Hallowfest Prep (SFSTL)

  

PREPARATIONS

It’s beginning to look like Fall at Six Flags St. Louis

Pumpkins can be found in the flower beds around the entrance plaza

Halloween colored flags up around the entrance area.  Note they don’t say Fright Fest like in past years.

Decorations around the Palace porch stage

All entertainment (including Love at First Fright) will be done outside this season

The cemetery looks a lot different this year

The hearse is back

The headless horseman is back too

More of the cemetery

Looks like the Trolls will be back this year, but will have a dedicated pathway

Pet Cemetary near Shazam 

The clowns have been relocated to DC Comics Plaza

The spiders have taken over the arbor tunnels


Decorations near Xcalibur 

There are a lot of net decorations around the park

Decorations near the Minetrain 

The stage has been set near Batman.  We’ll see if it is for the Sideshow as in year’s past or not

The Grand Ole Carousel (SFSTL)

 

Six Flags St. Louis has finally started the long overdue complete renovation of their classic carousel

During this process, the carousel will be out of service

They have set up a display with an already completed horse near the carousel

This particular horse is named Able

Also on display is some history and information on this historic carousel.  It was the #37 carousel built by PTC.  The renovation is said to continue during the off season with the hope that the carousel can debut later in the 2021 season

Riptide Raceway (OOF)

 


While the season might be over and Oceans of Fun never did open for the 2020 season, construction on Riptide Raceway continued

The now completed ride will debut in 2021.  Here are the launch bays at the top of the ride.  Notice how they are equipped with stoplights to signal when to go

Looking down at the slides from the loading area

It’s a very twisted pathway down to the bottom

Serpentine curves for each of the four sides


The run out at the bottom of the slide.  Riptide Raceway is scheduled to open with the rest of Oceans of Fun next spring
