Fright Fest 2011 at Six Flags St. Louis, Eureka, Missouri

I hate Halloween events at amusement parks.  It's not because I don't like the holiday, actually it's one of my favorites.  I just don't like events like Haunt at the Cedar Fair parks or Fright Fest at the Six Flags parks because it is an impending sign that the coaster season will soon be over.  I hate not being able to hop into the car with Bond and head out for a day of fun getting strapped into a coaster and speeding around it's course.  The off season sucks and Fright Fest means it will soon be here.

Even though the post-season blues were creeping over the horizon Bond and I took a couple of Friday nights and headed to Six Flags St. Louis for some fun.  One of the nights we met up with Six Flags St. Louis' resident coaster enthusiast and our awesome friend Greg for an evening full of rides. 

It's impossible to fight the urge to take a left as soon as we enter Six Flags St. Louis' gates to get a few rides on Evel...I mean American Thunder (Curse you Six Flags for licensing names for coasters then deciding not to pay for them and changing the rides name to something lame) so why fight it.  We grabbed Greg and got our Thunder on.

I have yet to get a bad, lame or even mediocre ride on this coaster.  Yeah I'm not a fan of it's old or new names but it is one hell of a ride that always performs.

During Fright Fest there's always a pretty wicked spider infestation on American Thunder.
