Wait a minute. I've never seen trees close to those bunny hills. Maybe just never noticed them.

Wait, there was a actually tree in the Gotham city section of Six Flags America? I don't believe it. This story is not adding up. :lol:

Onto the pictures!


Nice pics, tho it sounds like the park often is that dead (it was like that on our visit last summer too).


I'm a little shocked at the price, but hopefully you didn't pay near that much.

I'd guess that Six Flags has the prices jacked to drive folks to Season Passes/Memberships.

Really, they've been running Season Pass sales out the wazoo over the past week (I keep getting emails saying this is the LAST sale for 2019), with Season Pass running under $60. . and it's good at all parks, and upgraded to Gold (which gets you parking at all parks free).

so surprised y'all didn't just do that- if you visit any other Six Flags park during the year, would have been worth it. . and heck, was cheaper than the 1 day price anyways.

glad you had a good time tho!

did you take pics the moment you got to the car?

hopefully so, and even if you did not? email corporate. Tell them you were injured, tell you have witnesses, and tell them the ride ops/security/First Aid reaction you got.

they can't make improvements (or even give lip service on the improvements), if they don't know.


we just visited SFStl, and despite the horror show of Justice League running reduced capacity, and the lady working the ADA / Flash Pass entrance being completely slammed (and I'm certain dealing with complaints about how dang long the line was and how slow moving it was).. I made sure to note her name (Denise), and sent off an email to Six Flags StL this morning, complimenting on how much we enjoyed interacting with her, and how much we appreciated the help she gave us in getting our ADA help needed person on the ride.

so yeah. . tell them bad and/or good. .they need to know.


and hope you're feeling better.

Buying a Six Flags season pass is always the way to go, and I only do that on seasons in which I know I'll be visiting more than one Six Flags. Although Six Flags America is the closest Six Flags park to where I live, I have in the past bought a Six Flags season pass in New England one year and Six Flags over Georgia on another year, and I used them to visit other Six Flags parks. I didn't buy any Six Flags season passes this year (just for Hersheypark and a Funcard for Busch Gardens), but if I have any future trips that involves Six Flags visits, then I shall get a season pass and save tons of money ($$$)!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

The manager took a picture. I have emailed .

Maybe this is why they cut down all the trees in the first place. :lmao:

Got a call from the Safety Manager, he said they went out and did some trimming. He also said the park president, who is a foot taller than me, rode the ride and was well clear of everything.

Wacky issues with three coasters on the same day in June? I'm thinking Eleanor was up to her birthday / death anniversary tricks again.

Just sounds like a normal day at a Six Flags park to me. Three rides down at Six Flags St. Louis or Six Flags Discovery Kingdom would be a record low for them!
