^^I hope it stays in your good graces, it really is a cool layout and not as rough as people claim, and I always ride in back for the drops. And yeah, also love Screamin' Eagle. Rumbling along through the woods in the dark with that floater then the drops after the 2 turns...all of it is so fun. I love our wood collection.
^Great description...always glad to hear from those who appreciate The Boss.
I wouldn't be surprised if Boomerang was running the following day, since it was testing at the close of the park. At least maintenance was still doing their best at the end of the night. This was my first visit this year, but I know last year we only saw it running one time. It came back online after a break down and Emily and I jumped in the front car for our one and only ride. After that it broke down again.
I'm sure it's running more consistent as TNT says, which is a good thing. We've just never had good luck with it, not that we really ever want to ride again.
I will also say that Fireball was up and running by the end of the night. I can't comment if it was up and running during the morning or afternoon.
So what's the reasoning for so many rides being down so often? I go once a summer, and on my previous visit just about every ride was down. Not kidding. My boys, who go all the time, say its always like this.
So what's the reasoning? Maintenance? Cost? Maintenance and cost? Apathy? Poor management? Lack of employees? Lack of good employees?
It really was a sad situation. I could go on and on about how long it took to get into the park, or how bad the food service was, or the overall look of the park (weeds and poor landscaping, peeling paint, trash) but at the end of the day it comes down to rides. And very few rides were operating. I don't know how this is acceptable at all. The park looks to be in serious decline.
It is my guess our park is insignificant compared to the other larger parks in the chain. Six Flags St Louis is an afterthought at the Corporate level. If I am wrong then that's fine but that the way it appears to me. I wish the park was owned locally.
