  1. Surprised they didn't, I guess they didn't want to bother with updating it any more, or else they could be saving that feature for a taller sign facing the interstate? Edit: They have a space on the other side for manual updates: Either way it still looks good, glad to see they are extended the love to all corners of the park. Next up, update the parking gates, give them a more modern clean apperance. That would make the front parkway entrance really stand out. Edit: They also posted that they are fixing up the flag poles in the plaza and are having all flags flying again,
  2. That is very unfortunate to hear, I ain't sure how much impact they had outside of the forums, but at least HWfan will always be remembered on here. I got curious and checked ACE website, and it is not designated as Coaster Classic, rather a Coaster Landmark "A designation reserved for rides of historic significance". So I guess there would be no hurt if Six Flags decided to outsource to RMC topper or Titan Track, if they believe the ROI is worth paying. I honestly believe that most days Screamin Eagle is pretty smooth though, the only downside is the tight squeeze in the trai
  3. I agree 100% that I would rather see a new coaster over replacing Freeze any day. Just all thoughts coming out of my head thats all, I know the park cant get its ROI if it just goes willy nilly and starts fixing/replacing everything in the park. This aint Premier Six Flags now Agreed, I love hearing back from employees, so employees don't mind my rattling I also agree that I miss hearing from HWFan, I haven't seen him post in a while on this parks fourm. That honestly wouldn't be bad for Screamin Eagle to get some topper track, maybe some new wider trains if/or when th
  4. Question that arises is how much would it cost, like previously mentioned, for Six Flags to gut and rewire the whole control system to work with the newer Gen LIMs. Its not a question of will it work, but how much green is Six Flags willing to spend on a coaster thats almost 30 years old. Again thats why I think if it comes down to that, I wouldn't be surprised if they have thier finance department calculate a new coaster vs completely reworking a old coaster. (This is not a RMC after all ) And sure this conversation is pointless to anyone but the readers on this fourm, but we are fans t
  5. I've personally never considered Mr Freeze "Reverse Blast" a top attraction, but I understand it has its enthusiasts And I really don't see Freeze going any where anytime soon, it's still a good enough coaster, it keeps the GP happy when it works. But I agree, we are lucky enough for the changes the park is making to improve the overall experience. Hopefully one day we will see the big marquee roller coaster that everybody wants to see, but little touches like getting a new plaza, sign, and now the freakin batmobile is awesome
  6. I wonder if they actually are using the newer gen LIMs by now, I can't imagine Premier still manufacturing the old ones. But from what I understand it ain't 100% the LIMs fault with the design of the coaster mostly to blame, along with the huge power requirements for the ride requiring its own huge transformer. Personally, again, I wouldn't be sad to see Freeze go, especially if they put in a better launch coaster in its place. The amount of downtime and maintenance, coupled with the huge power demands, I wonder how much longer this coaster has at this park. Edit: Also if they did put LIM
  7. I agree with CP_Rules that it would take either LIMS in the valleys or else a whole reprofile of the coaster before the spike and add a straight track with LIMS to make it up and send back to the station. But the amount of time and money spent just trying to get the current LIMS to even work with their current power restraints, I highly doubt Premier has a solution that would warant a coaster this old (without big dollar signs). It almost would be better to see them remove Freeze and install a new gen Launch in its place by that point. I can totally agree with that, it is very wel
  8. Not sure much can be done with Shazam, and really though the whole are over there is mostly dead. If you were to improve, my thoughts would be to clear out the old arcade next to it and put in another flat, with another one possibly across from Shazam next to the bathroom and breathe some family friendly fun next to the Log Flume My thoughts exactly, but if they want to take off more than 10 years in infrastructure, they really need to install something to also bring profits in to keep supporting these improvements. The work that has been done I think is enough to warrant a big
  9. I don't think the whole station would need a reconstruction, it just needs a few feet extended in the main station so that way people are not crowded past the turnstile, while the ramps and walkway could be gutted and reprofiled for an easier wider walk up to the station. Also they have that bright white flood from the station still pointed towards the hill, but now they also got those new power hour floods facing the front of it. And great news about Batman getting back something that most of us has never seen. I really hope they continue spucing up all the old queue lines throughou
  10. I think it looks offset to line up with the new shortened walkway
  11. Update on The Batman, it looks like the concrete work is done on the new logo area in the front queue. I would've thought they might have put some grass or flowers around the logo but they went for a full concrete pad: \ CREDIT: ANDREW BRAKE, Facebook
  12. You can still get Season Parking for free if you buy during one of their sales: This is heavily cropped, the full version is here: Passes and Memberships Also Season Parking is free right now for anyone that wants a Season Pass of 4/29/2021: Prices valid only at Six Flags Saint Louis
  13. @jackinbox Just make sure you buy and activate your membership at your home park, lets say you go to SFGAm and had still not activated your membership at SFStL you will most likely be denied entry to SGAm. And then according to their FAQ's : "A very limited number of Membership benefits (such as free tickets for friends) are only valid at your home park. Discounts on food, merchandise, tickets, tours, etc are valid at all parks." Also Six Flags, for years now, have prioritized memberships over season passes as the "ultimate way to enjoy Six Flags". Straight from their FAQ page:
  14. Ah yes you are correct, but this is Six Flags after all! How much are they willing to put into theming thier front sign? The plaza is one thing, but to do it again on a bigger scale is another On another note, if they did, how will they differentiate themselves from McDs
  15. I wonder if they will carry the arch theme to the new front sign, something in the vein of the new plaza logo.
