Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags St. Louis, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Ever since SFAW closed, it was rumored SFStL would get the park's Intamin Drop Tower, Dungeon Drop. Well, the rumors are now confirmed and the first pieces have arrived.

Why wouldn't you want to go back to SFSt.L

It is one of the best Six Flags parks with a nice rounded selection of roller coasters and rides..

I know for me personally I haven't been back to SFSL because there is nothing there that I really like, except for Freeze....

Batman - Great ride yes, but I don't need to go to SFSL to ride this.
Ninja - Terrible
Mine Train - Terrible
Boss - Terrible
Screamin Eagle - Mediocre at best
Mr. Freeze - GREAT!!! Love this. But I'd rather go to SFOT or SFGadv to ride something similar.

So IMO, probably one of the worst coaster collections at a Six Flags park with the only decent rides being clones.

I actually think SFSL is a really nice LOOKING park, but I've gotten the credits and really there is no need for me to go back until they get something major.

Well, this is great news for this park. SFStL has been long overdue for a drop tower of some sort. Well, it's been long overdue for a lot of things. As Robb said, it's a nice looking park, but it really doesn't offer much. I love Freeze, but not enough to travel that far to ride it when it takes me a shorter time to get to PKI and just a little bit longer to get to SFGAm. Both of those two parks have a far better ride collection. If Boss was in the state it was opening year, then maybe, but it's not.

St. Louis is a pretty good sized market. I've never really understood why more hasn't been done with this park.

The trick for Boss, is ride early in the year. The new wood is always still good and the roughness is at a lesser version.

SFSL is very underrated IMO. They only just need to rid of the Ninja.

I guess i'm just not very opinionated and a lot of the time I just rather list the positive points and leave out most of the negative, but even I have my breaking point.

Even with said I rode The Boss in August of 2003 and I thought it was an awesome ride and really wasn't all that rough. I will say the Gerstlauer train do suck and while the ride was still awesome that if it ride PTCs it would have easily ran the course a few seconds faster, not to mentin a more comfortable ride from the start.


Either way an Intamin Drop Tower will be a great addition even if it was at the expense of the entire BS of AstroWorld being closed

I just had a really, really bad expereince there.

I found the park atmosphere to be terrible, rude/incompetent employees, rude park guests, the rain storm didn't help,etc.

Other then Freeze(which I liked) it was a waste of a day.

I guess I'm just spoiled. I rode the Boss about a week after it opened and it was mindblowing. Fairly smooth, and extremely fast. When I went back in '02, it just didn't pack the same punch. Rougher, and seemed to lose a bit of it's edge. Maybe it was just me.
