In early August I had an appointment with my orthopedic surgeon in St. Louis so instead of heading back and getting about an hour of work I chose to hit Six Flags for the third time this year.  Here's some pictures from that day.

Mr. Freeze is St. Louis's newest coaster due to open in 1997 but didn't open till 1998 due to problems with their linear induction motors which launch this coaster.  This picture is of the train coming down from it's over banked turn which turns you upside down twice forwards and backwards.

This is the first and fourth loop on Mr. Freeze.  It's called a top hat.  All in all Mr. Freeze isn't a great coaster because it is very rough especially on the backwards run.

Here's Mr. Freeze diving out of the top hat.

After being launched through the top hat you turn around in this seriously over banked turn that flips you over.  Then you dive to the ground and straight up the spike where the train stalls and you fall backwards through it all again!

Here's another picture of the turn around.  Mr. Freeze is ok but it isn't that re-rideable due to roughness.  If you're going for a ride ask for a front seat ride because the visuals are superb (going straight down and straight up into the sky).  Six Flags should have spent the $15 million dollars on a wooden coaster and many improvements like spinning rides and other rides that this park lacks.
