This is a great spot on the turnaround after the block break.  There's some monster ejection seat airtime in the front right seat so watch out

This is about your only moment on the Boss to catch your breath.  They had the block break turned on heavy in 2000 supposedly due to the trains running at different speeds and are supposed to weaken the brakes a bit when they all run at the same time.

From the first half's twisted and intertwined track you fly past the station towards the park's amphitheater to the helix finale.

After the positive and negative g filled first half to the Boss it's nice to end it with some laterals.  The cue goes right by this and whenever a train flies by everything shakes building up the anticipation as well as fear in the riders in line.

Uh oh...the Boss fired a whole trainload of riders.

After the nice double helix there's a nice double up before hitting the brake run.  The Boss is a spectacular addition to Six Flags St. Louis.  Early in the season it was a bit rough but by the end of 2000 it was a smooth lean mean riding machine!  My hat is off to everyone who worked on this great ride.

I just liked this picture of the train at Six Flags St, Louis so I thought I'd include it.
