^^ I hear ya. I grew up in Houston and Then lived in San Antonio and now I live in Phoenix. So I have experienced 100° with 90% humidity in Houston to 110°and dry in Phoenix. I spent my summers at Astroworld and WaterWorld and then college years working at SFFT.

In any case, Sfstl has a water park for when it gets really hot out.

The day we had in St. Louis during the Road to Cedar Point TPR trip was one of the hottest days I've ever had (only an Italy day and the Deep South(?) day was worse). It's definitely the humidity that kills you.

^I know what you mean. I was at SFStL for the ridiculously hot day during the Mid-America Tour--just about as hot and humid as that day at Mitsui Greenland (Japan Trip) in 2007.

With the backwards Batman news no coming out about SFGAm, does SFStL pull it out too, as was rumored back in the fall?

^^That day, with its 117° heat index, still lives on in infamy. That's why I'm all for keeping water rides in the dry park.

I think they will keep it exclusive at SFGAm for a year and then try it at other parks.

2013- Used Boomerang coaster
2012- New waterslide/Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast
2011- New Starflyer
2010- No new attraction/general improvements
2009- New waterslide
2008- New GCI wooden coaster
2007- New Gerstlauer spinning coaster
2006- Used Intamin freefall, new kids area (mix of new and used rides)
2005- New waterslide

That's six years with a brand new attraction, one year with a mix of new and used, one year with just a used attraction, and another season with no new rides/slides. It's not like they have received used ride after used ride like Six Flags Astroworld did before closing, or how Dorney Park has been getting from CF the past few years.

Of these additions, 3 were in the waterpark. I don't use the waterpark, but I am sure they were good additions. Frankly, I don't think the waterpark has done much to help attendance (at least not for the long term) considering the fact that the parks attendance has been lower after the addition of the water park compared to before it.

The American Thunder although a good coaster does not address what the park needs (a signature steel coaster); therefore, wrong addition to the wrong park, I would have preferred having different trains for the Boss over this. The Gerstlauer spinning coaster is a family coaster it has its place. The Intamin freefall has a problem with one of the cars getting stuck on the top. The Excalibur (a used ride added in 2003) has been having problems and is rumored to need work or possible replacement. That is two of our most intense flats added within the last ten years having operating issues. The problem is many of our older flats are getting worn (Highland Fling) and replacing old with old just kicks the can down the road. Also our Starflyer is one of the shortest of its kind and has been having break down issues as well.

Concerning Astroworld even in their later years were not exclusively used ride additions. They received a new SLC in 1999 (not a good coaster but by definition it was new and added more to Astroworld than what the American Thunder or Boomerang will for SFSTL) and they received a new S&S Fly Swatter.

I am not demanding a new ride every year, but I do ask that if they are going to add a used ride, to add one that functions as well as a new one, one that has the potential to last, and one that addresses what the park needs. In my perspective, the general improvements in 2010 were more valuable than what this addition will be as this will use up our budget to remove the bumper cars, as well as to paint, ship, and install this coaster. Frankly, the announcement of the Batman in Reverse would have been the perfect excuse to perform the paint job on SFSTL's Batman and fix up the queue area for this year.
