Six Flags Help/Directions Needed!!!!!!!

Post by g-ko no otak » Wed, 24 May 1995 04:00:00


My gf and I just purchased a Magnavox TV and thus received two free passes  
to any Six Flags.  We are also driving across the country in a month,  
which just happens to work out perfectly.  So now we need advice.

I think there is a Six Flags in Missouri and one in Texas.  As a child I  
went to SF in Missouri where they have the Screaming Eagle.?  Anyhow,  
we're looking for opinions/directions on these parks, and any other  
suggestions like camping, etc.

On the way back across the country (july) we're stopping in Sandusky,OH to  
visit Cedar Point.  Isn't there a FAQ around for that?  If so please  
direct me to it.  Also info on camping around there.

Thanks for any help, anyone........

Happy Hills,
g-ko

I don't have the specific directions to these parks, but I have some great
advice!  Get a Rand McNally book of road maps.  R/M is very good at
locating amu***t parks on their road maps.  That way, you can check out
the "lesser known" parks along the way on your trip.  

Here's some info:

SFoMA is off of I-44 in Eureka, MO

SFoT is off of I-30 between Dallas and Fort Worth.

CP is at the end of U.S. 6 in Sandusky,Ohio.

Hope this helps!  Happy Park Hopping

Corrections again...

: CP is at the end of U.S. 6 in Sandusky,Ohio.

Ummm, not exactly.  US-6 runs East and West from Sandusky; in fact, US-6
runs all the way across Northern Ohio.  The end of the CP Causeway,
however, is on US-6 in Sandusky; the end of the Chaussee (the road up the
center of the peninsula) is also on US-6 somewhat east of Sandusky.
Actually, the causeway entrance is within a couple of blocks of the
intersection of US-6 and US-250; and a little further from US-6 and OH-4.

     Hey Dave, did you finally finish construction, or did someone

US 6 runs all the way across the United States. Its eastern end is near
Provincetown, Massachusetts, at the end of Cape Cod. Its western end is at
Bishop, California. I guess I shouldn't say "all the way across the U.S.,"
since Bishop is in the Sierra Nevada rather than on the coast. :-)

The Six Flags park in Texas is just south of DFW Airport in Arlington, Texas... just
about halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth, along IH30.  It's got a number of fine
coasters, and a variety of other rides and shows.  The newest ride is a neat thing
called "The Right Stuff", basically an Imax film about jet fighter pilots with motion-base
seats.  It's good!

Well, as far as Six Flags St. Louis I'll give you both directions from
the north and from the south.  We come down for the day whenever we go,
so I don't know about any camping facilities, although there are a number
of hotels close by, including one on site.

FROM THE NORTH:  (we cheat and take a short cut to avoid the traffic)
On highway 40/61, take the Chesterfield Airport exit road.  (It will
double back like a U-turn.)  Follow this all the way to Eureka.  Turn
left onto I-44 heading west.  Six Flags should be visible on your right.  
This is a very pretty scenic drive if you're into this kind of thing.

FROM THE SOUTH:  (coming from, oh, let's say Memphis)

Take I-55 to I-270 (west/north).  Then take I-270 to I-44 west.  Follow
this to Eureka, and look for Six Flags on your right again.

If you need further directions, just let me know!
