  1. I’ll be interested to see how that ride looks in the area. I heard that construction will begin in May in hopes for a late June/early July opening. I’ll be excited to watch this ride get built. I bet it’ll be noticeable from the interstate since it’s 40ft tall and on a hill.
  2. I hate to say it bro but I don’t remember a single time that Jim Reid Anderson talked about beautifying the parks. It was the additions post Sky Screamer that really made the Illinois section look themeless. Fireball replacing Rush Street Flyer and the removal of Tidal Wave really have made that section look terrible. Something my partner and I were talking about that we liked the sound of is if they did replace the log flume with one of those Zamperla flume/family coaster models. That way the area could be opened up and maybe connect the path over there to Britannia to create better flow for the park. The two sections I’d really like to see addressed first would be Britannia and the Illinois section. The Illinois section is the worst-looking section of the park I think, and I’d love to see Tidal Wave’s spot finally filled, perhaps either with a large flat ride or a Power Splash. I’d also love to see Fireball removed for a new beer garden or restaurant or something, especially with the sheer amount of super loops being removed from the Six Flags parks. Other than that, I actually would like to see the Britannia section get a refresh, and I think that’s coming with Rookie Racer, the Carousel renovation, and the removal of Dragon’s Wing, Go-Karts, and Excalibur. What I hope for, and what I think is most likely for next year, I think we will finally see a few sections of Titan Track on Boss (since the queue is getting reworked this year) and a flat ride replacement for Excalibur. Call me crazy, but what I’d actually love to see is Supergirl being moved to the spot of Excalibur and being rethemed to Highland Fling, then have the Moon Cars return to the park where Supergirl and Dragon’s Wing were, or just across from where Rookie Racer will be since we don’t know exactly where it’s going yet. Along with that, I’d love to see a new restaurant where that pizza joint is and see a refresh of those games and another drafthouse or something.
  3. That may be the case. However, we’ve been stuck with Six Flags CEOs for the past ten years that valued allocating funds for cheap new rides to each park rather than allocating funds to park upkeep and beautification projects. It’s just nice to see leadership in place that values the importance of park upkeep and atmosphere again.
  4. Wow! I am so happy to see so many projects getting done at Six Flags parks! I love seeing the kids coasters and interactive attractions, but I love these infrastructure improvements. Ramar posted these pics of one of the new seating areas, and this looks great! I bet this will get a lot of use. He’s also shown that Joker’s Jinx’s sign and trains are in the works of being repainted as well as thematic elements around the kid’s area.
  5. Same! Quite a few of the Six Flags parks have been working on numerous infrastructure and beautification projects and I’ll be excited to see what else Six Flags St. Louis has in store. I don’t know if my boyfriend and I will be able to make it out for opening weekend, but definitely the weekend after. I’ll be excited to see the progress on Rookie Racer. Looking back at the concept art, it looks like they’ll build a little plaza for it as well as a viewing/seating area beside the coaster. I really hope they reroute Boss’ queue to have its entrance at this plaza.
  6. I'm really excited for this! Yes, it looks to be a smaller water coaster and it does look to have a weaker layout, but even a weaker water coaster is still better than 80% of waterslides. With the Six Flags additions being made for this year, I think it is important to remember that Six Flags originally said they weren't adding anything at all for this year so... If anybody watched the full livestream, they also made sure to highlight the attention being given to the park's landscaping, overall appearance, and atmosphere. They are bringing in a new landscaping company to improve the park landscaping, they are going to be repainting buildings and rides throughout the park, they are adding new shading structures and seating areas, they have created new shows and they are improving current park events as well as adding some other new festivals. I know that this park has a long way to go to be a GREAT park, but any improvement is good to see at this park. I went back in June on a layover in DC, and I enjoyed the park the day that I was there. The new park president has been at the park for nearly 30 years, and his Facebook page seems to indicate that he is dedicated to improvements around the park.
  7. I meant to come look at this thread after the announcement of Rookie Racer, but then I forgot. I am so glad that the park is finally getting a coaster for kids. Six Flags St. Louis is my boyfriend and I's home Six Flags park and we both thought Rookie Racer is the perfect addition for the park. Honestly, I'm glad to see them removing the upcharge attractions. I actually love the idea of them creating a new mini-area next to this ride in the next couple years. I hope that this means they'll reroute the queue of The Boss. If the coaster goes where the park said it would during that ACE event, then I'd have to imagine that they'll need to reroute the queue of The Boss. I could see them creating a plaza next to the new coaster and moving The Boss' entrance there.
  8. I'm starting to wonder if that large building behind Fireman's Landing is a 2023 or a 2024 addition. With the building fully erected, I would think that it is a 2023 addition, but when my boyfriend and I were there on Thursday, we were able to get a glimpse in the building and there is nothing inside that we could see.
  9. I think the Vortex plot will be reused in 2024. I think 2023 will be an off year for Kings Dominion with a new thrill ride coming to Jungle Expedition in 2024 in preparation for the Volcano replacement in 2025 for their 50th anniversary. I think Jungle Expedition was a good fill-in while we wait for the Volcano replacement. But I think I'm going to have to say that I think this project will be a Titan Track creation. I feel confident in GCI's ability to make a ride that can be distinguished from Prowler. I think it can be distinguished the same way that CCI was able to distinguish Legend from the Raven and then those same engineers distinguishing Voyage from Raven and Legend.
  10. Woah! Who does Cedar Fair think they are actually sending something new to one of their smaller parks? Have they forgotten it's been two years since Kings Island added a coaster?
  11. Understandable on why you would like to wait. However, I’d hardly call it remote since it took us just an hour and a half to get to Adventureland afterwards. Plus it’s within a day’s drive of multiple other midwestern parks. But we definitely want to go again this summer after Matugani opens and next year when Yuta Falls opens. I mean I feel lucky that we are only five hours away from Lost Island. It was definitely worth the drive.
  12. Went to Lost Island last week for the first time! We absolutely adored the park! The park exceeded our expectations (waiting for a quip like "how high were your expectations?"). We spent about three hours at the park and the only reason we left was because we wanted to get to Adventureland early enough to marathon Monster. But anyways, we loved Volkanu and Amara Aviators. We really wanted to ride Rokava and Mura Fury, but they were closed for the day for technical issues. That being said, that's just one more reason to go back later this summer to visit. Nopuko was definitely not the worst SLC I've ridden. It was actually pretty smooth and fun aside from the two jolts at the top of the rollover; the trick is to ride further back in the train. We did notice that it seemed to run insanely fast for an SLC. Another quick note: we noticed something odd about Matugani. We noticed that there was strips of paint missing along the track where the wheels run. I think it is quite possible the coaster may have started testing, so it'll probably be open by August. Some quick thoughts about the park overall: Aside from the parking and admission prices, everything was priced very fairly. Food was cheap and good for a theme park, even the alcohol prices were not incredibly high. I love the original themes. I am in love with the Tamariki mascot. Everything looks stellar in the park. The architectural styles throughout the park are gorgeous and everything looks great put together. I especially love the look of the buildings in Udara and Yuta realms. The layout of the park is amazing and I loved the placement of the rides. I love all the lookouts at the water, including the area in Awa that includes the bar and a couple snack places. There is a nice seating area that overlooks the water with cool lighting and some areas for the kids to play while the adults rest. Plus I love how the rides are laid out in the Udara realm; the atmosphere will be electric when all the rides are running at once in that area. The landscaping will be gorgeous once it has a chance to fill out. Each realm had at least a dozen trees planted, and they will definitely add to the atmosphere here in a couple seasons, especially in the Yuta realm. However, the paths are pretty unshaded by the trees at this point in time. But that's not a huge surprise since it is a brand-new park. But a nice, added touch is that they made sure to include some slight elevation changes throughout the park so that it isn't completely on a flat field. There's also a couple of areas where they put little streams that run near a path. Overall, the landscaping looks great and I'm excited to see it grow. Overall, the park is off to a decent start. I know the low attendance is a bit discouraging now, but I think it is for the better that the attendance is kinda low for this season, only because it is giving them a chance to work out the kinks in the operation of the park before massive crowds come. I think people would be a lot more disappointed if they came out to the park in droves this year as opposed to next season. Especially with Yuta Falls opening next year since it will be the main water ride of the theme park. I think people will be really impressed next season when more of the landscaping has started growing in a bit more and when every single attraction is open. But as the park is now, I was perfectly satisfied and I'm excited for everybody to go out and try it!
  13. Anybody planning on going to the park soon? I think my boyfriend and I are gonna head here in mid-July in hopes to catch Matugani. Plus for when more landscaping is in place and such. The company in charge of floral design mentioned that only about half of the landscaping is in and that more should be planted within two weeks.
  14. Alright guys: opening day has passed and the new park map was released! The two biggest things to note are that the map even mentions the new for 2023 attraction, meaning that I think this will finally mean something large for the park. Also Rock’N’Tug appears to have been removed from the map and has the same question mark where it used to be. I’m not expecting anything too big here. I think best case scenario is either a Larson drop tower or a Zamperla midi discovery revolution. But I think it could just be another family ride, maybe a Ferris wheel.
