Agreed! I actually think the ride (as well as all the other Six Flags CCI's that got Gerstlauers that year) really suffer from those trains. Not to say that I think Boss would have held up too much better given the state of many other CCI's lately, but I think the ride, at least in my mind, would have been "good" rather than "terrible" :lol:

Acrophobia takes riders to new heights in 2006 @ SFSTL

Postby St.LouisBOI » Mon Jan 23, 2006 6:08 pm

I'm not too sure if alot of people knew this but SFSTL has been having alot of construction going on in the back of the park in the Old Chicago section. "Dungeon Drop" from Astroworld has been colored up with Blue, Green, and Orange and has been transformed into Acrophobia in the past month. It is half built already and is already towering at the largest spot of the park on the hill right in front of the exit to Screamin' Eagle.

The park is also adding a new kids section called "Looney Tunes National Park" right by the Old Chicago train station, Tom's Twister was demolished for the reason of the section. Screamin' Eagle is also being repainted this season with a fresh new white coat. This is going to be a great 2006 season for SFSTL....this park is going in the right way. Tune in to sfstl.net for details and pictures of the official announcement taking place 1/25/06. Thanks for your time! :)
Looks like SFSTL is getting one of those spinning coasters for next year.

I'm also very excited to find out that one of my all time favorite coasters, the Screamin' Eagle, is receiving a new paint job. This John Allen classic is worth the paint. Maybe SFSTL will light her up with the continuous blinking bulbs the way they used to.

Yeah, I know I just realized that I spelt Looney Toons wrong. Haha, thanks for the correction! I also forgot to say that the Moon Antique Cars may possibly get an extended track layout that goes through the old Looney Toons Town over by the Log Flume. AS I said, more detail will be released Wed.

Yeah, I kinda felt that I spelt it right as the way that I've always spelt it. Thanks for the info!
