I just got home from my four hour drive from SFSTL. I arrived at the
park around 9:45 to find minimal crowds which was good because I didn't want a
packed park after driving for four hours through severe storms. I went and
bought my out of market season pass for the great rate of $41.99 and got in the
park. I first went to find the Season Pass processing place but got side
tracked and hit Mr. Freeze.
I had a one train wait with one train running. I am sorry I didn't see you Ron
or was that you that was up in the control tower sorry I couldn't see you it
was kinda dark. Mr. Freeze my first ever ride on it and it was a good coaster
thought the launch would be more intense. Other than that it was good. I love
going through the tophat in reverse. I was very surprised at how compact the
Next I went and got my pass processed a 10 minute wait.
Then I hit the Boss. About a five minute wait with two trains running. Where
is the third train? I never saw it all day and they could of used it later in
the day. I thought the Boss was a great rollercoaster. The best at SFSTL.
Its still not my number one but very close. I came back later in the day to
get one final ride on the Boss. I had about a 30 minute wait but it was worth
it. Man after this thing warms up it gets better and better. The intensity
was great. The airtime was great. The laterals was great. It has a good
mixture of everything. Its tied for number two on my list with Shivering
Timbers. I wish I could of rode the Boss at night. That would be awesome.
After that I went to the Screamin Eagle. I saw Jim Wolgamuth. It was nice to
meet you and I am sorry we couldn't talk longer. I rode the Eagle twice and I
think it could use a little retracking and some grease. It still produced a
decent ride with some airtime.
River King Mine Train
After that I hit the River King Mine Train just to ride it again. What a great
finale. It has some good laterals and some kinda hurt with those unpadded
Arrow cars. All in all not bad for a five minute wait.
Then I hit one of the longest waits of the day and get this it was for Ninja.
Well when we got there they were just taking the second train off for repairs
or low ridership. I think it was low ridership well that took about 15 minutes
then I rode it. Its an ok ride not as much headbanging as I remember but still
some. The headchopper with the chain is the greatest part I think. I thought
the Ninja has 3 trains but I only saw two in sight. Where is the third train?
I skipped Batman because I've ridden it plenty of times plus the wait looked
pretty long. I had a great day at the park. I finally got rid of my winter
coaster DTs. The season has started and everything is just warming up. Please
excuse some of the errors if there is any because I drove over 8 hours total
today and well its been a long day if you know what I mean but its always worth
it for rollercoasters.
