Six Flags St. Louis
July 29, 2006
With two years since my last visit to Six Flags St. Louis and having
planned a day trip to Branson the next day with my friend Greg We sped over
to Six Flags St. Louis for a couple of hours. The big thing I wanted
to see was how the park had changed under Six Flags new ownership.
While I'd hate to have the job of sitting up there in the hot July sun it
was a pleasant surprise to see security out there watching the parking lot.
Since they no longer run the trams Six Flags might as well give you something
in return for the $10 it costs to park there.
This was also a pleasant thing to see. I guess a certain little amusement
park that went smoke free has started a much needed trend in the amusement
park industry. Now if they'd only start offering free soft drinks
with admission I'd be really happy.
I really like most of the Six Flags parks but the extreme mismanagement
by the previous board had me more than a bit cynical that the chain could
be turned around. I have to say that at least at Six Flags St. Louis
there is a new attitude that I haven't experienced in decades. Yes,
they actually act like they care about their customers.
