I don't even know how to say this because I just can't even believe it... It is with heavy heart to say that Josh (HWFan) passed away today after a lengthy battle. This young man was such an amazing p

Thank you @bert425! I usually get the display up within a week since I only have a week off of school before Thanksgiving. Thankfully my family are wonderful hardworking elves so I don't have to insta

Hey everyone, its been awhile since I've done much more than browse the board, but I wanted to ask everyone here for some deep hard prayers for Josh (HWFan)... Some of you may already know whats going

Awww. That brings back my memories of seeing Renegade getting built. I'm happy for everyone whose excited for this! I know the joy of getting something fresh, new, and exciting. And although the wait til opening day may seem trillions of days away, it's all worth it after the first ride.

Too bad this one is a clone.

 

Evel’s about six feet shorter, a few mph faster, but layout wise what from what I can tell the only difference is that at the end of the second “out” run, Evel adds another set of track cross-overs and will pass under the first drop, taking that final far turnaround from left to right. Other than this one point, allowing for a slightly longer straight run of bunny hops on the return trip, the rides look fairly identical...

 

You lose.

I know. I can't wait to ride EK. I just hope it opens ahead of schedule but if it doesn't I'll just have to wait till May.

I cant wait to ride Renagade one day!

Too bad this one is a clone. Still good though because not many people have ridden it!

 

Although VERY similar, EK is not an exact clone of Thunderbird. There are some minor differences.

 

Quote from Screamscape.

One of our readers in Finland noticed something very interesting about the new Evel Knievel coaster going to Six Flags St. Louis… that it’s a damn near copy of Thunderbird in Finland’s Powerpark. There are some minor statistical differences (Evel’s about six feet shorter, a few mph faster, but layout wise what from what I can tell the only difference is that at the end of the second “out” run, Evel adds another set of track cross-overs and will pass under the first drop, taking that final far turnaround from left to right.

Thanks for the pics Robb! Am I looking at this wrong, I thought it was going to be further back in the park. But, from the angle where you can see Batman, it looks like it will be towards the front. Doesn't matter though, can't wait to get down there this summer.

Yeah, I think it's going in right in the front of the park. You can see it's right next to the log flume (that thing used to look SO big to me), and apparently they're rerouting/removing the Moon Antique Cars from the look of the first picture (it looks like the Moon cars track is in the foreground). I can't wait to get to my first "home park" again to ride this. If only they had these coasters when I was growing up...

This coaster is located right near the front of the park. If you go left at the entrance plaza and take the first left, it located just past where the Wii zone is/used to be, Right next to the log flume and not far from Mr. Freeze. I can't wait for this to open, I already have my SP for 2008 processed with parking on it.

Just drove by last weekend on Highway 44. Its right in front, which I love because its gonna OWN the vista of the park from the highway.

 

Is there a better freeway view of a park (and all 5 of its major coasters) than SFSTL?

^Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

 

What's a bummer is that Batman, Riddlers and Deja Vu is cut off in that photo, cause you can see them pretty clearly as well.

^Yes.

 

 

I so want one of these were Psyclone used to be...

 

Well if Deja Vu is removed I think a bigger "one of these" would be more awesome...like the one that is going to California's Great America in 2009.

^^Deja Vu isn't going anywhere.

 

^It'll never happen.

 

There's maintenance sheds, storage sheds, employee training rooms, a lot of people in there doing work. There's plenty of other places in the park to put roller coasters.
