A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to explore the core of Six Flags STL's Entertainment Department and Operations with a behind the scenes tour. With approval from the HR Department, they a

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

The Saturday before last, Eve took her first trip to a park. (7 months old) We were only there for a couple hours. Long enough to watch the big rides cycle. The park looked fine. The area around JB's

Just getting caught up. I don't understand how they can put the headsets on Ninja. I thought we outlawed torture of our own citizens!?!?

 

Maybe they'll attach the headset to a heavy-duty padded helmet to eat up some of the headbanging?

When did SFGAd announce that they were having a HITP? I would expect an announcement for our park (that is if it is really going to happen) to be around the same time.

SFGAd announced HITP last year.

 

Six Flags announced HITP at SFSTL on February,19th this year

That's not what he meant.

 

Great Adventure officially announced on April 1, 2015. Six a flags has not released official details as of yet which isn't surprising.

If my eyes don't deceive me, I believe Fireball has been getting its Mohawk..err...flames on top. Honestly, after watching the Fireball video a few times, I'm actually really, really excited for this ride. It just looks like a lot of fun. The hang-time and seating arrangement will be cool. Even though some people may not be too hyper about riding it, I think that it will be a great addition to the park. Opening day will definitely be a good Friday.

 

I can't believe how close opening day is getting. The park will be bright and beautiful next week. "You can't see it. It's electric!....But you know it's there. Yeah, here there everywhere." <--Anyone else in a dancing mood?

 

EDIT: If anyone is trying to view the HITP information, it seems like the park's website is temporarily down, but they posted a short video for the event on the park's Facebook page.

9 more days left!

 

Which would be a better ride to start the season off with? JLBFM or American Thunder?

 

EDIT: I have a gold season pass to enter the park early

American Thunder.

 

If it's open I want to hit The Boss first. When I rode it last year on Saturday opening weekend before they closed it ran beautifully. When I rode it June 2014.....not so much so.

 

9 days away. "Supposed" to be 63 degrees. I'll take that. Rain rain go away.

I would check Justice League and see if there's a line first or see if it's actually running. If there is a line, I'd do American Thunder first.

FYI, if you see people outside the JL line, it's at least 90 minutes.

As long as there aren't any delays, the line is 60 minutes once you reach the entrance of the hall of justice.

In my mind, this is the reason the queue doesn't actually reach the wall to the right of the entrance. They did the math and realized if the queue had been extended another 10 feet there it would have taken 70 minutes and that just would not have been okay.

 

...

 

Actually, do we have any idea why that gap is there? I guessed they wanted another theming installation but ran out of money.

Last time I rode it, there wasn't a "delay", but the staff wasn't filling the cars to capacity. I get that it's really busy and all, but it makes no sense to put only two or three people on it, when it can hold seven.

Now that we are close to opening day, I'm wondering if HWFan or some other park person in the know can tell me if the volume problem on JLBFM has been corrected. In short, the volume level of the entire ride, especially the Joker animatronic, was way way too low. This problem doesn't exist at the SFOT version, which is much louder and therefore much more effective. A Six Flags exec I ran into in the park last year (I don't know his name but it wasn't Dave) told me that they were well aware of that issue but that it wasn't just a matter of turning up the volume; the soundtrack needed to be rerecorded. I guess I'll see for myself next weekend, but I'm still wondering, any info on this?
