Holiday In The Park 2019 at Six Flags St. Louis, Eureka, Missouri

This wall wasn't across from Sky Screamer when we visited in November.

It turns out that after decades of rumors touting the rides demise and it being down for most of 2018 and all of 2019 the Tidal Wave finally crashed out and came to an end.

With Tidal Wave now jut a memory the question is what will replace it?

Stretching from the Boomerang all the way all over to Six Flags St. Louis' bone yard and occasional haunted hay ride, Tidal Wave took up a decent plot of land that can be used for something fun.

Asking a few ride ops the rumor to replace it in 2021 or after is a Mack Rides Power Splash like Six Flags Over Texas is getting for 2020.  My hopes are that this is just a rumor.  While a Power Splash; which is half coaster and half shoot the chutes ride would be fun, with a large splashdown as part of the ride it would only operate from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Six Flags St. Louis needs a ride that can operate from it's March opening and all the way through New Years Day.

If it were up to me I'd use this plot of land for the station of a large hyper coaster that would run down the parks eastern border, turn around over Hurricane Harbor before speeding back up the hill.  With the parks topography put to use they could get over 200 feet without having to build a lift that tall.  Of course they don't listen to me but is anyone from Six Flags wants to seek my input just drop me an email.
