Next year, I'm looking at flying into St. Louis Friday night, catch a Cardinals game, spend Saturday at SFStL, and fly home Sunday night. The plan would be to spend some time at the City Museum on Sunday morning/afternoon. How much time is recommended at the City Museum? Would it be better to do the City Museum on Saturday and Six Flags Saturday night/Sunday morning? Note: my SF Platinum pass should still be in effect.


Personally I’d do the cards game, city museum and the zoo on Saturday. Then Sunday at SIx Flags.

Lack of a cohesive DC area maybe. Right now it’s just random DC themed rides spread out, other than Freeze and JL with the DC circle.

That's what makes it weird for me. To have half the park (Britannia/DC circle) have a DC theme even though Batman, Joker, and Superman, DC's most famous characters, are in other areas. Of course, it's Six Flags, so I wouldn't be shocked at all if it happens.

Re-themeing a one year old ride for one thing.

Okay.... so in your head there are Six Flags executives, who you will remember work for Six Flags, who are going to say "Aw man, we would re-theme this area into our super popular Screampunk District that has made us tons of money, but gee golly gosh darnit, we just put in that Supergirl ride based on that DC theming that also makes us tons of money. Welp, guess that plan's off them."

Yes. Because theming an area to match a ride you just put in makes far more sense than re-theming a ride you just bought and the whole area.

Plus I know what’s happening so I don’t have to make wild guesses. :)

Seeing people whine in the King's Island thread that their park's newly announced gigacoaster isn't unique enough makes me want to punch through my hat.

Meanwhile I'm sitting over here ready to talk myself into the tilt-o-whirl we are about to receive.

Yep one of those. I’ve stated before I work in maintenance at the park.
