I think the boss is too. Also batman: the ride and mr. freeze would be the most popular rides at the park, so ride those first when you get there.

It is my understanding that The Boss and Mr Freeze are the two not to be missed..... Also ride the new "Xcalibur" should be an interesting ride.

As much as I love SFStL, they don't have too many can't miss rides. Of course hit all of the coasters and I'd definately check out the new flat (well at least it's new to SFStL). But you can easily get everything done in a day or even half a day. So there's really nothing to worry about.

I'd save RKMT for last, I'd rather ride Ninja 2 times before that. Oh wait, I did... Ninja does have a great headchopper however. :)

The MF with the lap bars really changed it from a rough and unbearable ride into my favorite ride just below MF (Millenium Force) heh, my top two are MF and MF, funny huh?

I just got back from SFStl. (my 1st time there) and I can tell you Mr. Freeze if totally one you don't want to miss (The front is great IMO). The Boss was a little rough for me, but other that the roughness it has a great fast pace throught the whole ride. The Eagle is good but IMO it needs trains like GASM at SFOG with the fixed lapbar (you could enjoy the air-time more). The Ninja is ok and I do agree that it has some good headchoppers. Batman is well Batman. The River King Mine Train is a very good Mine Train IMO and I think is best ridden at night. As for flats Xcalibur is a nice addition to the park and a nice BIG flat ride. One a side note the Scooby Doo Haunted Mansion is a really fun dark ride well worth a trip through. I hope this can answer your questions to how the rides are at SFStl.

As for my TOS comment, best threads really arent allowed, however since this is just what isnt to be missed I will make a comment...

Hit everything!!! The park is rarely crowded and you can ride all the big rides within a few hours (most of that time will be spent negotiating the long queues in the park ;))

This is a really nice park with some above average coasters. I wouldnt say any of them are awesome, but none of them (with the possible exception of RKMT) are bad. Even Ninja has one heck of a redeeming quality in its awesome headchopper which had me reriding several times :)

I would hit all of the coasters. I love Mr. Freeze now that is has lap bars. Try to ride the boss and Screamin Eagle at night or later in the day because they are totally different rides in the dark. I was also ride Evolution and even Scooby Doo is okay if you like interactive dark rides.

I heard that "Let the Moderators do their own job" ride was really good...

The "cant miss" rides at SFSTL, in my opinion, are Boss, Freeze, Scooby's Ghost Blasters, and Batman. In all honesty though, the park is small enough that, even on a busy day (like it was yesterday), you won't have any problem hitting all of the rides.

My best advice is to ride at night. All of the coasters here really shine after the sun goes down. The crowds also start to thin out so the lines are much more managable. The Mine Train and Screamin' Eagle provide fairly dark and interesting night rides being that their somewhat secluded. The Boss, in my opinion, is one of the best night coasters anywhere. It's unreal how fast and intense this coaster is in the dark.

I was fairly unimpressed by Xcalibur. But if you've never been on anything like it, you'll probably want to give it a try.

Screaming Eagle at night is still my favorite ride in the park. It really feels out of control and wild. I also like racing through the trees on a full-moon night.

The Boss, Namtab, and Freeze are all must rides. Screamin Eagle is also good. I heard Xcalibur was good as well. I hope you have a great trip Anaconda.

Mr. Freeze and Batman are the highlights. Unfortunately, Mr. Freeze's line was terrible when I rode. 45 minutes in the hot sun since they were only running one train on a busy day and there was no shade in the line. A great ride once you were on though.

The Boss was rough and lacked air time when I rode it. A surprising disappointment for a CCI woodie. Eagle was actually a better ride with nice pops of air, though it also needed track work.

The other coasters were nothing special. The overall setting of the park was prettier than most SF parks.

XCALIBUR is a Nauta-Bussink evolution ride (new this year), moved from Six Flags Great Adventure.
