Screamin' Eagle, Six Flags St. Louis - Review

Screamin' Eagle - Review

Six Flags St. Louis

Ride Facts and Info

A Single Out-and-Back woodie located at the back of the park and surrounded by trees.


Ride Layout

The lift hill begins just out of the station. At the top of the lift there is a tiny little dip that leads into an approximate 210-degree right-hand turn. The first drop is just over 90 feet and features some reasonable air in the back of the train. There then follows a small bunny hop which passes over the bottom of the lift.

Between the previous drop and the crest of the next hill, the track curves slightly to the left so that it is parallel to the station. The third hill is quite large and leads out into the trees. Unfortunately there is a small road to the right of the track, which kind of spoils the seclusion of the ride.

There then follows two bunny hops, which could possibly be a very small double-down; the second hop produces some nice air. The train the climbs up onto a left-hand turn, and then takes another drop that leads into a double-up (again this could be two small hills, it's hard to tell as they are very small.)

The train now races round an approximate 135-degree turn to begin its journey back to the station. There is then another drop, followed by a straight piece of track with a slight incline. The train then takes a small climb onto a right-hand turn, which features a good pop of air in the front.

The drop after the turn leads into a bunny hop, which also features some nice air. The train then takes a slightly larger hill that leads onto the brake run, and results in the ride ending with a sudden stop.


Ride Evaluation

Screamin' Eagle is a good out-and-back woodie with quite a lot of hills, and a good feeling of speed. The ride's good points are its location through the trees, and its trim brake free circuit, however, I was expecting a little more airtime.

The ride is quite smooth in the front and features one or two moments of moderate floating air. The back is a little rougher and slams you into the back of the seat quite a bit, but nothing too extreme.
