Park News - (8/19/20) It appears that most of the Six Flags parks who opened for the 2020 season will be having a HALLOWFEST event this October. The list of park’s confirmed so far to have it include Six Flags Great Adventure who announced it on Monday, along with Six Flags over Texas, SF over Georgia, SF St. Louis, SF Fiesta Texas, SF America, and Frontier City.
In short this will be a social-distancing friendly Halloween event with no indoor haunts or shows, with a focus on outdoor scares, entertainment and atmosphere, but with strict social distancing rules. Face masks will be required for everyone, staff and guests. You can visit the official site for more details about what will be involved at each location and the dates at SixFlags.com/Hallowfest .
(7/3/20) A guest who visited Six Flags St. Louis did confirm to us that Xcalibur is indeed finally open once again after sitting closed for the past few seasons.
You can see a brief clip of it in action in the video below.
(6/29/20) One of our readers dropped by Six Flags St. Louis this weekend and sent back a couple of pictures, one showing off the revised park entry pathway out front. The other photo shows a big empty lot where the park’s former Tidal Wave attraction used to be. It is also worth noting that the park entry has a new Six Flags sign out front featuring a mini St. Louis Arch going over the Six Flags logo which is pretty neat and the park itself has posted a great photo of the new sign on Twitter that you can see below as well.
As for the park experience, they reported back that entry through the new health checks was quick and efficient and otherwise things seems to be fairly smooth all day, all things considered under the current restrictions.
(6/23/20) According to this local news article the attached Hurricane Harbor waterpark at Six Flags St. Louis is now set to open to guests on July 10, 2020. Admission will just be for members and passholders from July 10-12, and then for everyone else afterwards.
(6/20/20) According to Screamscape sources, just before all the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders took effect, Six Flags St. Louis was said to be testing their Xcalibur ride, a well as training staff on how to operate it. With the park set to reopen, I’m told training resumed so it is possible the ride will be running once again on opening day after sitting closed for the past few seasons.
(6/10/20) Six Flags St. Louis has announced that the theme park will reopen to Members and Passholders from June 22-25 and then open to the public starting on June 26th. Reservations are required in advance before you can visit.
(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.
2020/2021 - Catwoman Whip - (6/18/20) According to Screamscape sources, it appears that the new Catwoman’s Whip ride that was supposed to be going to Six Flags St. Louis for the 2020 season is now on long-term hold. Six Flags stated several weeks ago that some 2020 attractions would be delayed until the 2021 season and it looks like this may be the case with Catwoman’s Whip.
Why do we say this? According to our sources, all the parts and pieces of Catwoman’s Whip had been delivered to the park and were sitting on site waiting to be assembled. That all changed when several trucks arrived the other day and appeared to have loaded it all up and hauled the ride away to an unknown destination. If they intention is still to install it for 2021, then I would guess the ride was put into long-term storage for the time being. Anyone know more?
(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 360º 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.
