaster is NOT wooden at all. So I think any wooden clone is out of the question.
  11. Haha, reminds me of the movie Footloose...small midwestern town, no loud music except that in the movie it's dancing but whatever.
  12. Yup, it's true. The whole area seems like it is going to get redone and whether it's wood or steel...it's going to be unique from what I've heard. Moon Cars are in fact being removed BUT they're going to come back somewhere else for the 2008 season.
  13. Closest city for me is St.Louis...about 25 min. to SFSTL.
  14. Fenway seems like a nice "old-style" park... ...not like the crappy Wrigley Field - Home of the C...ompletely U...seless B...y S...eptember GO CARDS!!!
  15. Hah, I for sure never noticed that. I think I was in shock also over the length of the line even though we were warned by a ride-op at the entrance that the wait would be 2 hours...but I just had to see if it were so. And yeah, it was. And for whoever who asked about the lines for Tony Hawk...the whole queue gets filled up and sometimes spills out onto the pathway. Basically about an 1 and a half to 2 hour wait...and that's with about 6 cars running. *Hurricane Harbor PTR is coming up either tomorrow or Thursday.*
  16. Thanks for all of the comments. Now that I think about it, I didn't even ride any flats when I was there. I mostly either waited for a coaster, took pictures, or sat around because it was too hot.
  17. Update #2... Here's some more from the day... nk you for visiting SFSTL. Thanks for reading. Yeah, we're tired. He's a big loner at least I look good while jumping arrgghhh... Statue cleavage! Someone's gonna have to repair that wall... 6-pack Batman theming in a gift shop I'm an immature 8 year old brat trapped in a 17 year old body. I think I can do that... A couple of these water hoses were running in certain locations throughout the park. They felt pretty good. Side view of non-racing Colossus.
  18. If you read, I said that the pictures would be coming on today because yesterday I didn't have any time. Hopefully these will make anyone change their view on this park. 1st Cone Ice Cream parlor is delicious... ***Part 2 is below*** same with Clayton TAZ! Bugs high-5ing kids Man, characters were everywhere! He was standing on a palm tree pot. ...and the aftermath. ICEE break... He was dancing. pizza and Colossus Flash Whoa...Wonder Woman looking all shiny! Clayton (friend) with Shaggy check us out thin river splish splash Both sides were running. Log Flume original Freeze colors What the hell? 2 hour line? No way am I waiting in that! No factory tours either... Who said we don't have any theming? No Scooby-Doo today...line was too long. Non-racing Colossus D.C. overview Xcalibur spinning close by Beat this Fiesta Texas! more of the ramp Beginning of the ramp section. most of the layout the pathway goes under and between the track which provides GREAT photo ops. Best pathway ever! waiting in line for Big Spin 2 cars in one shot spin mechanism twisty goodness! I wonder what would happen if I went beyond this point? For all of those under the station fetish people... The queue goes under the brakes! Big Spin's station Info on Tony throughout the queue. Sweet entrance to Tony Hawk. Cool Logo At least we get ours to work. skycoaster Perfect timing! Freeze overview vroom...vroom They all look so pleased... Gigantic ooooo...flamey Boss The Almighty Boss! Rehab coming soon... New pizza joint...about the 3rd one in the park. Some of Britannia Just thought this was funny. Kinda new for the Kiddies. New compartments for Screamin' Eagle Loooking slick. Overview of the Boss Freshly painted and upkept. Notice the Superman theming on the buildings. Superman's sign outside the entrance. Nope, no feet around here...only wet paint. Up, Up and Away What's this over here...? Excellent views at the back of the park. ...they bump and grind. Bumper Cars There she goes... Damn! Nevermind about that... Don't worry! You barely get wet. splash pool and station Tidal Wave It pisses me off that it doesn't tilt anymore. All aboard the Mine Train! Mooseburger Lodge beautiful scenery Superman is still closed. theming and shops Ninja standing tall and erect. Ninja is all like "Hey little kids, if you ride me, I'll give you candy!" Joker's crotch shot This place smells so good! New Johnny Rockets. Has a nice 50's theme. More loopage... Entrance to Studio Backlot with Batman in the background. Sexyness! FLY Batman Inside the station. Me in front of Batman entrance. Volcano with waterfall at the end of the wave pool. Tornado with long lines as usual. No Hurricane Harbor today...I'd rather ride some rides. Welcome to Six Flags St. Louis! wonderful train
  19. Ok, so on the 14th me and a friend went to Six Flags St. Louis which is our local park. It was a great warm day and we had a blast. Despite the crowds...we were able to handle it throughout pretty much the whole day. Superman was still closed and repairs and fixing up was going on too with separate cars all day long. I'll get to the basics... Batman: The Ride - 1 ride (1 hour wait) Ninja - 2 rides (10 min. waits) Ninja now has an on-ride photo right before the final helix. River King Mine Train - 1 ride (15 min. wait) Gotta love that ending in the tunnel with the ghost. Screamin' Eagle - 2 rides (30 min. waits) Instead of buckets to put items in when you ride, they have numbered cubbords painted red, white and blue. Tony Hawk's Big Spin - 1 ride (1 hour 45 min. wait) I love this ride and the on-ride video make sit even better. I can never seem to control my laughter on this ride either. 2 skinny teenagers on one side + 1 large adult on the other = lots of spinning action! The Boss - 1 ride (30 min. wait) Rough? Where the hell was it rough? I have no idea...but my friend got a cramp from riding. I just don't get it. (?) Mr. Freeze - none (over a 2 hour wait) Completely ridiculus! I have no clue if both sides were running. Log Flume - 1 ride (5 min. wait) Johnny Rockets - 1 large American fry basket (45 min. wait) The wait wasn't worth the fries I got. Overall, I now just realize how few times I rode anything...I guess it was just too packed for the Sat. and it was HOT. Well, one thing is for sure. Six Flags is really cleaning up their act and Shapiro is doing a great job handling the company thus far. I look forward to more of his management in the future. Anyways, on to the pictures...Enjoy! ADMIN EDIT: In the future do not use the words "Photo TR" unless you actually have photos in your trip report. If need be, you can always change the subject later. Also ... please limit your uploaded images to no more than 800 pixels wide. These images are WAY too big.
  20. Oh, haha, at first it seemed like you were talking about the wait time for rides but I get what you mean. I don't remember seeing anyone with a Voyage shirt . I was wearing a green basketball shirt with yellow lettering and khaki shorts.
  21. Did you go today on the 28th? Because I was there also and I have to say that I too agree about the long queues because they were terribly long...longer than anything I've seen in the past 5 years and it had nothing to do with ride operations either. 2 trains on all coasters.
  22. Just wait for the pathway going under the ramp and ride to get finished and imagine the new views and photo ops you can get. It's pretty sweet!
  23. One of my immediate cousins is a kickboxer and his trainer is Chuck Norris. His name is Kevin Engle/Engel...both are spelt for him. He's pretty damn good too.
