Six Flags St. Louis (SFStL) Discussion Thread

p. 550 - Hallowfest trip report!

Recommended Posts

I really do love our Superman. When I visit other parks, I always fell a little dissappointed by other drop towers. There’s something about Superman that gives it that extra exciting thrill (probably the elevation).

 

The only problem I have with Superman is that every time I’ve ridden it in the last couple years, I’ve always gotten shafted with a seat facing away from the park and towards that back hill.

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

Me too. Thanks a lot Josh... (joking) We usually only ride it when he's working.

Thanks for the info a couple pages back on Falcon's Fury. Assuming I survive the ride with my wits intact I'll be sure and do our Superman Tower (finally) the next time I visit, which will probably be early June.

 

Unrelated, but I was looking at some Six Flags St. Louis stuff on YouTube the other day and Coaster Studios "review" of Six Flags St. Louis came up, which looks like it was posted just a couple months ago. I gave it a watch. Yeesh, he brutalized it pretty good. Not saying I disagree with many of those points but damn, that makes the park look quite a bit worse than it actually is IMO.

^ I've seen that review! He literally said that he had "forgotten" that he had been to the park because it was so bad. I've haven't visited SFSTL since the 70's, but I had no idea it had gone downhill that bad.

It is all about expectations, if he was expecting King's Island/Cedar Pt experience then yes our park isn't too great.

For a local park however, it is fine. Ultimately, we are about 20 years behind the time. In other words, if it was 1998 with our park as it is today we would be in great shape and on par with current technology, design, etc. yada yada

Totally coincidentally that was the last year a major new steel addition opened.

If you think that he was slamming SFStL, then you clearly haven't seen his review of La Rhonde!

Going to a music festival in Cincinnati next month so I figured I’d hit up King’s island. Just bought my tickets and was pleasantly surprised that single day tickets aren’t ungodly expensive like ours are.

Cedar Fair runs some good single day deals. They also have two and three day packages.

 

On the flip side their season passes are 3x the price of a SFSL pass.

Seriously, it's so worth it. You pretty much walk right on all of the rides.

Didn't notice a ton of additional vertical progress on Typhoon Twister on Saturday, but more slide pieces were missing in the parking lot. This is going to end up going up very quickly with some big lifts eh?

 

Wave pool has water in it so there's definitely plenty of work going in to the water park. Hopefully mother nature warms that up a bit more than it did last year.

Just left the park. I noticed new lighting in batman’s station. I thought it was pretty cool. The boss’s new turn is fun with a pop of air in the end of it. Wasn’t expecting the mid course brakes to stop the car that much.

Some pieces for their new water slide are still sitting in the parking lot, so it looks like it wasn't quite ready in time for Memorial Day weekend.

 

Also has Justice League been closed recently? Everything was closed due to weather when I arrived. I thought it was odd their indoor ride would be closed too.
