Six Flags STL info...

Wednesday, June 23, 2004 1:19 PM
Well I think the family has decided on Six Flags STL.

So I have some questions...on the website it was a ticket called the Multi-Visit General Use and says it $43. But it doesn't say how many days it is for or anything...not to many details.

So I was wondering if anybody on here has ever used that and how many days was it for or would it just be better to get a season pass or what?

I need some help.

Thanks

I would get season passes because I've never heard of the "Multi-Visit General Use" ticket, and you can use your season passes at any other Six Flags park.

Says right there about half way down. The Multi Visit General Use ticket. Oh well...

Anyways...does anybody have any help about the park... like which rides to hit first...if I should head on to the back of the park and work my way up or what.

Also...does anyone know of any good places to eat in there without paying to much.

Thanks

SFStL isn't usually a place where you have to worry about where to go. Heading to the back and working your way forward works better than the opposite (like most parks).

If you are worried about food, leave the park to eat. There are many choices outside of the park. I usually hit the Taco Bell on the way back home.

In the park: Mooseburger Lodge is new. I haven't heard anything about it and didn't check it out at SFGAm. I always see people knawing on turkey legs, but I haven't ever had one. I'm sure they must be good. Calico Sal's is a pretty good place to get some chicken.

As an ex eployee of SFStL, the turkey legs are probably the "safest" of the foods to eat at the park, if you catch my drift.

As for enjoying the park, I suggest going to Boss first, then to Screamin' Eagle. If you want to ride Thunder River, do so in the morning as the line gets out of hand as the day progresses. Batman and Mr. Freeze lines tend to be shortest around mid-day. Scooby is almost always busy due to the limited capacity. Hurricane Harbor is least busy in the morning and then gets crowded in the afternoon as the temp gets hotter.

I was just there, and Id say definatley hit Batman and Mr. Freeze early, and also Screaming Eagle. You probably would want to hit Scooby doo early also. Other than that you should be all right though, The Boss was a 5-10 min wait the whole time I was there on Saturday, Ninja got up to maybe 30 mins tops at one point and the Mine train shouldnt be bad either.

I always tend to go during the week days instead of the weekend. It is, just like any other park, best not to go on a Friday/Saturday.

If you go Monday-Wednesday, you won't have hardly any waits. I've went every year for the past five or so and the longest I've waited in line was about 10 minutes.

Everytime Batman was pretty much a walk-on if you just chose any seat. Scream-n-eagle was only waiting for about two trains, Freeze maybe two trains, Ninja was a walk-on, and Boss was about 4-5 trains.

You could ride all the coasters at least three times each by going on a weekday if so desired.

Regarding the multi-visit passes; these passes are for two days. They used to have a second-day pass that you could purchase after entering the park for about $17 or so, but they did away with it. It looks like they now have that worked into this "multi-day" pass. By far, I believe that Six Flags has their season pass prices extremely cheap (Holiday World is about $120). If you plan on going to ANY other Six Flags park within this same year, the Season pass is a must. This way you could go to St. Louis twice (or however many times you wanted) and then go to Chicago, Louiseville, or wherever as well. Just pay for parking (parking "season passes" are available for $20 each as well but I believe they are only good for one park).

Good sir I take offense to that comment. That park is far far cleaner then you lead it on to be. The kitchen and resturants are as clean if not CLEANER then most resturants. However I would never get anything if I were you from a cart. In less its frozen and in a closed containor ;).

Sorry to bring this topic back up-to-speed, but I didn't feel the need to create a new topic.

I will be heading to St. Louis here on Thursday.

Does anyone have any updates on the Freeze problems or any other happenings at the park?

Try to tell me with a straight face that Calico's Kitchen is clean...come on try. :) Last time I was in there we were performing "icecapades" on the grease that covered the floor. Fun times...nasty food.

Ahhh those were the days - Red tags rule

Calicos now is clena, it hasnt had an infestastion of insects (wasnt it maggots?) in at least 3 years. I could easily tell you with a straight face that the rest of the food is clean. Seriously it seems like this has been the first year there hasnt been something majorly disguesting.

And does anyone know what accedent happened on Wensday, of last week that caused the ride to be closed for two days and have one of the trains removed?

And Freeze had a crane on it inspecting the top LIM's on Monday after being shutdown on Saturday.

However in the end I still wouldnt eat at Calico's, I can smell the used greese from the office.

When I was there last summer, we hit Mr. Freeze first and got on the ride twice in less than half an hour. It took more time walking the maze to get to the ride than any actual waiting in line. I hope it's running while you are there.

I would skip Batman in the morning. Yeah, it's a quality ride (we have the mirror of it at SFGAm), but it's in the front of the park and the line gets long quick. After Mr. Freeze (again,if open), maybe you could tackle Boss. I absolutley love Screaming Eagle in the day, but be sure to hit it at night as well.

I ate almost entirely outside of the park (minus beverages and a pretzel). There is tons of fast food, a food store, and a Denny's on the main drag in front of the park (that parallels the highway).

Bossstl, that's great news that they finally cleaned up the kitchen. It has been about 3 years since I worked there. Last time that I did though, I can attest that by Halloweekends we were using rotten apples in the Fudgery for the caramel apples, the soda machine at Friar Tucks had clogged pipes because they weren't being cleaned nightly (like they were supposed to) and then like I mentioned before Calico's. I still refuse to eat there, but I think that is because I worked there. Come to think of it, the employee-only restaurant wasn't that clean either.

But like I said that was three years ago and things can improve. Oh and yes it was maggots - totally disgusting. And do you work in the office up at Calico's?

We ate at Mooseburger Lodge on Sat. 7/3. It wasn't great - it wasn't disgusting... it was just lunch. I will say it was overpriced, but that didn't surprise me at all in a Six Flags park. I was surprised at how huge my large soda was. It came in a plastic cup I had to use both hands to carry. Couldn't finish it all.

Although we were there on a Saturday of a holiday weekend, the weather helped in that a good sized rainstorm came through in early afternoon that cleaned out a whole lot of people. We got on everything we wanted to once with not a whole lot of waiting.

To reply to your post, spraker. Freeze is running again, they had a crane to replace 3 or 4 lim motors on the top tower, As well as some lims in the launch tunnel. As far as i know the lims were extremely exspensive, and six flags st. louis maintainance people were pushing it back unless they actually needed to repair the motors.

Oh the grease barrells are still there? Yes they sure have that a nice aroma to them don't they.

Are you up to Blue tag yet? Or are you a red still?

This would be my second season as a blue tag. When I was promoted, they never mentioned the super powers that came with it. ;)

Thanks sfsl-eaglesbit**

We left the park around 5 pm that day.

Turns out, Mr. Freeze was STILL down about half the day. The first thing we rode was the Freeze and one of the ops checking restraints was sloowww... the other guy checking restraints would be done while the other individual was about half done.

It turned out to be alright and the park was more crowded than I thought it would be. I don't know what it is about the Six Flags rides, but even after I got off Freeze I started getting a headache.. right at 10 am in the morning! I could ride anything at Holiday World and didn't get a headache over my two-day trip; even riding the wooden coasters! I don't know why I get a headache at Six Flags so quickly.

Seemed like there were a few items freshly re-painted this season and it looks like some re-tracking was done on Boss on the hill after the brake section in the middle of the ride.

Yea, there has been a lot of retracking on Boss, they retracked the hill after the MCBR, the 3rd hill; also they added some bracing to some parts of the track to reduce the roughness and G-Spikes. It has made a big difference as far as riding, I can tell a big difference from last year....
