I'm not the greatest at writing a trip report, but here it goes....
We left Michigan just over 2 weeks ago for our yearly megacoastertrip. This year we focused on mid America parks. Our first stop was Six Flags St Louis to pick up our season passes as we were going to be hitting several different six flags parks on this trip. We were also able to spend the majority of the day at the park, and were really impressed with our visit compared to our prior trip to the park. First the negatives... The only real negative was the show at the palace theater...it was horrid. It looked like it was out on by a bunch of amateurs. Other than that, everything was open(except the boomerang) and the staff was friendly and on Mark as far as dispatching coasters.
There was also a switchfoot concert, and actually got to ride Batman with them. Cool guys.
Onto some pictures. I will do 1 park at a time since there are so many. So let's start with Six flags St Louis.
Well hello St louis
And hello six flagd
This year, they added a new ride
Typical disk-o ride
Six flags got it rite! Why can't cedar fair do This?
The park had a really good parade.
For lunch, I used the meal plan to score a chicken ceaser salad. There had to be 1/2 pound of chicken on it. Over the course of our trip, we found that six flags dinning plan was superior to cedar fairs meal plan.
My personal favorite coaster in the park.
It's hard to get much of this ride photographed.
Durring this trip, we got to experience 3 different justice league rides.
This coaster is also a lot of fun.
Nice ride entrance...npt so comfortable ride.
Worst show ever.
But the park had several other entertainment options
Batman doing it's thing.
As we were eating, a family finished eating, and didn't even bother throwing there trash out. There was a trash can right by where I took this picture from. Within 5 min, a six flags employee cleaned it up.
We had a great time at the park. Time to leave for our next park...magic springs.

We did not have tickets to the concert, nor did we even know they were there untill we got to the park. We were able to hear some of the concert while walking around the park. We were also able to watch the sound check from screeching eagles platform while waiting to ride.
Today's update is from magic springs(unfortunately). I didn't really have high expectations going into this park, and they did not disappoint. This was definitely the worst park of the trip. Everything from the layout of the park, to 1 train operations on the coasters, to the world's slowest ride operations. It should NOT take 10 minutes to unload, load, and dispatch 1 train. The operators were in no hurry what so ever to dispatch a train. It was more important to them to check there cell phones and joke around with eachother. The log ride was fun if you can look past the slow staff, long line, and the fact that they only run a few logs for some reason.
There was a lot of empty areas where it looked like there used to be a ride there. I would also not recommended anyone with a stroller or wheel chair to attempt this park. We had to chuckle at the fact that there were several people walking around with ankle bracelets on.
The only positive thing this park has going for it was the X coaster. This thing was just crazy scary. It was a unique new type of thrill ride I have never experienced. The water park also looked inviting, but very buisy.
Onto the pictures...
After navigating the confusing parking lot, we arrived at the main gate.
First stop on our way back to the coasters was the bumper cars.
But with a LONG line, and only a couple of bumper cars we passed.
Our next stop was the parks log flume.
Fun flume ride, but with the world's slowest staff, and running only a few logs....get ready for an epic wait.
The lay of the land
Our first coaster we came across was this.
A typical slc coaster
Yea....credit horring time.
One advantage of having kids, is that you don't look like a pedifile scoring credits.
Next credit. I think this coaster was purchased from dollywood...correct me if I'm wrong.
Hard to get any pictures of the ride since it's basically hidden in the trees.
The best ride in the park.
This is just a crazy coaster tgat need to be experienced.... unfortunately you have to go to Magic springs to ride it.
Insane twist with a great view
In our way to our last credit in the park, we ran across this ummm. Interesting food stand.
Our last credit, on the opposite side of the park. This coaster is basically in the water park all by itself. Decent coaster, a bit ruff in spots.
One last look at the train.
A few random pictures of the park.
The water park looked to be very popular.
Probably not.... That's all from this park.
On the road again. Next stop is the lone star state.
A few bonus pictures of the drive to Texas. There is a place called "Buckies" that is only located in Texas. They have several locations in the state. I HIGHLY recommend checking this place out. This place is huge! They have 200 gas pumps, giant wall of candy, beef jerky, freshly made sandwiches, and anything else you could want on a road trip. And don't forget to try the beaver nuggets as well.
We also stopped by Magnolia, and the Alamo.
This is what 200 gas pumps looks like.
Everything you could want.
We also stopped by magnolia market from the HGTV show.
As soon as you get into Texas, they make sure to remind you where you are. Even our breakfast at the hotel had waffles in the shape of Texas.
And of course if your in Texas, you have to visit the Alamo.
Unfortunately, you can't take pictures inside.
That's it from the Alamo....next stop is Six Flags fiesta Texas.
