Does anyone know where I can download the music/lyrics to this parade? My friend is desperately trying to find it, and Google is no help. Thank you

Nice video. One thing that strikes me as odd is that this may be the only park I have not heard a rumor about for the 50th anniversary addition. Are there any markers, rumors sign of construction etc floating around the area/web?

Six Flags St. Louis Announces SkyScreamer

Six Flags St Louis Announces SkyScreamer for 2011

Experience the newest sensation in tower rides, SkyScreamer comes to Six Flags St. Louis in 2011.

This new swing ride will take you up, up and away high over the park, with your feet dangling and hair blowing.

Towering at 236 feet above the ground, SkyScreamer will be the tallest ride in the park, located near the Screamin' Eagle. Grab a friend and sit two across in an open air swing as you climb to the top of SkyScreamer tower while spinning round and round. At full swing, you'll soar in a 98-foot circle at speeds over 43 mph. By day, you'll have a bird's eye view for miles away. By night, SkyScreamer will light up the night as its lighted arms whirl high above the park.

SkyScreamer will open in Spring 2011.

Re: The Six Flags St. Louis gets a Star Flyer for 2011

Thanks for the news. Great addition for the locals as many will have not ever ridden a Star Flyer previously.

Wow! Five years after these rides become popular in Europe looks like they're really taking the US over next year!

Do we know details on this one? Is it a REAL Star Flyer or more like a Cedar Fair version?

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Excuse my stupidity but what is the difference between a real Star Flyer and Cedar Fair's?

The stats are on the SF website.
They say it will be a Funtime ride and not a Mondial ride like those Cedar Fair Windseekers

A real Starflyer has the seats connected to metal chains and the Mondial Windseekers from Cedar Fair have the seats connected to metal bars/arms.
And the Cedar Fair rides can operate with higher windspeeds.

^ Cedar Fair is getting several rides like star flyers, but made by Mondial. Instead of chains supporting the seats, there are "arms". There are pictures in the threads of the 4 Cedar Fair parks getting (Cedar Point being one.)

;) slow typing here. ^ What they said.
