Great place to go all year round Pros: So much to do Cons: Too busy + going bankrupt

Worst

The park could be kept up alittle bit better, than it is.

Online tickets and dirty park 6/20/2010

I purchased tickets online and their software messed up (I've found other reviews since that said same thing) and after a long search for any customer support, I contacted them. They wouldn't help at all. In addition, it is really dirty and overpriced park. more

Thrill seeking, St. Louis style 8/11/2006

Six Flags is good for a day's outing. There is a lot to see and do. However, I have to admit something up front, I hate roller coasters! Several of the rides are not suitable for the younger set, but I do have thrill-seeking children and one crazy husband. They love the thrill rides! There are a ton of things to do while you are there. My favorite area is Hurricane Harbor. There are water slides and tube rides as well as a play place for kids. My family likes the Lazy River to tube in, but when the park is busy, you can only go around one time, then you have to give up your tube and get back in line. Hook's Lagoon is a fun place to play with your kids. It consists of a five story tree house and eight water slides. You have to be less that 48" for the pirate rides and at least 42" tall for the slides. This area also has a 1,000 gallon water dump bucket that that is awesome on a hot day. We also really enjoy Hurricane Bay. It is a 30,000 square foot wave pool. Only rental tubes are allowed in this pool, and the pool is cleared every hour for several minutes for a safety break. If you go to Hurricane Harbor, just make sure you are wearing swim wear if you want to do the slides or any of the other rides, as they won't let you on in street clothes. Another favorite area is the 1904 World's Fair, which is home to the Colossus: an 18 story Ferris Wheel. You can pretty much see the entire park from the top. Very cool. The Warner Brother's Back Lot area has a couple of roller coasters that my husband loves. One is the Batman: a huge inverted (yep, upside down on this one) steel roller coaster. Another one that he likes is the Ninja. Six Flags calls this the black belt of roller coasters, it has a double corkscrew among other things. My daughter's favorite roller coaster is the Boss. It is a 122 foot tall wooden roller coaster featuring a 150 foot first drop, and a 570 degree helix. She says this is an awesome ride! It isn't in the Back Lot area though. If you want to ride a water ride, but forgot your swim wear, you can ride the Thunder River, which is a white water rapids boat style ride in the main park. You have a good chance of getting soaked on this one. My favorite ride as a kid was Tom's Twister: a centrifugal force ride where the floor actually drops from beneath you leaving you suspended mid air! Other fun things to do include the Speed O'Drome: go carts at additional cost. Must be at least 58" to drive. There is a ride the is similar to a bungee jump, where you are strapped in and launched from a 152' tall tower and free fall about 50' feet before swinging pendulum style. I don't know the particulars on this one, but I think the cost is somewhere in the $25 ranger per person. I have never done it, but it is very cool to watch. A couple of other rides that bear mentioning are the Log Flume, which is a canoe style ride fit for the entire family, and the Mr. Freeze: a roller coaster that runs forward and then in reverse. Not for the faint of heart -- this one pulls 4 Gs! There is also the Screamin' Eagle: a 110' tall wooden coaster. This one is good because there is seldom a long line. One of the two areas for little kids is Looney Tunes Town and the other is Bugs Bunny National Park. Looney Tunes is an older kids play area. There are some rides for preschoolers there. Bugs Bunny National Park is new, I believe this year. It is cool, because it has rides suitable for little kids, but they are large enough that older siblings or even parents can go on them -- and, yes, enjoy them. There is also a huge climber play area. If you plan a trip to Six Flags St. Louis, be warned that food inside the park is expensive. However, you can leave the park to eat elsewhere and return. My advice is to bring a cooler and leave it in the car though; it is too expensive and too crowded to eat in the park. You can get your hand stamped to leave and re-enter. Some people even bring the little bbq grills and cook out on the grassy areas around the parking lot. Contact information: http://www.sixflags.com/parks/stlouis/index.asp more

Still fun as an adult 4/16/2006

I have a blast every time I go to Six Flags, even though I don’t ride the big thriller rides like Mr. Freeze or Batman. The only roller coaster I ride here is The Boss and it leaves me (happily) sore every time for days to come from the bumps and jiggles. The first drop is great. The water park is also getting more attractive by the year, especially after the recent addition of Tornado, which is an excellent ride. Obviously, pack your own lunch because food is way overpriced in this park, as it is in all other parks - $17 for 2 slices of pizza and 2 small drinks! It’s best to go to Six Flags early or late in the season since it’s packed all day and all night during the summer. more

six flags 4/4/2006

Compared to the Six Flags in Gurnee, IL this Six Flags isn’t as great but it still is fun. Offers roller coasters and children rides. I have been there twice and the lines have not been too extremely long,. My favorite part of this park is the water park! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the water rides! Going down the tube slides and going in the tube tornado thing is just awesome! And it’s great to be lazy and relax in the lazy river and get crazy in the wave pool. The price is great when you have a coupon and if you are determined you can get both the rides and the water park rides done all in one day! more

Better than Chicago one! 11/8/2005

This park has a lot to offer a family- especially during the hot midwest summers. You do have to brave many lines- but that's expected in an amusement park. There's a lot to do- for all ages of kids. The roller coasters (especially Mr. Freeze) are pretty good. The nice thing is you can go and change in your vehicle and then go to the waterpark which is excellent. I spent the day there in July with a group of middle schoolers and they had the time of their lives! more

Stay in a hotel and save a bundle 10/20/2005

If you stay in a nearby hotel and take the kids to Six Flags, they will see it as a vacation - it's a huge amusement park wtih even rides for the tiniest tots and loads of family fun everywhere. more

Six Flags St Louis 9/26/2005

I have been going here forever. When we were younger my mom would take us here and now I take my kids here. They have lots of great roller coasters, a children's looney tunes area and now my favorite Hurricane Harbor. This is a huge water park. So not only do you get to ride all of the rides you can also hang out at the pool. The best way to go is get a season pass. It usually pays for it self after 2 visits. Make sure and visit if you are in St. Louis you won't be disappointed. more

Six Flags 9/24/2005

THis is a fun place to take kids. There is a water park and an amusement (ride park). The daily admission covers both, so I would make sure to plan to spend the entire day. Lines can be long on weekends, so go during the week if you can. Also, food in the park is so expensive, so you are better off getting your hand stamped and going to eat somewhere nearby. more

Good time! 9/13/2005

My 4 kids had fun! But... lines were way too long, prices were outrageous, (food was good). The free children's "reading" tickets from school were nice! (saved money for 2 kids) Still I'm not sure the price was worth the fun, as kids left disappointed that they had not been able to ride more of the rides! more

A Full Park of Family Fun 8/21/2005

A great place for family fun. There is an assortment of roller coaster, water rides and other fun stuff for kids to do. The Screaming Eagle is the long standing attraction at this park but kids seem a lot more interested in the Ninja and Batman rides now. It's expensive to get in and the games and food are expensive once you're in. But even the pickiest person will find a ride, restaurant or game they enjoy. more

Scary rides 8/13/2005

if u like scary rides, this is the place to go. I have friends from Chicago and Memphis who would drive here for the weekend. The park opens daily. There are many packages available. Season Pass is by far the most economical. They just added the new Tornado to their Hurricane Harbor Water park. Summer Splash!! more

Awesome place to visit 7/7/2005

Oh my gosh I have been going here since I was so little. They sell a season pass that you can usually get a coupon at Schnucks for and get one for like $65 and that will give you unlimited visits all year round.I love this place not only does it have a huge water park now but also a park that is all rides too. The only big downfall wiht out a pass it is it is expensive around $30 a adult and around $25 a child,plus they charge like $10 to park also butooyu can buy a pass for that too for around $20.They do run deals allot like bring in a coke can and save half price but you for sure have to visit at least one time a year more
