Opening Day 2017 at Six Flags St. Louis, Eureka, Missouri

Like Christmas, the 4th of July or Halloween opening day of Six Flags St. Louis; my local park,  is a sacred and momentous day of the year.

Unlike Groundhog Day, Six Flags opening day signifies that winter is really behind us and the warm sun drenched days of spring and summer are just around the bend.

With the first few rays of spring sun greenery began to emerge from a winters slumber.

Despite winters lingering chill still hanging in the air we were greeted by flowers as we made our way deeper and deeper into the confines of Six Flags St. Louis.

It is not flowers or greenery that we were in search of although they are nice and do add to the mood.  Bond, Brian, Travis, Greg and myself were in search of thrills...the kind of positive and negative-g, acceleration laden and gravity defying thrills that coasters give.  We were in store for plenty of that this day.
