Six Flags St. Louis - Joker Update


There is not much progress going on at the future site of The Joker

The biggest thing that's happened so far is the complete removal of all concrete and other components left over from the former Dragon's Wing sky coaster

Some preliminary ground work has started, and the ride envelope is being cleared of all trees

There are marker flags all over the site

Here you can see some of the side of the hill

These things can come together very quickly, so once they have footers and the base poured, it can pop up basically in a few days.  It will be interesting to see when it actually opens this season

Six Flags St. Louis


Welcome to a brand new season of thrills at Six Flags St. Louis

As is normal, we made our way up to Catwoman Whip to start our day

Next we went next door to ride Screamin' Eagle

Rookie Racer was our next destination

Followed by The Boss

Mr. Freeze was only running one side today

After Freeze we headed over to American Thunder

Then it was time for Batman the Ride

Because we hate ourselves we rode Ninja for the first and only time this season

Finally we rode the Mine Train

Overall a pretty good day at Six Flags St. Louis

Six Flags St. Louis - Update


New EV Chargers have been added to the parking lot

The fountain received some attention and looks great

New look for Laclede's

New Coaster Coffee shop added to the Front Street Shops

Here's the counter on the inside for Coaster Coffee

New sign for First Cone

This year's map - no paper copies again this year

Some upgrades to this plaza

New wait time boards are located around the park

New game near Batman

Batman is still forcing lockers again this season

Joker Inc is The Mighty Buccaner this season

Definitely a different look

They finally took down the stupid billboard and reopened this pathway

I honestly do not remember the last time this pathway was open

The new patio seating area is open at the Outpost

New game where the Jacob's Ladder used to be located

The Mine Train plaza is much more open now

New fence for Mine Train and a new seating area

Still nothing at the former site of Xcalibur

I believe this is the only arcade in the park now

Basketball game is gone in Brittania

Most of the carnival games are now gone

These two still exist for now

There's visible progress on the Carousel

Maybe it will finally return this season?

New extended queue at Rookie Racer

This is the 2024 Unlimited Refills All Season Bottle

Here are the prices

Be warned they are charging a $0.99 surcharge this season on food purchases
(see bottom of the screen for their lame reasoning)

Looks like the catering structures are all screened in this season.  Maybe that will cut down on the bee problem that they have always seemed to have
