Six Flags St. Louis
Daredevil Daze 2010
October 2, 2010
Daredevil Daze at Six Flags St. Louis is not one of the biggest coaster
enthusiasts but for a bunch of us it has become more than just a great
time to ride coasters but more of a family reunion. Well, more accurately
a Negative-G family reunion as a little more than half the attendees
were folks from the Negative-G Forums.
When we pulled into the empty parking lot we noticed a huge group
of people hanging around and talking. I turned to Carrie and said "I
bet that's our group" and I was right. We pulled up to find
Illinois Mike, Alabama Mike, Josh, Kevin, Allie, Beth and a few others hanging
out and getting ready for a day of fun.
The plan for the day was to have exclusive ride time on Superman Tower
of Power and the Screaming Eagle an hour before the park opened. So
while everyone got there and checked in there was more hanging out and then
when it was time we were let into the park and herded up the hill to ride.
Todd is a wimp. He's scared of heights and being from Louisville having
heard all about that accident there on their drop tower he did not want
to ride Superman. What are friends for besides razzing each other
into doing things we normally wouldn't do so I got Todd on Superman.
Yes Todd survived his brush with Superman Tower of Power. He
whined so much all the way up even his son Travis told him to take it easy.
He screamed like a little girl all the way down and never came near the
ride the rest of the day. At least Travis loved it.
