      On a recent vacation to St. Louis, MO, my family and I spent two days and the theme park Six Flags. What a frusturating ordeal!

      Parking cost a astonding $14 USD a day in general parking, and if you wanted to be closer, parking cost $20 USD a day for preferred parking.

      Before entering the theme park, we had to go through security, metal detectors, bag checks and then gate entry. We wanted to get a two day pass, but the 6 day pass was cheaper. However, for the 6 day pass, we had to get our pictures made and get a card like you would for a season pass. Do this we got our receipts from the gate, had to walk half way through the park to find a small building where our passes were made. We had to type our information on a computer and then wait in line for some one to take our picture and print our cards.

      After this, we wanted to put our swim clothes and towels in a locker


      while we rode rides in the amusement park, however we could not use the lockers at the front entrance of the park. This is because visitors are not allowed to walk from the connected water park to the theme park in a bathing suit. So we had to find the water park area, locate the lockers, pay $11 for the smallest locker they had, get an electronic wrist band that opened the locker and go back out to the rest of the park.

      When we entered the park, gate attendents said that Six Flags now offered a free wrist band that was reloadable (with money). This wrist band was said to be water proof and accepted at most eateries and shops throughout the park (”with the exception of a few street side vendors”). We loaded $100 USD on the band at guest relations. *We had to get our hands stamped, go through the exit gate to wait in line for guest relations and get the band, only to reenter the park after receiving the band.

      Come lunch ...


      • time, we went to the Panda Express Chinese Diner in the park, each got a tray and preceded to pay with our wrist band. We had $50 USD of food (3 people, 1 plate each- Outrageous prices!) and they did NOT accept the wrist band. I had to leave my food with the rest of my family in the restaraunt, cross the park, exit the gates, wait (again) in line at guest relations, cash in the wrist band for all of the money on it, go back across the park and pay the lady for our food (which by this time was cold). Are you kidding me?

        After lunch, we went to the water park for a couple of hours and enjoyed our time, even though it was crazy crowded. However, when the water park closes at 6pm., so do the lockers in that area. So we had to get dressed in to our “street” clothes and take our swim clothes out of the park and to the car (we were not going to pay another $11 for a

        locker on the amusement side). After going back through security and reentry into the park, we had fun.

        There were plenty of restrooms in the park and the A/C buildings offered an escape from the heat. The rides were creative and FUN. I especially enjoyed Xcaliber and the Tornado (waterpark). The second day in the park was not nearly as frustrating, because we already had the kinks worked out. We did get stuck on the Scooby Doo ride, but were never in any danger and the ride was worth it. The lines were short- the longest wait being 40 min for the Scooby ride (because of the breakdowns). We did see the Batman rollercoaster stuck upside down with riders on board… thank goodness they were safe.

        Despite all the expensive food, frustrating gate entry, and wrist band/locker problems, I can not wait to go back. The park is well worth the entry price and is a blast for adults and children alike. Now we know what to expect the next time we decide to hang out with a Looney Toon.
