Will plan to be there the moment the park opens for 2-3 hours and then return again in the evening after 6. Any advice of where to journey first to avoid lines later on in the heat...assuming that Mr. Freeze gets the longest lines quickest and we should start there? Its probably at the top of the list anyway along with all 3 wood coasters.
I grew up in the Midwest and this will be my first trip back to SFStl since around 1984...anxious to see all the changes and experience now with my kids.
The last few times I've gone have been during the week in the summer. Since Hurricane Harbor is included with the admission here, it seems that on a hot summer day, a large percentage of the cars in the parking lot are guests for the water park more than for Six Flags. Lines are generally short for most of the day giving 2-3 train waits on most coasters, if not less. Mr. Freeze and Scooby Doo have generally been the longest lines I've dealt with, but they've never been more than 30 min. or so. There was one year I stopped in after leaving NE Indiana in the morning. On the way, I stopped and went up in the Gateway Arch. I got to the park around 3 or so and still had time to get in all the coasters and some other rides before the park closed.
