SFStl 5-28-02

I went to SFStl w/ my spanish club at school. When we got there we went for the Boss and waited 20 minutes for the front seat and is still my favorite coaster. Then we headed over to Screamin Eagle cuz it looked like it might rain so we need to get the woodies in and waited 10 minutes for the front. Even though Ninja kinda sucks when walked on the front for that. Got in line for namtaB I mean Batman got the front seat on the left it seemed a little rough today. We then to 1904 Worlds Fair hotdogs or whatever its called and ate the got on the front seat of MR FREEZE(got stappled) and boy that was awesome my friend kurt and I went no hands the whole way and I went to buy my pic and the booth was gone.... that sucked. We decided to ride the Boss and it started to rain some but we still got a ride in the front and it was flying in the rain. Then we went to Batman cuz the Boss was closed after our ride for a while. So we wait like 45 for the front get on and they said they had to shut down the coasters cuz of lighting I was so pissed off. I was releved to find out the Joker was still going and rode that 3 times and I had so much room I was standing up going backwards. In total the rides were closed for like 45 minutes. When they open I wanted my ride on Batman so we walked on to the coaster and then went for Mr. Freeze and and had like 3 inches of room and we launched in the rain and it was better than the first time and we got right back on and afterwards i was hungry so I spent 6 bucks on pizza the size of a CD I was that hungry. Our class had to leave at 6:30 so that was our last ride overall next to my anual July 5th Cedar Point trip(not only time I go) where I ride all the coaster at least twice in one day thjis was probally the best trip to a park I have had.

They removed the Freeze photo booth and installed one on the Mine Train. I couldn't believe that. A Mine Train photo?

I thought the mine train photo was pretty lame too especially since you couldnt see the video monitors because of the sunlight. That ride, Boss, and the flume have the on ride cameras. Pretty lame setup if you ask me. I ended up getting one on Boss, my very first on ride photo I ever purchased.

I suppose there are a lot of little kids that the mine ride is their first "real" coaster... so their parents would want a photo. Why there is a photo on the log flume is beyond me...

Actually, that log flume was the first place I ever saw and on-ride photo. Mid-70's they were doing it with Polaroids. If you wanted a photo they would put a flag on your log and get you coming down the last hill.

I visited Six Flags St. Louis in 2001 and from Interstate 44 the park didn't look all appealing. We went on a Wednesday. Parking was good accept for the fact that charter buses have the ability to park in hadicapped areas. We got in the park and the staff greeted us and asked to take a picture w/us and we split up. We 1st went to Batman and the line was a one in a half hour wait. We skipped it and went to Ninja , one of the sorriest and bumpiest rides there. There was no wait. I enjoyed it though. Next was the Screamin Eagle. One of my woodie favorites. It has great airtime and in a natural environment. We waited in line for about 20 minutes. Next was Mr.Freeze. We waited in line for about 45 minutes and it was awesome. The one in Dallas is better though. After that we had lunch. We got our hands stamped and drove about 2 miles to the Shake N Bake, btw they have the best burgers and shakes. Next we came back to conquer Batman. The wait was 40 minutes and it was sooo fun. Then we waited in line for The Boss. The ride had broken down and everybody was leaving so that made the line shorter. By the time the ride was fixed and running we were in the front. It was awesome. I didn't like the restraints. Awesome airtime. Then we took another swing at The Boss and the wait was about 15 minutes long. Next was Mr. Freeze again. It was gettin dark outside, the wait was 35-40 minutes. It was cool outside. They turned on the lighting and it looked spectacular. The launch was soo cool. We left at about :30 pm. That was my trip to Eureka, at Six Flags St. Louis

I rember when Batman had an onride photo. Right after the zero-g roll andright before the second loop. How many of you went to SFSTL when the power went out? It happened a few weeks ago. It was off for TWO hours through the whole park. I was on the Ninja and it got stuck on the lift hill. It sucked!

Why pay 6 bucks for a slice of pizza when you have a Ponderosa right down the block in Eureka with a 6 dollar buffet?
