Ha! Amazing update Hanno!!

I love that you caught my master plan to get someone to attack Lou, it worked perfectly :P

EI can't get across how fun City Museum was, I basically just reverted to being (even more of) a child for three hours and I sooo want to do t again soon :D

This update just reminded me that I lost ALL of my City Museum pictures when I lost my camera later that same trip. :(

Being there with TPR in 110 degree weather was amazing and I'm pretty sure I almost died.

Thank you for posting this. This possibly made my day.

Milliseconds after Chuck reverts to the unadulterated terror that was his high school gym class.

All I really remember from this day is heat, sweat and screwed-up metal climbing structures!
If it weren't for Elissa and Robb selling the bottles of water, I think I would have fainted!

Crazy day! :P

Eh, at least I'm not a Jew!

Mwah? Taking pleasure in your misery?? :b :lmao: :b Monte Blanc Tunnel watch your speed BP I lost my rail pass BUFFFFFFET!!

You've had some pretty epic falls in the past... our first visit to Farup comes to mind! But The City Museum was just PURE UNADULTERATED FUN. I cannot think of any other words to describe it. And what's frightening is Hanno's photos probably only captured about half of that place!!

Great TR, Señor Hanno!

God this place was incredible. I'd probably rather go back there than like half of the parks on the trip! Just the most screwed up place ever. It's like as soon as you walk in you simply can't take it all in and just run around screaming. At least that's pretty much what I did. These pictures are excellent! Definitely have to return someday...

^I just don't think I could go back with my regular friends... I'd have to go with TPR peeps to the City Museum. I miss it.

I had never heard of City Museum until I saw it on the original trip report several weeks ago. We live in KC and have season passes to SFSL and went to go to SFSL October 9th. I had reservations about going on a Saturday. It was very crowded and we got one ride on EK (20 minute wait) and Mr. Freeze (30 minute wait). I'm spoiled, I admit it. We usually go on weekdays when it's not busy and wait maybe 5 minutes for most things or walk on. I suggested we go instead to City Museum.

This place is off the hook crazy and fun. We're 43 and 42 and we had one of the BEST times ever. There were a lot of people there, but you didn't have to really wait to do anything. We also got the roof pass (it's 5 something dollars extra) and totally worth it. What I want to know is WHO broke the rope swing on the roof? (and by WHO I'm convinced it happened when the TPR group passed through. A staffer said it happened about 2 or 3 weeks before, which if I did my math correctly places you all there. :cry: ) I'm terrified of heights - go figure, I'll ride a 400 ft tall coaster. I went through the entire Monstro City outside, it was by far the most terrifying, yet fun thing I think I've ever done non-coaster wise. I freaked quite a bit going through the highest point out there. And the bus off the roof was unsettling, but cool too. The Cave Slide is fun, but the "Praying Mantis" slide on the roof is my favorite. It goes so much faster than any of the others. Seriously, if you go to St. Louis, there are 3 things to do if you haven't been before: Six Flags, The Gateway Arch and City Museum! Don't miss it.

Thanks posters for letting me know about this treasure. Peace! KC

^Yeah it's pretty amazing. I really wish someone had bubble wrap to put me in for great photos.

Math is wrong. 2-3 weeks before Oct 9th would still put it a month after we were there. ;)
