Six Flags St. Louis
April 2 & 3, 2010
After a very cold and very snowy winter it was nice to finally be able to
head to a park so that we could feel the sun on our faces and the
wind fly through our hair (or what little I have left) as we ride coasters.
Unfortunately for us, not Six Flags St. Louis we weren't the only ones wanting
to enjoy the sunny and warm spring day at Six Flags St. Louis as thousands
of other people showed up to ride as well.
Normally, even on slightly busy days you have to wait a few minutes in line
to get into the parking lot but this time every lane was full with packed
cars and it took us about twenty minutes just to get into the parking lot.
Thankfully we had already acquired our passes so instead of waiting in another
long line for tickets or to buy our passes we eventually made it through
the gates to where we were supposed to wait up for a few friends from the
Mike, otherwise known as "Illinois" on the Forums and Greg otherwise
known on the forums as "Greg" were to meet up with us. We
ran into Mike and then spotted Greg who was stuck in the insanely long line
to purchase his season pass.
Greg was going to be quite a while so we were off to Batman to start out
the season. On the way we spotted this change. This plaza used
to have a big building for caricature artists but for some reason it was
removed in the off season. We did notice a lot of little infrastructure
improvements around the park like some new paint, new stands and they even
redid the parking lot.
