Im right by SFGA, I love my homepark,, but I would really like to go to another one around here. I dont see alot about SFST, but how is it?? I mean, I really dont know if a drive to the park is really worth it? it doesnt look better than SFGA.. Im thinking if I go to ARZ, im gonna stop there. And hows SFWOA?? I think I would like to go to that park, it looks pretty cool,, and definetely Cedar Point. But SFST is really never talked about,, is it good?? or bad?? anyone??

I've been the last two years in October.
It's a nice park and worth going.
Batman is just the normal B&M clone. The Screaming Eagle is a nice woodie, long, goes across the back of the park. The Ninja is fun, but kinda outdated with all the new coasters of today. Looking at the specs, the ride is 11 years old. Mr. Freeze is not running anymore, I rode it two years ago, major head banging. Too bad, this makes them lose a ride. And of coarse, The Boss is their big attraction with the 2 hour waits. This is the ride that is bringing everyone to the park, otherwise noone would go. They draw alot of local people with radio station remotes. Even in October of last year, the park was jammed.
When you drive up to the park, you see the lift hill and the first drop of The Boss, and it's mighty impressive.
They need a steal Intamin giga coaster to put them on the map again. That's what we all want in the parks that haven't been getting attention. I'm sure it will happen in a couple years. Last year they added a water park and The Boss.
While you're in St. Louis, see the Arch, you go up 600 feet and look straight down out a window. Get there early in the morning, like at 9am. Go to the arch, and the entrance is on each side. You go under, inside some buildings, then an elevator train system takes you to the top.
I'd say to find a cheap hotel downtown. You could visit Six Flags for half a day, then go downtown, see the arch, then stay in your hotel room and drive back the next day. Six Flags is located about 1 hour from the center of downtown, it's way out west.

Mr Freeze is running (friend of mine is a ride op on it this year), the SFStL Mr Freeze and the SFoT Mr Freeze where down for a period last fall but are back online now.
I think SFStL will get talked about, for good or bad, more after the ACE Spring Conference in May.
A hyper or a floorless or a 4D, etc, etc, would help in putting this park on the map again, but, only time will tell if that will happen.

My friends and I went to Six Flags St Louis last year. It was OK, but it's not a park we would return to. I think Robvia has it right, if you're going to St Louis for sightseeing, include a visit to SFStL, but it's not necessarily worth a trip in and of it self.

As to why we didn't like it much... I think our general consensus was that it had some nice rides (on the other hand, it also has that Ninja headbanging machine...), but nothing outstanding. We took several rides on Mr Freeze, we like that the best. The Boss just left us cold... too rough. Food, just average. It also suffers from the Six Flags "Oh, just put it anywhere..." method of theming. ("Yeah...let's name it the Boss, and give it a cool Harley Davidson inspired logo and let's put it.... yeah, in the British section, since they had so many motorcycle gangs in Olde England... ").

If you do decide to go, try and get a room at the Ramada Inn at Six Flags. It was very convenient to the park, of course, but also very convenient for our sightseeing excursions.
