Once again, gorgeous photos. Man, do I miss this park; haven't been in ages (Powder Keg was still Buzzsaw Falls... yikes). Easily one of the most beautifully landscaped theme parks in the world.

Does Powder Keg have an audio system because I think I saw an audio box on the back of the train in one of the pictures.

^ not sure about the audio system and the box.. i think i did see some onride camera's.. but my brain might not be sharp enough anymore since it's been a while..

anyway.. time for another update.

Day 5 started with a fun stop/visit to the St. Louis Gateway Arch.
I love the fact that we got the opportunity to see something "cultural" next to all the coasters and parks while doing this trip.
Coming from abroad this is one of the somewhat famous things and places to see (i guess)

A lot of people on the group took the "elevator" system up the arch to check out the view etc. having read some reports (and seen some pictures of the capsules) i decided not to (stupid me)
I think i missed out.. but it was nice to relax a little and not have to worry about crowds.. being claustrophobic and some other stuff..

After this it was time for one of the most amazing things i've ever seen in the US.. City Museum. Maybe more on that later.

But first some pictures from the stop at the Arch..

Wow! I thought that thing got destroyed in Category 6 "Day of Destruction!" Or did you visit before it was destroyed. Perhaps they rebuilt it already? Hmmmmmmmmmmm? ;)

Meh!

Awesome pictures Hanno. They really show the immenseness of the arch. I can't wait to see your take on the City Museum. =)

Thanks for the reply Guy, i think i remember seeing that movie.. and i think i remember another one as well...
for some reason i expected a big water area in front of it (and not the river next to it) movies...

Anyway, anybody else interested in a City Museum update?
