HHStL TR: 5/30
Hurricane Harbor St. Louis
May 30, 2002
FRIDAY
=====
As always I will rate the attractions using the 0 to 5+ scale with 5+ being the best, then will follow each with comments if I feel they needs some :)
=====

BIG KAHUNA
7 rides
5-
This is HH's version of Hurricane Falls (at OoF). I feel that the SF Co. did a better job with this one, however I have been on better (like the one at Blizzard Beach). I just think that this ride needed some more LENGTH to it.
=====

PIRAHNA (red)
3 rides
3+
==
HAMMERHEAD (drk green)
5 rides
5

MANofWAR (yellow)
3 rides
4-
==
STINGRAY (teal)
4 rides
5-

I combined all four of these since they are on the same tower. They are all four innertube slides with a "splash" finale. I give the edge to Hammerhead because the course is completely in the dark whereas Pirahna and Man of War are partially enclosed and then a lot outside. Pirahna is longer than most of the others but slows down and gets boring on the outside portion. Stingray is about like Hammerhead but you can see inside.
=====

Gullywasher Creek
8 rides
5-
This ride is their lazy river. It is a very nice course that is filled with geysers and waterfalls. There is one section that is almost like a "geyser pass" with water coming from everywhere. There is also another section where there are HUGE waterfalls coming down on you. While you are drifting look at one of the signs, it says something quite funny dealing with crabs. The only bad thing about this ride is they don't have very many "curteosy tubes" so they FORCE you to rent one.
=====

Jurahnimo Falls (green)
7 times
5+
While not as scary as Summit Plummit, this speed slide is quite fun and gets you adrenaline pumping.
=====

Challenger Speed Slides
(I can't remember their names) (blue and red)
5 times
5+ (red) 4- (blue)
These are twisty speed body slides. I suggest red over blue because you can't see in it (totally dark) whereas the blue one you can. If you are racing, take the blue it is faster.
=====

Hook's Lagoon
4-

This is there children's area. The huge bucket that tips over is fun and there is a lot of other fun things to do as well.
=====

Hurricane Bay
3 times
4-

This was the WEAKEST wave pool I have EVER been in. Even the wave pool at BIG SURF is better than this. I don't know, maybe it was the fact that the deepest area you could go into I will still standing flat footed...
=============================================

Overall park rating (out of 5+) 5-

Comments: the park needs some more slides. I think some straight racing body slides would be nice and even a wedge slide. I think it's time for phase 2 of the park.

I think you misunderstand my rating scale. It goes 0 1- 1 1+ 2- 2 2+ and so on. Sort of like a report card. (so a 5- is not a negative five) :)
