News & Rumors


& Six Flags Hurricane Harbor
St. Louis, MO
Six Flags Theme Parks




icon_STOPPark News - (3/13/20) Six Flags St. Louis just announced that the park will temporarily suspend operations effective March 14 until at least the end of the month. At that time they will evaluate the status of the COVID-19 spread and determine the best course of action.

    (2/24/20) Based on a Facebook post by Six Flags St. Louis, it appears that the park is working on some kind of remodel and clean-up project for the main entrance gate.

    (12/8/19) Bad news… well… more bad news for Six Flags St. Louis fans. Guests to the park this weekend were disturbed to see that the park had begun to take down the park’s Tidal Wave water ride. You can see big sections of the ride missing in the two photos submitted by different readers below.


    (11/27/19) A reader dropped by Six Flags St. Louis last weekend for Holiday in the Park and discovered that the park seeming to be taking part of the Log Flume apart… hopefully to perform some off-season maintenance and refurbishment. Check it out in the photos below.



    (11/12/19) A reader sent in new pictures from Six Flags St. Louis showing off that the gondolas have been remounted back onto the Xcalibur ride structure at last. Unfortunately guests have been waiting all season for this to take place, so you can pretty much guarantee that it won't reopen before the end of the year, but this does make it look like it should reopen for the 2020 season at least.

    (7/7/19) A couple of quick updates regarding the state of things at Six Flags St. Louis. I’m told that workers are still painting Xcalibur and they hope to put the cars back on when the painting is finished. Unfortunately this also seems to be the longest ever paint job, as it would seem like this could have all been done long ago or over the off season, so I’m not confident about the status of Xcalibur just yet.
    I’m told that Thunder River had some issues that needed to be addressed earlier this year, but now that they have been taken care of, they have returned the water back to the ride and are beginning the process of testing and getting it inspected and signed-off for operations.
    Tidal Wave is closed for the season, and there is said to be a sign in front of the ride stating that it is closed for the year to undergo an extensive rehab. Unfortunately the rumor going around now also says that it may not be worth the cost to refurbish the aging ride and the park may opt to remove it instead. I’m guessing they’re waiting to find out what their budget and capital project are for 2020 before making a final call on the fate of Tidal Wave or Xcalibur.
    As for the various closed shops and food stands, I’ve also been told that the park is finding it extremely difficult to hire staff, despite raising the starting pay rates for seasonal positions. So if things are closed, it may simply be that they are unable to staff these stations at all.


2020 - Catwoman Whip - (8/29/19) Six Flags St. Louis will add Catwoman Whip for 2020, but unlike other parks that have used this name, this particular ride will be all new to Six Flags. This appears to be a higher capacity version of a “skyscraper” style massive propeller ride that will hold a total of 16 riders and swing them wildly through the sky 164-feet in the air at 52mph in seats that can freely spin 360 to flip you over and over.
    Ity is worth mentioning that in most cases, when you find a ride similar to this, it is almost always an upcharge experience like a Skycoaster or Slingshot ride, so it is nice to see Six Flags offering this kind of ride as a regular attraction. Look for it to be located between Supergirl and The Boss.
