SIX FLAGS SAINT LOUIS

Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (7/24/22) Is Six Flags St. Louis removing the Banzai Pipeline slide from Hurricane Harbor? I’m told that the drop-pod slides that opened in 2012 have been closed, and the sign removed. The Six Flags app and website also no longer list it as an attraction at the park, and while you can see it on the park map graphic on the app there is no icon over it to click for more information. So for all intents and purposes, it appears that the slide may be closed for good for some reason.
(9/24/21) Would you believe I spoke too soon about taking down Superman at Six Flags St. Louis? A reader sent in a photo from the park taken over the weekend that shows off the former location of the Superman tower, and it is 100% GONE already! After leaving it standing idle all summer, Six Flags certainly didn’t waste any time bringing it down.
2022 - Catwoman Whip - (5/30/22) A quick review of the new Catwoman Whip has been posted to MidWestInfoGuide this week, along with a detailed report of how the operations work on this ride. Expect a long line as the ride only seats 8 riders per side of the giant arm, but you do get essentially two ride experiences as they will load a side, run the arm at full speed in one direction for a time, then stop with you stuck at the top for a bit while they load the other side of the massive arm, and then run it full speed in the opposite direction for another run before you stop at the bottom and get off again.
They also stop for a look at the new Adventure Cove inside Hurricane Harbor as well.
(5/28/22) The new Catwoman Whip ride at Six Flags St. Louis is now finally open after being announced and then delayed from the 2020 season due to the pandemic. The park has also added Adventure Cove to the Hurricane Harbor waterpark, a multi-level water play structure featuring tons of water cannons, geysers, a giant 750 gallon dumping bucket of water and four small slides for the kids.
(4/3/22) A couple of readers sent in some pictures shot inside Six Flags St. Louis showing off the new Catwoman Whip ride and the other nearby developments taking place between there and the front of the Screaming Eagle. (Photo credit for select images goes to Scott. S)
(3/25/22) According to Six Flags St. Louis the new Catwoman Whip ride wont be ready to open until “late Spring”. The park has also updated their website and concept art, confirming that the new ride will be located near the entrance to Screaming Eagle. Another reader posted a photo on Twitter showing it off inside the park.
(3/21/22) A local area reader claims that while driving past Six Flags St. Louis, they say they spotted the new Catwoman Whip ride already assembled. If anyone travels near the park and is able to get a picture, I’d love to see it.
(3/20/22) Originally announced for 2020, the fate of the Catwoman Whip attraction for St. Louis sort of fell into limbo during the pandemic, with some wondering if it may have been canceled outright. The good news is that Six Flags has confirmed that Catwoman Whip is alive and well and planned for the 2022 season.
The park website says it will be located between Supergirl and The Boss, however we’ve heard elsewhere that is old information from the 2020 plan (even the video on the page still says “Opening in 2020”) and instead Catwoman Whip may be relocated to the site of the former Superman drop tower instead. Stay tuned!
(1/15/21) While nothing has been confirmed by Six Flags yet, we’ve heard that Six Flags St. Louis is very likely not to open the planned-for-2020 Catwoman ride until the 2022 season now. If anyone knows more, fill us in.
(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.
