Wow, I hope I get to come up for some drop-ride madness! I love drop-rides once I'm off, but pulling down the restraints and making the slow ascent.....

It's nice to see that SF repainted the ride!

^Umm... Wow, I thought it would be Acrophobia, because...

Oh well, it's Six Flags!

Everyone believes that it was intended for the tower to be called Acrophobia hence the color scheme...but due to Shapiro's demand for more Justice League DC characters the name was changed to *of coarse* Superman. At least it fits in with the Illinois theme. ;)

Awesome I could really give a care about the name of the drop tower. I hope that the balloon ride wont have a height limit because the one at Silver Dollar City is fun. If you really get it spinning it rules.

SIX FLAGS ST. LOUIS ANNOUNCES LARGEST ADDITION IN PARK'S HISTORY
Local Theme Park to add New Family Section, Thrill Ride and Entertainment
Package in 2006 As Company Celebrates 45 Years of Family Fun!


St. Louis – As Six Flags Theme Parks prepares to celebrate 45 years of family fun and entertainment, Six Flags St. Louis is set to add the largest number of rides, attractions and family entertainment at one time in the Eureka based theme park’s history! These exciting additions include a new and unique family section, Bugs BunnyTM National Park; the extreme free-fall ride, SUPERMANTM Tower of Power and an entertainment package including JUSTICE LEAGUETM characters, fireworks and a daily parade! “We are very excited to get this rare opportunity to introduce a new attraction package that offers so many different elements for so many members of our audience,” states David Roemer, General Manager of Six Flags St. Louis. “This year we are truly adding something for everyone from little kids and teens to young adults and parents that will make their visit to Six Flags St. Louis a priceless experience.” The new additions combine to offer 10 new rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages and offer the perfect compliment to the park’s existing line up of family attractions and thrill rides.

Bugs BunnyTM National Park
The first new section to be added to the park in nearly 20 years, Bugs Bunny National Park gives families a place that they can stay together and play together during their visit to Six Flags! Unlike most children’s areas, this specially designed area offers rides and attractions that parents can enjoy and participate in along with their children. Family rides include hot air balloon replica’s which take riders up, up and away; a flying rocket ship; a miniature drop ride; spinning tea cups; a rockin’, spinning tugboat and miniature train. Parents and older siblings can also participate in a 3-story tree house play structure as well as interactive water play fountain. If parents just want to watch, the pint-sized airplanes and our swinging ship are just for the little ones.

Bugs Bunny National Park also offers amenities including the Character Café serving family favorites, Ranger Station featuring souvenirs geared for younger guests and restrooms so fun seekers don’t have to leave the area.

SUPERMANTM Tower of Power
SUPERMAN Tower of Power, is an extreme free fall ride that will take thrill seekers’ breath away! SUPERMANTower of Power will test even nerves of steel as riders are slowly carried up to the top of the 230-ft tower while seated four across in ski-lift style chairs that face outward leaving their feet dangling in the open air. With a bird’s eye view of the park from this towering mass of steel, guests are suspended for several seconds of gut wrenching, muscle tensing anticipation before the impending drop, a 23-story plunge at speeds in excess of 60-mph! This breath-taking, white-knuckle free fall ends with a Super Heroes landing and riders lining up for another encounter with SUPERMAN Tower of Power!

More Family Entertainment
In 2006, Six Flags St. Louis not only offers more ride thrills than ever, but guests will experience a day of fantasy and awe unlike any other! Anyone who ever dreamed of leaping tall buildings in a single bound, having super human powers or saving the world will get the chance to meet some of their favorite JUSTICE LEAGUE characters in person this summer at the theme park. JUSTICE LEAGUE Super Heroes will take time out from defending good against evil to pose for photos and sign autographs for their loyal supporters. The Super Heroes will also take part in a daily parade featuring the Looney Tunes characters and other park celebrities amid music and fanfare. And a memorable day must have a perfect end with a nightly fireworks show filled with lights, music and magic! It’s a summer of new experiences like never before at Six Flags St. Louis!

hmm.. so they're gonna call that ride Superman, huh? Even though the colors don't match the superman theme AT ALL? That seems a little strange.. Oh well, at least SFSTL is actually getting new things--the park has been long overdue for some new stuff.
