Power Hours (SFSTL)

 


Welcome to Power Hours at Six Flags St. Louis.  Here is a list of things that are available, including rides and restaurants

The main party takes place in DC Circle near Justice League

Around the park, the rides have special lighting.
American Thunder

Shazam!

One of the arbor tunnels is all decked out in lights

Near Miss Kitty's Saloon

Xcalibur

Night rides on the Boss are epic

Boomerang lines are much shorter at these events

Night rides on Screamin' Eagle are amazing.  Pitch black

FireBall has a great light show

Ninja looks awesome with its lights

Not many people in this area, but I really liked the Joker's face in the distance

Palace Gardens with Colossus in the background

If you like to marathon coasters, this event is definitely for you.

 

Some interesting developments are happening at Batman the Ride

After years of having a super long queue, the park has finally installed a shortcut

In addition, they have added this large cement slab that has the Batman logo in it.  We suspect that the Batmobile is going to find a new home here

Here's looking back the other way.

We'll have to keep an eye on this area this summer.

Near Boomerang, the new sitting area has opened.

Speaking of Boomerang, it also has divider panels with windows like at Batman

Deconstruction continues at Superman Tower of Power.  The queue area has been completely stripped of decorations and even queue line railings.

It appears that wiring is being removed as they slowly take down this former attraction

Finally, the park has admitted that the Moon cars will not be returning.  This sign is now posted at the former entrance to the ride

Project 2022 (SDC)

  

Let the speculation begin.  We have a brand new fence up that stretches from the old Waterboggan tower all the way to Fireman's Landing.  What could be happening here?
