This is what the early afternoon line looked like on opening day just outside of Six Flags St. Louis. Why wait in this long line just to get into the park
? Here's a better idea: buy admission tickets online at a discount
, print them yourself and present them at the turnstiles. There are plenty of lines in which to stand once you enter the park. The most popular rides can cost you 60 minutes at peak times. Even purchasing lunch can involve a long, hot line. Do yourself this favor and take care of the admissions before you leave home. If for some reason you purchase online but misplace your ticket, follow this procedure: present the credit card used to purchase the tickets, a photo ID and your email receipt or order confirmation number.
