Thanks ever so much Hanno! As always, I love your pictures. I had a BLAST that day, but truly almost melted :) Those sprayers (they weren't misters - they were like garden hoses set on Shower) were lifesaving!

City Museum = AWESOME

I was only bruised from falling through the re-bar whale outside of the caves - and the airplanes just totally freaked me out. It was whilst crawling through those that I realized exactly what I was doing.

I missed the six-foot man eating chicken. Oh, well, . . .

I enjoyed Six Flags St. Louis, despite the outrageous heat and humidity that day. Mr. Freeze is the best shuttle coaster this side of the old Schwarzkopf loopers, Evel Knievel is a solid GCI, and the Scooby Doo dark ride is probably the best of the bunch. Next time, I'll have to check out the water park.

Great pictures, as usual, Hanno--thanks!

Great pictures Hanno. Glad I came to St Louis for the nonsense. Highlight of my summer!

Day 7: Holiday World.

This will sound borig (i guess) but yet another awesome day. I had been to the park in 07 amd had some great memories. This time it was more relaxing (no rush to get credits) and more time to enjoy the park.

We also got some amazing tour time and nice photo-ops. All in all yet another amazing day.

Pictures are posted in the order that they were taken during the day.
Feel free to comment.

Haha, I look like I'm not enjoying the ride at all. Though by that point I'm ready to get off...

Great photos Hanno. Thanks for sharing. Is it June yet?
