The city is self proclaimed beer city. I know Milwaukee is really the real brew town
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Six Flags St. Louis is the self proclaimed Coaster Capital of Missouri.

Titles are everything.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I admittedly laughed too much at this. My girlfriend is a bartender and sent me this text earlier today.

Sorry to tell you, she's not the one. ;) :Pr

Bummer about the worker who lost his hand. It didn't really say if they retrieved the hand and I have no medical expertise so I have no idea if they'd be able to reattach it after that or not,

Also, that Copperhead Strike POV is amazing! Thanks for sharing. Can't wait until I can get a chance to ride it. Looks like fun and I have no idea who would think it doesn't.

Season Passholder night has been officially ANNOUNCED and one thing that stands out to me is . . .
To make the night even sweeter, we'll be offering each attendee one $9.99 Bring-A-Friend coupon- valid any single day from March 23 - May 19, 2019*(while supplies last). Trust us; you’ll be a favorite among your friends!


So, if any of you are Season pass holders and were on the fence about heading to Season Passholder Preview, I think that's incentive enough.

Has anyone visited the park on Easter weekend in the past? If so, how were the crowds?

Also, has anyone had experience staying at Comfort Inn At the Park? Good/bad?
