As I start making plans for my visits to the St. Louis Six Flags (which I still want to call Six Flags over mid-America), I realized that I joined this forum after my trips last year. So I thought I would share my photos from Six Flags.
The first trip of 2009 was in July with my boyfriend, Shawn and his 10 year old son. His son had NEVER been to an amsuement park and it was a real experience. Sadly, the park was super crowded with hour long waits and then a thunderstorm closed down almost every ride....
I love the M&M steps. Do all Six Flags have these?
The Screamin' Eagle is the park's oldest roller coaster, and the first roller coaster I ever rode (I think I was 7)
The Log Flume is a favorite for everyone....
I met Sylvester the Cat!
Good to know...
My boyfriend is all excited about riding the Ninja. I am not sure why because it is a very mild coaster...but fun!
The second trip to Six Flags was for my birthday in October while Fright Fest was going on. This day was a lot more fun! It was just Shawn and I (his son had returned to live with his mother) and we walked onto every ride. All of the water rides were closed and it was a chilly day. Shawn dyed his hair green just for the day. So when you see him with green hair, realize it was just for fun for one day and he washed it out later.
Entering the park...
This Taz was all about Shawn's green hair and kept following him around until we took a photo. It was SOOOO funny!!
I am not a big fan of "Mr. Freeze" (which is the blue thing sticking straight up in the first photo) but I will ride it.
At night they make the big ferris wheel into a jack-o-lantern, but it hard to photograh because of all the trees that are in the way.
Oh well...there are some of my photos. Enjoy!
