Thanks again everyone for your replies!

I know I promised the next report would be part 2 of my Hollywood Studios photos, but I figured X Flight pictures were a bit more important :b

So lets take a look at X Flight, and some other changes from 2012 at Six Flags Great America!

The Go Karts got a new station this year. Combined with the new coaster as a backdrop, the area looks quite a bit nicer.

I'll hopefully be taking in some of those views of the park and X-Flight this summer. It's been awhile since I've last visited Great America and I think it's time for another visit this year. It's been almost ten years since I last visited and I think it's been long overdue, can't wait! ;)

Again, nice photos Griffin! Hollywood Studios definitely seems to be one of the best Walt Disney World resorts.

I have yet to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, but they have some amazing rides (Tower of Terror, Rock n Rollercoaster, etc) and I really have to visit soon. It reminds me a lot of Universal Studios how the pathways are set up like an actual road, it's really nice!

PS. The Epcot Ball is so photogenic :)

Alright guys, next up in the list of adventures is the St. Louis City Museum!

This was the first day of a 3 day St. Louis trip back in April. I went with my dad, Nathan (kumba830), Jo (Jojo19799) Jon (deathbydinn), his mom, Cameron (Cameron), and his friend Jesse.

Take a look at this place!

Oh City Museum. The most jacked up place on this planet. To add on to that, it seems they add something new every time I visit! ;)


Great trip report again, Griffin.
