Six Flags St. Louis will open on March 29, 2013, with a new paintball attraction and an opportunity for guests to compete for a chance to be the first to ride the new Boomerang coaster when it opens this summer.
Bushwackers Paintball joins the park's lineup with four fields that can accommodate 100 players per session. The all-inclusive fee to play ($20.13 for an hour of play during opening weekend) includes paintballs, guns and protective wear. The terrain includes open fields, wooded areas, buildings, bunkers, facades, creek beds and retired Six Flags props and products. Players must be at least 8 years old, and anyone 17 or under must have a parent or guardian sign for them. After opening weekend, walk-up play is $35 for season pass holders and $40 for others and includes all equipment and an hour and a half of play.
Boomerang, the park's ninth coaster, will open on Saturday, June 1. The steel rollercoaster combines a mix of twists, turns and loops as it takes passengers up to 50 mph. Want to be among the first to ride Boomerang? Six Flags is offering a Coaster Capital Challenge during the park's opening weekend, March 29-30. Simply visit the park, pick up a game card, ride all eight of the current coasters and return your card to be entered into the drawing. Fourteen guests will be chosen to bring a guest and be one of the first to ride Boomerang.
Six Flags St. Louis begins weekend-only operation on March 29. The park is closed on Easter Sunday. Tickets for opening weekend are $20.13 when purchased online or in person with a donation of two nonperishable canned food itesm. Daily operation begins May 18, and Hurricane Harbor opens Saturday, May 25.
