It moves fairly slow. I would say that it takes about 3 min to reach the top.
I actually felt my ears pop while going up to the top of the Arch. When I got down they were fine. Our daughter just loved it. I would highly recommend it for anyone to check out when hitting the St. Louis area.
Todays update is of six flags middle America(aka six flags St Louis).
Welcome to six flags....now pull out your wallet.
The park is really nice. This is what you see when you enter the park.
My daughter loves the looney toons.
The park has a huge ferris wheel, but we skipped it because it was a very hot day.
This ride was not open today. I was really bummed out because I really enjoy this ride. I believe this is the only ride of this type around.
Ok, this is one thing that really pissed me off. The park opens at 10:30, but the season pass center does not open till 11am?...wtf? So we had to stand in line for 45 min because there were already 200 other people waiting as well.
This is the line that greeted us at the season pass center.
To there credit, they did have a lot of processing stations.
First coaster of the day.
Each of the coasters has a cup holder for you to use at no cost. I love this, and think more parks should do this. We ended up buying a souvinier cup since we did not have to worry about what we were going to do with it while riding.
Merry go round.
The tunnels were a great escape from the blazing hot sun. I really do miss the tunnels at kings island.
This is the scooby doo dark ride. It's one of the better dark rides out there.
The line is has a nice theme to it.
How to use your fright light.
Some of the bad guys you have to shoot.
I have never been beaten.
Does anybody know why they are not running the tea cup ride? It looks as if it had not run in some time, as there were weeds growing all over it.
They have a nice area for kids.
Next credit of the day was the mine ride.
Someone was telling me that they used to have stand up trains on this ride.
As you can see, the park was not that buisy today.
Rush street flyer. My daughter loves this ride.
I could be wrong, but I think this is the tower ride from kentucky kingdom.
This coaster is great. It's very underrated.
It's also a very nice looking coaster.
Unfortunatly, this was our next coaster.
The boss has a great layout, but it's a brutal coaster.
So that's what people do with all of those rubber band things.
One good thing about the boss, is that they have the bottle holders as well.
They were only running one train.
It's such a ruff ride, that they even have a wheel chair at the exit.
I think a lot of people can use that wheel chair right about now.
Whirl and hurl.

I see you twisted sister trains.
More pictures from six flags St Louis comming soon.
Superman Tower of Power used to be Dungeon Drop at Astroworld.
Yes, back in the 80's when River King had two tracks they added stand-up trains on one side. It didn't last long as someone fell out and was killed. Question is which track was the stand up track - the current one at SFStL or the one currently known as Big Bad John at Magic Springs?
I highly agree with your assessments of Screamin' Eagle and The Boss. Eagle is very underrated. The Boss' layout is great. I loved all the big drops but I wonder what it would be like with Timberliners.
